Hi I'm Aleshia

I was born in Pennsylvania, I grew up in West Virginia. I love my family and friends and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle of five children, in my family there is never a dull moment. I just recently graduated from college with a B.S. in Biology. I am not sure what I want to do next, I plan to eventually go back to school to get my masters. I love to spend time with family and friends, just hangout. I played soccer for nine years, and I still love to get a group of people together to play. I love watching college basketball and football with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a less active family and when I entered Young Women I fell in love with going to church. I made great friends who made sure I came to church activities and made me feel welcome. I developed a strong testimony of the gospel. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church on the earth with the fullness of the gospel. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of the Lord, and that Thomas S. Monson is the prophet on the earth today. I know without a doubt the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and because of his atoning sacrifice I can return to live with my Heavenly Father. I have learned through many trials that life isn't easy but when I am reading my scriptures and communicating with my Heavenly Father often, those trials are not so bad.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to always do my best, and relying on my Heavenly Father for help. I have taught primary, children from age 3 to 11, for the last three years. I love teaching and getting to know all the children. They all have such sweet spirits and are great examples to those around them. I also am preparing to serve a full time mission. I am excited for the opportunity to serve others, and to bring others closer to Christ.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes I believe that there is a prophet on the earth today. Thomas S. Monson is the prophet on the earth today. I know that he receives revelation from God just like Moses or Noah. In today's world we need guidance and direction which is given through the Prophet on the earth. Show more Show less
