Hi I'm Alden

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student trying to figure out what I'm going to do with the rest of my life. I've been studying physics and astronomy, which I love, but as happens to a lot of people, life threw me quite the curve-ball. I'm now studying early childhood education. I want to figure out how to help kids love to learn. I love sports, especially martial arts. I have trained in martial arts for about 9 years, and now I also teach it. I love teaching martial arts because I really feel like it helps people be happier. I feel like reaching out and helping others is the most important thing I can do.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because of the life it helps me live. Some say living all of the rules and things that God has given us is too restricting, but following the high standards God has set helps me so much. It's been anything but restricting. I love the healthy, happy life the teachings of Christ have cultivated in myself and in my family. This isn't just something I think is good though, it's more than that. Reading and praying about the Book of Mormon to find out that it is true is what gave me the desire to live the way I do. God is ready to answer when we ask about things that are important to us.

How I live my faith

For me, the most important parts of living my faith are having a strong, personal relationship with Jesus Christ and lifting up others. On top of trying to make time to participate in service, I sing in a church choir. I feel like this is a great opportunity to help others feel God's love.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Through faith in Jesus Christ, we come to understand that there is more to life than just serving our own interests and desires. Christ showed us an amazing example of being selfless and loving unconditionally. By following Him, we grow in our desire to love our families and do what will make them happy, even if we have to give up some things that we want. The amazing thing is that as we sacrifice for those we love, we grow happier and more able to love. Show more Show less
