Hi I'm Alex

I'm a missionary, a Red Wings fan, a Michigander, and a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in the State of Michigan, USA. My parents are awesome and I love them so much. Our family has 3 boys, and I am the middle. My older brother and his wife just had a baby girl in March. My younger brother is just about to graduate from High School. My family loves sports, mostly hockey, some of the best memories I have are hanging out and watching playoff games. I would like to play hockey for a college team when I get home. Right now I am serving a mission for The Church in British Columbia, Canada. I am loving each day that I have here and all the opportunities that a mission brings. I love serving the Lord and I am grateful for the knowledge that I have.

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up as a member of the church, but I didn't always know that it was true. I knew it was something good, but I never really had it confirmed to me. When it was about time to serve a mission I didn't think that I would go, then I was given a challenge. My Uncle told me that he wanted me to put my papers in. I don't really know what happened after that, something clicked in my head that I needed to know what to do. I started to read the Book of Mormon for the first time. It was interesting and the stories were familiar because of primary. I couldn't put it down and I was determined to have it read before I left on a mission. One day I was reading from the book of Alma, the most peaceful and amazing feeling came over me. I knew that it was Heavenly Father telling me that it was true and that I needed to share that knowledge. Since then my testimony has grown so much. I still have many struggles and faults, but I know my Savior is there. I know that I can be spiritually healed by living the True Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know this church is true and that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith through my service as a missionary. I love sharing the Gospel with others and helping people where ever I go.
