Hi I'm Mallory

I grew up in Utah, and I'm half Puerto Rican. I love theatre and performing arts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Spanish education major at Weber State University. I love to learn. I considered a bachelor's of integrated arts because learning is fun for me. I love theatre arts. I love to sing and perform in musical theatre. I played soccer all growing up and that's a blast for me. I adore my family. My parents are my best friends in the whole world and I look up to them immensely.

Why I am a Mormon

It's commonly believed that being born into this gospel makes living it easy. But, that's not always true. Although I am so grateful I was raised in the church, it doesn't mean I don't face challenges of faith. I have friends and family members who have chosen to not be Mormon for a variety of reasons, but I choose to stay. I choose to stay because this gospel is true, and I love my Savior so much. Jesus Christ died for me and paid the debt for my sins, and I am eternally grateful for that. It doesn't make living this gospel easy, but it makes it worth it. Every trial is so worth it because of the growth I feel and the closeness I feel to my savior. Being a Mormon makes my life worth living, and not only that but I actually understand the purpose of this life and where I'm going. I feel like a very un-lost 18 year old girl when it comes to living life because I have the guidance of my Heavenly Father. It's an age where a lot feel confused and lonely and hurt, and although I still feel that at times, when I turn to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, I have direction and purpose!!! I am SO proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I teach the women of our church once a month in my Young Single Adult ward. It's so fun! I love to prepare lessons so that we can work on becoming better people together. I teach, but I learn a lot more from the sisters in my ward. They are so faithful and such incredible people and it's an honor to serve with them. I also help my sister to direct shows at the junior high and the high school level. It's an honor to serve in my community and help kids grow to love themselves through doing theatre. I choose faith everyday! It's easy to be dissuaded from the gospel by the temptations all around me, but I wake up everyday and choose to believe and I choose to love God.
