Hi I'm Alex

I studied history in college. I love all things popular culture. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in the church but it wasn't until I was a teenager that I really began to understand what it meant to be a Mormon. I love learning about history and pop culture. Some people think those are contrary to each other but I think looking at pop culture can help us understand different generations. And I love a good period drama like Downton Abbey. I'm a huge nerd who loves Harry Potter, Star Wars, and superheros. Now I am an assistant teacher in a preschool, and I love every minute of it.

Why I am a Mormon

Once I was in college and on my own I really started to find my place in the church. I always knew the Book of Mormon was true, but living on my own got me really thinking about why I knew it. The Church's history always interested me, so I learned all I could when I was in college. By understanding the history I gained a greater testimony of the men and women who have made the church what it is today. And with that I began to understand the Church more deeply. While some of my friends have drifted from the church I made a commitment to stay a strong member of the church. Its hard at times but if I focus on the truths I know it makes things easier.

How I live my faith

I've never been afraid to answer questions about my faith, and over the years I've gotten a lot. So I like to be as open as possible with my experiences. People think its hard to be a single in the church but I love the experiences it allows. I help organized activities every Monday night for young singles in the area. We get together and have fun, may that be reenacting scenes from Star Wars, playing Four-Square, or having a trivia night. Its nice to be around friends who share my beliefs and meet new ones every week outside of church.
