Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up in Kansas. I like to collect thimbles. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attended Utah State University. I am a huge Aggie football and basketball fan. I played on Utah State's ultimate frisbee team and I had the time of my life. I also enjoy swimming and reading! I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I have never felt so much peace and joy anywhere else! Right now I am serving a mission in the California Oakland/San Francisco Mission! It is the best!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I prayed and asked God if the Book of Mormon is the word of God and I received an answer. It's true!! I know that I cannot find another church that I am this happy at. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. I know that He did atone for all of our sins and that if we accept His gospel and follow His commandments then we will be able to live with him again. I know that families can be together forever. I know that when families are married by the proper authority in the temple of our God, that they will be sealed together for time and all eternity. I am grateful for the simple truths of this church. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book and that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I know that Joseph Smith did, in fact, see God, the Father, and His son, Jesus Christ. I know that if you read and pray about the Book of Mormon, with a sincere heart, God will answer your questions if that book is true. I know that God hears and answers our prayers. I know that I am a child of God.

How I live my faith

I am serving the Lord in the California Oakland/San Francisco Mission!! I share the gospel everyday! I am trying to obey all of God's commandments. I know that as we do this, we will be able to become closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. As I read the scriptures I try to find ways to become more like Jesus Christ.
