Hi I'm Alexis Holden

I live in the Deserts of Southern Utah. I taught English to kids in Kiev, Ukraine. I'm on a mission in Poland. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the fourth child of four girls. I became a dancer when I found out I was good at it. I've done many different styles of dance including: Ballet (including some Pointe), Tap, Ballroom (Standard and Latin), Modern, Hip Hop, and African. I'm an avid bookworm. My favorite author is Neal Shusterman.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother grew up without this Gospel and when she was 17, found out that there was something missing in her life. She hoped that there was more to life than just doing your own thing, then dying and not being able to be with your family again. A couple of her friends introduced her to the Gospel and she felt that hole in her life filled with the wonders of the Gospel. I grew up in the church but have always known how fulfilling this gospel is and I feel there would be no purpose for me in this life without this gospel. I will always know that Heavenly Father is always there for me when I need him and Christ will always be there to help me when I make a mistake or am struggling. I know that this church is the true church here on the Earth today and will help me be with my family, Father in Heaven, and Jesus Christ forever.

How I live my faith

I help my parents teach the little kids ages 3-4 which are called Sunbeams. I've taught little kids before and love working with them. My parents are getting older and less able to run after little kids trying to sneak out of class or into the wrong bathroom.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Alexis Holden
I like to think of the scriptures (Bible, Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price) as a road map for life. If we feel lost or unsure of the path we should take, but we know where we want to end up, with God and our families, all we have to do is search the scriptures and it will direct us in the ways and on the paths we should take that will help us get to where we want and need to be. The more we search and study the scriptures, the more understanding we will get of our life and purpose, and we will find more joy in the journey and the end result, even the beginning of everything and how we got where we are today!

What is being a Mormon like?

Alexis Holden
It's great!! Because of the commandments I follow I feel free of addictions or anything that may harm my body because of the choices I make. I feel love towards others easily even though I may not know them. God does. He loves each one of His children and because He knows and loves them, I can too. Show more Show less
