Hi I'm Alyssa Meinzer

I am a collegiate soccer player. I love traveling the world with my family. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I just finished my first semester of college down at UNLV. I had the opportunity to play on the soccer team and was able to grow so much. I am from Utah and have three amazing brothers and incredible parents. I love my family more than anything and can't imagine my life without them. I love traveling the world and experiencing different cultures. I enjoy boating, biking, being outdoors, laughing and being around those I love. I have the opportunity to go to the Philippines for 18 months to teach them about this amazing gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because of the happiness and peace it gives me on a daily basis. I know without a doubt that this is the only true church on the earth today. It has blessed my life in ways I could have never imagine and it's hard for me to think about not having the gospel in my life. It gives me the opportunity to become a better person everyday and to constantly strive to live with my Heavenly Father again. I know that Christ lives and he is with us every step of the way. I know that I will be with my family though all eternity and I am so grateful for that. This church is true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a daily basis by serving and loving those around me. I make an effort everyday to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and to be an example to those around me. I stand up for what I believe in even if everyone around me isn't. It can be hard at times but it is all worth it in the end. I have had the opportunity to serve as a leader to the women in my ward, which has truly taught me how to love those that you serve. One of my favorite scriptures says, "When you are in the service of your fellow beings you are only in the service of your God." This church focuses on helping other people and on bringing people closer to the Savior, which I love!
