Hi I'm Alyssa

I love being outdoors, my family, and being a missionary in the Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Carlsbad, New Mexico. I moved to Utah to live with my dad 3 1/2 years ago. I love being outdoors, especially hiking, camping, or walking with my border collie, Bella. I also love reading, and I'm a bit of a shopaholic! Did I mention I'm a Mormon?

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to live this gospel because I have learned for myself that it is true. I know the Lord loves me, and that he sent His Son to atone for my sins. Being a member of this church has shown me true happiness, and helps me to grow and be a better person with each passing day. I have the comforting knowledge that he has a plan, The Plan of Salvation, that not only allows me to be with my family for eternity, but also live with Him for eternity as well, if I do my part and live my life like he has asked, with faith and humility.

How I live my faith

I have accepted the call to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am happy to be serving the people of the Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh mission for 18 months. I live my faith by studying the sweet and simple doctrine in the scriptures every day, and pray to my Heavenly Father for comfort and guidance as often as I need. I get up every morning at 6:30 a.m.and begin my day on my knees, do the Lord's work all day everyday, and end my day on my knees, and love every minute of it!
