Hi I'm Alan

I'm a Mormon. Music is my passion. I play 5 different instruments, French horn being my best.

About Me

I've been on the swim team at my high school, I enjoyed singing with the Madrigals, I want to become an electrical engineer, I plan to go to college after my mission, I like to play strategic games with my friends, I like playing piano. I love being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon is because I was born into the gospel. I may have been born into the gospel, but I know that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, how could a 14 year-old farm boy come up with a book this elaborate if not inspired by God? I know that we're given trials to strengthen our testimonies, I know that because I've had some of my own. When I was in ninth grade, my appendix ruptured. While at the hospital I received a blessing from my dad saying that I would recover just fine, after that I didn't worry at all because I had faith that I would receive that blessing given. After three weeks I did recover and was fine, this experience gave me more faith and helped with my testimony grow.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to the temple, going on a mission, being an assistant to the Bishop, being a ward missionary, and fulfilling my callings. I strive to serve and be a good example to others.

Who chooses the Mormon prophet?

Alan
The Mormon Prophet right now, Thomas S. Monson, was chosen by inspiration. The person who chooses the prophet is our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
