Hi I'm Atalie Moore

I grew up in Rexburg, Idaho with six brothers. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of six brothers. As a result, I learned quickly to hold my own. I have a twin brother and we also have another set of twins in my family. My twin and my oldest brother have fallen away from the church. As a result, I know how devastating it is to not have the light of the gospel in one’s life and contrastingly, the peace and direction available to one as they are faithful to their covenants. I enjoy singing and was a member of my high school choir. Perhaps as a result of having boys around, I have always loved playing sports. I started playing soccer and basketball when I was about five years old. In high school I tore my ACL, a vital ligament in the knee, my sophomore and junior year respectively thus cutting short both soccer seasons. Though this was a difficult trial for me, I learned a great deal from it and most importantly, I grew closer to my Savior as a result. Most recently, I've been attending college working toward a degree in nursing. Growing up, I've always had the desire to serve a mission and just recently I received a call to serve in the Dallas Texas Mission, Spanish Speaking. I'm really excited to hopefully be an instrument in the Lords hand in bringing His children unto Him through the light of the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, so though I don't have an incredible conversion story to relate, my continued resolve to follow the Savior may be just as inspiring. One of the main reasons why I am a member of the church is because of the ability for me to have real relationship with my Heavenly Father and thereby gain the help, strength, direction, and peace which He blesses me. I know that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ do in actuality exist for I have seen the answers to my prayers and felt the peace as a result of the gift of the Holy Ghost (which I received at baptism) that They have granted me time and time again. I know that this is His church which He established here on this earth.

How I live my faith

The church focuses a great deal on service to others. Though not a church organization, I was involved in a service group called The Key Club during high school. As a member of this organization, we did a variety of activities ranging from making blankets for the children’s hospital to raising money to sponsor a Hungarian boy so that he could attend school. Each month I visit two women who are a part of my congregation. This visit is dedicated to sharing a spiritual message and discovering and attending to the needs of those women. I report each month after my visits to the president of the women's organization who then notifies the bishop, the leader of our congregation. In this way, the bishop is made aware of any specific needs of the sisters each month. The men in the congregation also have this same system in place so that the bishop is made aware of any of the needs of the men as well.
