Hi I'm Alexis

I'm a student. I'm a dreamer. I love life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old, currently attending college and am graduating this year with my Bachelor's in History. Some of my hobbies include ice skating, biking, hiking, cross-stitching, and reading. I love the church and the gospel and love to speak about it with anyone I meet.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church and that the Book of Mormon is an inspired book. I started attending church when I was dating a Mormon boy in high school. As I attended church meetings, studied the scriptures and even went to girls camp, I felt frustrated as everyone talked about this "spirit" that I could not seem to feel. However, I stayed diligent, learning all I could and I did. I could feel it and it was wonderful. I can feel it now as I write this. I know that the Savoir lives, that we have prophets on the Earth today and that Heavenly Father loves all of us so much more than we can imagine. I love the gospel and the church and will always be a faithful member.

How I live my faith

In all of my actions, I try to think of what Christ would have done in my position. I read my scriptures daily and learn how to act from them as well. I am at the head of a group of women in my ward and I love it. I help organize events, lead the meetings, and strengthen the sisters. I do everything I can to make them feel like they are loved. I also am involved in a visiting teaching group. In this, the women go out and teach the other women lessons, have discussions and make sure they are doing well, all in the comfort of their homes. I love visiting teaching because it gives you someone to always talk to and it is what Christ did in his ministry.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

The tithing that Mormons pay goes into everything that we provide. It builds church buildings and temples. It prints materials and scriptures. It funds missionary programs as well as aid that we provide to all who stand in need when disasters strike all around the world. Without tithing, our church would not be able to function, just as it would not be able to without faithful members who give that ten percent so generously. Show more Show less
