Hi I'm Alyssa Marie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old and I am the youngest of seven children. Ever since I was nine years old my life has revolved around two things: gymnastics and school. I did competitive gymnastics for a number of years and now, even when I'm in college, I coach gymnastics. I am studying Audiology and I want to work with deaf children and help them with the different struggles that they can be confronted with. I have an obsession with quotes and organizing. I don't look like my family, but I act just like them. I love my family more than anything and I hope that I will be exactly like my mother when I grow up.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; however, I did not realize that this was the one true church on this earth until I was 20 years. It took me that long to realize that I had the best thing this world could offer. I love the joy that His gospel offers. Jesus Christ puts us on this earth to experience joy; not just happiness, but actual joy. We fall and we lose our way, but there is mercy in God's plan. When we realize how merciful God is, there is no denying His love. My God and Jesus Christ, my savior love me. This life is hard, but we can be redeemed in all that we do. I love this church and I know that Jesus Christ is my Redeemer. He knows my name and my heart better than I do myself. I can be saved if I continue to live as I was commanded by Him. Being a Mormon has given me joy and hope. Being a Mormon has let me love more people every day. Being a Mormon is something I am not perfect at, but I have hope and I experience joy.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the example of Savior, Jesus Christ. He lived a life of endless service, love and humility. Life can be made easier when we forget ourselves and always remember our fellowmen. Love Everyone and Serve Always.
