Hi I'm Alex

I love the little things in life. I am an avid laugher. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a born and raised Texan. I am the youngest of five kids in the most amazing family that there is on this Earth. I love to play any kind of sport. Soccer is and has been my favorite sport through out all of my life so far. I love to play or do anything with music. I sing and I play the piano. I love to get to know people and I absolutely love to make friends. I am going to school now with the goal to become an eye doctor. I recently served a mission for two years in Ogden Utah and it was the best two years of my life. I am now looking forward with great excitement towards the opportunities that are ahead in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church my whole life. I have never really had an ah hah! moment but as I grew up and in high school my trials are what brought me close to God. As my trials brought me lower than anything in the world could I had no one else to turn to but to my Father in Heaven. Those trials are what has solidified my testimony in this amazing gospel. I love this gospel and know that it is true with all of my heart. I don't think there are words that can express that well enough. This gospel is my life.

How I live my faith

The power of an example is very big to me. Living what you believe is important. The goal of becoming like my Savior Jesus Christ and living like Him is what drives me. I love being able to help people find peace and comfort from their Savior. That can start as simply as being an example of Him.

Are Mormons Christians?

Alex
I have been asked this question more than any other question throughout my life. I think because most non-members of this church believe that our church is called The Mormon Church they don't think we believe in Christ or that we believe in a different Christ. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as it is fully called, is completely founded on our knowledge of Jesus Christ being the Son of God and the Savior of the world. We believe that Jesus Christ was born on this earth and that He established His church. We believe that He performed miracles, taught those around Him, lead a perfect life, understood His Father's will, and many other things. We believe that He atoned for our sins, He was crucified and was resurrected. We believe that He lives and that He guides this church through a called prophet, just as in the days of old. We believe that He loves each of us perfectly and wants to help us and bring us back into His presence and the presence of our Father in Heaven. I know Christ lives and that He loves me. Jesus Christ is the center of my life and I love Him. Show more Show less
