Hi I'm Alyssa

I love music, school, the gospel, and travelling.

About Me

I am a 21 year old Arizona native, currently serving in the Pocatello, Idaho mission. Being on a mission has already brought me so much happiness and peace, and even though mission calls are for us to help, love, and serve others, I have a strong testimony that I was called here as much for me as I was for the wonderful people I meet everyday, because I can see the abundant amount of blessings I have already received from a caring Heavenly Father. I love my family, and am so happy to know that I'll be with them eternally; the greatest set of parents and three loving brothers means I'm the happiest "only girl" to ever walk this Earth! I know the Savior lives, and He knows me and you personally and He loves us. The book of Mormon is true, and I have found it bring an immeasurable amount of peace into my life through the Holy Spirit of the Lord. The gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored through the prophet Joseph Smith, and he was only able to do it through the power of God. I know this church is true, and I take so much joy in proclaiming it to others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am the happiest when I am living the standards that have come forth from prophets.. I am a Mormon because I have received a witness time and time again that this is the true church, and that all of it is exactly that- truth. I am a Mormon because it is the way to eternal life, happiness, and peace. I've often said that my favorite nickname used in the church to refer to the gospel is "The Plan of Happiness", and I am a living witness that this is true. I am Mormon because I want to be better. I've found that the only no-fail way to do that is through the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Savior wants us to become closer to Him each day, and every choice we make can either drive us closer to Him or further away. I strive to rely on Him and His atonement to become that better person that we all wish to become. I am my best self when i'm living the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through following the commandments of the prophets who have been inspired of the Lord. I strive to obtain all the Christ-like attributes that I can, and hope to be a light and a hope to all those I meet.
