Hi I'm Mallory

I'm a college student, Texas native, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Texas, and I did not ride my horse to school, but I wish I did! That would be so cool. I absolutely love Texas. The queso, Dallas Cowboys, and even the hot/humid weather are things I miss while I'm away at school in Utah. I also love the mountains, actual SEASONS, and wonderful people Utah has to offer. I feel like my heart is always in two places at once! Some of my hobbies are hiking, extreme netflixing, and playing volleyball. I love college, and I'm currently a marketing major. Other than that, I enjoy being with my friends and family, and having fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel brings me genuine happiness. Through the best and worst times of my life, I have been blessed to always have a Heavenly Father to turn to. I was born in to a Mormon family, so I've always been close to the gospel, but I think I was truly converted when I knew God was aware of me. When I was twelve, my dad was diagnosed with cancer. I remember praying for comfort, and I felt peace that I knew could only come from Heavenly Father. I knew He was aware of me, and I knew that I would be ok with whatever happened, because the divine creator of the world was aware of me and my trials. I continue to do my best to follow His gospel because it makes me a better version of myself. When I am striving for knowledge from the scriptures, or when I am helping others, I feel lighter and the world makes more sense to me.

How I live my faith

I've been called to serve a mission in the Brazil, Fortaleza East Mission. I am overjoyed to serve the people of Brazil for 18 months! I love this church because of the relationships you build at church on sundays and at church activities. It's so nice to have a support system that extends past your family to people that have the same beliefs as you.
