Hi I'm Allison

I love to play basketball. I'm from Idaho and am not a potato farmer. I wish life was a musical. I'm a missionary. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Pennsylvania Pittsburgh mission. I was born in raised in the beautiful state of Idaho. I love to play all kind of sports, and absolutely love musicals! I l love to spend time with my family and friends! I love the outdoors, and going on adventures. I love everything about summer: hiking, swimming, camping, boating, everything! I did year of schooling at BYU before I left on my mission. I play to return after and want to pursue a career in radiology. I am the second oldest of 5 siblings who are my best friends. I absolutely love the gospel and know it is so important for each of us! I love sharing it with those in my mission!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to feel and learn that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us. I am a Mormon because I have prayed to know if they church was true, and have received multiple confirmations from the Holy Ghost that it is. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and contains all that we must do to return to our Father in Heaven. I know that Temples are the House of God, and inside of them we are able to make covenants or promises with our Heavenly Father. I know that the priesthood is the power of God. I know that we are given commandments to follow so that we can be happy and enjoy all the blessings that our Heavenly Father has in store for us. I know that he loves us and has a plan for each of us. I am a Mormon because all the joy and happiness that I have experienced in this life is because I live the gospel. I know I am the happiest when I am doing all that our Heavenly Father has asked of me. I am a Mormon because I know that the atonement is real, and I know that it can relieve us of guilt and shame. I know that Jesus Christ is real, and that he lives. I am a Mormon because I know the church is true!

How I live my faith

Living the gospel has been a choice that I have had to make each day. Because I have received a witness for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's restored church upon the earth, I choose each day to follow my Savior and strive to be like him. I live my faith by serving a mission, which means leaving my family, friends, schooling, work, relationships, and everything else behind to share the wonderful message of the gospel with others. I live my faith by saying daily prayers, studying the scriptures, attending my church meetings, paying tithing, serving others, and being an example to those around me.
