Hi I'm Alyssa Behrend

I am a young woman who lives in Utah. I am a singer. I am an actress. I am a Mormon

About Me

My name is Alyssa. I have a passion for musical theatre and sometimes pretend I'm a famous Broadway star. I love school. I have a thirst for knowledge, and I feel like getting an education is super important. My favorite class has to be Seminary. I love the gospel so much. Without it, I don't think I could do everything that I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I feel free. I feel like people can trust me more and therefore I have more freedom. I love how the gospel is for everyone. Not just for me, though sometimes it feels like certain things are just for me. I also love how it teaches about the Savior's atonement. No matter how far away I go, he is waiting for me. It doesn't matter if I forget who I am, his arms are always reaching out for me to run to. It's an amazing feeling. I sincerely love that thought, that whether I am down in the pit of despair, or doing all that is right, he is still waiting for me to run to him.

How I live my faith

I'm only a youth, so I'm in young womans. I absolutely love all the girls in my ward. We all get a long for the most part. Sometimes there's some rough spots if someone doesn't feel welcome, but we are small and try to make everyone feel welcome and safe. At least feel safe when they come. That is the most important thing, that everyone feels safe.
