Hi I'm Allie

I'm a college student, a dancer, a missionary in the Washington DC South Mission, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Allison DeBry, 19 years old, and currently serving in the Washington DC South Mission, teaching the gospel in Spanish. Im a college student, and love to have a good time! Im really into music and love to dance. Really, I just love anything active- wakeboarding, hiking, snowboarding, swimming. You will always find me with a smile on my face, and I try to represent my Lord, Jesus Christ in everything I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know and love my Savior. I have been a member of The church my whole life, but I had to gain a strong belief for myself. I started off leaning on the testimonies and beliefs of my parents, but as I got older, I slowly gained a testimony for myself. When I read the Book of Mormon for myself for the first time, I kneeled down and prayed to my Father in Heaven, and like the promise found in Moroni, I prayed to ask God, if the Book was true. The Holy Ghost bore witness to me. I immediately felt so much peace. It was so strong and so real that I could not deny the truth of the book. As I strive to live righteously everyday, I come to find out more and more how amazing and loving our savior, Jesus Christ is. I know that my Heavenly Father knows my needs and my wants and everything about me. Im a Mormon because I am not perfect, but because of Christ, and the sacrifice he made, I can be forgiven of all my mistakes daily. This gospel has brought so much peace and comfort in my life and I strive to live the best I can everyday because of it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by smiling every day. One of the biggest lessons I have learned through going to church and studying the gospel, is that God wants us to be happy. He has given us commandments and guidelines to follow so that we can have true happiness. I live my faith by finding opportunities to serve others and bring a little light into their lives. I strive to be like my savior Jesus Christ and treat others as he would!
