Hi, my name is Ally. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression while serving a mission in McAllen, Texas. I came home after 11 months of service because I knew I wasn’t going to get better in the field. I have been home for 4 years now and I have come to find beauty and blessings through my suffering, that I wouldn’t have otherwise. My goal is to share with you stories of those who have had similar experiences as well as my own insights. I know from experience that sharing with others what you have gone through can help them in ways you never thought possible! We are here on this earth “to mourn with those that mourn and comfort those that stand in need of comfort” (Mosiah 18:9). Heavenly Father loves each of us and I know He uses others to let us know we can do hard things.

Every Friday I will be featuring a different person’s story. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in sharing an experience please comment and let me know. I want people to know they are not alone and there is hope! Also, please feel free to share this with those who are silently going through hard things. Thank you!

XOXO, Ally
