Hi I'm Avonlea Dalley

I am a singer. I love adventure and to smile. I love families. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a fanatic when it comes to musical theater. I have been in many shows and I been performing ever since I was three. I love spending time outdoors and anything that leads to an adventure. I am on a mission in the Philippines. I plan to study music and get my major in Music Education and a minor degree in Nutrition. I LOVE my family and can't wait to have my own. I want to get married and become a stay at home mom and travel the world. I love anything that has to do with Europe, history, clothes, sites,the 1900-1960's era, and music. I have lived all around the country, but Utah will always be my home. I AM A MORMON!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I have been a member my whole life, I didn't know for myself that the church was true. During my teenage years, I tried to find happiness in other places than the church. I looked for it in friends, boys, theater, music, anything but my family, and so many other things, but I never did find it. Then during my senior year of high school,that all changed. I started having a true desire to know if this was the truth. I did an experiment and I started change my ways. I changed my friends, my type of music, my clothes, etc, and something amazing happened! I started to change. I read the Book of Mormon, I went to church and actually participated in the discussions, I prayed. I now KNOW without a doubt that this is the truth. WHY? because it changed me and because the Spirit of the Lord has testified of it to me. I am so grateful for this wonderful gospel. It has blessed my life in countless ways. It has blessed especially my family. Because of the gospel my family has peace, love and unity. My parents and siblings are my best friends thanks to the gospel of Jesus Christ! I LOVE BEING A MORMON!

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve in the Philippine Angeles Mission. I am preaching the Lord's gospel in the Tagalog language. This is how I live my faith. I have left my home, family, friends, and education behind so I can serve my Heavenly Father. I am helping others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ, repentance, baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and enduring to the end. I AM A MISSIONARY!

In whom should we have faith?

Avonlea Dalley
We MUST have faith in Jesus Christ! Faith is not just a belief, it is an action. If we have faith we will act. We will follow His commandments, we will do all we can to align our lives with His. If we have faith we can do "whatever is expedient" in Him (Moroni 7:33) Faith in Jesus Christ is the foundation to everything else; repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost and receiving the sacred ordinances in the temple.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Avonlea Dalley
The temples are secret, they are sacred. They are the House of the Lord. They only people allowed inside of the Lord's house are those who are worthy. We become worthy by following His commandments, develop faith in Jesus Christ, have repented, been baptized by the proper authority, and have received the gift of the Holy Ghost. Inside the temple, we make sacred promises with the Lord. These promises or covenants will bless our lives here and throughout eternity. Show more Show less
