Hi I'm Allison McKnight

I have grown up in Dallas, Texas. I am attending school at BYU and I am a Mormon

About Me

My name is Allison and I am from Dallas, Texas. I am now living in Arizona. I love it so much. I enjoy spending time hiking, and practice yoga. I like to spend as much time with my family as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the peace and happiness that living the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings me. There is no greater joy in this world and I want to share my happiness with others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments. Each day I wake up and make the decision that I want to follow my Savior, Jesus Christ. I try to follow in his example by loving and helping other people. I do simple things like listening to others and running errands for those around me.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Allison McKnight
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is what makes it possible for us to be forgiven of our sins. It is a chance of renewal for each and every one of us. It is the most beautiful promise we have. No matter what mistake has been made we can be forgiven and be pure once again. Our loving Heavenly Father will forgive us and openly accept us. Sometimes this path is difficult but it will always be available to us. Jesus Christ atoned for our sins so we could become pure and live with Heavenly Father again. Our Savior suffered so we would not have to. Show more Show less
