Hi I'm Lexi

I'm a simple girl: love listening to music, taking adventures, and wearing my hat & jeans after my work day is done. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a young lady with my bachelor's degree in Communication who loves to live everyday filled with adventure! As I've started to live my life by enjoying the simple moments I find myself smiling more than ever before and discovering what is most important to me! I love America, country music (lots of other music too), lemonade, road trips, cute baseball hats, delicious food, Christmas with my family, long talks and laughs with friends, and most of all My Savior and his house, the temple, my favorite place to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church, but it wasn't until I graduated high school, left home and started college that I really began to gain a testimony of this gospel for myself. When I read and study in the Book of Mormon and the Old and New Testament and pray it's hard to describe, but I receive such a warm and comforting feeling telling me that these things I have read, and that this gospel is true. I've been building my life upon a foundation of faith and trust in God and Jesus Christ and because of it I feel my Savior's presence in my life every day. That is why I am a Mormon, because His hand has been there in every step of my life guiding me through it all, and without Him I don't know where I would be today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through prayer. I set a goal each week to say kneeling prayers twice a day and by doing so I have seen a deeper relationship with my Heavenly Father. I have felt my faith and trust in His plan for me increase significantly and nothing warms my heart quite like His love. I live my faith by trying each day to be better. And trust me, it's not always easy. I am not perfect in reading my scriptures, and I don't love every single church meeting I attend, but I never stop trying, never stop believing that He knows what is best for me. I live my faith by striving to be worthy to enter The House of the Lord everyday, and then attending the temple. His love is real. His power is real.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is not written by one man. It is a collection of records from men called of God, called prophets, to keep a record of their thoughts, their teachings and their people. It is named after a man named Mormon who was one of last ancient prophets who complied the many records. The Book of Mormon is another witness or testament that Jesus Christ lived, was and is the Son of God. Who came down to earth to atone for the sins of all mankind. By reading The Book of Mormon people can gain a greater truth of God and his son Jesus Christ and praying about it can know with a surety that these things are true. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the most beautiful thing in the world to me. As a child and young woman in the Church I will be honest I didn't really understand it, but as I have taken the time to study it recently, I have learned how much the Atonement means to me. Essentially what the Atonement is, is when Jesus Christ atoned or payed for the sins of the world. He paid and felt real physical pain for the sins of each person that has ever lived and will ever live. Because of Him and His sacrifice we have the ability to not live forever in our mistakes. The Atonement allows for us to repent and ask for forgiveness and then to be seen in God's eyes as clean once again. The Atonement is beautiful to me because it gives me my reason for hope. It reminds me that since I am no where near perfect that when I mess up, I can turn around and walk across the bridge that my Savior Jesus Christ built for me so I can return to being worthy to enter the presence of my Heavenly Father.
