Hi I'm Allison Adams

I grew up in Oregon. I went to high school in Germany. I am a BYU student. I am a Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing, listen to music, play tennis, travel the world, read, and just laugh all the time. My family moved to Germany after my freshmen year of high school. I have grown to love Germany and consider it home now. I love learning about other cultures. While living in Germany, I truly began to love this amazing world we live in. I had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and see many different cultures. I am a freshmen at Brigham Young University studying International Relations. Though for the next 18 months, I am taking a break from college and serving in the Belgium/Netherlands mission for the church. I am loving learning Dutch and teaching and discussing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the immense blessings and peace it has brought to my life. I have always been a member of this church and it has always blessed me with joy and knowledge of what this life truly is. I have been blessed with the knowledge that I can be with my family for eternity. I love my family and can not picture my future without them. I know the importance of service and love for all through the teachings of this gospel. I know that this life is meant to try us and teach us so we can return to our loving Heavenly Father someday. I am continually striving to become a better person so when this life is over, I can be welcomed into Christ's outstretched arms.

How I live my faith

I try to be a representative of Christ in everything I do. I live my faith by going to church every Sunday. I read the scriptures daily and pray all the time. Everything I do is centered around my beliefs, from the clothes I wear to the friends I have. I am nice to all those around me and learn to love them too.
