Hi I'm Alysha

I am a wife, and a mommy to two sweet children. I am also a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I have been married for 7 years to my best friend. He is an amazing man and I love him more each day! We have two children who love to go on adventures. I love to clean when I'm stressed, and craft when I can. I like to cook new meals and laugh if we dont like it at all and am relieved when I find something my kids will eat. I love music especially music I can dance/ sing to. I could sing all day (and sometimes I do). I love to watch my children as they play together or want me to play with them. They have taught me more about the gospel than I expected. They forgive so easily and are so friendly and loving to others. I love mountains and the beauty they remind me of each time I see them! I love the outdoors and the smell after it rains. I am so blessed!

Why I am a Mormon

My senior year in high school, a girl that I knew found me in a quiet hallway crying. I was going through a rough time at home and really needed someone. But I felt alone and afraid. She began to talk to me and cheer me up. Shortly after another friend found me sitting at a table and brought out a large book. He read a scripture to me and then talked to me about the trials I was facing in my life. A few weeks later, I was invited to spend the night at my friends house and she told me that I would have to go to church with them if I stayed on a Saturday night. I agreed. People at church were so kind and loving. I felt comfortable and safe. Shortly after, I started to meet with the missionaries. My life changed from that point on. Everything seemed to turn out right, kind of like the sun coming out after a storm. My life, although not always sunshiny and perfect, is wonderful! I have everything I need and love! I love my family SO much! I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father loves us and sent His Son to die for us. I know that we have prophets to guide us along our way. I know that prayers are answered, even if it is not in our time, it will be in His time. I also know that families can be together forever!

How I live my faith

I am a mommy and by being so, I teach my children gospel principles so they might grow to know and love the gospel. I talk to my friends about the gospel and share uplifting messages and videos on facebook. I visit friends each month to check on them and see how they are doing and also share a gospel message with them.
