Hi I'm Alyssa

I grew up in Palmdale, California. I love adventure, the outdoors, horses, music, reading, drawing, and learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attended Brigham Young University for a year. I am a missionary in the Idaho Boise Mission. I'm an amateur horse trainer, pianist, and vocalist. I participated in the BYU Women's Chorus. I love learning, and I am always willing to try something new. I think everything about life is wonderful. I'm (almost) unfailingly positive, and I try to do everything I do with 100% effort every time. I love reading, especially fantasy books and regency romances. At one point I learned how to juggle and ride a unicycle, but not at the same time. I want to be everyone's friend, though I'm not always super talkative or extroverted. I love to dance, especially ballroom, and I want to learn everything there is to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love it. I love the messages of love and peace that this church teaches. I know they are true. I know that Jesus Christ lives, and that He is the Son of God. I know that we have a Father in Heaven who loves us. He knows us. He is aware of us. I have felt and seen Him answer my prayers. Everything I have learned being a member of this church I have questioned, and prayed about, and there is not one thing that I can find that is not true. I have doubts; everyone does. I am human. But stronger than all of my doubts the feeling of truth rings through my being and makes it impossible for me to deny what I feel and what I know. I want to be a Mormon. I would never choose anything else.

How I live my faith

I have served in youth presidencies and as a music director and choir director, and a pianist for the children in primary. I do everything in my power to assist those who are my leaders, and I volunteer for everything I can, whether it is bringing food or dessert, holding doors, or helping to set up for an activity. I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in Boise, Idaho and I devote all my time and attention 24/7 to serving those I come in contact with and sharing with them the glorious message of the Lord Jesus Christ.
