Hi I'm Alec T. Lee

Hello! My name full name is Alec Tanner Lee, I am a missionary for the church in Des Moines Iowa! And yes I am a Mormon!

About Me

I was born in a little town called Winnemucca, Nevada but have primarily lived in Layton, Utah. Growing up I did a lot of hunting and fishing in Idaho with my family, I love the great outdoors!!! As I grew older I really started to enjoy art. After a few high school classes I developed into a pretty good painter! My parents are pretty hardcore Vikings fans, however I am a pretty dedicated Packers fan which always makes Gameday super fun!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

Because the church is true, and before I didn't really know what I believed in. The church has opened my eyes and through God it has made me a much greater person.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the person God expects me to be. He has asked that we love one another and to be kind to each other as well. Right now I am serving a mission in the Iowa, Des Moines mission teaching people about Christ and his true church. A lot of the time people don't listen but that's okay because I have struggled my whole life and never once did Christ or God give up on me, I refuse to give up on anyone.

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

Alec T. Lee
Because without him we wouldn't be able to return to our Father in Heaven. We needed a Savior, someone who was perfect to take upon him our sins. Christ being one of the first born of God saw us, his brothers and sisters, and said to the father," Here am I, send me and glory be to god." He under went every pain imaginable, experiencing every grievous pain or emotion. Then God seeing his son endure this, and with a heavy and saddened heart, had to abandon him. When we feel alone or abandoned it is the lord Christ who comforts us, how could he help us if he didn't know how it felt. And enduring the pains and trials of death, Christ will help us over come everything that stands in our way. Show more Show less
