Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up in Idaho...a wonderful place to live with great people. I play and coach soccer. I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I love life and try to always look for the best in people. I enjoy snowboarding, soccer, and watching movies. Fall is my favorite season because I get to wear cute boots, jackets, sweaters, and scarves. I'm not picky when it comes to eating. I'll try about anything. I'm excited to have the opportunity to serve on a mission, go to college, and one day have an eternal family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member not because I was born into the faith and already had my path set for me, but because I KNOW for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I know that I am a daughter of God. I was put on this earth to become like Him. I know my Heavenly Father loves me and hears and answers my prayers. I know he sent his beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to atone for my sins and the sins of the world. Through Him I am able to become spotless and return to live with Him some day. One of the many blessings of being a Mormon is having the opportunity to be with my family forever. I am grateful for the temple and the sealing powers. I am grateful for the prophets of old and our current prophet who guides us in these latter days. I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I always look for opportunities to serve those within the church and those not of my faith. Through my example and the friendships I build, I am able to share my testimony and beliefs in the gospel. Living the gospel and obeying the commandments makes life easier and happier. I live my faith by being kind, loving everyone, and being confident enough in myself to be me and not be of the world.
