Hi I'm Alisha Reed

I'm from a small town in Cache Valley Utah. I am a social media marketer, fighting between loving food and being healthy.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Northern Utah where I learned about hard work and family. When I was 19 years old I left my family to serve a mission in the California Redlands Mission. That decision changed my life. While serving I met the elder who would one day become my husband. We were married October 2015. Now I attend Utah State University and major in Communications and English. I currently work for a social media marketing firm in Logan, Utah. My husband and I are so blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because it makes me happy. The pure joy and love that I get from going to church and feeling the spirit is something that I don't ever want to be taken from me. I'm Mormon because it's what I want to do. Since moving out for college I have learned where my testimony really is. Nobody is telling me to go to church here, nobody cares. But I choose to go to Church because I want to live the Gospel and grow in it. I'm also Mormon because it just makes sense. This gospel is so simple and fulfilling that how could I not live it? There have been times in my life where I didn't want to live it and I was miserable. The church is a wonderful thing that can bring peace to anyone. I know the Church is true and that knowledge helps me through everything. I know that God is my father and He is watching out for me. I know that Christ is my older brother, and that He died for. I love the blessings that the Atonement brings to my life. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is called of God and that he receives revelation for the church. I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet. How could a farm boy, with very little education, write and immensely powerful book such as the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ. Everything in it teaches us to be like Him and strive to make it back to the Kingdom of God. I love this Gospel, I know that it can bring peace to anyone who has humbled themselves to receive it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best I can be everyday. I may not be perfect but I am trying.
