Hi I'm Alysa

I love the outdoors. I love to laugh. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am the youngest of four girls. I have many different hobbies, among which are playing the piano, acting, reading, and spending time with my family. I am currently serving a mission in the New York Utica Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in raised in the church. For a long time, I went to church because that's what I grew up doing. Then one day, my leaders invited me to do what Joseph Smith did long ago, and pray about everything. I spent many hours reading scriptures and praying. It didn't come right away, but eventually, I knew that what I was learning was true. I know that this is the true church. I know that when Joseph Smith prayed, he received an answer. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and that Joseph Smith, under direction from God, restored the Lord's church. I know that we have living prophets today who speak for our Heavenly Father to lead and guide us. For me, this is what's most important in my life.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week and enjoy taking the time to learn about the Gospel. In my college ward, I had a calling, which I loved to fulfill. Now, I am currently serving a mission in upstate New York. I love sharing what I know with many others and learning many different things from them as well.
