Hi I'm Allison

I'm a Washington D.C. South missionary from Washington state. I love Indian Food, boating, and traveling. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I grew up in small town central Washington in a loving family or 6, plus our pet turtle and parakeet. I spent time playing soccer, dancing, boating, and listening to country music. I don't like sitting still and that might be why I love to travel. Feeding wild sting rays and swimming with sea turtles have been highlights! Eventually I went off to BYU, but am currently taking a break to serve as a missionary in the Washington DC South mission! Being a missionary and sharing the gospel is the best.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the gospel. My family has always been active and I grew up attending church. My parents raised me in the church, and I and so happy that they did. I know that the gospel of Christ is there to bless the lives of anyone and everyone that is willing to look for it. When people ask me what makes me happy, I already know the answer. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy. The plan of happiness makes me happy. Through our savior, Jesus Christ, we can be cleansed, forgiven of our sins, and perfected. We can gain eternal life. The blessing of the gospel are endless. I know that the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is Christ's restored church on the Earth today. I know that he leads and guides his church and that it was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that God answers prayers and is always there to listen and comfort us. I know that trials help us grow and develop into the people that we need to become and I am thankful for them. I also know that families can be together forever. I love this gospel!

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ is the perfect example. When we strive to do the things He did, we can have lasting happiness. I live my faith by striving to follow the example of the Savior. Scripture study, prayer, and attending church have played a big role in helping me come to better know the Savior.
