Hi I'm Allison Tracy

I'm a student at BYU. I'm a ginger. I believe that Texas is forever. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Texan. I believe strongly that Texas is the greatest state in the Union and that Texas is forever. I'm a student at Brigham Young University studying Medical Laboratory Science aka the greatest major there is. I get to work with blood and work in labs and do lots of cool stuff. I love running more than anything. I did cross country and track in high school and now I train for longer distances like half marathons and maybe marathons someday if I ever get there. I'm a sister to 2 older sisters and a younger brother and I love them so much. I'm also an aunt to the cutest baby girl in the world but I'm in no way biased.I love my family and am so blessed by them daily.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon was a choice I made, not something that was expected from me just because I was born as a member of the church. I made the choice myself to be baptized and to continue to live the gospel myself. There was a moment when I knew that the church is true. I had been studying and praying and everything just came together and I knew for myself that there was no doubt in my mind that it is true. I also chose to live the gospel because it makes me happier than anything else in this world. Every happiness and good thing that has ever happened to me came by choosing to live the gospel to the fullest. I can definitely feel a difference in my life when I'm living the gospel to the fullest and doing what I should and want to be doing. I can't imagine what my life would be without the gospel and I am so grateful to have been given this wonderful gift and I want to share the good news with others.

How I live my faith

I am going to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I've been called to serve in the Colorado Denver North mission and I'm so excited to go share the gospel I love so much. I've been so blessed to have the gospel in my life and more than anything I want to give this gift to others and I can do that by serving a mission.
