Hi I'm Alex

I love to play soccer, I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in a small town in Utah. I have an amazing family that I wouldn't trade for anything! I was involved with Student Government all through Jr. High and High School and really enjoyed being able to do that. I love playing sports. Soccer is my favorite one and the one I played when I was in High School. Friends are really important to me and I have some of the greatest ones anyone could ask for.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and rasied in the church. I always grew up attending church with my family just going because that's what my parents wanted me and my siblings to do. I came to the point where I had to decide if this is really something that was important to me. I couldn't hang on to my parents testimony anymore just going along for the ride I guess you could say. I had to gain a testimony of my own so that I could embrace this faith. I had alot of questions about life and really my purpose here and what I wanted to accomplish. Through reading The Book of Mormon, learning and understanding principles of this gospel, and praying sincerely to know for myself I was able to recieve answers to those questions for me. It's helped to give me direction and purpose in my life. If I wasn't a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I don't know where I'd be in life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith very intensly and passionatly now as I am serving as a full-time missionary in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission. I love being a missionary! I get to go out each day focusing on and studying the gospel. It strengthens my own testimony and faith so much. As a mssionary I get to talk to people that are willing to listen about this amazing truth that we have! The best joy and satisfaction that I get comes when I get to help other people feel the spirit and love that our Heavenly Father has for each and everyone of us. When the people we talk to as missionaries are able to feel that spirit and know the truth of what we are teaching for themselves they then can realize the blessings and joy they can have in their own lives, and there's nothing better than being able to live my faith and helping to spread it to others at the same time.
