Hi I'm Lex.

I'm 5 foot 11. I sing with the windows down. I love my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a newlywed of just 4 months and think marriage is the best thing ever invented. I love being a wife and best friend to my wonderful husband. I grew up in a home that was different than my friends at school. I had divorced parents. I learned to stand on my own two feet at a young age, and I'm grateful for that. I started playing the piano when I was eight and played for six years. As much as I loved that, I discovered something that was more of a passion for me. Singing. I couldn't get enough of it. I did musical theater in high school, which allowed me to sing, dance, act and express myself in ways that I needed to feel like myself. Music has and still is one of the most important things in my life. I love to laugh. Growing up, our family experienced many trials and challenges that seemed impossible to make it through at times. But, we learned that through laughter and the support of the Lord, we could make it through anything. Now that I'm married, I look at life much differently. I cannot wait to start of family of our own some day. Life is what you make of it. I firmly believe that.

Why I am a Mormon

Some people may look at my life and ask me how I actually chose for myself to become a Mormon, since I was born into the church. I would tell them that just like any choice in life that we make, people may influence us or try and persuade us to do a certain thing, but in the end, it's always our choice to make. Yes, I did grow up in the church, but I can remember a few distinct occasions growing up where I had to choose in my heart what kind of life I wanted to live. I decided to continue to follow His gospel, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know without a doubt that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that He came to this Earth willingly, to bleed and die on a cross for you and for me. He did it so that our sins could be forgiven and so that we would be able to return to our eternal Heavenly Father at the end of our mortal lives. I know that life does not end at death. It goes on for all eternity. What joy this brings me! I can't even imagine only living one mortal lifetime with my husband and my family. I know that God is a merciful God, who wants us to return to Him. I know that Joseph Smith was put on the Earth in his time, to restore the church back to the Earth. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true and that it will bring you unimaginable peace and joy.

How I live my faith

We can all call ourselves Mormons or members of the Church of Jesus Christ, but what's more important that that is to live our faith. We just recently had a general conference where we heard from the leaders of our church. We were reminded of things that will help us live our faith better. I personally was reminded of the importance of our families. We all have an obligation to take care of each other and show genuine love, forgiveness, and support. I live my faith by serving others. I love to pray to my Heavenly Father and ask Him to please put someone in my path today that I can serve. When I pray for that, it amazes me of the experiences I am blessed with. I think that service is one of the most important parts of our church. In fact, the Lord said that our hands are his hands here on Earth. So whoever we serve here, we are really serving our Heavenly Father. I'm so grateful for people in the church that have served me and my family. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is really a church of love and friendship. I have felt so many willing hearts and hands bless my life, to which I am eternally grateful. Living my faith is a privilege. I'm not perfect, but I'm happy to put my heart into living my faith.
