Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up all over. I'm a wife, mother, teacher and wanna-be Latina and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to collect quotes and enjoy spending time with my family, I am a wife to a 100% Mexican and we have a beautiful daughter who brings us so much joy! I have a love for the Spanish language and all the different cultures that are associated with speaking Spanish. I am a college graduate and now teach English and Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I would not be who I am today if it weren't for the MANY faith promoting experiences I have been blessed to have in my life. Through prayer, scripture study, and actively participating in Church meetings and activities I have gained a knowledge that affects what I do on a daily basis. I know that the gospel has been restored and is meant to bring us TRUE happiness and peace in this life and teach us how to return to our Father in Heaven. The gospel of Jesus Christ means that there is hope for me and those I love and those I don't even know.

How I live my faith

I actively participate in Church weekly and love the different responsibilities I've been given. One of the most memorable and fulfilling experiences I have participated in as a way to live my faith was by serving a mission. I learned Spanish and got to live among people from all over the world.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes! My father passed away from cancer and after that happened, I experienced grief like anybody would, but at the same time, there was always peace and hope because I knew I would see him again one day and be with him after this life. As long as I keep the covenants (promises) I've made to Heavenly Father, He will keep His and one of those is that families can be together forever because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the sealing power we have been given (Matthew 16:19) Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

After a struggle with cancer, my father passed away. Because of what we learn in the Book of Mormon, we know that after someone dies they go home to that God that gave them life and stay in a state of peace and rest until they are resurrected, if we follow what the Lord has told us to do.
