Hi I'm Alexia

I grew up in Southern California. I'm a teacher, college student, and wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the sun! I grew up wake boarding, hiking, swimming, and playing volleyball. I served a mission in the Philippines where I learned Tagalog, met life-long friends, and found my Savior. I am now married, for time and all eternity, to a man I met in high school. We are currently attending college studying to become teachers.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father loves me and you. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for each and every one of us. We all have different plans, but He has the same end goals for each of us. Heavenly Father wants us to return back to him and live in His presence. This is why He gave us prophets, scriptures, commandments, the Holy Ghost, the priesthood, saving ordinances, repentance, families, the power of prayer, and ultimately-His only begotten son-Jesus Christ. The Atonement makes it possible for us to return back into his presence and be cleansed of our transgressions. We have been given guidance and counsel from our Heavenly Father and all we need to do is follow Him and we will be eternally happy.

How I live my faith

In my community, I work with many students in an after school program who come from struggling families. I also serve as a visiting teacher in my ward and enjoy attending church services and activities.
