Hi I'm Alyssa

I'm a student, a singer, and a sister. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying English and Literature. I love to read and write and hope to become a teacher. I also love music and theatre. Performing gives me great joy, and I see it as a way to bring light and happiness to others. I am part of a wonderful family; my parents and three sisters are my favorite people on earth! I love people and the beauty of human connection. I value close relationships with family and friends and believe that we are here to help each other progress through love and service.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me the gospel when I was young, and I felt in my heart that it was true. As I kept the Lord's commandments, my faith was strengthened until I knew that everything I had been taught was true. I know God loves us. I know Jesus Christ is our Savior. He suffered for our sins and also for every moment of pain and sorrow we experience. Whenever I make mistakes, I know the Savior understands. He is patient with me and turns my weaknesses into strengths. He has done this in my life and in the life of my family. I know families can be together forever and can experience a fulness of joy after this life. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know this is the way to eternal life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying and studying the scriptures daily. I love to share the spiritual truths I learn with others. I also try to show my love for the Lord by serving His children. I want everyone to experience the joy that comes from knowing that God is our Father in Heaven and that Jesus Christ is our Savior.
