Hi I'm Alexa

I grew up in rural Oregon. I am a proud college grad, wife and mom. I love small town life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After seven years, I finally graduated at age 25 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. I am the eldest of five kids - two sisters and two brothers. I married my husband in the Portland, Oregon Temple. We now have a baby girl and I spend my days playing with her and learning how to cook while my husband works and goes to school. In my spare time I love to read, make things I find on Pinterest and improve my digital design skills. I love everything about a small town, especially the fact that plaid shirts are always in style, and hope to always be living in one.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon faith, but I continue to follow the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have my own, personal testimony of the truthfulness of the full gospel of Jesus Christ. Experience after experience has proven to me that I am personally known by my Heavenly Father. In quiet times of thought and wonder, I've found peace, comfort and perspective in the teachings of my Savior. It is through His restored gospel that I find a sense of direction and have found true and lasting joy. I am a Mormon because my faith gives me hope.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in such a way that when people find out I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, they aren't surprised. I want to be an example of the believers and a true disciple of Christ. To me that means serving those around me, family, friends, co-workers, fellow church goers. Most of the time my service is small and simple and seemingly insignificant, but then I remember that by "small and simple things are great things brought to pass."

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes. Mormons are Christians. The actual name of our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, indicates that Christ is at the center of our beliefs. His words are the ones we feast on, his principles, his teachings, his love is our focus and what we try to impliment in our families, our homes, our lives and our communities. Show more Show less
