Hi I'm Aly

I live in the UK and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to Jo and we have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls. I have reached that stage in life where my children are starting to leave home for university, to set up their own home and I have a son who is serving as a mormon missionary in Switzerland. I have been a keen sportsman throughout my life, at various times being involved in volleyball, table tennis, cricket and rugby, but these days I just amble around a six-a-side football pitch wishing my body would do what my mind tells it. I am a passionate supporter of Arsenal and football in general. My career is in IT and I enjoying being in a field that has changed beyond recognition in the, almost, thirty years that I have been involved with it.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 14 years old the mormon missionaries visited my home ans started teaching us. As a child I was accustomed to going to church and my mother had taught me the importance of prayer my whole life. The messages the missionaries taught us, seemed to resonant with what I knew about Jesus Christ and answered questions that I had as a boy about the purpose of life. When I was 19 years old I was called to serve as a mormon missionary in British Columbia, Canada. As I spent time talking to others about Jesus Christ and his restored church here on the earth it strengthened my belief in him, a belief that he is my Saviour and my true guide through life.

How I live my faith

I have the real privilege of serving as a Bishop in our Church. We have a lay ministry so I do this along side a full-time job. I really enjoy working along side the members in our ward and particularly with our youth who are aged 12 - 18. I strive to follow the example of my saviour Jesus Christ, trying to be the best person I can be and helping those around me. Which is the example my Saviour set.
