Hi I'm Alex Astle

i grew up in Layton Utah, i play football, rugby, I love sports and I love my lord, And I'm a Mormon

About Me

well I'm really big into sports and I really enjoy going out with friends and having a good time, as well as doing what i know to be right and true. so i guess you could say I'm a good kid even though I'm not really a kid any more. well that's me a sport playing fun living guy!!!

Why I am a Mormon

so after reading some of the things above you would ask why? Why are you a mormon? well let me tell you my story of why. so i grew up in the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints and have always gone to church but it was not untill years later that i found my self with some friends doing the things of the world. you know "Having a Good Time" then one thing led to another and i found myself in a position that i did not want to be in. though it was a hard time in my life i was raised by good parents that from the time i was a child taught me to live worthy of our Heavenly father and of Jesus Christ. it took me a while to get my self back in to to whole church thing but as i did and i started to share the goodness of it with others I not only found myself with better friends but I was a lot happier of a person and i saw my friends starting to be the same way. so i guess you could say that im a mormon because i love to be happy and love to see others be happy as well. and I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint can help you and those around you to become closer to your Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and it can also bring happienss to you and your loved ones.

How I live my faith

well i didnt do a whole lot in my ward but what i did do was simple and of great worth. some may say that home teaching is an obligation or a chore but to me it was some thing special! i loved going out and doing my home teaching not because i love teaching or because i think its fun but because i love to see the people and families that i taught be happy. some of the other thing i did to live my faith was to become friends with non-members and show them some of the thing that we as members do and help them to have a better relationship with their hevenly father and with Jesus Christ. As well as invite them to word functions and activities. one might say that you could find great joy in doing this and i did i found that joy.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Alex Astle
I personally believe that Mormon missionaries proselyte not because they have to but more because they want to, they want to let every body in the earth know the truth and happiness that comes from knowing the restored gospel. In the 11th article of faith (the articles of faith are the churches 13 main beliefs) it states "We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictated of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may." So with that being said yes I believe the same thing and the reason we missionaries proselyte is to share what we believe to be true. and what has made us happy not to get someone to change faith. but rather to help them to grow closer to our lord and savior Jesus Christ.!!!
