Hi I'm Alyson

I grew up in Utah. I studied at BYU. I love anything outside. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and just finished my third semester at BYU. I love to cheer, rock climb, sit in the sun, but mostly I love to laugh, I love anything that makes me smile. I love being with my family and friends, just company in general. I am planning to be graduate from college someday with a major in Business management. I love the Gospel more than anything in my life. The gospel IS my life. Without it I would be lost and miserable. I am currently serving a mission in Chile, and I am doing it because I love my savior, and I know He loves me. I want to spread this glorious news to the world! We are never alone:)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Christ. I believe there is more than just this world and I know that we are not on this earth simply by chance, but we are here for a purpose. I was born in the gospel, but as I have grown and learned of it's teachings I can't help but love it. It's wonderful to be able to know that there is more to this life. To know that we have a purpose and this life is merely a stepping stone on our way to Godliness. I think that if we're here, it's nice to have something to believe in, but more than that it's nice to have something greater than a belief. It's amazing to know with a surety that God exists and that God knows you and believes in you as well. I know that the Lord Jesus Christ died for me and for my sins so that even though I am not perfect, I can be forgiven and can someday be perfected in Him. All I have to do is try my best each and every day and someday I will be able to receive the highest degree of heaven and live with my Father in Heaven and my family eternally. This Gospel is truly amazing!

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I have tried to live the gospel everyday by being a good example to those around me. I watched other great examples like my siblings, my friends, my parents, and my perfect example, Jesus Christ and I tried to do what would make them proud. Often times I failed but I have always tried to be happy and show how much I love the gospel being by who I am and being the best I can be. I love people and I love helping. I try to help others and show them I love and care for them everyday because what's life if you don't love others? We're all here together and we all have the same purpose, to return to Christ, because that's how He wants us to be. He wants us to be worthy to return to Him, and what greater way to do that than to act as He would? Loving, serving and caring for everyone around Him. I have the opportunity to be a full-time missionary and I look forward to teaching what I believe to people of the world and I can't wait to spread the eternal plan of happiness. I am excited to bring the light to the world and help others see how important they are to their Father in Heaven and what great things are in store for their futures.
