Hi I'm Allie Winter

I'm from Utah and I love the outdoors. I will be serving a mission in Alabama starting September 2016. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I currently just finished my freshman year at Utah State University and absolutely loved it there. I love anything to do with sports and I could watch/play them for hours on end. I love getting to know new people and love to hear cool stories about their lives. My family and friends mean everything to me and I know I would not be where I am today without them. I'm a huge fan of the outdoors and love to go camping and four wheeling. So yeah that's a little about me :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me so much happiness. I grew up in the church but was not active for some of those years. Being active now and seeing the happiness I have and looking back to those years when I was not active really made me realize how much I need the church in my life. The church has provided me with good friends and has really helped my family in times of need. I have grown a testimony and I know without a doubt that this is the true church. The whole foundation of our church is Jesus Christ and I have grown to love Him and be mindful of His atonement in my everyday life. The church also teaches about the love that Heavenly Father has for us and I have felt that in my life countless times. It is hard to explain the feeling, but it gives me such peace and comfort when I feel it. We are also blessed with having the companionship of the Holy Ghost and I have found that there is no greater feeling than when I have the Spirit with me. It testifies of the truth and always reassures me that the church is true. I am a Mormon because it gives me hope. Through my trials and when I fall short or make a wrong choice I know I can always be forgiven and guided on the right path because of the principles taught within the church. Overall, it just brings me such joy and I know I would not be the person I am today without it. :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving everyone around me. Service is the root of the church and it's what we base a lot of things off of. In our church we are all trying to become like our Savior Jesus Christ and while He was here on the earth He went about serving others and teaching them the gospel. So for me, I always try to be an example to others through my actions and try to be like my Savior more and more everyday. I have recently been called to serve as a missionary for the church and will be dedicating 18 months to go out and preach the gospel and tell them how it makes me happy. The gospel brings so much happiness in my life and I think the way to live my faith is to share it with others.
