Hi I'm Ali

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am just recently Married to my lovely husband, and am finding so much fun and value in our commitment to each other. we love bicycles, long boards, Hayao Miyazaki films, video games, playing D&D occasionally and sushi. It is awesome to come together and show each other our passions and even more awesome for those passions to become mutual. My dad is very musical and has been my entire life. I'm not sure if it was his influence or just something innate in me but I definitely picked up that same niche. I have always loved to sing ever since I was a young child. I remember singing and feeling like my heart was going to explode because it just made me feel so happy. In high school I sang in a little indie rock band my friends and I made. it was a lot of fun and made my love for music turn into something more personal to me and I began writing songs and learning to write music on the guitar. I'm not currently in any band but I still do find myself writing lyrics then fitting them to something I wrote on the guitar. then if I ever need a "professional" opinion, I just have to call up my dad.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky to be born into a family that was sealed in the temple for time and all eternity. My mom was a convert and my dad was a member all his life and they took me and my siblings to church every sunday. My Parents divorced when I was still pretty young and shortly after that my mother became inactive. So, even though I was born and raised in the church I didn't always have all the family support that usually comes along with that. It seemed that me and my siblings could very easily choose to go or not to go to church just by pleading with the right parent. I realized relatively early on that my membership in the church was my decision. my testimony had to be my own. So I tested it. There were times when I distanced myself from the church but I could never shake that I KNEW the truthfulness of the gospel, even when sometimes I wished I didn't. My heart wouldn't let me forget the times I had felt my saviors love for me, or felt with a surety answers to my prayers. At some point I decided to stop testing my testimony and to start holding it with pride. I have never been happier than when I have been actively serving my heavenly father by reading my scriptures, praying, and sharing my love and testimony with those around me. I love my religion. It is the true and everlasting gospel and I hope to keep learning and to keep progressing throughout the rest of my life and into eternity. My faith in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is what will get me there

How I live my faith

I try to be a good example of what I believe to be true. I try to fulfill my callings as they are given even when that is sometimes a scary thing. right now I am serving as the secretary in my wards Young Women program as well as their Music Specialist. it is a real honor to be able to serve the girls I'm working with and to get to know them. I hope I can be a good example to them and help build their testimonies by sharing myself with them.
