Hi I'm Alex

I'm a father of two, a sports fan, I work in commercial insurance and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing and watching sports, cooking with my wife and playing with our two children.

Why I am a Mormon

The teachings and words of Jesus Christ help everyone to become the best version of themselves and I am no exception. While not perfect, I try to continually progress spiritually and mentally and help those around me to the extent that I can. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints combines the gospel of Jesus Christ through ancient scripture, modern day prophecy and personal spiritual revelation, to enable my learning and progression as well as teaching family values that are needed so much in today's world. I have strong faith and confirmation that Christ directs this church through the power of the Holy Spirit and a Modern-day prophet, and that serving in the church has brought me more happiness and fulfillment in life than would be possible by any other walk of life.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by being a quiet example of the principles that I stand for. In our local Church unit, I help the local leadership by assisting to coordinate and plan meetings, namely the program for Sunday services, and also work on planning activities that will best meet the needs of church members in our area.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Alex
The Lord's Law of Health, frequently referred to as 'The Word of Wisdom' by members of the LDS faith isn't so much about list of things we can't do as it is guidance for how to best take care of our bodies, which we believe to be sacred. Just as it wouldn't be healthy to eat only an apple every meal for your entire life, there are substances that can harm your body, impair judgement, or even create addiction. These types of substances should be avoided, but we should also maintain a healthy balance in diet, and avoid over or under eating. Caring for our body properly will allow us to live life to the fullest extent! Show more Show less
