Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in Utah, I speak Spanish, Chinese, Russian and little bit of Arabic, I love the world's cultures, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest child in a family of ten. I could talk to you for a hundred years and never be able to fully express how much my family means to me. I love how we're so close, we're all best friends and amazing support for one another. I learn so much from each of my siblings, and especially my parents. I see in them the kind of person I should be if I want to live a blessed and happy life. It's through my own family that I understand why families are fundamental to the God's Plan of Happiness. My interests span a pretty broad range of subjects, but a simple way to put it is that I enjoy most the things that can be done with my close friends or family. Sports, games, visits, movies, anything I do with people I care about is what I enjoy the most. But I especially love different cultures and languages. I speak Spanish, Russian, Chinese, a little bit of Arabic and one of my passions is expanding my understanding of from people around the world. I'm very blessed; people say that language comes easily to me. I want to use that blessing my life to serve other people, and when I have the money, I'd love to go to China or South America or another region of the world to do humanitarian work, teach, do anything I can for the people.

Why I am a Mormon

I didn't have an extraordinary, life-changing experience that led me to become a Latter-day Saint. I didn't need one. What helped me to realize the church is true came through the promptings and feelings given to me by the Holy Spirit, who testifies of God's love for us and helps us see the truth of all things. The influence of the Holy Spirit is what led me to my Father in Heaven, through small but powerful testaments that He is there, that I'm His son and that He has a purpose for me in this world. Daily, little situations provide me with opportunities to let me know he was there; the feeling of peace, comfort and strength I feel whenever I come before Him in prayer because I know I'm not able to do something on my own. The times when I feel absolutely alone, the feelings of love and belonging that I get when I realize that He will always love me, unconditionally.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through studying the gospel and trying to understand all that it says so that I can incorporate the teachings into my life. I strive to remember the Lord and our Father in Heaven in all that I do and try to exhibit charity, service and love to those around me. I live my faith by standing up for what I believe in and never denying what I know to be true. I live my faith by letting people know what I believe and offering them the opportunity to learn more about my beliefs if they desire. I live my
