Hi I'm Alyssa

I have an extremely loud laugh. I love to run, dance, and swim. The beach is my favorite place... And I AM A MORMON :)

About Me

Hello there! :) My name is Alyssa Blackburn! I was born and raised in Southern California and now my family currently lives in South Jordan, Utah. I absolutely love anything that includes being with other people, laughing, and just being my loud crazy self. I was lucky enough to be born into an amazing Latter Day Saint family and each time I am at home with my six younger siblings and two crazy parents I am reminded of how blessed I am. I am currently attending Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah and LOVE IT! I just got accepted in their dental hygiene program and I couldn't be more excited! Look out world... the craziest dental hygienist is coming to a dentist near you;) I love the beach. I love to run. You will always find me randomly dancing. I have one of the loudest laughs you will ever hear. I talk in my sleep [says my roommates and sister]. I am obsessed with peanut butter. Sunshine makes me one happy girl. I have an incredible family. I believe that this life is to be enjoyed each and every day....and one of my goals is to help others realize that as well:)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of so many different reasons but the most simple answer I can give is because I have a deep love for the Savior and I KNOW without any doubt that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true and living church on this earth today. I have learned so many different things growing up in this church that can be a source of comfort and guidance through anything we go through. I have come to know that we are children of a loving Heavenly Father who wants the very best for us. With the simple knowledge that we are children of God, I could never imagine my life without this gospel.

How I live my faith

I LOVE THIS CHURCH! I have a simple belief that if I am truly living my life in a good way and trying my hardest to become to best person I can be, that others may be influenced by my example. I am not afraid to let the world know that I AM A MORMON and I hope that by my friendship to all those I come in contact with they may want to know more about what I believe and the way I live my life. My happiness comes from a lifelong pursuit of coming closer to my Heavenly Father and I truly hope that in some way I will influence at least one person to find that true happiness as well.
