Hi I'm Alex

I'm a Kansas girl, I'm a musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of five kids, a former DJ, musician, and currently a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this is the only true church on the Earth today. It is the same church that Christ set up when He came. This church has been restored to the Earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove, and restored Christ's church to its fullest. I know for a fact that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon; he did not write it. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is the most correct book on Earth. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane by bleeding out of every pore. He died on the cross for us, so we can resurrect just as he did. I know that Heavenly Father loves each of us so much that he gave his oldest son for us, so we can return to live with Him again. I know that through Christ's atonement, I can be with my Heavenly Father again. I know that families are forever, and that sacred ordinances happen in the temple. I know that this church is directed by a prophet of God. Most of all, I know that this is the church that has the fullness of Christ's gospel. I love this gospel with all my heart, and it really is the key to being happy. I'm a Mormon because this gospel brings happiness.

How I live my faith

Living my faith consumes a lot of time. I am currently preparing to serve a full-time mission for 18 months, I currently have three callings in my ward, and try to spend as much time as I can studying the scriptures. I am our the ward chorister, I teach 3-4 year old Sunday School, and I am a ward missionary. All these callings include service for others, and serving my Heavenly Father. Serving and loving others is how I try to live my faith. As I show others how much their Heavenly Father loves them, I feel the love He has for me as well.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Alex
We care for far more people than just Mormons, we believe that we all are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, and that we should love and serve one another. One of our main focuses in our church is to serve as Christ served others. Show more Show less
