Hi I'm Alexa
I love to read, cook, travel, visit museums, and spend time with my husband and family. My dream is to move to my husband's home country in Europe, raise a family, and work in a museum.
Why I am a Mormon
"Men are that they might have joy" (2 Nephi 2:25) I am happiest when I live gospel principles and follow the commandments of God. I am a Mormon because serving Jesus Christ and following his teachings has brought me more happiness than any other thing or person on the Earth.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
When I was twelve years old I wanted to read the Book of Mormon for the first time all the way through by myself before my thirteenth birthday. For the first few months I did a great job getting through it but I soon forgot about my goal and stopped reading. However, 3 days before my 13th birthday I remembered my goal and began reading the Book of Mormon again. I was determined to finish it in time! Over the next three days I read the Book of Mormon from front cover to back cover. It was a difficult undertaking especially for someone who had never read that much before. But every moment I spent reading the Book of Mormon was worth it. On my 13th birthday I finished the Book of Mormon for the first time and decided to follow the promise in the last chapter of the Book of Moroni verses 4-5 to pray to God and ask if the Book of Mormon was true. I received an answer that day and I knew that the Book of Mormon and all of its teachings were true! Since my 13th birthday I have read the Book of Mormon many times and each time I am reminded of its truthfulness and the love that God has for me and each of His children.
How I live my faith
I live my faith each day by sharing it with others through word and deed. A simple smile, a note, a word of encouragement or anything that would lift someone else are examples of how I live my faith.
