Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up in Los Angeles. I'm studying Animation at BYU, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student at Brigham Young University studying Animation. I met my amazing husband here and we were married in 2011. When I'm not busy with school I enjoy painting, drawing or spending time with my friends and loved ones.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon, but I have come to gain a testimony of my own of the truthfulness of the Gospel, The LDS church, and our living prophet President Thomas S. Monson. I have a strong testimony that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of God and that he did see the Father and the Son, and restore the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Earth. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has brought much happiness and meaning to my life. I know why I'm here, where I'm going, and that my Savior loves me. I love that families are eternal and that with my husband we will be able to build our own eternal family. Being a member of the LDS church has blessed every aspect of my life, and I want to share this joy with others.

How I live my faith

I do my best each day to see others as the Savior sees them. I work at trying to have more Christlike love towards those around me. I do my best to read my scriptures and pray every day so that I may be a good example to those around me.
