Hi I'm Alana

I love to read, sew and walk. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Alana but my family calls me Lani. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, an aunt and a friend. I am 23 years old and I stay at home and care for my son. I am married and currently helping my husband get through law school. I am the second of 5 kids. I love to exercise and be healthy, even though I often find it hard. I grew up in the church and I love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to live faithfully in the church because of the peace and the joy it has given me in my life. I grew up with wonderful parents teaching me the gospel and reading with me the words of the prophets from the Book of Mormon and the prophets of the Latter-days. We have been given this wonderful blessing of having the restored gospel on the earth. I know that this is the same gospel that Christ taught while he was on the earth. We are constantly being led by our Father in heaven. He loves us, He wants us to return to live with Him one day. He hasn't just left us on earth to fend for ourselves, He created a plan for us, a plan of happiness. I know that if I do all I can here in this life I can return to live with Him again. I can be with my family because we have been sealed for time and all eternity in the temple of God. I'm a Mormon because the gospel is true. The Book of Mormon is true. We have prophets and apostles on the earth today that guide us. We have the power of the priesthood which has blessed my life beyond measure. We are all children of God and being a Mormon helps me to remember that each and everyday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. I do the things that bring me closer to feeling happy each day, such as praying and reading from the Book of Mormon. I am a member of my ward choir and I enjoy the opportunity to sing hymns of praise about our Lord. I teach the children ages 6 and 7 about the scriptures and how to choose the right and follow the example Jesus Christ gave us while He was on the earth.
