Hi I'm Mallory

I grew up in Utah and now live in Virginia. I'm a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay at home mom to two young boys. We recently relocated to Northern Virginia after my husband finished his MBA program. In between playing and taking care of our boys, I am training to run my first 1/2 marathon. I also enjoy cooking and trying new recipes.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was raised in an active Mormon family. When I first realized this was the true church I was 15 participating in a reenactment of the pioneer trek to the west. I knew then that no one would put themselves and their families through such a struggle unless this was true. Unfortunately I lost that undeniable belief and for a few years struggled. It wasn't until I met my husband and prepared to be married and since going through the temple have I truly known this is the only true church. Too many times I have seen the work of the Lord in my life as my husband and I have struggled through difficult times and decision that there is no way to deny that how I am living my life is the right way. Building a relationship with our Heavenly Father has helped me learn many things about his gospel. I can honestly say that I am happy and I know that it is because of the choices I make that are in line with His teachings.

How I live my faith

 I attend church regularly and interact with others Mormon outside of church as well. In my ward I have the calling of helping provide service for those within and outside the church that are in need of extra help that have expressed their need. In the past I taught the 12-13 year old girls and how to be strong among their peers that don't carry the same beliefs.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

 Recently I was able to take a hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains. When I got to the top it was breathtaking. It was one of the most beautiful things I had seen. I knew right then that there had to be a high being that could have created such beauty. Also there have been times in my life that things cannot be explained except someone is watching over me and my family. I have thoughts promptings by a the Holy Ghost that have urged me to take one direction over another. These instances have proven to me that I know there is a God that loves us and watches over us.
