Hi I'm Alexandra

I have lived in Maryland and the DC area my entire life. I was raised Jewish and I am now a Mormon.

About Me

I am an accounting clerk at a local insurance company and an aspiring car mechanic. More recently, I have started boxing and game design as things to do in my free time.

Why I am a Mormon

On a rainy day in February, two well dressed missionaries knocked on my door. We talked of God and Jesus, I even explained Judaism to them. Remarkably they listened. There was no judgement from either party but more a sense of humbled hearts and minds. I felt a sense of comfort listening to them. An hour of talking had passed when they gave me the information for the Church and a phone number to call, I ended up calling two hours later. I told myself I wouldn't call them back but I felt more than compelled to let them know I was gong to come to Church that coming Sunday. As I drove to the Church I realized I was in a very good mood, and I am not usually morning person, I was even humming. As Sacrament started I felt a warmth in the room I had never in my life felt before. Everyone in the room, though quiet, it was as if everyone was radiating a genuine glow of warmth and positivity. At the time, I didn't think anything of it, but this experience was a little push by the Lord to be closer to the Church. After about a month, I had learned much about the Church, the Lord and God. I realized hat more than anything I wanted to be truly closer to all three. After talking to the missionaries about it both them and I realized that I was ready and wanting to be baptized. March 20th at 2:30pm I was baptized and brought closer to the Lord. Not only do I believe that it was the most important decision I have ever made but also the best I ever have.

How I live my faith

As an active member of the LDS Church, I have recently been set apart for a calling in my ward. I am a member of the FHE. The FHE stands for Family Home Evening which is a time for people in the ward to get together and do activities together. Recently, we went to a Nationals game. Also, every once or twice a month I volunteer to feed the missionaries.
