Hi I'm Alex

I love my wife, I love music, I'm currently serving in the United States Navy, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My father was a convert, my mom grew up in the church. My dad served 20 years in the Navy so I've moved around a bit and am fairly familiar with change. I served a full time mission for two years in Taiwan. I'm now happily married to the love of my life and am serving as an enlisted sailor in the Navy. I love all kinds of music, and can play the piano, guitar, violin, and the viola. I'm always down for a good Burger and some fries. I like running, being outdoors, working with my hands, playing games, and taking an occasional nap. I aspire to being a good husband and father, and someone people can look to as a good friend.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon. Being a Mormon brings me peace, happiness and joy - and who doesn't want that? I'm a Mormon because being a Mormon means that I know who I truly am, where I come from, and where I'm gonna go after this life is over. I'm a Mormon because I have done my homework, read the Book of Mormon, prayed to God for answers, and know that it's all true. I'm a Mormon because even when times are hard, I know that He is with me and will help me get through so that I come out stronger.

How I live my faith

As a member of the armed services, living my faith is a little different than in the civilian world. I still strive to make it to church services on Sundays, given my assignments allow it. And I still try to pray and read the scriptures on a regular basis. Sometimes it's difficult to be as spiritually connected as I would like to be, but there's never any doubt in my mind that my Savior isn't with me. He's taught me that this life we have here on earth is to be a time for learning, a time for growth, and a time for experiencing joy in its fullest capacity - and so I try to live my life in a way that fosters personal development, serving others, fulfilling my duties to my family and country, and trying to be what my Father in Heaven wants me to be.
