Hi I'm Alex

I've been raised LDS for my whole life.

About Me

I am currently in High School and have my mission call to Comodoro Rivadavia Argentina. I enjoy playing the Hymns on the piano and I really enjoy music. I hope that I will be able to play the piano while I'm on my mission. I really enjoy sports, especially football and basketball. I have four other siblings and two parents. My older sister is on a mission in Indianapolis Indiana.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised a Mormon for my whole life. I never really understood what it quite meant to be a mormon since I live in Utah and a lot of people are LDS. As I have grown up, I have noticed that many of my childhood friends have been making the wrong choices. Because of what I have been taught as a little kid, I knew that I didn't want to go down that same path. As I have grown up, I have realized that being LDS is a great thing. I have noticed that I have been blessed by not going down the same path that my friends have gone down and that living righteously is the best way to live. My whole life, I was mormon because the rest of my family was, but now I know that that's how I want to live my life. Over the past couple of years, my testimony has been strengthened and I know that I want to continue to be LDS for my whole life because of the happiness that it brings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing my talents. One of my talents is playing the piano. I have played the piano for priesthood and many other events. I am a ward missionary and it is my calling to bring others in our ward unto christ. Inviting them to ward events that can help strengthen their testimony. I try to invite others to come to church and feel the spirit.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Alex
The Atonement of Jesus Christ was the most important event to ever occur in history. I say this because if the Atonement never happened, there would be no purpose to life. Everybody sins, and there cannot be anything unclean that enters the Lord's kingdom. If Jesus Christ had not atoned for our sins, none of us would be able to enter into the Lord's kingdom. But because of Jesus Christ we can repent of our sins and be cleansed from all of our faults. Because of Jesus Christ, he now knows everything that we go through, not just our sins but all of our trials and everything that we go through, he knows. He felt all of our guilt and he knows how terrible it feels and because of him he can take it all away. He suffered for every single person on this earth and even everyone else on different planets. Because of him we can become like gods and have Eternal Life. Show more Show less
