Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, I build airplanes for Boeing. I'm an avid backpacker and outdoorsman and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for almost 2 years and my wife is expecting our first child. I love living in the Pacific Northwest which provides me with ample opportunity to explore the outdoors and witness God's wonderful creations. I am an avid hiker, camper and all-around adventurer. I am a big sports fan; I enjoy mostly all sports (sorry soccer isn't my thing) but basketball is my favorite.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a logical thinker. I like to analyze things. I like to figure out why things are the way they are, and how they work. When it comes to the gospel I can explain the logic as to why God would restore His gospel to the Earth today. I could explain how an uneducated farm boy in the early 19th century could not write such a book as the Book of Mormon, but rather he would need divine guidance to produce such a book. I could provide physical evidence for proof of the Book of Mormon. But this is not why I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a testimony because the Holy Ghost has testified to me of its truthfulness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving with the youth. I help organize events, lessons, and other enjoyable experiences for the boys in our church ages 12-18. I often attend these young men on camping trips and hikes. I help these young men achieve their goals of Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America. I try to teach them the importance of honesty, integrity, service, faith, and to have fun!

Are Mormons Christians?

Absolutely we are Christians. Everything we do in our church reflects Christ as our Savior, the Son of God, and Messiah. We try to follow all of Christ's words, teachings, and his example. All things are possible because of Him. Show more Show less
