Hi I'm Alyse

I am a mormon

About Me

My name is Alyse I grew up in Washington. I love to run anything from 5ks to marathons! I am a student at Brigham Young University studying photography. I am taking a break from all that for 18 months in order to serve a mission for the Lord in Hong Kong,China. I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel is true. I know that by living the gospel I can be happy and that I am a better person for the things that I have learned through this gospel. I know that families can be together forever. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that I can live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. Last conference our prophet, Thomas S. Monson, shared about how we need to see people as they can become, not as they are now. I strive to live with this in mind and its one of the reason why I want to serve a mission. I know the gospel changes lives and I know that through this gospel people learn and grow in magnificiant ways. I know that with the gospel people are able to reach their greatest potentials and I want to always strive to see people at their greatest potential.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through attending church meetings and striving daily to live a more Christlike life. Christ through his example of how he lived on this earth has taught me how I should live my life. I strive to read my scriptures and pray to my Heavenly father daily in order to become closer to him. I know that through doing this I recieve answers to my prayers and learn of how my Heavenly Father wants me to live. I live my faith by doing my best to see the light of Christ in everyone I meet and when i can, reaching out to others who may be in need of my help.
