Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up in Owasso, Oklahoma. I'm a drummer, studying psychology, and loving life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love anything that does something with music; dancing, band, and singing( not so good at that one). I'm on the drumline for a WNBA team. I'm in college and studying psychology. I'm positive and love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to return to live with him someday. I know that His son, Jesus Christ, came to this earth so we could return to our Heavenly Father. Christ really did suffer for our sins and pains, and he rose from the dead so we could live again. I know that Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, he did restore the true church on this earth. I know that he translated the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that it was written for these days. I know that as we read the Book of Mormon that we do become to know Christ and grow closer to him. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet and leads and guides our church today by receiving revelation from God. I know that temples are Heaven on earth. I know that marriage in the temple is for eternity, and not till just death. I know we are all children of God. I am a daughter of a King. I know these things are true.

How I live my faith

Outside of church, I'm on a drumline and performing percussion group of all guys, yes I'm they only girl! It can be challenging at time because I am the only Mormon. I don't do things on Sunday, I don't cuss, I don't watch "R" rated movies, and I don't wear the norm when it comes to clothes. They know I am Mormon and they respect that, yes sometime I do have to remind them that I won't see that movie or "I can't it's Sunday", but when people know your standards and you stick by them and not falter, people respect you and don't pressure you to do something you don't want to do, or if someone does, someone is there to back you up. I have realized that even if people don't know you are Mormon, they see that "glow" that is different in you, and they want it. We all have the light of Christ in us, just in some of us it is hidden, but they recognize it and if they know it or not, their spirit wants it to shine. We are all here to learn and to remember where we came from.
