Hi I'm Connor Allison

20 year old from Idaho, currently serving in the Great California Ventura Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy photography and drawing and I intend to pursue a career in graphic design. I love playing sports, especially basketball. I'm currently serving as a full-time missionary for the church from September 2015 to September 2017 in the California Ventura Mission! I'm loving this opportunity I have to serve Heavenly Father and His children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and it kind of just became who I was. I was baptized and continued to learn more and more through my personal study, Sunday teachings, and seminary. I lived on borrowed light growing up, but I developed my own testimony of this Gospel by asking our loving Heavenly Father if it was all true. I developed deeper faith in Jesus Christ and I feel forever indebted for His Atonement. I just love the knowledge I have and the companionship of the Holy Ghost to guide me. This Gospel is the key to true and eternal happiness and it's hard to put in words the amount of gratitude I feel for my circumstances of life and the great people who are examples to me. But the sole purpose why I'm a Mormon is because I love my Lord, Savior, and Friend, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I've been blessed to take part in many callings in the LDS church, each with different responsibilities and blessings that come with it. I have had the wonderful opportunity of home teaching amazing families in my ward that I have come to know and love.
