Hi I'm Alex Dennis

I grew up in Utah, play soccer, received an associate degree in high school, and I'm serving a mission in Phoenix. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up mainly in Utah with my parents and two younger sisters. I had amazing friends growing up who were great examples for me and we all helped each other make good choices. I worked hard in high school and was able to earn a college associate degree before I graduated. Growing up I also found time to play soccer. Soccer has been a passion of mine since I was eight years old. I hope to play soccer in college and after. Other things I like to do are snowboarding, paintballing, volleyball, and just hanging with my friends. I am an Eagle Scout and enjoyed many scouting activities and campouts. Our Scout Troop even hiked 86.4 miles in six days on the Highline Trail running along top of the Uinta mountains in Utah. Scouting helped me in many ways to prepare for future hard work and fun. Right now I'm serving a mission in Arizona Phoenix! I couldn't be more excited about meeting and serving the people of Arizona and to help them learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church and gospel has been a very important part of my life and I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my testimony with others. When I come back from my mission I plan to attend business school and learn about finance and business management. At the appropriate time I also plan to be married in the temple and start my own family. I hope to teach them the same values I learned growing up of faith, good friends, hard work, education, and kindness to others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon faith and grew up as a member of the church. I have loved it every step of the way. The church has helped me so much with some of my hardships and life and has also brought me to some of my closest friends. I know The Church of Jesus Christ has been restored through his modern day prophets and the full gospel of Jesus has been restored to us in these last days. The gospel is true and I know it will work wonders in the life of everyone if they choose to follow Jesus Christ and his teachings. The gospel of Christ will help you develop to your full potential and make you happier than you ever thought you could be.

How I live my faith

I am currently enjoying my missionary service in the Arizona Phoenix Mission. I have been active in the Church my whole life and have had several opportunities to serve the people in my congregation. I have served as President in the various boys youth groups in my congregation. I have learned a lot through these leadership positions and have always loved the responsibility.
