Hi I'm Allyn!

I believe in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

I am 25 years old finishing a bachelor's degree in december in theater specifically Costume Design. I would make this my life work but I don't handle the lifestyle or the stress very well. I am also being trained in medical assisting. I have a wonderful family, my mom and dad, and one younger brother. I love to dance and have fun. I also like shopping (as long as I have on comfortable shoes) but I can never like it as much as my boyfriend. He is a big part of my life and has been for almost 3 years. I am very blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a household already blessed with the gospel, although we're far from perfect. I have a fundamental desire to improve. First of all I know that I have a Heavenly Father who created me and loves me more than any of us can comprehend. I tend to get hung up on my own faults and weaknesses but with the gospel and the all-encompassing atonement the mistakes I have made and sadly keep making can be forgiven and overcoming those obstacles are what will make me live up to the potential that God sees in me- I am his daughter and I can be like him by learning and growing in this life.

How I live my faith

I love the opportunities I have in my ward to reach out to others. I am usually a shy person, but I greet people by the door and I also help plan activities on mondays for us to get together and hear and talk about the gospel and to do fun things together as single adults in the ward. I also think that everyday living my faith involves remembering what Christ did for me and about the tremendous opportunity I have to know about the restoration of the fullness of the gospel. To remember those things I pray and I read the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and the Bible and try my best to make decisions that will one day help me live with my Heavenly Father again.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

They are equal partners that work together and with Heavenly Father to help each other fulfill their divine potential. The husband is there for strength, and protection and for the Preisthood power which by sustaining his responsibilities a wife can have access to the Preisthood as well. Women have been given the gift of compassion and the blessing (although a painful one) of having children. Women get to truly experience the wonder of seeing a child become an adult and together with her husband they can raise their children to fulfill their divine potential. Show more Show less
