Hi I'm Alex

I'm from Utah, I love spending time with family and friends, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was the youngest of a big family growing up. I grew up in Provo, Utah. I did drumline all throughout high school, and had a blast playing music all those years in marching band. I liked playing video games throughout my youth, and am interested in lots of outdoor activities like swimming, snowboarding, ultimate frisbee, and sports like basketball and soccer. The best times I've had are doing the things I love with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family who has been in the church for many generations. Growing up, I learned about the church and its basic doctrines and practices. I followed them all, and felt good when I did. I remember a specific experience when I was 12 or so, a time when I went and knelt in my room to ask God if the Book of Mormon really came from Him. As I did, I felt an over-whelming sensation of peace and assurance that it WAS His word, and it was written by His prophets. While this was a great experience, it wasn't everything. Several other trials and experiences led me to gain a stronger faith in Jesus Christ as my literal Savior. If it weren't for His suffering on our behalf, we wouldn't be able to achieve lasting peace and happiness, and forgiveness for our mistakes. It is because of the peace I have felt from Him that I continue to live the principles of His gospel. Following His example and commandments is the least I can do to repay Him for blessing me with His love.

How I live my faith

I am on the music committee in my ward, and help to organize musical numbers for church and activities like ward talent shows. I also visit 3 pairs of people in the ward with a companion each month to share a spiritual message and see how things are going in their lives.
