Hi I'm Alisa

I'm a step-mother, a wife and a daughter. I plan on being a choir teacher. I love the Rocky Mountains. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. Ever since I was a little kid I have loved music. For a really long time I thought I was going to preform on Broadway. However, I had a teacher that influenced me greatly. He taught me that music was not just technique. He taught us that music came from emotion. Teaching me this showed me that music can be used for so many good things. Through him I have learned that I want to teach people this love that I feel for music. I am married to the love of my life. He has a beautiful little girl who we both love very much. We are now living in Missouri. He is in the Air Force. I am the eldest in my family. I have 5 siblings and I LOVE IT! I love family and I love spending time with them. I love to hike, crochet, read, write and play music, and watch movies with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger I was slightly rebellious. I did not believe that the church was true. I didn't believe it at all. However, one day my Sunday school teacher challenged me personally to read the Book of Mormon. I am a little competitive so I decided that I was going to win the bet and prove that the Book of Mormon was not true. So I started reading. At the time I didn't notice, but as I read I became a better sister, friend, and daughter. I was happier and I was more willing to go to church. Early into the challenge I was reading in 1 Nephi 13. As I read I came across verse 40 which says, "And the angel spake unto me, saying: These last records, which thou hast seen among the Gentiles, shall establish the truth of the first, which are of the twelve apostles of the Lamb, and shall make known the plain and precious things which have been taken away from them; and shall make known to all kindreds, tongues, and people, that the Lamb of God is the Son of the Eternal Father, and the Savior of the world; and that all men must come unto him, or they cannot be saved." After I read this I felt like I had been engulfed by fire. I immediately fell to my knees and prayed to Heavenly Father and I asked the very simple question of, "Is it true?" I didn't have to ask though; I knew that the church was true. I knew that Joseph Smith was the prophet. I knew that there was a living prophet on the Earth and he led us through inspiration. I knew that Christ lives and that He loves me more than I can comprehend. I knew that everything that I had been taught since I was two was true. Now I still know that this is true. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind of the truth of this gospel. I am so blessed to be a member of His church.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday through my actions and my example. I try to be the best example for my friends and my family that I can. I try to remember Christ in everything that I do. I attend meetings, read for my personal study, listen to positive uplifting music, and try to talk to everyone I can about what I know to be true.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Alisa
We need a Savior in order to become like Heavenly Father. Without a Savior, Jesus Christ, we could never fulfill our full potential. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Alisa
The dictionary describes a Christian as "a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings." I can say that all of the teachings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints point to Christ. Ever since I was a little child I was taught to follow what Jesus taught and what the Bible says about Him. Christ's birth, life, Atonement, death, and resurrection are subjects that are spoken about all the time in our church. Jesus Christ is everything to us. So yes we are Christians. Show more Show less
