Hi I'm Alyssa

I'm a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a missionary serving in the Texas Houston Mission.

About Me

I was studying elementary education at Brigham Young University, but am taking the time to serve a mission in Texas. I love learning and I am so excited to go and have this new experience and learn so many new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and as such I often feel that I've been a Mormon my whole life. I continue to practice in the Mormon faith because I have seen the blessings that come into my life when I follow the counsel of the church and the Lord. I have also seen that having the Gospel in my life provides me with a sense of security and direction that is hard to find outside of the Gospel. I love knowing that a loving Heavenly Father knows who I am and cares about me. It is also comforting to know that He is listening to and answering my prayers.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures regularly, praying often, and attending church meetings. I do my best to follow the teachings of Christ throughout the week by making good choices and serving those around me. And now I have the opportunity to share my faith with others- which is another way for me to live my faith.
