Hi I'm Alejandra Marshall

I am proud to be a Mormon. I grew up in California. But now live in Beautiful Utah.

About Me

I am married to wonderful man. I love this state I live in. I love to see mother nature change with the seasons. I enjoy and get great pleasure in doing service to my fellow neighbors/friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know this is the true Church of Jesus Christ. I came to a point in my life were I needed a change, I needed to find myself. I moved to Utah from California to help my cousin with her family. I basically became the live in sitter for my cousin's 4 kids (2 teens, 1-7 year old, and a 3 month old). My cousin was suffering from post pardon depression. I tended the kids for about a year. Through out that year I had no idea what a Mormon was or what LDS stood for. I would ask my cousin and the kids if they knew and they would say is "it's a weird religion". My cousin told me that they have missionaries and that she had sister missionaries that would come over to the house. One day after work I asked my cousin if she would have the sisters come when I was home and she did. As I took the lessons with the sisters I learned more knowledge of what a Mormon was and what LDS stood for. I coming from a Catholic Hispanic background did't have much knowledge of church itself. I had felt this warmth and sincere honesty from the sisters. As I learned more and more about the church and attended the church meetings I felt more complete, satisfied with life. I knew that their was a Jesus, but i didn't know what it meant to have him in my life. I had lost my mother 6 years before I joined the church. Those 6 years were the hardest for me. But now knowing that my Savior is their for me to help carry my burdens the following years have been a breeze. Yes her would have been birthdays come and go and her death anniversary does too. But my heart no longer feels heavy . I no longer question the why's. I now know she is waiting and that i will one day see her again. I decided to join this church because it's true. I have no doubt in my mind that I am where I am now because of the choice's I have made and the many blessings I have received. I have met my Eternal Partner, I have been Blessed into a Wonderful Family. My life is healthier my heart is happier.

How I live my faith

I strive day by day to live the gospel way. Of course there are days we all struggle in some way. But i know i have my rock my husband for guidance as well as my scriptures to help. I really enjoyed my previous calling in the church which was Primary Teacher. Somethings that come out of those kids mouth can just be the highlight of your day.
