Hi I'm Alicia

I have a very closely knit family. I love to spend time with friends and truly enjoy my life. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love music! I can play the violin, piano, and guitar. I also love to sing. In high school, I was a member of the soccer and track n' field teams. I was also a member of the student government and seminary council my senior year. As you can tell, I love to be involved and help others as much as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? Well, it would be easy to say that I am Mormon because my family is Mormon, but that is not entirely true. Yes, I was brought up in the church, and I thank Heavenly Father every day for my wonderful parents for raising me, but I am a Mormon because I want to be. I go to church every Sunday because I love the church! I have read the Book of Mormon more than once, and I have prayed for a witness of the truth of this church, and I testify that it is TRUE. I know that Heavenly Father LOVES me! Whenever I need a hug, I can pray to Him, and I feel that love. I know that Jesus Christ died for me. He died for all of us so that we can repent of our sins, become clean and live with Him again. And I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. That is one reason why I want to go on a mission to Guatemala, because I think that everyone deserves to know that there is are at least two people I know who love them unconditionally, their Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. All they need to do is pray for a witness of that love, and if they pray with a sincere heart and real intent, I know that they will feel that love.

How I live my faith

I have held a few callings in the past, but the most recent is that I have been called to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am going to teach the gospel and spread the love of Heavenly Father to the wonderful people of Guatemala for the next 18 months. I could not be more excited to share with them the great happiness that comes from this gospel.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

This is how I think of the word of wisdom, personally, I want to be able to always control my decisions. When we are under the influence, we don't have that control any more. Not only that, but there are long lasting effects of using these substances, and I want to live a long and healthy life, free of anything harmful and addicting. It is a personal choice I have made to stay clean, and I know that when anyone makes that decision, they are blessed. Show more Show less
