Hi I'm Alex Burhoe

I love life. I love being with friends and family. I try to make today the best day ever! I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I love playing any type of sports, being outside, and having fun. I played Trombone and sang in my High School´s choir. One of my favorite things to do is to find something to laugh at every day. Life is wonderful and although I have trials, I know everything will work out in the end.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I have been raised in the LDS Church, I know for myself that the LDS Gospel is true. Ever since I was a little kid, I wanted to know for myself whether the church was true or not. So I decided to do as the scriptures say and ask God Himself if the Book of Mormon was true, if Joseph Smith was a prophet of Him, and if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is 100% true. I recieved an answer, not in the form of a vision or a manifestation. It came as a feeling of peace. I can´t explain how I know it is true, but I do know that if you ask God the same questions, you will know too. I try to learn more every single day about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and every day I learn more. I am a Mormon becuase it helps me be happy. I know one day I will live with our Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I do everything I can to make today the best day ever! Life is hard, and everyday there is something to complain about. However, our Father in Heaven loves us very much and blesses us in thousands of ways every single day. I look for these blessings and try to make today better than yesterday. Jesus Christ suffered for my pains, sorrows, sins, and temptations and I know He will help me overcome them. I do my best to come closer to Christ every day and because of this I am happy. Real, genuine happiness.
