Hi I'm Alyssa Lewis

I love to laugh, sing, run, play and serve. I love my family and friends. I love that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am a student at Brigham Young University. I am an aspiring accounting student. I love to serve and help those around me. I am the oldest of 6 kids and I love traveling with my family. Together we have been to 41 states, and we drove to most of them. I love to run. I ran track and cross country in high school. I have sung in choirs through out my life. I also play the piano and the violin. My favorite thing to do is to laugh with my friends and family. I enjoy doing what they love to do. I will work really hard to see someone smile. And I love this gospel with all my heart. It has strengthened me and helped me become a better friend, sister, and daughter. It has made me who I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church all my life. But I am a Mormon by my own choice. I have a testimony of this Gospel. I have felt the spirit testify to my heart that the things I have been taught are true. I have read the Book of Mormon and taken the challenge that Moroni gives at the end. I have prayed to know if the Book of Mormon is true. I received my witness from the Holy Ghost. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I have felt his love and peace in my life. I know that Jesus Christ came to this earth so that we could have an example to follow. I know that He atoned for our sins and that He bled and died so that we can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father. I know that we can be forgiven of our sins, because I have felt the guilt being swept away as I repent. I know that our trials can bring us closer to Heavenly Father if we turn to Him and focus our live on His teachings and gospel. I have experimented again and again as I face challenges and I know it to be true. I know that Heavenly Father has a plan for us on this earth. He sent us here to learn through faith. He wants us to come back home to Him, and because His son suffered for our sins, we can live with Heavenly Father again. I know that we can see our families and loved ones again. I have felt peace in my heart as loved ones have passed away. Heavenly Father love all of His children and I know that we can all feel of His love as we follow the Prophet that He has called to lead us at this time.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by strengthening the faith of those around me. I try to be the best example I can be to my younger siblings. I serve those around me whenever I can. It doesn't always have to be something big but whatever they need. I live my faith every moment of everyday because I have been taught to have integrity. I read my scriptures and say my prayers. I am currently serving a mission in Pennsylvania. I teach those who will listen the things I believe and as such I follow the example of Jesus Christ by being exactly obedient to the rules and commandments. I love my Heavenly Father and that is why I choose to do things the way He has asked. There is no commandment He will give us unless we can accomplish it. I have learned this through experience and through trials of faith.
