Hi I'm allie

About Me

I'm a photographer, I get to capture other peoples happiness in photographs. I come from a small and wonderful family. My two sisters are my best friends. I was the nerdy girl in school with straight A's and a love for learning. I loved being a part of the newspaper and yearbook staff. Always with my camera over my neck. I was determined after high school to move out and go to college and become some famous world traveling journalist. But my first semester at University lead me to my first failed class and first time in life without a plan or any direction. I was lost for over a year after high school, questioning what I should with my life. Until one day I realized that I was needed somewhere much bigger. So here I am today, with a mission call and with a plan, because this Gospel has provided it for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am one of the lucky ones, blessed with a courageous single mother who raised me in this church. I was taught every week at church that I am a daughter of God and that he loves me more than I will ever know. When my father pasted as a child this Gospel taught me that families are forever. That although my dad wouldn't be able to see me graduate, or get married, or have a family, I will see him again. That this isn't goodbye forever. I know that our Father in Heaven has a much brighter and bigger plan for us. I know that when life gets hard, and you feel alone He will always be there, to listen to you and comfort you. This gospel is my happiness. It brings hope to a hopeless world.

How I live my faith

I love attending church every Sunday. It is my light in this unpredictable world. Each week I get to teach children and listen to their simple beliefs about why they like coming to church. "It makes me happier" one girl said. The children teach me more than I teach them. This church brings her happiness and also bring me happiness with everything that it provides for me.
