Hi I'm Allison

I'm a Mormon, a wife, & mom of 3 young children

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah and am happy to raise my family here too. Before getting married and having children, I graduated from college with a business degree and worked a few years in advertising. I loved that! I love being home now though raising three children. Besides the time I spend with my family, I enjoy running, cycling, and being with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the central focus of my life. I can't separate my membership from who I am. It is my life. It is me. I am thankful to have a knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel to base how I live and how I rear my family. I am happiest when I am following the commandments which I know to be given by God. I know I am a daughter of God. I know He loves me. I see His love all around me in simple, everyday things. Though I was born in the church, I have gained my own testimony of its truthfulness. I know Joseph Smith saw God and His Son, Jesus Christ. I have read the Book of Mormon and know it is true. I know families can be together forever. I know we have a prophet today who receives revelation from God. If I were asked why I was a member of Christ's church or why I choose to live His gospel, I guess the simple answer would be because I have a conviction in my heart that it is true and because I know that despite life's trials, through the gospel I can be truly happy.

How I live my faith

I feel I have been lucky to work with the youth in the church for the last few years. I was in charge of Girls Camp in our area for girls ages 12-18. What a blast! It is awesome to be in the outdoors, observing nature and seeing all that God has created.

What is faith?

Faith is the first principle of the gospel. If you have faith in something you do not have a perfect knowledge of it, but a hope for it. Faith is a hope for things which are not seen which are true. Show more Show less
