Hi I'm Alec!

I grew up in Centerville, Utah. I'm on a mission in California. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Family plays a huge part in my life. I have a Mom and a Dad and I'm in the middle of five kids and they're my best friends! It's pretty strange now that we're all starting to grow up and move on with our own lives but it's great to know that no matter how far away from each other we are, we can be together as a family forever! My biggest hero in life is my Dad. He's taught me the gospel, took me camping, showed me how to shoot a basketball and showed me what a good Dad should be. I hope to be like him one day and have my own family to love and teach the gospel just as he did for mine. Another big part of my life is the outdoors. I love to just be up in the mountains by myself or with my friends and just enjoy what God created. I love fishing and shooting and pretty much anything that has to do with being outside. As important as sports and the outdoors are important to me. the most important thing in my life is the gospel. That wasn't always the case though. Growing up I struggled with my own testimony and didn't know for myself that the church was true until I really put in the effort to find out. I read the scriptures, I prayed to know, and I attended seminary every day to learn about the gospel. Through all of that I was able to find out for myself that the church is true and that the Book Of Mormon is true as well. And now I am serving a mission to help others learn about these truths for themselves. I hope that I can help others find the joy I have felt.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a member of the church, but that's not why i'm a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because through my trials and experiences in life i have come to know for myself and gain a testimony that this church is true! I love this gospel and can't wait to share it on my mission.

How I live my faith

I'm currently on the adventure of a lifetime while serving a two year mission in Riverside, California. I joked with my family before I left, that this is the only place in California I haven't been because its' not exactly a great tourist location. It's pretty hot, dry, dusty, and pretty much nothing like my home in Utah. But as I have been here I have come to love this place and the people I am serving. It's been an amazing experience to teach people about The Gospel Of Jesus Christ and see their lives change because of Him. Above all my goal is to live the way Christ lived, and the way He still lives. I try my hardest to try and become a little more like Him each day. I hope that by living a Christ like life I can make an impact on someone else and make their day a little better.
