Hi I'm Mallory

I grew up in Newnan Georgia, but I live in Utah. I'm serving in the California Ventura Mission right now and I am a mormon!

About Me

I'm 19 years old and I'm currently on a mission in California. Growing up we moved around a lot because my dad was in the military. A lot of my family members are in the military, including my brother who is currently deployed over seas. My family means a lot to me, especially my brothers. They are my best friends and I would do anything for them. I grew up in this church, but both of my parents are converts. I feel fortunate to have grown up in this church and I am forever grateful for those missionaries that found my parents and taught them so many years ago. But really, I'm just a normal girl. I love to dance! I do hip hop, contemporary, modern, jazz, and some ballet. It's the best! I love it so much! I also love to just be a goofball with my friends and make the most of every moment. Life is so precious so I try to make every second count.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I feel as though this is a loaded question that I could spend all day answering, but I will try and keep it simple. I know that this is the true church of God and that He is the head of this church. I know that the teachings of the church are true, and the way that "Mormons" live their lives, is the way that God wants us to live our lives. I know where I would be without the church. I know what kind of a life I would be living, and frankly that's not a life I want to live. The church is so wonderful, and living the teachings of the church brings me so much happiness. I'm a Mormon, because I know that it's what's right for me. I have found the true church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have such a firm testimony of this Gospel. I've seen this Gospel change lives. I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, lives and that He loves every single one of us. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that Christ restored His church on the earth through him. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, and through that book we can grow closer to God than any other book. I love this church. I know it to be true with all my heart. I don't know a lot of things in this world. I'm 19. I have a lot to learn. But the one thing that I do know is that this church really is true. I can not deny it. Nor will I ever deny it. Anyone can have a testimony of this Gospel if they simply ask God. I've asked, I got an answer, and I KNOW this is true.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by sharing it. Every day I go out and I share what I believe with other people. As a missionary, we share our beliefs every day with people who are not of our faith. And frankly, I love it so much! I get to see people change for the better because of this church. It's incredible. As a missionary I get to see so many miracles every day! I know that this is the true church of God and that is something that I can not deny. I know it, I live it, and I love it!
