Hi I'm Allison Engel

I am a stay at home mom. I love to run. I love to sew. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right after my husband graduated from college he was unemployed and I worked to support our little family at the time. After 8 long months of not finding a job we decided to make a long trip across the country where he found a job after a 6 more months of looking. During all of that we were wanting to start a family and unable to. Now we have a job and a 6 month old son.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a member of "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints", but came to realize that I needed to decide if this was the way for me. After much prayer and studying I knew that this was what I needed and wanted in my life. I came to know for myself that Christ's church had been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith and that we have a living prophet today, Thomas S Monson. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and I find that it is easier to live the gospel of Jesus Christ than to not live it. It has helped me be a better wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. I love that I am guided daily by the Holy Ghost. The decision to be a member of this church has been a decision I have never regretted.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I have been able to work with children and teach them about the gospel but I learn more from them than I can teach them. They have helped me know the importance of being meek and humble. Not only have these children blessed my life but I have been able to work with so many different age women. I have made some of my closest friends by visiting with these women one on one. They have changed my life.
