Hi I'm Alexa Hoffman

I love laughing. I'm serving in the Vegas West Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Alexa, I am 20 years old and I have a very large family; I am the second youngest. My siblings are my favorite people in the world and I actually like hanging out with my parents! I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life and love it! I'm a pretty outgoing person- I love music, dancing, YouTube, food, chick flix and the Packers. I love laughing and having fun! I am a student at BYU, and I am currently serving the Lord in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I've asked God what is right. I studied the scriptures and prayed and I know that the Church of Jesus Christ is Christ church on the earth today. Not only did it logically make sense in my mind, but more importantly, I've felt that this is true. I know it is.

How I live my faith

For me, it's really important to be an example to everyone around me, especially my family. I have young nieces and nephews who pick up on the things that I'm doing and want to do them too. I always try to live my faith exactly how I would if Jesus Christ himself was next to me.

What is being a Mormon like?

Alexa Hoffman
Being a mormon is amazing. You may stand out in a crowd, but it is for all the right reasons: being clean cut, having good language and being friendly. Sometimes it may be hard to stand alone, but Christ and Heavenly Father will always help us. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Alexa Hoffman
Being a missionary, I feel I can give a pretty valid answer. When the missionaries visit your home, they will share a message about Jesus Christ and His church being restored on the earth. When Jesus Christ was on this earth, He established a church with apostles. That same church has been restored with authority from God, and a living prophet and apostles. This message will change your life if you listen to the message, and act on it. Praying to know if it is true and doing all the missionaries ask you to do. They will not ask you to do something out of an obligation to them, but because both they and God want you to know that this message is true. Show more Show less

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Alexa Hoffman
When Christ established His church, He called 12 to be apostles. This was the period of time on Earth when the fullness of the gospel was on Earth. When Christ returned to Heavenly Father after His Resurrection, the apostles began to be killed and taken away from the people on the earth. Heavenly Father loves us so much, that He has again given us apostles to guide us in our lives today. Show more Show less
