Hi I'm Alexis

I'm the youngest of three. My siblings are my best friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student and the last of three children. You'll most likely find me singing and/or while I'm doing things around the house. My family and friends mean the absolute world to me and I would not be where I am today without them. I've been blessed to grow up with this gospel and am the happiest person because of it!

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a member of His church for many reasons, one as simple as this: I know that it is true. I know that it brings happiness into my life because I know that we can be with our Father in Heaven and our older brother, Jesus Christ, someday. We can live the restored gospel and return to be with Them, Whom we were with before we came to this Earth. I am a member of His church because I have received a knowledge of my divine heritage. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and is waiting to bless me if I but do His will and keep His commandments. I am a member of His church because it is centered around the most important eternal unit, the family, and I know that it is possible to be with them forever. I am a member of His church because I don't know where I would be without it. This gospel has made me the happiest Alexis I have ever been and I never want that to change.

How I live my faith

I've found it easier to live my faith the more I know about it. As I grow closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through scripture study, prayer, serving in church callings, etc., I feel more capable of living what I believe. Working with those in my ward strengthens me and through my callings and attending ward activities, I have been able to live my faith even more. I know it's important to live what I believe and preach so that I can be strengthened as an individual and be prepared to do the Lord's work and help those around me.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that family is the most important unit in this life and in the life hereafter. We believe that we can be with our families forever, meaning after we die and leave this life. What a comfort and blessing this is as we go through losses in our families. Family members that are willing to accept Jesus Christ and His Atonement and make sacred covenants in the temple have the opportunity to be sealed, or bound, together for eternity. Show more Show less
