Hi I'm Allison Astel

Hi, Im Allison. I love life, laughing, and adventure! and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a large family. I have seven siblings and i am the third oldest. I love having a large family because, there is always someone to do something with! I enjoy being active and playing sports! In high school I played volleyball and basketball and i loved every second of it! I am always up for a good adventure, I love swimming, hiking, and being outside. Summer is my favorite season because of the warm weather and activities! I also have received a mission call to the Italy, Milan mission. I will be reporting to the Provo, Utah MTC in 1 week! I love traveling and experiencing other peoples cultures, so Italy is the perfect place for me! I love being a Mormon and i couldn't be more excited to share the happiness it brings me with others!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why i am a Mormon is because of the pure happiness it brings to my life! Without this church my life would have little meaning, but because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ i know what my purpose here on earth is! It brings me comfort in the fact that I know I am a child of God and that he loves me! This church allows me to grow closer to my Savior. It also gives me a chance to thank him for the sacrifices he has made for me! Another reason I love being a Mormon is because I know that my family can be eternal and that we can live together forever! What a great comfort and blessing that is, to know that the people I love and call my family will be with me forever! I also believe the Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that we continue to have a prophet of God on the earth today! It is such a blessing to know that we have a leader that receives divine inspiration from God for the entire world. I am also grateful to know that we too, can gain revelation for ourselves. im a Mormon because the Priesthood keys have been restored to the earth again and through that power we can make covenants with God! The Gospel gives me power in my everyday life and I can see the hand of God blessing me everyday! I know this church is true and it helps me to overcome the trials I have everyday! it is a blessing and a comfort to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I cannot thank my Heavenly Father enough for allowing me to be apart of his church.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by participating in my church meetings every week! i love partaking in the sacrament and the spirit in which I feel each Sunday! I also have had the recent opportunity to teach an 8 year old primary class! i enjoy having getting to know them better each Sunday! Also I live my faith in my everyday life. I try my best to be an example of Jesus Christ, and i cannot wait to be a full time representative of Jesus Christ.
