Hi I'm Alex

I am a small town girl from Montana. I love graphic design, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third of six children and I call Montana my home. I am currently in my senior year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho, and I love it! I'm a communications major hoping to eventually go get an MBA in marketing. As for now, I'm living one day at a time. I love surprises, and am up for anything. I'm thankful for my life, the good and the bad.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this Church. There are many reasons why I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The main reason is the joy and happiness that I feel when I go. Its amazing that some of lives hardest questions are answered. Why are we here? Where did we come from? Where do we go when we die? I am a member because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ is the only true church on this Earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that the Book of Mormon is a second witness. I know that Joseph Smith restored this gospel on this Earth. I know that through the Atonement we can repent of our sins and be forgiven. I know that our Savior suffered and died for each one of us. I know that the plan of Salvation truly is the plan of Happiness. I know that we have a prophet on this Earth who receives revelation for each of us. I know that the ordinances in the Temple are sacred and through them families get to be together forever. I love this church and am so thankful for it in my life.

How I live my faith

I am so blessed to be able to go to a church school. Having the ability to go to BYU-Idaho has been amazing. I am surrounded by wonderful people who are constantly building me up. I am also blessed because I have a temple only minutes away. I love the ability I have to do service. What I have loved most is finding out my role as a child of God, and knowing the amount of love that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ has for each and every one of us.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes. We believe that a husband and wife can be together for eternity. They are sealed in a sacred ordinance in the temple. This sacred ordinance seals children to their parents as an eternal family. Show more Show less
