Hi I'm Alex Osmond

I'm a web designer/developer, musician and a proud dad! I love my family and Savior Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am madly in love with my best friend, sweetheart and wife Jessie. My family is EVERYTHING to me! They are the reason I wake up every day to do the things that I do. I love them and am so grateful for everything I receive from my loving Heavenly Father in heaven. I give thanks daily to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who made it possible for us to return home and to be sealed as an eternal family not just in this life, but the life to come. Apart from being a web designer, I enjoy all of my time with my family at home or camping. I love electric and acoustic guitar, golf, flying r/c airplanes, music, guitar, programming, golf, and many other hobbies. My favorite quote is from Aristotle and I try to pattern my life after it: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Although I won't achieve perfection in this life, I eventually can because of Jesus Christ. I can become perfected as I pattern my life through the way He lived His life. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelor's degree in Digital Media (Internet Technologies Track). I absolutely love it and currently work as a UX Designer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because Jesus Christ is the one who leads the church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has once again been restored to the earth with a living prophet. I know this to be true from sincere scripture study, praying to Heavenly Father for guidance and to know if what I've learned and studied is true. Listening to the promptings of the Holy Ghost have testified to me that this is the true and living church. I can always find peace and guidance in knowing that I am being lead by Christ. All of the precious truths and authority from Christ that were once lost have been restored. I have come to know that this is true from reading and praying about the Bible and The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. That same authority that was once on the earth in Christ's mortal ministry is again leading us today in these "last days". I'm a Mormon because I love Christ and want to follow Him through His living prophets and apostles.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I live my life… one day at a time. I try to pattern everything I do after Jesus Christ. Although I continue to fall short and make mistakes, as long as I do my best… Christ will take care of the rest! I love knowing that each day is a new fresh start of fulfilling my purpose in this life and making a difference in this dysfunctional world. The secret to happiness in this life can always be found in the scriptures, following the teachings of Christ given through his living prophets and apostles, listening to the promptings of the Holy Ghost, and praying to a loving Heavenly Father. Sunday is the best day of the week. It is when we can take a time out from this crazy world and focus on perfecting our lives and patterning them after the Savior. Church is a spiritual hospital. We all need weekly and daily treatment! The biggest highlight of the week is partaking of the Sacrament in church. I can renew my promise to God and Christ that I will always remember Him and live my life like His. The Sacrament also focuses on His Atonement, not only overcoming physical death, but spiritual death as well (our sins).
