Hi I'm Alisha

I'm a mom and a wife. I love arts and crafts. I am trying to become a photographer and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a loving Mormon family of 8. My mom, dad, 4 sisters and 1 brother. I never get to see them because we all live in different states. That makes me very home sick. I was home schooled my high school year because of how unfocused my school was on education. Teachers didn't care about you falling behind and the kids lacked morals. I graduated with my GED several years after I finished home school. It was a great accomplishment and a burden that was lifted off my shoulders. Having a good education is very important to me. I never had good examples to teach me how important it was until i got my GED. My wonderful husband of 4 years was there to help me through it all. He always makes me laugh and is the voice of reason in my life. Last year we became first time parents when we welcomed our first son. I love being a mom! At the beginning of 2014, we bought our first house.

Why I am a Mormon

I love The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it teaches you that God's work is not just for Sundays. Everyday we strive to be more Christ-like, to give our time to help others see that God loves everyone. No one is left behind or forgotten.

How I live my faith

I have a secretary calling at church. It is very new to me, I have never in my life been a secretary. I'm hoping my organizational skills will come to use. There is a lot of work to be done to help one another. I have always had an urgency to help others when they require it. No one is payed to do their job when they are called to serve. Our payment comes in blessings when we fulfill our callings.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Alisha
In Matthew 18:18 "Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven". A husband and wife who is married in a Mormon temple will be husband and wife in the life after death. If a husband and wife do not marry in the temple and do not have the opportunity to go to the temple in this life, they will have the opportunity after death but they have to accept his ordinances. Knowing now, in my life here on Earth that I am sealed to my husband and children when I accept his Ordinances, gives me comfort to know i will never lose them. Yes, you will be together with your family in the life to come after we die through obeying, living and keeping God's commandment and the promises we make with him. Show more Show less
