Hi I'm A'Lissa

I'm an optimist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother, a wife, a daughter. I'm a flight attendant, a vegetarian and a marathon runner. And I'm incredibly blessed. I love my life. My children bring me joy and my husband loves me. We are a close-knit family who enjoy running, traveling, music, photography and serving others. I consciously try to make the world a better place.

Why I am a Mormon

I started attending the LDS Church when I was a teenager and we drove past the chapel every day. I made a conscious decision to choose to be a Mormon. It just felt right. Everything I heard made sense. I'm a very logical person and the more I've learned through the years, the stronger my faith has become. All of the pieces just fit together. The gospel of Christ brings us joy and allows us to return to our Heavenly Father. Nothing could be more important than that.

How I live my faith

I try to follow Christ's teachings and remember Him at all times. I serve my family, my Church, my community and the world. I work at the Temple one day a week and it has been an incredible experience. The love that permeates that building is tangible and the Holy Ghost testifies to me each week that I am in the House of the Lord and we are doing His work. Feeling the Spirit makes me want to be a better person, to be more like my Savior. The gospel teaches me how.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

The Temple is a holy sanctuary where we make covenants with God and learn of His Plan. Ordinances are performed for both the living and for those who died without the opportunity to receive them. One of these special ordinances is the sealing of a family for all eternity. The husband and wife, and children (if they have any) kneel at an altar and receive the promise of a family that will be together forever. God loves us and wants to bless us. His love for us is nowhere more apparent than in the Temple. Show more Show less
