Hi I'm Aly

I am a small town Idaho farm girl. I love to teach children, bake, and be outside with my family. I am an Archer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a small town Idaho farm girl. I enjoy being outside on the farm and helping out with the animals. I did a lot of sports in high school: volleyball, basketball, track, ect. I love archery! I really love being able to teach others how to shoot as well as improve my own skills. I taught special education and developed a great love for those with special needs. I am also a baker. I love both of my jobs! I love my family and getting to spend time with them. I get excited when we have family reunions and family traditions to be a part of. My family means the world to me. They have helped me through some pretty rough times and I am so thankful to have them. I am attending college at Brigham Young University Idaho. Currently majoring in Graphic design and minoring in Visual Communications. I served a mission to Halifax Canada.

Why I am a Mormon

My family grew up in the church and as a child I heard the gospel truths and I was always told that they were true. I didn't think much of it until I turned 12 and I decided that I wanted to know if what I had been taught my whole life was true. Was the Book of Mormon true? Was God there? Was there a purpose in me being on this Earth? I decided to take Moroni's challenge in the Book of Mormon, which is found in Moroni 10:3-5. I read the whole Book of Mormon and prayed every night just wanting to know if it was true, was God there? As I prayed everyday while reading I began to be happier and I began to feel God's hand in my life. The day I read Moroni 10 I prayed and received a great feeling of overwhelming love and peace. It was the greatest feeling. I know that feeling was the Holy Ghost letting me know that yes this book is true and God loves you. I will never forget that experience. I know that this experience has helped me grow into who I am today and where I am in my life at this time.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in many different ways. I have actively participated in church meetings and callings. I have been in many different programs in the Church such as the Youth Program for the Young Women and the program for the women of our area over 18. I have participated in the Portraits of the Book of Mormon production put on by my Young Single Adult stake. This production has young single adults in the area act out different stories that are found in the Book of Mormon. It has helped me understand and learn more about the importance of the Book of Mormon and how to apply it in my life. There are numerous ways to live my faith and I find that one of the best ways is to remember the savior Jesus Christ and what he has done for me.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries from the church of have one main goal and that goal is to Invite! Missionaries Invite others to learn of the message they share and that they know is true. Missionaries share a message that is centered in Jesus Christ and his Atonement and what Christ has done for us. They invite people to learn about the Plan of Salvation or God's plan for our lives about where we came from, where we are going, and why we are here. They teach about Christ and the teachings he taught while he was on the Earth and how those teachings have all been restored and are found today on the Earth. They invite others to learn for themselves if their message is true. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mormon Missionaries proselyte to invite others to come unto Christ. They seek for opportunities to find people through proselyting. They seek to help others understand what we believe as well as come closer to their Father in Heaven who loves them. Mormon Missionaries volunteer their service for 18 to 24 months. They leave their home and family for that time so that others can then be with their families for eternity. Matthew 18:16 states that "in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established." The word of God is established today by Mormon Missionaries proselyting and finding people to invite to come unto Christ. Show more Show less
