Hi I'm Alison

I love spending time with friends and family, enjoying nature, laughing, and serving. Most importantly, I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I have been recently going through many medical challenges, but am learning much about myself and others! I served as a missionary in the Kansas Wichita Mission, which was an incredible experience! I just got married in the Bountiful Utah temple to my high school sweetheart. I love spending time outdoors, playing piano and organ, spending time with family and friends, learning new skills, and watching romance movies (especially the ones on the Hallmark channel)! I love sports such as snowboarding, soccer, basketball, tennis, and cross country, and enjoy meeting new people through those activities. My favorite animal is an elephant, my favorite color is blue, and my favorite food is fruit. That just about sums up me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the overwhelming peace and complete joy I have felt through gaining knowledge and a testimony of Jesus Christ and His church. Becoming closer to Jesus Christ and God through the scriptures, church worship, and daily living has allowed my life to have so much more purpose and direction. I have Christ as an example to follow and emulate my life based on His teachings and example. And as I have gained that desire to serve others and become more like Christ, I have been filled with so much love and the understanding that Jesus Christ loves each of us so individually, and that He suffered on the cross for us that we can all be forgiven of those wrongs we have done and be resurrected. I am so eternally grateful for that sacrifice, and the ability for me to repent (because I am definitely NOT perfect). And this knowledge has helped me to make decisions in my life and live my life according to my beliefs, and not be tempted by the things of the world.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of the LDS church because it revolves so much around Jesus Christ and emulating His teachings and example, which is through serving others. All of the positions in the church are volunteer, and I have had the opportunity to serve as organist, music director, member of a women's activity committee, and president of various young women's groups. Outside of the church, I participate in many service-oriented outlets, such as visiting an assisted living home weekly, organizing/participating in a community food drive, etc. I think the best way to show my faith in Jesus Christ is serving others, and I try to focus my time and energy on doing that to the best of my ability, and the results are amazing!
