Hi I'm Alisa

The name's Alisa! Welcome to my profile!

About Me

I am just a fun-loving girl! I LOVE to laugh, and always try to make other people laugh. I try to be very conscious of how others feel and want to help in every way I can to support them in their struggles. I absolutely love to paint, draw, sculpt and just create anything I can with my hands. I appreciate people who can make their mark through something they create for everyone to see. I am fortunate enough to claim I was born within the LDS faith, along with my brothers and sisters. I am so grateful for the family I have. I am 1 of 6 children, being the 1st girl in the family after 3 boys. I am lucky enough to say I have a sister to who I am very close to. We all have cultivated our relationships with each other, and I know that we have a loving atmosphere within our family because of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The LDS faith centers its teachings around families, and the importance of its purpose and general make-up. I have seen the destructive forces that rip family relationships apart. As a part of God's plan for us, He has devised a way for us to fix broken bonds within the family unit through the healing nature of His gospel. My family has definitely had its trials, as many others. Adversity is a way for us to learn and progress, and to gain more light and knowledge so that we may understand more fully our own purpose. I have a very strong testimony of His gospel that provides me with comfort when in these times of adversity.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been fortunate enough to grow up in the church among many, and although as a young girl I was not completely aware of why I live the gospel, as I have grown and developed, I have grown a strong testimony of this gospel. I don't know where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a day-to-day basis! One of my favorite quotes from one of the leaders of the church, Elder Jeffery R. Holland, is this: 'You never check your religion at the door'. Living the teachings and principles of His gospel is not a casual lifestyle to me. I have to work at being chaste, virtuous, and overall a child of God. We are all children of our Heavenly Father, and this provides all of us a sense of purpose. Life can be extremely brutal at times, however because of what I have been taught, I can fall down to the lowest of lows, and be brought back up because of the hope and faith I have obtained. The hope and faith I have did not come overnight. Far from! Throughout my life, it had been a rollercoaster, filled with overbearing trials, as well as the utmost of joyful experiences. These areas in my life allowed me to develop a sense of what I want in life and who I want to become. I always strive to be the best person I can be, following the example of Christ and His teachings. One of my absolute favorite scriptures from the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ that is comparable to the bible, is in Ether 12:27. Its main point is about strengthening weaknesses. I am a very faulty person, and know that I have a LOT of weaknesses. However I also know that if I have the desire, and make a true effort to change and strengthen my weaknesses, I can develop a support system that I can draw upon on a day-to-day basis.
