Hi I'm Allyse Chipman

I love to laugh. I love my family and friends. I am serving a mission in Tacoma, Washington. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

To start, I am a sophomore in college and hopefully going to be in the nursing program. I love to play any sort of sport-especially softball! I also love to draw, read, hike, travel, and laugh! I spend most of my time with the people I love- my family. My parents are the BEST, and I have 2 younger brothers who I love (most of the time) :) I also have great friends who I couldn't live without. I love to be happy, and by having the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in my life, I can be happy. My life is not perfect, I certainly have weaknesses and challenges, but I know if I rely on the Savior I can overcome them and be happy! I love to find the good in this life, because it is meant for us to have joy!

Why I am a Mormon

I can think of a million different answers to this question, but I am a mormon because I know that it is the true gospel here on this Earth. It seriously has all the answers anyone could ever look for. This gospel makes me happier than anything else on this Earth. Being a mormon has truly blessed my life in a countless number of ways. I have always been a member of the church, but growing up in the gospel didn't automatically make me a mormon. I needed to find out for myself if I truly believed in this church. So I searched and I prayed and I read the Book of Mormon, and I found nothing but truth. I am truly amazed how the gospel works miracles in peoples lives. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, I know He is there to help me and comfort me throughout my life:) I love this gospel with all my heart- it is what makes me, me. :)

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday. I visit teach. I study my scriptures. I pray to my Heavenly Father. I always try my best to look for the positives- for the truths. I am preparing to go forth and serve a mission in Tacoma, Washington, and I cannot wait to share this incredible message of truth- and for people to accept it I do the things I do because I love my Heavenly Father and my brother, Jesus Christ. I am standing as a witness of God at all times and in all things and in all places. :)
