Hi I'm Aly

I grew up on a small island in coastal North Carolina. I currently live in Colorado. I'm a wife and mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time wife and mom to three crazy boys! We spend most of our time at some sort of ball field! I love being a mom of boys and find so much joy in watching them grow and excel at what they do. I am also a wanna-be crafter and photographer. I love to create things. Whether it's a fabric flower, a quilt, or a photograph of a child, creating makes me feel like I have value in this world. I love music and wish I were a better musician! I grew up in a home where music was always in the background of our lives, and I think it filled our home with a feeling of peace. I try to fill my home with that same peaceful feeling. I love watching a good movie or documentary and can think of nothing more fun than curling up on the couch with my husband and a bowl full of popcorn after the kids go to bed!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is Christ's church restored to the earth in its fullness. I know that our Heavenly Father lives and speaks to us today through prophets and apostles. I know that Joseph Smith is the prophet chosen to bring forth the gospel in the latter-days and that he saw God and Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true and it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that it teaches me about my Savior and that its teachings bring me closer to Him. I am a Mormon because I know that families are central to our happiness. I know that families can be an eternal entity and that through the blessings promised through the gospel of Jesus Christ, I can be with my family forever. I am a Mormon because I know that God and Jesus Christ are active participants in my life and that they are acutely aware of me and my family. I know that my prayers are heard and answered! I am a Mormon because I know that kindness and Christlike love are the basic principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that his love is what allows me to be here on earth for this mortal experience. I know that He lives!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to serve my family and my fellow men. I serve as the Relief Society president of my ward and love getting to know sisters I associate with. I live my faith by trying to be a good example to my friends and neighbors. I hope that through me, others can get a small glimpse of the love of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I live my faith by striving to be clean and pure in my thoughts and actions. I live my faith my trying to share the joy that comes through the gospel of Jesus Christ with others.
