Hi I'm Allie Benson

I am currently serving a mission in Tampa, Florida. I'm a dental assistant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Dental Assistant, Sister, daughter and friend. I played lacrosse in High School and sang in choir. I love people and spending quality time with them. I love going on adventures, traveling and trying new food. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this Gospel brings so much peace and happiness into my life. Because of the atonement of Jesus Christ I know I can be with my family forever. I know that when I make mistakes I can become clean again. I know who I am, a daughter of God with divine potential. This Gospel and my relationship with Heavnely Father and Jesus Christ help me to stay grounded in a world of changing views and values. I know the power of God, the priesthood authority, has been restored to the earth and because of that I can make covenants with Heavenly Father to help me obtain Eternal Life. I know all this is true because I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know Heavenly Father knows me and has a plan for me. I know if I follow that plan I can accomplish all I have been sent to do, that thought brings me so much comfort. I know I am never alone, I have a loving Heavenly Father, my brother Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost with me to help me and guide me.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission, devoting all my time and attention to the Lord and His work. I study my scriptures and am continually praying. I am learning to recognize my weaknesses and rely on the Savior and His atonement to help me overcome them. I invite others to come unto Christ and teach them how to strengthen their faith, repent, be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost and endure to the end.
