Hi I'm Alex

I'm the only member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in my family.

About Me

I love the outdoors. I love to camp, hike, cook over an open fire, shoot shotguns, and much more. I recently graduated from the George Washington University in Washington, DC with my Master of Public Administration and now work for a local government in northern Virginia as a budget and management analyst. As such, I also really enjoy political discourse and current events and love to have friendly debates.

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up with no religious background of any sort. My life was fine until I got into college and felt that I had lost my direction and was missing something in my life. A good friend introduced me to the church and after some time, I realized that faith in the Lord Jesus Christ was the missing piece of the puzzle. Because of this Church, my life is focused and I have a great network of member friends to support my direction on life's path.

How I live my faith

I try and be an example to those around me, especially my family and long time friends. Being the only member of my family and converting to this Church after so many years with some of my friends, I feel that is important to let them know as well as others I don't know that my faith does not make me a bad person. By following the Savior's example, participating in Priesthood ordinances, and magnifying my callings, I show all those around me that I love the Lord Jesus Christ.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

The Church does not endorse political parties or candidates for political office. However, when necessary, the Church reserves the right to take a stand on moral issues within our society such as with same-sex marriage. Many of the Church's views on these kinds of social issues can easily be found on its website. Show more Show less
