Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up in Arizona. I teach middle school special education and love it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from college in 2012. I love my degree, but decided I can't stop there. I'm currently debating between social work, human development, or family studies for a masters. My desire for further schooling probably came because of the 3 months I spent working in an orphanage and hospital in Romania.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that already practiced the Mormon faith. I grew up with parents and siblings that were very dedicated to The Gospel of Jesus Christ. I was taught to serve and love everyone. I believe the Mormon faith teaches us to love. I am a Mormon because its teachings keep me focused on what is truly important to me- family, friends, service, happiness, fulfillment, and a relationship with God. I have learned through lives trials that the most important thing for me is my relationship to my Heavenly Father. Through prayer and following His commandments I can have and improve that relationship.

How I live my faith

I go to church for three hours every Sunday. When I am there I learn more about my Heavenly Father and my Savior and how they would want me to live my life. Hearing other people's experiences and testimonies at church help to strengthen my own. Currently I am in charge of publicizing all the activities my ward has- from activities every Monday night to the BBQ on Saturday.
