Hi I'm Alayna Bone

I'm a hip hop dancer. I'm a human rights activist. I'm a political science major. I'm a full-time missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the second oldest of seven kids, and my older sister is my best friend. I grew up dancing in my mom's studio, and had the opportunity to try many kinds of dance. Out of ballet, lyrical, jazz, contemporary, tap, drill team, cha cha, swing, lyndi hop, quickstep, foxtrot, tango, mambo, rhumba, samba and many others, I fell in love with Hip Hop and have had the opportunities to coach my own team along with teaching classes at dance camps. I'm leaving to serve a mission in the Taiwan, Taichung mission April 1st! I'm so excited to serve and learn Chinese! When I return home i plan to attend BYU-I and BYU to get my associates in Political Science. Then I hope to study abroad and work with the Peace Corps.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know I am a child of God. The gospel of Jesus Christ is happiness, and although I can almost say there has never been a time in my life where I've been at peace with everything, knowing that Heavenly Father has a plan for me and can guide me if I let him has helped me so much every day when dealing with hard and stressful things. I can feel his love through my family and friends, and especially through the temple. Knowing that I can be with my parents, siblings, and my future husband for eternity is so amazing. Heavenly Father loves us so much. We can look around at everything he has created and see how much bigger it is than us, but know that it is exclusively for us. We are his masterpieces. His most prized possessions. He knows us individually and wants to bless us.

How I live my faith

I have a calling in nursery and on Sundays teach a group of 8 kids under the age of three about how much Heavenly Father loves them. Those kids have strengthened my testimony so much! I love reading the scriptures and being able to personally know my Heavenly Father through prayer.
