Hi I'm Allen

I’m a former landscaper, a full time student and father of 4 boys. I’m married to the most beautiful woman ever. I’m a Mormon!

About Me

I am an applied biology major, working my way toward becoming a physician assistant while trying to be a good husband and father. I love camping, fly fishing and enjoying my Heavenly Father’s creations. I can’t wait for my boys to be old enough that I can share that with them more.

Why I am a Mormon

Raised in the faith, I never realized that I fully believed in the church. After high school I took a couple years to “live life my way,” only to find out that I was desperately missing a relationship with my Heavenly Father. I came to learn that the gospel of Jesus Christ is such a natural part of us that it is easy to over look or over think. The trick is learning to listen to the spirit and having the courage to do what we know to be right. Now I can’t imagine my life without all the benefits of being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have served in the church in many ways but the way I live my faith is by trying every day to be the man that my Heavenly Father wants me to be. It isn’t ever easy, trying to go to school, pay the bills, serve in the church and give my wife and kids all the love, support, and affection they need and deserve. In fact, I fall short all the time but when I do succeed it makes me feel like a super hero. I love to come home from a class and have my boys attack me with hugs!
