Hi I'm Allen.

I love music. I also have diabetes. And better yet, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love listening to nearly ALL kinds of music. I like to attend local shows whenever possible. I also enjoy being with friends, spending time with my family, and competing in a variety of sports. You could say that I'm about as average as anyone you've ever met. But that is not the case. I have lived with type 1 diabetes for over 10 years now and depression for three years. Both of these conditions have given me a unique perspective on life and have only strengthened my faith.

Why I am a Mormon

Obedience to Christ's commandments is the only way to be happy. Following the counsel of His prophets has led me to a fuller life and a way to cope with diabetes and depression. There were times when I felt it were better if I were no longer on this Earth. Those moments when I was literally unable to handle the misery and the pain any longer led me to some of the sweetest and dearest experiences I have ever had. I have felt what I believe to be but a small fraction of our Heavenly Father's love, and I want you to experience it too.

How I live my faith

Besides attending church on a weekly basis, I try everday to emulate Jesus Christ. I try to share with others the blessings that being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has given me.
