Hi I'm Alexis

I'm a stay-at-home mom to five spunky kids. I'm a Jane Austen fan, a Romanian-speaker, and can cook a mean lasagna. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happily-married, crazy-busy, stay-at-home-mom to five rowdy kids. I spend most of each day checking homework, sorting laundry, cleaning bathrooms and supervising playdates. My house is rarely clean, but my kids are mostly happy! My favorite part of any day is snuggling up to read a favorite book with one of my kids. I love literature, art history and cooking. I studied political science in college. Years ago, I served a Mormon mission in Romania and still miss that beautiful land and the many friends I made there.

Why I am a Mormon

My Mormon faith defines who I am. I see myself as a daughter of a loving God, who knows me. God loves me so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to save me from death and sin. My Mormon faith answers life's most important questions for me. It teaches me where I came from, why I am here and where I am going after this life. My Mormon faith centers me on what is most important to me: my family. I value my relationships with my husband, children, parents and siblings above all else and I gain perspective and skills in keeping these relationships healthy and happy as I attend Church and study scripture. I am a Mormon because I have prayed to know and felt in my heart that the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are true and good and will bring me closer to my Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, than anything else I could know or read or do.

How I live my faith

I feel that the most important way I live my faith is by sharing my beliefs with my kids through my words and actions each day and by helping them to discover for themselves what they believe. I believe helping my kids to reach their fullest potential in this life is the most important way that I can show God my gratitude for the great gift He gave me in trusting me with the care of these great souls. I study the Bible and Book of Mormon each day, pray each morning and night, attend Church services each week and try to live the Christian principles I am taught there. I also look for chances to serve in whatever way I can at my kids' school, in our community and in our Mormon congregation. I try my best to give of my time, share my talents and donate financially to charitable causes. My Heavenly Father has given me so much, I try to repay Him by serving His children that are within my influence.
