Hi I'm Alisa

I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love playing sports and going on adventures. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Sports have always been a big part of my life. I grew up playing soccer and in high school I fell in love with running hurdles in track. This past year, I had the opportunity to run hurdles at the collegiate level. I absolutely LOVE going on adventures in the mountains. Hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, trail running, snowboarding, snowshoeing, you name it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel brings me more joy than anything in this world. Knowing that I can be with my family eternally, after we have passed on from this life, has brought me so much peace as I've watched family members pass away. I also know that I have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who suffered and died so that I may be cleansed from my sins and have the strength to align my will with God's. The strength and peace I've received from the covenants I've made in God's temple daily give me strength to continue on the Lord's path.

How I live my faith

Right now, I live my faith by accepting the call to serve an 18 month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to Mexico. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to share the joy this Gospel has brought me with my brothers and sisters in Mexico. I live my faith mainly through my interactions with other people. Every human being is a child of our Heavenly Father. We are Children of God. Each individual has more potential and worth than I believe any of us truly can understand. Our loving Heavenly Father has given each of us gifts and talents in which we are able to help one another along in this journey of life. I live my faith each day in small and simple ways by uplifting others and trying to help them see the power they can be for good.
