Hi I'm Ali

I grew up on a small farm in Idaho. I played softball in college. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up on a small hobby farm with mainly cows and pigs. I have a family of three brothers and parents that love me. I participated in sports most of my life and earned a scholarship to play softball at a Junior College in Idaho where I studied Animal Science and have since served a mission for the LDS church.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon and born into a strong Mormon family. Although surrounded by the beliefs of the church I struggled through high school and first year of college to understand and know for myself that they were true and important. During this time of my life I made mistakes that led me down a dark lonely road. One Sunday I had a prompting tell me I needed to go to church. It had been about a year since I had gone, and it was then I felt the Spirit tell me that the church is where I would find the light that I wanted in my life. Soon after I met the bishop and he helped me work through some of the mistakes and understand that I wasn't alone through this battle with sin. Jesus Christ has felt the pains that I was feeling and knew what I needed so that I didn't hurt anymore. I found the light in Christ, I leaned Him to help me through that time to find new friends that would be better influences for me and to change some bad habits I had developed. He helped me resist going back to those habits. This experience is what drove me to serving a mission. I was forgiven of all the mistakes that I made because of what Christ did. I want everyone to have this happiness and light in their lives! I love Jesus Christ! Through Him we are forgiven!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary in Canada! I meet people and share with them what I have come to believe and know. I help them understand that God loves all of His children and that through Jesus Christ's sacrifice of His life we are able to live with our Father in Heaven again!
