Hi I'm Allison

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently studying in graduate school to become a physical therapist. I believe the best lake in the world is Lake Powell. I love many things: I love to hike and play tennis, I love learning about health, exercise, nutrition and the gospel, I love spending time with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that is Mormon but as I have grown up, I have had to chose for myself whether to continue to live the way the restored gospel of Jesus Christ teaches. Through putting the teachings of the gospel to the test, through prayer and action on what is taught, I have felt the truthfulness of the gospel. The restored gospel of Jesus Christ offers more truth than any other organization on earth, be it the purpose of life, that God is my loving Heavenly Father, that I can speak with God through prayer, or that I can live with my family forever. The gospel teaches me what Christ expects of me, which is so important when living in a world that teaches so many different and confusing things about Christ and the purpose of this life. Through living by Christ's teachings I have more peace, joy, and happiness in my life. I have seen the blessings that have come from living the gospel and they strengthen my testimony. I am Mormon because I have lived the principles that are taught in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have learned for myself that they are true. I am Mormon because I know this is truly Christ's church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively looking for and participating in good things. Everyone in the church has opportunities to serve. Some of my opportunities have included organizing fun social events for young single adults, planning the day and time for my ward group to attend the temple together, and visiting other women in my ward to make sure they are doing well and are taken care of. On a more daily and personal level, I have daily scripture study, pray, attend the temple, and try to be a positive influence.
