Hi I'm Alan

I joined the Church when I was 18. I'm a full-time college student and member of the USAF Reserve. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to spend time with my wife reading and watching movies. We do not have any children yet but would like to one day. My favorite subjects are philosophy and art and I am studying to become an attorney. I like video games, golf, and hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I asked God if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) was true, and He said yes. I had friends that were LDS and I always felt good when I was around them. When I contacted the missionaries they took the time to share with me at my home a message about God's love and plan for me and all of His children. The Missionaries instructed me that they knew that the message they had shared with me was true; but, they told me that I could not take their word for it. They went on to tell me that if I were to know whether or not their message was true that I must ask God. I loved the idea of asking God. It was my heart that I had always tried to follow and it was my heart and the thoughts and feelings there that I trusted. After reading from the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and some of the literature the Missionaries had left, I knelt down alone in my room and asked God if it was all true. He answered me in my heart, a soft and quiet voice, in feelings of wonder and peace: Yes, this is good. Since then life has never been the same. I determined that I could not live a lie and, over time, quit smoking, drinking coffee and allowed Him to change my heart. As a result of my conversion I have found a beautiful life physically, spiritually, educationally, and professionally. All because of the faith and strength afforded me through the Atonement of the Messiah - even Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

At my church I help the missionaries find and teach people about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
