Hi I'm Alyssa

I love children, music, and traveling. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love learning and love children, so of course, I want to be a teacher! I have volunteered in schools in Ocongate, Peru and also taught as an intern in Shanghai, China. I love music, singing, dancing, and especially being with my family. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Carlsbad, California mission, speaking Spanish. I love my mission, I love the Lord, I love the Book of Mormon, and I love my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but I gained my testimony as a young adult. After high school, my poor decisions left me feeling alone and depressed. The example of my mother helped me to turn to my Father in Heaven and develop a relationship with Him that filled me with hope and peace. As I started to truly read the scriptures (especially the Book of Mormon) for the first time in my life, I felt my inner-light become excited as the truths I found added even more peace and joy to my life. I am a logical thinker, and the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ just makes sense. I can't find the answers that I need anywhere else. Even when I have doubts, I continue to have faith, and the answers always come, in the Lord's time of course. I am a Mormon because in this church the fullness of the gospel is found and by living it, I am truly happy.

How I live my faith

I have taught in the church and have had several "callings" (like an assignment in the church) regarding music and coordinating the Hymns sung in church. I try to share my testimony with everyone through my example, and of course by teaching the Gospel here on my mission.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon, like the Bible, is a testament of Jesus Christ - that He is the Son of God and our Savior. Also, like the Bible, it was written anciently by prophets. However, the Book of Mormon was written by prophets who lived on the ancient American continent, whom also had prophesies and revelations regarding the life of Jesus Christ and the significant role of his sacrificial Atonement. Through diligent study and prayer, coupled with faith and a sincere heart, all may receive an answer from the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true. Show more Show less
