Hi I'm Allie

I'm a Christian and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Latter-day Saint and was blessed to be born into the gospel. I am 20 years old and I am married to my sweetheart. We are both going to college and loving it! Even though I am young, through the Lord I am growing up to be the woman I am meant to be. I love to sing, play the piano, eat chocolate, and play basketball. I love being a wife and can't wait to be a mother some day. My husband and I love watching sports on TV, going on dates, and hiking! We love the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I've been a member my whole life, each individual has their own "conversion". There is a point where we must decide if we truly believe in the church we grew up in. I gained my own testimony of this gospel as I grew up. Through experiences, trials, pain and joy, I have learned that in order to make it through this life we need the Lord. If we come to him with a contrite spirit and broken heart, He will heal us. He knows what each of us feels, and He loves each of us. Each day I pray that the Lord will help me to become who I am meant to be. And if we do so, we will be our best.

How I live my faith

I strive to be my best daily. I try my best to patient, loving and kind towards others. When I see someone who is sitting alone, I go sit by them and help them feel loved. Each month I visit ladies in our ward to see how they are doing: if their temporal and spiritual needs are met and if I can help them in any way. I volunteer my time at the hospital each week, because this church has taught me that sacrifice brings true joy! And how true that is! My faith has taught me that education is important, for God loves an educated mind. I work hard in school. I strive to do the things that Christ would do and say the things that Christ would say.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

"Tithing is not so much a matter of dollars as it is a matter of faith" - President Gordon B. Hinckley. When we pay tithing, we are not paying the people that help our church function. No one receives any compensation whatsoever. The money goes towards helping the less fortunate, building temples and church buildings. Learning the beauty of sacrifice helps to put off the natural man in us. Show more Show less
