Hi I'm Alicia

I'm from Massachusetts. I was the first member of my family to join the Church. I'm an active Pinterest user. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an Agnostic family. I love playing the piano, flute, field hockey and lacrosse. Shopping might be a problem of mine. I was in an Engineering and Technology Academy in high school and I was extremely interested in engineering. I was an intern for a second grade class at an elementary school my senior year in high school. Those 20 students changed my life forever. Because of them, I realized that I did not want to major in engineering anymore and that I wanted to major in Elementary Education and become a teacher someday. Teaching and spending time with kids are my passion. I was introduced to the gospel when I was 10 years old by my best friend and her family. I was later baptized and fell in love with being a member of this church. I was the first member in my family to join the church. I am currently a student at Brigham Young University. I love my family, my friends and my life more than I can explain.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I am so grateful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how much he loves me. Because of the Atonement, I am given the chance try again everyday to be better. Hearing about my Savior Jesus Christ for the first time and the love that my Heavenly Father has for me for the first time was life changing. There were two people that loved me despite all of my flaws and mistakes. I love the Plan of Salvation. Hearing that I will get to see my relatives that have passed away again was such wonderful news. I love this gospel, it makes me happier than I can ever imagine. I love my Heavenly Father. I love my Savior and brother Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to become more Christlike. I live my life in a way that would make my Father in Heaven proud. Reading my scriptures and praying everyday are so important to me.
