Hi I'm Alec Crosby

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm an Artist. I'm on the Lords Errand. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I consider myself an adventurous person. I love canyonerring (Rapelling) and swimming. Growing up I always loved to draw, I loved drawing anything I could get my hands on. As I grew up I got into Pokémon, Power Rangers, Super Sentai (Japanese Power Rangers), Comic Books of the Marvel and DC Universe, and Transformers. If you could ask me what my favorite Superhero is I couldn't tell you because I love both sides of the spectrum. But I could give you one of my favorites from both sides of Marvel & DC.(Marvel: Spider-Man, DC: Green Lantern) I'm a pretty big Transformers fan, I loved growing up with the shows and can't get enough of it. In High School Art Class, I was asked by my teacher to create a self portrate of myself, just like any of my other classmates I began to work but my teacher asked me to do it in a different art style called Stippling. Meaning a bunch of little tiny ink dots and as a result I won first place in a local art show. That portrait took me 2 and a half months to finish. I love Sci-Fi stuff, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, haven't seen anything else. I like reading. I am currently on the Lords Errand, in the New Hampshire Manchester Mission. New England! #Yeah! #Best2Years I am 19 Years Old. I'm loving mission life! I have 2 Autistic Brothers and I love them a lot! I have an older sister, and two parents that I love in the whole wide world! Until 11/28/16 I'm serving the Lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I grew up in the church. I may not know how other religions operate but I know I'm apart of the right religion for me. Before I came out on my mission. I had always known the church was true, but for me it was like I had this huge awakening that I have to find out why. Because I would never be able to answer any kind of gospel question. So the time came for me to do some intense studying. And so after a time I became more and more intrigued, in the Gospel and now I realize that the church isn't just church. It's a lifestyle! We all should be living the principles that we have been taught. And so I honestly love being Mormon. In this world of Darkness, someone has to rise up out of the filth, and be examples and show people that life can be better!

How I live my faith

I try to live by the commandments that we're taught from in not only Ancient Revelation but also in Modern Day Revelation. I try to live as how the Savior lived, because of my brothers I didn't have a normal childhood growing up. But whose really normal? No one is. However, because of my brothers they taught me patience. With that patience I have learned how to be compassionate with anyonoe and everyone I come in contact with every day. I try to envision what the Savior would do in situations I don't know how to handle, and that's how I generally act. I gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon, that it truly is Another Testemant of Jesus Christ, I know that Joseph Smith is the Prophet of the Dispensation of the Fullness of times, we have a living prophet again on the earth today and his name is Thomas S. Monson.
