Hi I'm Alex

I love to play sports and spend time with my family.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Alex. i currently live in Washington state with my Beautiful Wife and my daughter. I currently work as a project manager for an electrical company while I am attending school to get my business management degree. When i am not working i love spending time with my family outdoors. I also love to to play sports. Growing up i played lacrosse, football, and basketball. I now volunteer coaching high school sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the church, but i have not always been active in the church. When i reached my teenage years i was more into high school and friends. The weekends were important to me and i wanted to do nothing but hang on. I stopped attending church regularly. we went occasionally but i usually found some way to sneak off and fall asleep somewhere.It wasn't until i went off to college to play football in Utah did i understand how important the church was to me. In Utah most of my days where filled with school and practice. At first it was great. i met a whole bunch of new friends. But as the year went on i noticed i was not feeling so great. i started to feel down and did not understand why. I was playing college football, something i always wanted to do. I was hanging with friends every night. But still i did not feel right. i then begin to think what was different about being in Utah from Washington. I then remembered that in the past 5 months i did not attend a church meeting at all. I thought about it for a couple days talking my self out of going to church. I thought of all the fun i was having on Sundays without church. But i decided on Sunday to go ahead and go. I realized that the thing that i missed so much was being able to to go church and learn about my savior. I never realized that i enjoyed it so much until it wasn't there. I decided to clean up my act and serve a mission. I served a full 2 year mission speaking Spanish in California. I loved every minute of it. You can say i became an addict to the work of the lord. Ever since then i have continued to go to church and live its teachings. I am a Mormon cause i believe that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and we have a living prophet on the earth, Thomas S. Monson. I believe that through the teachings we study we can return to live with our savior and father again. I believe our families can be together forever. I believe that this church is not just a religion but a way of life.

How I live my faith

Today i continue to study the scriptures and pray. i also attend sunday school on sundays where i teach 5 year olds the importance of the gospel. I also participate in the church sport leagues they have. I study the scriptures with my wife as much as possible. I also enjoy volunteering my time when ever i can.
