Hi I'm Ali Wood

I'm a student at a University. I am a wife of one year. I live in an apartment. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student just learning to balance work and school. I added a husband to that delicate balancing act last year. I enjoy up-beat music, fantastical books, and trying new recipes.

Why I am a Mormon

I do what I do because I love God. I've seen too many blessings in my life to not be a believer. Everything denotes there is a God, from the beauty of the earth to the beauty of the human mind to learn, grow and adapt. I continue to choose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because this gospel is true. I have felt and continue to feel of my Savior's love in my life. There have been tough times in the past where I felt bruised and broken by life, but I never felt alone or abandoned. God allows me to love like I've never been hurt, and that's a real miracle. God is there, he loves us, and he longs for us to seek him. Seek Him and you will find Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one choice at a time. I always seek to make myself available when I see a need. This church operates on the volunteer work of the members and this is part of what makes this church so unique. Serving over the years growing up so far has given me the opportunity to do many things like planning activities for the youth, leading the hymnals at church, teaching Sunday School, being one of the leaders, and simply being an active member and participating in the activities that promote unity among the members.

What is the Relief Society?

Ali Wood
The Relief Society is a sacred organization in this church for all of the women 18 and older. On Sundays, we meet together for an hour and have a Sunday school lesson, but our work is not limited to Sundays. We, as sisters, do just what the name says: We provide relief for the downtrodden, weak, sick, afflicted, we seek out the lonely and share love, we pray for all of our fellow brothers and sisters. As a Relief Society, we always try to see to it that the needs of each individual sisters are met. We seek to serve with the same service Christ served with, Charity. Show more Show less
