Hi I'm Alex

I'm a Blonde Ginger. I'm a Hiker-Camper. I'm a Missionary in Boise, Idaho. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in Utah, and I'm from Indiana. I went to BYU for a summer term. I love to edit films, shoot photography, and snowboard. I love hiking, standing in the countryside, and viewing the natural things of the world. I'm scared silly of the ocean, and I'm not sure how I feel about beaches. I'm really good at reading, writing, and breaking cameras. I feel closest to my Savior on top of a beautiful mountain, kneeling in prayer, and inside His Holy House, or, Temple.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this Church is the true Church of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior, and I think the best thing in the world is to feel His love for us. As I have continued living the way I know I should, I've become so much happier! I can literally feel His love for me, whenever I kneel in humble prayer before my God. I want to follow Him, and simply do anything He wants me to. I know that if I stick true to Jesus Christ, obey all of His commandments, I can live to see my Heavenly Father's face, and not be afraid. I am looking forward to the moment when I can see Jesus Christ's face as well, knowing I did all that He asked of me. All I want to do is serve Him. I know that eternal families are a reality. I know that I can live with my family again after this life. I love them all so much, and I can feel their love and support for me whenever I need it. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and he is a great example to me. I want to end up like him, following my Savior's footsteps until the end. I know Heavenly Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ, lives. They love me, and I can definitely return the favor. I trust in the Lord, I know He will never lead me astray. I find guidance, love, and joy in this gospel. As I live it to the best of my ability, day by day, I can feel a portion of that joy that awaits us with our Heavenly Father after this life if we live faithfully. I end this by saying, THAT's why, I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I do my best to love all, and bring others closer to Jesus Christ, so they can understand His majesty, mercy, justice, love, and heartfelt concern for us.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Alex
We can know our Heavenly Father primarily through prayer, scripture study, and obedience. A lot of people tend to say that they do not have time for God. Well, Heavenly Father is always there for us. All we need to do, if we want to know more about Him, is make room and time for Him in our lives. Think about it, if we don't have time for someone we want to get to know, we won't be able to know them. The way today's society primarily works, is that we need to reach out to others and become more social, in order to be more social. That's the same way with Heavenly Father. If we pray to Him often, keep His commandments, and read about His plan for us, then we will come to know Him, and His Son, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Alex
We must have faith in the Savior Jesus Christ. Some say we put faith in prophets, or men, but that is incorrect. We have faith that God called prophets to teach His Gospel so that we may know how to grow and exercise our faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World. Show more Show less
