Hi I'm Alyssa

I've lived my entire life in small towns of Idaho. I love to share my testimony mostly through music and I study narwhals.

About Me

Hey there! The name is Alyssa and I’m a very outgoing person. I am serving a full-time mission in the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission. I love being a part of the Lord's work and being a missionary! It is the best decision I have ever made! I am a very lively person and I love to go on adventures! I was raised a member and have loved it throughout my entire life! I grew up on stage singing and performing in anything that would have me. I love doing musicals and being in front of big groups of people. It is what makes me happy. I am also a professional Quidditch player! :)

Why I am a Mormon

Wow, general much? : ) Um…I’m Mormon because essentially I grew up in the church and it is what I have known my whole life, but that is definitely not all. I am Mormon because I believe all of the things that the church teaches. I believe that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ in the Sacred Grove. I am Mormon because I know that without a shadow of a doubt that the teachings of this church are true! I would be lost if I weren't a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I am a very active member of my faith. I am serving a full-time mission and am loving it! I enjoy spreading the good word of the gospel and bringing others unto Christ. I strive each and every day to be obedient, but I still make mistakes. But I know that through Christ's atonement I can be completely forgiven. I live my faith by knowing that and taking advantage of it.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

This answer is something that has brought so much comfort to me. I have lost some very close family members and to know that I will see them again makes me beyond happy. I can’t explain the feeling of knowing that I haven’t and I won’t lose anyone forever, but I will be with them forever. Show more Show less
