Hi I'm Alyssa Harkness

Grew up in Utah, called to serve in Argentina Neuquen Mission, visa-waiter in Iowa Des Moines Mission, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Born and raised in Utah Valley...now serving as a full-time missionary in the Iowa Des Moines Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and through His Atoning sacrifice, I can become clean, pure, and more like my Father in Heaven. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that it was translated by the power of God through Joseph Smith. As I read it daily, it gives me strenth, direction, and guidance. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and leads this Church today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ. He sacrificed everything for us and is the perfect example of who to become. Jesus Christ helps me to live and endure on a day-to-day basis and I am nothing without Him. I know that through His grace and Atonement, we can ultimately return to our Father in Heaven someday and live with our families forever.
