Hi I'm Alex

I'm from Arkansas. I've started my own business. I love helping people. I love sports and being in the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 and a student at BYU-IDAHO. I served a two year mission to southern California and LOVED IT. Living in perfect temperature with palm tree's and having the beach pretty close made it alright ;) The struggle was real. I love entrepreneurship and I am a BYU football fan.

Why I am a Mormon

There are a lot of reasons why I am a Mormon. But plainly and simply enough, i just feel so much joy knowing that the gospel is true. I have felt an indescribable spiritual power that has come from reading the Book of Mormon. It has made me feel so much happier. It provides peace to me in an often hectic world. I know that it is true because it has changed my life. I also enjoy knowing that God does speak to men in our day and age. It is awesome, but dont take my word for it. Read the Book of Mormon for yourself, ponder the words in the book, and then sincerely pray to know if it is true. I promise you, you will feel the same joy i feel!

How I live my faith

I do a lot of work with the missionaries. I strive to do the best i can to serve my lord by teaching and preaching the Gospel. I am not perfect though. I am preparing to serve a mission for this church. Many people ask me why i am giving up 2 years of my life to serve god, and why i continue to give my time to the lord as I preach the Gospel to those around me. The answer is simple to me- What better use do we have of our time here on earth then to devote it to serving out God? We are called to labor diligently, and commanded to spend our lives proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Again, that calling and commandment is simple. I hope and pray that i can devote my life to this work. I plan to serve many more missions than just 1, and i hope and pray that i can profoundly influence the lives of people around me. I hope that God will continue to give me the resources to serve him, and i hope that i can give all that i have to him. I absolutely love missionary work. I love seeing people completely change their lives as they come to know and accept the love of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ into their hearts. We have been told that our time on this earth is a time to prepare to meet God. And i hope and pray that i can give every bit of my time on this earthly stay to God, so in that day, when i see the face of God, he will say "well done my good and faithful servant, well done." and welcome me into his kingdom.
