Hi I'm Alex!

I am an artist, a sister, and a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in South Dakota. I am the big sister of two of the best people in the whole world. I love my crazy, hippy, hilarious Mom and Dad, --gardens and all. I love the outdoors! Camping, hiking, biking, going to the lake, wakeboarding, longboarding, snowboarding, I love it all! I have a passion for art, I love to paint, do pottery, and photography. I love spending time with my family and friends. I plan to attend college for design and journalism. I love indy music and the drums, I believe that Peanut Butter is manna from heaven, cartoons are the only way to go, and snow is the prettiest thing on earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but took my own routes to find out if it was something I wanted to pursue my whole life. I found that the church is more that a religion to me, its who I am. Without the belief and focus on the Savior Jesus Christ in my life I wouldn't be half the person Im becoming (luckily its always a work in progress!). Its given me purpose and drive to do my best. Ultimately I am a mormon, because I know that Jesus Christ restored his Church and this is it! I want to be a part of it and share with all I know!

How I live my faith

Currently, I'm serving a full time mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a missionary I teach people about Jesus Christ and the things he taught the people. He taught simple doctrine and invited the people to do their best, follow him, keep the commandments and be baptized so they could live with God again someday. As missionaries we do our best to invite others to do the same thing! Everything we teach is centered on him and his teachings. Its amazing to see the changes that people go through as they come to know there is a God- and then begin to feel his love. I know that by keeping the commandments we are protected from the evils of the world and we can feel true joy. I live my faith by going and doing the things that make me happy, and make my Father in Heaven proud.
