Hi I'm Alex Brinkerhoff

I grew up in a small town called Santaquin in the state of Utah. I played baseball for my high school, and I love be a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Alex, and I absolutely love life! I love to play sports and hang out with my friends just like any other kid. I am serving a mission in Independence Missouri. I love to serve others and look forward to becoming a firefighter paramedic in the next several years. I love my family, my friends, and my faith. I realize I am not perfect, and never will claim to be. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the biggest blessing in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I have lived both sides of the gospel. I have always belonged to this church, but I faltered in my belief and activity for several years. My life was empty, and lacking the joy of the gospel. Several things happened in my life to get me to shape up and realize what i was missing. Once I returned to going to church, I started to see the Lords hand in my life, and that he was well pleased with me again. It was a strong personal testimony builder for me to be missing out on the church, and the happiness it brings. I now am preparing to serve a mission starting May of 2014, and help others receive the gospel that I know to be true!

How I live my faith

I love to go to church. I currently am serving a mission in Independence Missouri, and am loving every minute of it! I don't think that there is a much better way for me personally to show my faith than by living it and serving my Father in Heaven full time for two years! I absolutely love being able to spread his gospel to all of his children! I have held a few callings and I enjoy everyone of them, and the blessings accompanied with them. There is no greater joy that I have received than that of sharing this gospel which I know to be true.
