Hi I'm Alex

Hi, I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Las Vegas.

About Me

I grew up in Las Vegas and am the son of a convert to the church. My mother grew up in the Catholic faith and was baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when she was 14. I currently live with my wife and daughter in California while I finish up my residency at the local hospital. I love photography, playing the guitar and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the values we learn from the Prophets, the ordinances and truths can only be found in this living church. I know that we have a Savior and his love is shown to us by giving us guidance in these latter-days through his servants the prophets. I love the knowledge and peace that the restored gospel brings to me. I am grateful to have the priesthood and use its power to bless my family. I am grateful for the comfort the gift of the Holy Ghost, that it brings to me.

How I live my faith

One day at a time. I attend the temple as often as possible. I attend my church meetings every week. We pray together as a family daily and nightly. I seek to repent from my sins and make retribution to those I have wronged. I try to live my life and think the way the Savior would have lived his life. I read the scriptures and the church magazine as often as possible. I never stop trying to improve the talents that the Lord has blessed me with. I stay away from coffee, tea and alcohol even when it's a popular thing to do these days.
