Hi I'm Alex Allphin

I am a person that loves life. I seek after anything that brings joy to my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports. I play basketball, tennis, football, soccer, and do all sorts of sports including swimming and volleyball. I enjoy the competitive aspect of these activities as well as the lessons and friends they have brought to me. On of the most rewarding things in my life is my family. I have the best family I could ever hope for. I have 3 brothers that I love to play around and joke with. We sing together, play sports together, and love each other so much. I also have one sister who participates in the joking and playing too. The joy that family has brought to my life is amazing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I should be. When Christ was on the Earth he established his church with 12 apostles. His mission on the Earth was to help everyone and to bring joy to everyone. I am a Mormon because I know that the same church that Christ set up when he was on the Earth has been restored for me today. That church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints, commonly known as the Mormon church. That church, the true church, is lead by a prophet of God. Our prophet is a man who has literally been chosen by God to guide and direct the disciples of Christ. I know that God loves me and wants me to have joy in this life and throughout the eternities following this life. I know that following the counsel of God's chosen prophets and apostles, in modern days and also in ancient times as in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, will help bring me that joy.

How I live my faith

I am actually a missionary for the church. I have agreed to give two years of my life in the service of my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. I see the joy that my faith has brought to me and I want to donate all my time and energy to helping others feel the same joy and love that I feel.
