Hi I'm Alisha

I'm a Latter Day Saint (aka Mormon)!

About Me

I have a GREAT life. I work with preschoolers everyday, typical and atypical in the classroom. They love to learn. After work I enjoy spending time with my family; playing with my niece and nephew ages 2 and 4. About everyday I get together with friends from my church and enjoy activities like FHE (Family Home Evening), Ultimate Frisbee, Institute class (Education class taught using the scriptures), camping, hiking and anything else outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon or Latter Day Saint because I believe in the teachings of this gospel. I am an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because it holds the fullness of the gospel today. I believe that we all are sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father who created us and a Redeemer, His Son, Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ lived on this earth before He suffered and died for us. I know He was resurrected so that we can live and die and rise again like Him. We must follow His example and strive to become perfect. I love being a member of this church because it helps me become more Christ-like. I believe I can communicate to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ by praying to them. Jesus Christ leads this church on this earth today through a living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. I have loved all the prophets that have served in my day :) We will always have a living prophet on this earth until Jesus Christ comes again. We are blessed to have a living prophet lead us and give us council through revelation from God. We get continual revelation just like the council we have received from the Bible and Book of Mormon. I am a Mormon because I believe these teachings. I know through the Holy Ghost, a member of the Godhead, who testifies of truth that this is the truest church on the earth today! I know it! I love it. There is nothing that makes me more happy and my life more filling. Because of this gospel and Heavenly Fathers plan for us I can be together with my family forever. Even after death we can become reunited if we live a life of righteousness. I am so thankful we have Temples on the earth today to unite families for eternity. This gospel is for everyone and is essential to our life on this earth :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by being a regular person. I go to work, respect my employers, co-workers, live an honest life striving to serve others and join in trying to make my work environment a better place. At home I help my family with chores and daily tasks. I participate in church activities that involve me in the community and serving others. I get to play the piano for my church group and visit other girls who need my help and friendship. Its not difficult to live my faith because it's apart of my life, I don't know any better way to spend my time strengthening relationships with family and friends than to reach out and look after each other.
