Hi I'm Alex

I love traveling, a good book, my family, graphic design and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm serving a mission in Chiclayo Peru.

About Me

I would say that I live a very happy life. Not that there hasn't been really hard times, and difficulties to get through and lots of ups and downs, but through all of that there has been one thing that keep me truly happy: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The gospel that this church teaches has allowed me to know my own self worth and the reason why I am here. I love love love it with all my heart. I have an amazing family, and wonderful friends. I love traveling, reading, being a student, and eating good food. Currently I am serving a mission for this Church in Chiclayo Peru.

Why I am a Mormon

I know its true. I know that this church is true with ALL my heart. Without this Church, there would be so much missing in my life. Even though living the standards and commandments can be hard when the world mocks what you believe in, there is nothing that makes me happier. Nothing compares to the joy and satisfaction that comes from living the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

As a student at BYU, I have a lot of people with my same beliefs all around me. But that doesn't make living my faith any easier by any means. Living the gospel of Jesus Christ can be difficult at times, because the world doesn't agree with some of it, but it is also the most rewarding thing. As I prepare to leave for Peru to serve a mission, my faith is always on my mind. I will be able to live my faith even more fully as I am on a mission and I am so excited for that.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Coming to know our Heavenly Father is a process that you have to put effort into. He wants you to know him and become close with him, but that can only happen if you have the desire and act on it. As I have gained my own testimony of my Heavenly Father and his knowledge and love for me personally, the most important thing I have done to gain that testimony is pray. Pray to him, he wants to talk to you. He wants you to pour out your heart to him. And he will give you answers to your prayers. We are promised that in the scriptures. Show more Show less
