Hi I'm Alex

I am from Oklahoma, I Longboard, I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Alex, I am a musician and an extreme sports enthusiast. I enjoy longboarding in the spring and summer and snowboarding in the fall and winter. I also play the cello and the bass and find some of my greatest joy in music. Those two things, outside of the gospel, are the two things that I find my greatest joy in.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the way to true and everlasting happiness. I have felt the Lord's love for me as I learn and grow and I have been able to see his plan for me. The only thing that the Lord wants is for us to be happy. I know that that is why we are placed on this Earth. It is to learn as much as we possibly can, be happy, and keep his commandments so that we might be able to return to him someday. Life is difficult, and sometimes we do not always know what to do with it, the gospel is able to provide us with a way. It is a way to eternal happiness, well-being, and comfort. I know that this gospel is true and through it, we might be able to return to out Father in Heaven's presence someday and be able to fully understand his love for us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith first and foremost by trying everyday to become more like Christ. I try to comfort those that stand in need of comfort and providing service where possible. I participate in my community by attending the meetings that are held each week and learning more of Christ and also by reading my scriptures and praying multiple times a day.
