Hi I'm Alyson

I am a young adult author and a mom. I love to write, but my greatest masterpiece are my sons. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an artist which means my creative juices are always pestering me, even in the middle of the night. I love to paint and create beautiful images. I am a firm believer that what you see forms who you are. Knowing this, I strive to make all my paintings works of wholesome beauty that I would be proud to show my family, friends and public.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is a deep and lifelong commitment for me. I live a chaotic creator/author life and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints keeps me grounded and happy. I find peace in knowing that my Heavenly Father cares about me enough to answer my prayers and rescue me when I need it. I find peace in the scriptures where His directions are clear, making it easy for me to follow Him and teach my family strong principles.

How I live my faith

I never thought I could teach the gospel or be an effective member missionary. However, as I read the scriptures over and over, I began to find the words to say and be more comfortable bearing testimony of the gospel. I am no longer afraid to speak about my religion or about my standards I hold so dear. I found that as I lived my religion daily, total strangers would ask me what I believed and why I was so happy. Now that I am an author I find that my opportunities to talk about my beliefs has grown exponentially. Complete strangers know who I am from the inside out because they can see the faith I have radiate on my face.
