Hi I'm Alex

I'm a husband and a father of three. I am a salesman for Pepsi. I am the founder of a non-profit Dads Against Porn. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, a father of three adorable kids, a full-time salesman for PepsiCo and the founder of a non-profit organization: Dad's Against Porn, which is focused on helping parents better-equip their children against the dangers of pornography. Family is 'numero uno' for me. I love to exercise. I love to learn knew things. I am striving to bind myself to the gospel of Jesus Christ more and more each day. Even striving to live the gospel, I fall short at times. It is through the loving mercy of my Savior Jesus Christ that I am able to get back on track on a daily basis.

Why I am a Mormon

Oh my goodness where do I begin? Let's just say my life would be a very sad one indeed if I didn't have my membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I can't imagine a world without my Savior. I can't imagine a world without the Book of Mormon or without modern-day revelation from God to living prophets and apostles. For these reasons I am a mormon. Definitely not a perfect mormon, but a mormon indeed.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I teach a small class of 4-5 year olds about the gospel and about Jesus Christ. We sing songs, do activities, we color and most importantly we eat snacks. In addition, once a month I and my "home-teaching companion" who, like me, is an adult male member of our location congregation, make regular house visits to several families in the congregation who are sick or otherwise afflicted in some way. We visit with them to ensure all of their spiritual and temporal needs are met. Typically this involves us sharing and discussing gospel messages from the Apostles of the church with the family. It may involve us discussing with the head of the family how his or her local church leader (the bishop) can support the family with any temporal needs, such as organizing meals to be sent to the home on a regular basis or using church member donations to help pay for necessary living expenses (which could be paid back or paid forward at a later time). Teaching my class of toddlers each Sunday and visiting families each month who may need spiritual or temporal assistance are several ways that currently live my faith. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the gospel.
