Hi I'm Allison

I am an Arizona girl at heart, but my heart is now in Nebraska on a mission! Is there anything better than being a missionary?!

About Me

I was lucky enough to attend BYU and learn from some incredibly people. I now get to continue to learn from my students as an English teacher. I am a sports fanatic, and firmly believe that one of the best times of the year is when all the sports are going at the same time. I love music and cooking, especially when I get to do those things for other people. My husband is my best friend and we are so incredibly blessed to have wonderful friends and family around us.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because, simply put, this gospel brings me joy. I know that may seem selfish, or simple, but the peace and overwhelming joy I feel when I study the words that are found in the scriptures testify to me of the truth and divinity of this gospel. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and that my Savior Jesus Christ lives, and because I know these things, I know that they want for me to return to live with them again. I know that by living by the gospel principles, I will be prepared and worthy to be in the presence of my Father and my Redeemer. I know that by asking with sincere intent, I can understand when I have doubts. I know that the temple of the Lord is a sacred place and that because of the temple, I can be with my family for eternity. I am grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the way it has saved me. I am grateful to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have been back almost one year from my mission in the Nebraska Omaha Mission. I had never loved anything liked I've loved my mission!! I have been a member of the church for my whole life, so I have had the opportunity to serve Christ and my fellow-men often! As I have become older, I have realized the purpose and the importance of serving those around me, and in the church, I have served as a visiting teacher- visiting sisters that live nearby to help them in their times of need and celebrate with them in their times of triumph. I have had many other callings in the church, but the most significant one to me as of late is the calling to be a missionary, and invite others to come unto Christ by joining His church on the earth today.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon, as it says on the cover of the book, is another testament of Jesus Christ. Just as Christ taught the Jews during his lifetime, He taught the people in the Americas when He was Resurrected. The Book of Mormon is in harmony with the teachings found in both the Old and New Testaments. This is because the Savior is the same, as are His teachings, regardless of where He is teaching. His prophets preach the same message whether in America, Jerusalem, or anywhere else in the world. This is because He loves us, and wants us to return to Him. In order to do that, we must know of His word and follow it. In the Book of Mormon, we can find answers to our prayers and truly find joy. Show more Show less
