Hi I'm Lexie Pierson

I grew up in Utah, I am the oldest of 6 kids, I love music, I am serving in the West Virginia Mission, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 6 kids in my family. I love photography and music. I can't say I am very good at either but I do enjoy it! I love my family very much and I love to spend time with all of them. I love to laugh and have fun. I love to write and I love to tell stories. After the missionary announcement was made about the age changes, I was able to send in my papers about 3 weeks later. I am currently serving in the West Virginia Charleston Mission, and I am loving every second of it! There is no better time then now to be a missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS religion, but there was a time in my life when I didn't know if that was what I really wanted. I was dating a really nice guy, but he wasn't a member of my church, and it was clear he never wanted to be. So I started to give up some of my beliefs and try to live without it. I found myself extremely depressed and unhappy. I started to not only lose my religion, but myself. I was reminded by a small gift from a close friend, that she still cared and that I really was a daughter of God, and that he was aware of me. I began to turn my life around. It was slow, and it was hard. But I can promise you, that it was worth it. There is no better way to find happiness than through the love of our Savior, and through his true gospel. And that, is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by LIVING my faith. I believe that God has a plan for each one of us and that He has provided us help along the way. The world sometimes thinks that He asks too much of us, but I know that He only asks that which will benefit us. He has asked us to live high standards because He expects so much of us, and because He knows we have so much potential. I know that He blesses us daily, and even more when we do hard things. If we looked a little harder, we could see how closely He works in the details of our lives. I know that my life has been tremendously blessed when I simply do as He asks.
