Hi I'm Alyssa

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter of a single mother of 5. I have been married to an awesome guy. We just had our one year wedding anniversary. I am a proud college graduate. I work with children. I am a family and people person. i believe life is best spent with great people.

Why I am a Mormon

At one point I had a friend question, "Why do you need religion? All you need is love and that will make the world the best place." The gospel of Jesus Christ is love. The Savior is the greatest example of love, service, compassion, and kindess, which is what I believe our lives should be found upon. I grew up watching my mother struggle to survive. She struggled to pay the bills. She struggled to juggle all or our needs. She would cry at Christmas time because she could not give us the things we wanted that she so badly wanted to give to us. The Church upheld her, our family. They brought us groceries when we could not afford them. Sweet women helped to take care of us. The ward's offerings payed for our rent when we could not. Without the Christlike compassion of those in our ward our family's physical and even emotional needs would have gone unmet. I believe in uplifting those around us and strengthening the dowtrodden. I believe in Christ. He shows us how.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living with the love of Christ. I try always to avoid judgement, accept all, love all, and serve all. Obviously I fail in these Christlike, perfect attributes, but with Christ's example I have something to always strive for. I live my faith mainly through service. I try to learn and practice selflessness like Christ. I try to love others deeply and display this love through humble service. When others ask for help I find some way to help them. When I see someone down I try to reach out to them because this is what the Savior would have me do. We LDS, sincerely believe in the power and love of family. I live my life in a very family oriented way. My husband and I are waiting to have children till we feel ready, but we actively seek to help our families. We babysit nieces and nephews. We visit grandparents. We support siblings. We support parents through great trials. We immensely enjoy just being with our families and look forward to the day when we will one day grow our own family and raise them in the love of Christ.
