Hi I'm Alex

I love to snowboard in fresh mountain powder, annoy my little brother and pretend to know difficult magic tricks.

About Me

My life has always been somewhat easy. I haven't had too many rough experiences which brought me down. The ones that I have had have made me a stronger person and hopefully a better human being. I love to learn new things. Experiences are the riches of life. I have a wonderful family with 2 older sisters, a younger brother and two excellent parents. They were all very good examples to me in my life on how to live life. We are lucky enough to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives to bring us closer together. We have had the opportunity to serve other people in places like Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Alaska and Britain.

Why I am a Mormon

People talk about a good feeling they get when they do kind things or do something right. More than anything else I love that feeling. It's the Holy Ghost telling me that what I am doing is right and is sanctioned by our Heavenly Father. You feel like you are on cloud 9 and it brings happiness. I didn't always have that feeling. I kind of just walked through life looking for the next couple minutes of happiness I could scrape up and live off that. Now it's a lasting happiness that I can take with me and share with others. Jesus Christ makes it possible for all of us to live with God again someday. His atonement has cleansing power which I can only scratch the surface of. All I can say is that I felt it and it's real. It wipes away anything that is wrong or unclean in our lives.

How I live my faith

I try to be kind to other people. I go to church and listen to the things there so that I can take them with me to make not only my week better, but my life better. I find when I am serving other people and have my thoughts on them, I forget about the little problems I have. When I focus on helping them, things in my life seem to align together. I am always striving to be a little better than the last day. I screw up a lot and wish I could do better. With the gospel in my life I can do that.
