Hi I'm Alyssa

I'm 17 years old. I love to sing, dance, and laugh. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a junior in high school. Like any other teenager, I love to spend time with my friends and family. I absolutely love music, whether making it, dancing to it, or listening to it. I am the youngest of seven kids, yes it is crazy. I now have nine nieces and nephews and I'm so thankful for such a great family.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing more precious to me than the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I grew up in the church and I always respected my parents' and teachers' beliefs. When I was 12 I had an amazing personal experience and there was no way I could deny that there is a God. Ever since then I have continually strived to grow and learn and I know that this church is special and there is no better feeling than when I am living righteously. I am so grateful to be a member of this church.

How I live my faith

At my high school there are a few other Mormon kids who I am friends with, but instead of isolating ourselves, we all have different friends. Spending so much time with people of other or no religions is really interesting and there is so much to learn about people. I try to show my faith through my friendliness and kindness. I'm always open about my beliefs for anyone who is willing and wants to hear. Every now and then I teach with the missionaries and it is so special to see how people react when hearing about our beliefs.
