Hi I'm Allie Thompson

I'm an avid reader, I love to sing, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing, and music in general. I served in the California Carlsbad Mission. I am going to college. I love to read and write. I am majoring in Elementary Education. I love little children and really want to help teach them and help them learn and grow.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of loving friends and family. I struggled with life for a very long time. I never could find that true happiness. One day I actually started reading The Book of Mormon. It was my first time reading it, and I really wanted to find out for myself if all of this was true. Page by page, I read of stories of others who struggled and who learned and grew. People just like me. I became so involved in the book I had a hard time putting it down. The power that came out of those pages told me and helped me see that what I was reading was true. This church changed my life. I have never been so happy, or had such a loving enviornment as I did at church. As i served a mission, i had the oppertunity to help others come close to God also. I got to be a special second hand witness of the Church changing their lives. I know that what I believe is true. God lives. Jesus is the Christ. We can be with our families forever, and there is a living prophet on the earth today to help lead and guide me.

How I live my faith

 I'm just like any other person out there. I look for ways to help others. I love to teach the little 3 year old children. I have been for awhile. I learn a lot from them. Teaching children helped teach me the basics of my faith. I have learned how to teach my children I will have someday. I am just a normal face in the crowd. To others I may not look like I have it all, but I have the most important thing anyone could have, and that is a knowledge that God loves me, His church is on the earth today. There is a Prophet of God who leads and guides me. I am so grateful for every blessing I've recieved by living Christs teachings.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Allie Thompson
The Book of Mormon, is another testament of Christ. Comparable to the Bible. While the bible was being written in Jerusalem, the Book of Mormon was being written in the Americas. What the Book of Mormon shows us is that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. That he cares about ALL his children the same, and is an unchangable God. It says out of the mouth of two or more witnesses the Lord will make known his truth. The Book of Mormon only confirms the things that the Bible says. It is also simpler to read, making the Gospel of Christ easy to understand. It has given us further insight on the true meaning of the things it teaches so that we know the truth. I have read the book, I testified to others about it. It is the word of God.  Show more Show less
