Hi I'm Alexa

I've always grown up around mountains which I love. I'm a snowboarder, guitarista, laugh-er, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Born in Korea, my mother was the only one in her family converted to the Church. She and my dad met there while he was on his mission. I am attending college at BYU-Idaho. I love Hiking, Snowboarding, playing my guitar, camping, and spending time in the water; whether it's wake-boarding, swimming or Whitewater rafting. My friends have recently gotten me into rock climbing, and I am quickly growing to love it. I have dedicated the next 18 months of my life to Serving a Mission for the LDS Church. I am excited for life; the good and the fun to be had and the enjoyable creations of God in nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found comfort in the atonement of Jesus Christ that he has so willingly given to me. He loves me and willingly died for my sins and felt my sorrows and challenges. I am comforted to know of his love. I would follow Him and love to introduce others to the wonderful feeling this gospel has brought me. I feel a great peace and happiness in my life.My struggles all are worth it, to only experience such joy. I feel so strengthened by the gospel and my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I Have decided to serve a mission and dedicate the next 18 months to concentrated service to my Heavenly Father and His children in California. I have sought to know the truth of God and have found it through service, scripture study, and sincere prayer. I live high standards, because I love myself and my Savior who has asked me to care for myself. I would not give up my faith for anything.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Our Church's official name is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Got Provided to us the Book of Mormon which Joseph Smith translated. Because we are usually the only organized church that believes the Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ People often call us "Mormons" as a nickname after the Book of Mormon which contains the accounts of several different ancient prophets. Mormon was just one of the ancient Prophets who compiled the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
