Hi I'm Avalon

I grew up in California. I I love the water. I belong to a mixed family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and am a student. I have lived in California all of my life and love the sun and the beach! I come from a family with divorced parents which is why I have biological, step and half siblings. It is a large mixed family but I wouldn't have it any other way! My hobbies include singing, swimming and hanging out with family and friends. I am a huge Disney fan and love going to Disneyland! I am excited to be serving a mission for this church in Santiago, Chile June 1st 2016.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church but have always had the choice if I wanted to continue attending or not. I have continued to be a member of this church because I know that it is true. Being a member of this church has brought me so much happiness and has helped me through some of the hardest times of my life. I know that we are children of our heavenly father and that we are on Earth for a specific purpose. I know that because God loves us he has blessed us with families which we can be with forever even after we die. I know that God has also given us modern day prophets and that he speaks to us through them. I know that Jesus is the Christ and the he lives. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that both the Bible and the Book of Mormon are true. I know that if we pray sincerely to God that he does answer our prayers. I love this gospel with all my heart and want to share it with everyone.

How I live my faith

Growing up in the church I have had leadership roles in our youth program and have helped teach my peers as well as help those that might have been struggling. I have also been apart of many community service projects that have been run by my church. I will also be serving a mission in Santiago, Chile starting June 1st of 2016.
