Hi I'm Ali.
I'm a sorority girl. I started my high school's robotics team. I'm a Mormon.
I am a college student. I was raised in the Church, but I come from a part-member family. Even though I have support from my family, I make my own choice every day to live my life in accordance to the Gospel. I choose to be Mormon, and especially since coming to college. I attend a secular college, and I have grown in my faith because I have to choose to be Mormon. I do all kinds of things for fun. Everything from knitting to kayaking, helping others to hunting with my Dad. Mostly I just like to spend time with my friends. I try to surround myself with uplifting people who encourage me to be myself and live my standards.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon by choice. I am a Mormon because I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the true gospel, that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that I am a daughter of my Heavenly Father. I have received a confirmation that these things are true by answers to prayer and the promptings of the Holy Ghost. I was exposed to the Church from a young age, but I do consider myself pretty well educated about other religions. What I love most about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that all of my questions are answered. I know where I came from, why I'm here, and how to get to where I want to go. I love the Plan of Salvation, and I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father that we have been blessed with the knowledge of it.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by striving everyday to live a life according to my beliefs. I rearrange my schedule to make sure that I can fulfill my church responsibilities and attend my meetings. I make sacrifices in order to worship my Heavenly Father, and I'm blessed for those choices everyday. I try to challenge myself to learn more about Heavenly Father's plan for me everyday.
