Hi I'm Sister Wallace

I'm an Army brat. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in this church by my wonderful parents. My dad's job moved my family all over the world while he was active in the Army and National Guard. I attended three different elementary schools, one middle school, and three high schools, moving right before senior year. I graduated high school in 2012 and moved up to Rexburg, ID to continue my education at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I'm a Communications major emphasizing in Public Relations in hopes of working among students as a Motivational Speaker to raise awareness about the dangers of bullying and suicide prevention. I love public speaking, reading, singing, dancing, and overall, performing. I also simply love being around my family and friends, regardless of what we're doing. I have been called to serve as a missionary in the Philippines Bacolod Mission and I am currently serving in Tangub. Being a missionary is the best calling in the entire world and deciding to serve was the best decision I have ever made in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon simply because I know this church is true. No other church could provide such an everlasting peace and happiness as the gospel of Jesus Christ, which is what The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is founded upon. I know that Joseph Smith, in the Spring of 1820, saw a vision in which he beheld our Heavenly Father and our savior, Jesus Christ, two separate and distinct beings. I know that through Joseph and his faith, the gospel was restored to this earth. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon, the great book of our day, another Testament of Jesus Christ, and the keystone of this church. I know The Book of Mormon is true. I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that He suffered and atoned in the Garden of Eden and took upon Him the sins of the world, past, present, and future. I know that He was then crucified and resurrected so that I might be able to return home to my Heavenly Father, if I have done all that he has asked of me, when the time has come for me to finish all that the Lord would have me do on this earth. I know that President Thomas S. Monson, the great prophet of this day, speaks for God and that everything he says is revelation from Him. I know that our Heavenly Father is a loving God. I know that we are all His children and that He is always there for us. I know that through Him, all things are possible. (Matthew 26:19) and I also know that He will help me to become the best person I can be if I trust in Him and do all that He has asked of me. I know that baptism and the other promises that we make to God in the temple are important and I know that through those promises, my family can be together forever. I have read the Book of Mormon, I have prayed about it, and the Lord has reassured me that the things that I have been taught are indeed true. I know, for myself, that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is true. And that is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have served in many callings including Beehive, Mia Maid, and Laurel President, Youth Committee Chair member, Seminary Class President, and most recently Family History Coordinator. I live my faith by trusting in my Heavenly Father when trials come my way. I share my testimony of God's love for His children when my friends are struggling and need support. Mostly, I work hard to ensure that I can receive as many of God's blessings as He is willing to give me. I know that without I can do nothing on my own, but will Him, I can do all things.
