Hi I'm Alexandra Thomas

I grew up in Houston, Texas. My family is the most important thing in the world to me. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and did a year of school at BYU-Hawaii. When I was 13 I started playing basketball and absolutely fell in love. Any time I get the chance I play. I also love watching most any sport. Growing up in my house we went to Astros, Texans, and Rockets games as much as we could. In high school I developed a love for art and photography as well. Also, any chance I get to eat good food, I'm gonna do it. I will do most anything for food!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and during my teenage years have grown to love and cherish it even more. There were a lot of things as a child that I didn't understand or really pay attention to in church, but as I've grown and read my scriptures and attended seminary this gospel has helped me through countless trials. There are times when I question why some things happen to me or my family members and all I have to do is get down on my knees and pray. I believe in His church because the truth of it has been manifested to me time and time again as I've gone through trials in my life or tried to decide what to do. Life is scary and I'm so thankful I've had this church and my Heavenly Father by my side to help me through. I believe we were put on this Earth to go through hard things and be tested and we can't do it alone. We need the guidance of the Holy Ghost and scriptures.

How I live my faith

I have held numerous leadership positions in the Young Women's program. I am currently serving a full-time mission in the New York New York South Mission. I love the gospel and am so excited to be out sharing the gospel with the world!
