Hi I'm Allison Potter

I grew up in Southern California. I'm a student preparing to serve a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of four children. I grew up in Southern California and I love the sun and just being outside. I ran cross-country in high school and spent most of my free time being with friends, doing art, and having fun. I am now attending Brigham Young University as I prepare to serve a mission for this church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love this gospel. I have found happiness and joy in this doctrine that cannot be found anywhere else. I was raised in this church, but I have come to know for myself that it is the true church of God. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has taught me how to pray and receive answers. I have come to know of God's love for me individually and how He hears and answers my prayers. I have a Savior that lived a perfect life and died so that I might be able to repent of my mistakes and receive comfort from Him. This knowledge has helped me grow and find joy in my everyday life. I am so thankful for the comfort I receive in the knowledge that this gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being true to the standards of this church. I do my best follow the example of Christ and reflect Him in my thoughts and actions. I have a calling in the church to help coordinate monthly visits among the women in our ward so that we can all grow closer together and have someone to lean on when times are tough.
