Hi I'm Alyssa

I'm optimistic and love life. I am a pianist, singer, artist and poet. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Salt Lake City Utah and have moved seven times since. I spent most of my childhood in Oregon and love the rain and the green here. I am a student at Brigham Young University and am studying Physiology and Developmental Biology. I hope to someday go to Medical School and become a doctor. I am one of six children in my family. I love to compose music, play frisbee, hike, and read. I love being spontaneous and having fun, and I also love to bake and try new recipes. I love my family, God, and all of His children. I am also preparing to serve a mission in Rosario, Argentina for eighteen months.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know the doctrine taught within it is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, restored in its entirety upon the earth. I know that my Father in Heaven and Savior, Jesus Christ, are two separate and distinct beings and that their love surpasses all understanding. I know that with God, I can truly overcome any trial and obstacle that lies in my path. This life is a time to learn, grow, and become all that we have the potential to be. With God, all of those things are made possible. I am better, stronger, more capable, and eternally happier with the knowledge that God has a plan for my life and will help me as I strive to fulfill my potential upon this earth and return faithfully into His presence.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the LDS church. It has been such a blessing to know from my early years that I was loved and cherished not only by my earthly parents, but also by a Father in Heaven. I knew that I was a Daughter of God, that He had a plan for my life, and He was there and will always be there to help me through it. This knowledge has enabled me to find happiness and strength even in the darkest times, and to live my life in a way that will allow me true and eternal happiness, in this life and the next. I am a teacher of the 3 and 4 year old children at church and I feel so humbled and privileged to be with them. They are so honest, so pure, so kind, and so openly loving and I wish to live my life in a way that will allow me to be more like them. I am soon to embark on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to serve the people of Argentina. I am humbled and overjoyed to have the opportunity to share the happiness and peace I have found in the gospel with God's precious children in Argentina.
