Hi I'm Alyssa

I'm a writer, swimmer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Alyssa. I'm studying psychology as of right now to become a killer whale trainer at SeaWorld of San Antonio after I graduate. I'm a brilliant writer. I write stories, mostly about teenage girls going through rough times, because I have been through a lot, but still was able to achieve the impossible. Or, my stories will include fantasy sometime later. I am also a really good swimmer. I mostly swim breaststroke when I can. You cannot keep me from the water because I love it too much. And, best of all, I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church. I do not only go because my parents went and took me, but I loved the feeling of being accepted by everyone and knowing the fact that God does exist and cares for me was the greatest. I had rough times in my life where people in the Church helped me feel welcomed, and even God has and always will accept me, no matter what.

How I live my faith

I just love to serve in the church. I like being able to go to the temple and just being with people of my ward and church. It is so amazing. I love going to church, spending time with my church friends, reading the scriptures and praying. :)

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

The Church does not push away anyone who is a homosexual. It would be against what we teach as accepting others and not judging people. We accept homosexuals as they are, we are just against same-sex marriage, because it violates God's sacred moral law of marriage which is between a man and a woman. Show more Show less

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes, Mormons do believe the Bible to be Holy Scripture and the word of God. But, we also accept the Book of Mormon to be the word of God too. Both books work hand in hand as the word of God. The Bible is the record of God's children in the eastern side of the world, and the Book of Mormon is the record of God's children in the western side of the world. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons DEFINITELY are Christians. The term 'Christian' means 'follower of Christ'. The real name of our church is called "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" so yes, we are Christians. We believe and follow Jesus Christ. He is the foundation of our church.  Show more Show less
