Hi I'm Alex

I am a student and ballet dancer at BYU. I will shortly be serving as a missionary in the Chile, Santiago West mission.

About Me

I have a wonderful family including two brothers and my parents. I am a member of the BYU Theatre Ballet company. However, I am putting school and dance on hold to serve as a missionary in Chile.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, however, that is not why I am still a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I got baptized, I could feel the love of my Savior and at that moment I knew that this is where I am meant to be. But there are trials and hardships in everyone's life, and during these times I am thankful to be apart of this gospel because I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and wouldn't send anything my way that I cannot handle as long as I look to Him and seek for his help. I am a Mormon becasue It makes me happy and brings me joy. I want everyone to feel this joy too, and thats why I love to serve others. I hope that I and many others will choose and continue to be apart of this great gospel which our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have so graciously placed here on this earth. My leaders and peers in the church have a huge influence on me and the environment is positive and peaceful. I am so grateful that I have stayed true to my faith.

How I live my faith

To me, living my faith is not just attending church meetings. Everyday I try to act on the lessons and principals which our faith teaches. I try to become more like Jesus Christ in all things I do. I strengthen my relationship with my Heavenly Father through studying the scriptures and praying. I am so lucky to be called as a missionary because I get to not only share this gospel, but study it on a daily basis. The more knowledge I attain, the more I recognize the love God has for his children.
