Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in Idaho. I enjoy sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy learning, playing, and and seeing what is great about the world.

Why I am a Mormon

In my family my dad belongs to the Roman Catholic faith and my mom is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I grew up as a Roman Catholic and would attend mass with my dad and brother and sister. I have been able to learn some great life lessons from both of my parents. Ultimately, it is my mom's example and her sharing about the church with me that led me to want to learn more about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. While in college I decided to go to a church service for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I was walking to the campus church building I thought to myself that if nobody invited me back or to an activity then I probably wouldn't come back for a while. When I entered the church doors I immediately met someone who invited me to watch some basketball at another members house. I accepted. They asked if I would be coming back to church. I did end up going back and I started learning more from the missionaries. I had a wonderful experience learning from the missionaries. During my investigation of the church, I would read from pamphlets that the missionaries gave me as well as the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I prayed for direction from God and I continued attending Sunday church services. The Holy Spirit let me know that this Church was where God wanted me to be. I was baptized in the church and enjoy being part of Jesus Christ's church that is on the earth today. I know the Book of Mormon to be the word of God written by Prophets that lived in the Americas. God hears and answers prayers and he will guide the honest seeker of truth to that truth that is sought after.

How I live my faith

I rely on prayer, studying scriptures, and attending church on Sundays to help me maintain the strength to grow, improve, and continue building a relationship with God. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had to share my beliefs with others. It brings me joy to help others get closer to Jesus Christ and to see these individuals make steps to come closer to Him. I know that this is made possible with God's help.
