Hi I'm Alex

I'm a Mormon. I'm currently studying physical therapy.

About Me

I'm married and have two boys, a 3 year old and 9 month old. I am studying physical therapy currently because I enjoy learning how the body works and functions. I have strong interests in martial arts. I have enjoyed taekwondo since high school and then anything else I can expose myself too. I also enjoy watching lots of movies when I get the chance. I still try to read science fiction and fantasy since I was very avid reader growing up.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church and have been strongly exposed to its teachings. I have spent a good time studying other religions' histories and practices, but rationally they did not make complete sense to me. Lots of good sense, just not complete sense. The biggest reason why I am a Mormon, though, is because of the feelings and inspirations I get from the Book of Mormon. It is the keystone to the Mormon faith and a keystone to my faith and understanding. After that everything else falls into place and bridges out to any aspect of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I spent quite a bit of time working with the youth, teaching them and going on activities with them. I was also asked to be in charge of the men's group, and I helped teach lessons on Sundays, visited new families moving into town, and organized activities for the members in the area. Currently I visit some select families once a month to see how they are doing and share a Gospel message, and see if there is anything with which I can help them.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Alex
Your thoughts on God basically. They will introduce the Book of Mormon to you, give you a copy, and want to come back to talk to you about what you read. They will also want to teach you more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Be up front and honest with them. They are trying to be representatives of Jesus Christ and will want to help you with any questions of religion you have. Show more Show less
