Hi I'm Alex

I was born and raised in Kansas. I was temporarily reassigned to serve in Houston, Texas, but am now serving in Rio de Janeiro.

About Me

I've grown up playing soccer my whole life. I have also played the viola for almost 10 years now along with the banjo for the past couple of years. I am a student at Brigham Young University in Provo. I served in the Texas Houston East Mission (THE Mission of the Church), and am currently serving the rest of my 2 years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member in this church because I know it's true. I know that the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ is on this earth and can only be found within this church. The Book of Mormon is a true book, and Joseph Smith was a true prophet called of God to bring in this new dispensation. The knowledge of the gospel that I have been privileged to have my entire life brings me a certain joy and peace that cannot be found elsewhere. I know all these things to be true, and I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and all of His children.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service and example. I try to be involved in as many service projects and activities as I can, and I try to live in such a way that agrees with my beliefs. I am also currently serving a mission in Rio de Janeiro Brazil! So sharing the gospel with as many people as I can, studying and applying the scriptures in my life, and always striving to be a better person are how I am living my faith.
