Hi I'm Alise Wiseman

I grew up in Utah. I'm studying Computer Science at Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to paint, draw, solve puzzles, and read. I love to quote movies; eat ice cream; and most of all, spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know for myself by the power of the Holy Ghost that it is Christ's true church. I have gained my own testimony of the restored gospel. Through tests and trials in my life I have come to know Christ as my personal Savior. By trusting and following the principles of the gospel such as prayer, tithing, obedience, faith, hope and charity I have felt the truth of these principles and seen the wonderful fruits they bring. I am a member of this church because I know it is true. I know that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore the true church and that he was a true prophet. I know that God answers sincere and honest prayers. He answered Joseph Smith's; He has answered mine; and I know He will answer yours. I know that Thomas S Monson is our living prophet today called of God to guide this church, by revelation and communication with God, through whatever new trials arise. I have read the Book of Mormon and received a witness from God that it is true, and I bear my witness that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's true church.

How I live my faith

I recently returned from serving as a full time missionary in the Kobe, Japan area. I made many friends in addition to strengthening others' testimonies of Christ. My own faith in Jesus Christ was also strengthened as I saw His hand in my life. I know with certainty that Jesus is the Christ. Life is not always, or even usually easy, but as I put my faith in Christ I am strengthened in my trials. I know that one day, because of Jesus Christ, all will be well. Christ fills me with hope and peace I cant find anywhere else.
