Hi I'm Alex

I was an Atheist. I used to play in death metal bands. I had a change of heart. And now I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I thought religion was a lie and I was out to prove to everybody that they were wrong. Since I lived in Utah, I thought I'd start with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I thought proving the Book of Mormon to be false would be easy enough but once I started reading it, I found it to be a harder task than expected. Since I was in Debate Team during high school, we were taught to look at issues from both sides. So I started with all the arguments for why it was false and thought I had a pretty solid base. But then I started reading what members of the church had to say about the Book of Mormon and I found myself in doubt and came to the conclusion that God would tell me if it was completely false and to get as far away from it as possible or He would tell me it was all true. Long story short, I was honestly a little surprised by the answer but I received a testimony from God Himself and it was the happiest time of my life. Since then, I served a mission in the Bolivia Cochabamba Mission, I'm going to college and am looking forward to what God has in store in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it's true and it brings myself and countless others happiness. I already know what it's like to live without God in my life and living by His rules works out a lot better.

How I live my faith

Practice what you preach is one of the hardest things for me but I'm striving to live the life that God wants for me. I've been a Sunday school teacher for children and adults, a full-time missionary, and I always look for opportunities to lift others and do service.
