Hi I'm Alyssa
I am a Student, a blogger, a Lover and I am a Mormon.
Hello there, I am Alyssa. I am the daughter of Karen and Kevin, sister of Bryan and Kayla. Other than the gospel in our lives, our other prized possession is our yellow labrador, Nala. I am currently in my first year of University on the University of Prince Edward Island campus. I am studying in the Arts program, still unsure of a major. I love many things, but to name a few-- summer, ice cream, blogging, knitting, yoga, shopping, traveling, friends and missionaries!
Why I am a Mormon
I have been fortunate enough to be born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I am still a Mormon by choice. I have learned throughout my childhood and youth how important it is to keep the standards, read my scriptures and seek daily guidance from my father in Heaven. I am Mormon because I do not know where I would be, nor would I like to know, without the gospel in my life. I love my Heavenly Father and I am so grateful for the restoration of the gospel. I am thankful that missionaries knocked on my father's door and that he accepted the gospel, served a mission and married my mom for time and all eternity. The closest temple to me is three hours away and I am thankful for opportunities to go. I love attending church on Sunday with my small branch. I love them all and they are like family. I am grateful that I have the chance to stand out and share with others what I know to be true.
How I live my faith
It is important to stand for what you believe in. Stand for what is true and right. Throughout high school and even now in university I have found it so essential to choose the right and to stick to the standards that I have because people do notice. People noticed when I wore a modest prom dress. People notice that I go to church for three hours on Sunday. People notice that I am saving physical intimacy for after marriage. I love standing out because when people notice, it gives me the chance to share the gospel.
