Hi I'm Aleece

i have lived in utah my whole life. I love playing my flute and sewing. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. I live with my mother, father and my little brother. I graduated High school without the HS drama. I am currently going to school to be a radiologist. I served a mission in Salta Argentina and got back in August 2014. I love life and what it has to offer! I love to be outdoors. Im not all that and a bag of chips but I know that my life is meaningful and that it is the best thing in the world. I Have played the flute for 10 years and it is my favorite pass time! Music invites the spirit of Christ and that's why I love to play so much! it is something different than that classy love song or break up hit on the radio. When I play, I feel something beautiful! I love to look at things the way they are. take em or leave em. I try my hardest to not let situations or people in ly life push me around or bring me down. Im not a pushy girl but you can be sure, that I will stand my ground. Like I said, I served in Argentina in an LDS mission. It was the best thing I had ever done in my life! I love the people of Argentina and I loved to serve the Lord. I adore the Spanish language and the culture! Im just me :)

Why I am a Mormon

The LDS Church is centered on Christ and His teachings. It is Centered on ETERNAL FAMILY and it focuses on our potential being. I have a firm belief that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is HIS Church and He runs it like He did in times past, through Prophets and apostles here on the earth today. I am a Mormon because I know that God has a plan for us and the teachings of Christ show us that plan. The church of Christ has been restored and we now have Christ's teachings in its plentitude. I have seen my life been thrown through loop holes and cliffhangers a million times, and its not done spinning BUT the love of Christ is given through His Gospel, through His doctrine and it makes it that much easier. My life is not all laid out before be in perfect detail but I KNOW what my ending is, and I know how to get there. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ we CAN reach our greatest potential..... And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live by my faith by putting my time and effort into it. I do this by serving as much as I can within and without of the church. I dress modestly. I attend my meetings. I want others to be as happy as i am, and that is happiness is the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. In my mission I learned a lot about what our Heavenly Father has planned for us in this life, and it is mainly for us to walk in and live by Faith in Him and His son. He has given us commandment that we learn here on earth and we place them in practice. God does not expect us to be perfect, but he does expect us to try. These commandments are here for our good and for us to be truly happy. I am nowhere near perfect but I try everyday to obey the commandments of god. this is how I live my faith. I may not understand the reason behind the commandment or even if im not 100% ok with it. I have faith that Heavenly Father knows us perfectly and He loves us unconditionally. I know that I am a daughter of God and that I have a plan to fulfill and because I believe this, it helps me place my doubts aside and do as he says. I live my faith by placing my trust in Christ and applying His commands in my life. And in return, I feel his love and feel the peace that He promised.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Family is a big part of Heavenly Fathers plan for us. When we are born, we are given a family. Throughout life as we grow and devolop within our famlies, there will be trials. But it is our choice to turn the trials into strengths. One of the GREATEST teachings in the LDS church is that Famlies can be together forever. Here on Earth, we learn how to have an eternal family and we need to use that knowledge to make famlies stronger. Show more Show less
