Hi I'm Alex

I live in Hawaii. I love the beach and all water activities. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University Hawaii. I like talking to people. I am a musician and love to play musical instruments. I love being in the water, whether it's a water sport or just plain swimming. I like playing games and being on a team. I read books for fun if they're interesting. I enjoy life.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been members of the church for generations. So I grew up going to church regularly and learning the doctrines from a young age. It has helped me a lot being growing up in making good choices that place me on the path to a successful future. I am thankful that the gospel of Jesus Christ provides a solid foundation of peace and direction that helps me through many things; bigger struggles such as the death of my younger brother or smaller things such as which friends to hang out with. I've found that as I do my best to follow Jesus Christ, I'm generally a happier person. Struggles come but they are easier to overcome because of the guidance I find in the gospel.

How I live my faith

I regularly volunteer myself to provide music for our church congregation by playing either the piano or the organ. I also have served a mission in the Nevada Las Vegas mission, giving up two years of my life to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the people of Las Vegas. Because of the happiness I've received from the gospel, it makes me even happier to share it with others and see it help them. Aside from church assignments, I try to be a good person in general. I help my neighbors and everyone around me with small acts of service and kindness, as Jesus Christ would if he were living on the earth.
