Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up in Utah. I work at a preschool for children with autism. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a farm girl who grew up in a very small town where everybody knows everybody. Growing up in a small farming community taught me how to work hard, a love for animals, and how to help others. I love to work with special needs people and am majoring in Special Education. Some of my hobbies are reading, oil painting, riding horses, and dancing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know with everything in me that this is the true church. I've had many experiences that have confirmed this both gently but also powerfully. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and all of His children and wants us to be truly happy. I know that through the Atonement and our Savior, Jesus Christ, that I can return to live with God again and have eternal joy. I've gone through some hard times and I know that my Savior has been there with me through everything even if it was to comfort me. I'm grateful to know the truth and to have the gospel in my life. I'm so grateful for God's love.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a full-time missionary. This gospel is so precious to me that I can't keep it to myself. This joy, this happiness that has been brought into my life can be shared.
