Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in Utah. I worked for an excavation company while finishing high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors. growing up along side the beautiful Utah mountains has made it easy to go hunting, fishing, camping, backpacking, hiking, horseback riding, and riding 4-wheelers. I also enjoy hard work. Despite how strange it sounds I do thoroughly enjoy hard work. I have enjoyed many different kinds of work from hauling hey to framing houses to excavation to concrete to landscaping. I love being outside among all of gods' creations and hard work or strenuous activities make it all the more enjoyable.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church with 2 fully active parents who were my testimony for many years and as I grew I knew I wanted to continue in the gospel and serve a full time mission. I did not know any of the doctrines to be true but I knew my parents knew and I wanted to believe them. as I got older I still felt like I was really leaning on my parents' testimonies and so I decided that because I wanted to serve a mission and had already filled out my paperwork I needed to find out for myself if these things were true so I did what is always taught I read the book of Mormon and as I read it I felt of the truthfulness of the gospel and when I finished it on the night of my 18th birthday I knelt down and did as Moroni invites us all to do in the final chapter of the book of Mormon. I prayed and asked our father in heaven it these things were true. I asked if the book of Mormon was true and if this is his church restored to the earth through is prophet Joseph Smith and in the moment I asked our father in heaven these things I felt in my heart and heard his spirit whisper to my heart "you already know these things to be true you know the truth and you know this is my church and these are my words you need no further witness than that which you have received now go to and doubt no more but have faith in those things which you know to be true." This is why I am a Mormon because I know that this is the lords gospel restored in its entirety to us at this time and this I testify to you in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently departing on a full time church mission for the next 24 months. prior to leaving I did my best to fulfill all my callings and to magnify them. I have always willingly accepted callings and invitations to preform my duties. I love the lord and love serving his children.
