Hi I'm Ali

I'm a Mormon, a wife, mother, and recreation therapist. And I'm a happy lady.

About Me

I grew in lots of different places and love to see new places and meet new people. I lived in England, and served an LDS mission in Argentina. I'm a recreation therapist and love to play. I am married to my husband, Perris, and we have a young son.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon first off because I was born into a Mormon family. That family became Mormon because they heard missionaries teach and felt the truth of their message many years before. How grateful I am to them! Secondly, and more importantly, I am a mormon because I know it is true. I asked God in sincere prayer, and He answered me. It brings me joy to know the plan of God and gives me meaning to my life--knowing WHY I LIVE and what I can look forward to after this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person I can be...the best imperfect person I can be. I work with my husband to grow closer to the Savior and God by reading scriptures, praying, and helping each other improve and progress. I also am teaching my son to have faith in and believe in Jesus Christ and His prophets.

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

We are taught so much by a living prophet today. In 1995, the prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley announced a Proclamation to the World on the family. This declaration teaches us the importance of the family and specifically how God intends the family to be. Primarily as a wife I am to nurture the family, and my husband to provide for the family. We work together to fulfill these roles. Before we had a child I was the main breadwinner in the family as my husband was finishing school. Sometimes circumstances call for alternate arrangements, and the Lord blesses us for doing the best we can do. Show more Show less
