Hi I'm Alexa

I write silly stories, love BBC, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I have a wonderful family: 5 brothers and 2 sisters. I enjoy reading, writing, hiking and, most importantly, I enjoy being with people that I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I had many experiences in my early life that helped build a foundation for my knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel, but it wasn't until my late teens that I truly developed a testimony of Jesus Christ and his Atonement. I know that God is my loving Heavenly Father, that his son Jesus Christ lives and sacrificed himself so that we can all return to live with him and with Father again someday. And I know these things because the Holy Ghost has whispered in my heart and in my mind that they are true. I feel good when I serve others and I feel happy when I do the things that I know are right. I have seen the blessings that come from being obedient to Heavenly Father's commandments. I love the Book of Mormon and my testimony of the Savior increases every time that I read it. I know these things and I cannot deny them.

How I live my faith

I often helped in the young women's programs and activities while I was growing up. After I turned 18, I became a teacher for a group of 4 year old children, who I enjoyed teaching for several months before being called to be a missionary in the Phoenix, Arizona mission, which is what I am currently doing. I've been helping to serve people by doing service projects, teaching them and helping them come closer to Christ.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Mormon missionaries share the gospel because it makes them HAPPY. They do it because they love God and God asks us to share it, as found in Matthew 28:19, which says "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations". They do it because they love people and know that every person on Earth is a child of our Heavenly Father, and with what they are sharing, they know that these children can become happier!
