Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in Utah. I love theatre. I love mountain biking with a passion. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I am not your average run of the mill person. I love just going outside and riding my mountain bike with my dad. There is nothing better than to be alone in the mountains that God has created for all of us. You know it's been a good ride when you can't stop coughing up dirt. I have always prided myself in being different from other people. I tried learning to play the banjo, haven't given up yet I'm just taking a break, I play every kind of video game and I love watching television. I love the theater and I wish to someday see every single play or musical out there. My taste in music is quite odd. I don't really know what I like on some days. Somedays I like swing music, sometimes jazz, and sometimes I like heavy metal. I especially love to make people laugh. I am really into film, I love being able to watch as something that you have been dreaming for, and something you love comes into reality. Then whatever it was that you created will hopefully be able to touch the heart of someone else. I guess that's part of how God feels for us. He has created everyone of us knowing what we can be, and what we can do for others. He loves everyone of us and He wants us all to be happy. I am considering going into film and going with that for a career, but I am still unsure. It's either film, or become a mortician. One of the two.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church so I don't have an awesome story to tell, but it is an awesome story to me. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, because it makes sense to me. It makes sense that God would continue teaching through prophets, and that God wouldn't forget about us. Not only that but I have felt His spirit in my prayers. He answers my prayers and I know that this church is true. Without a doubt. I love this church so much. I know it is true and I know that God loves us. I know that we can always return to the fold no matter how far we stray. And I know that everyone can come to know that it is true too.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary for the church. I have been sent to the Oregon Portland Mission and I love it out here. Being able to help others is why I am out here. If anyone is in need of assistance I will be there. I'm kinda like Batman. I love being able to help others figure out their part in God's plan for them. I have always loved this gospel and I want it to fill the world.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Alex
That is a common misconception about our faith. We do not worship Joseph Smith, we worship God our Heavenly Father and we know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and Savior of mankind. You see much like how in the bible God calls prophets, we believe that God called Joseph Smith to be a prophet. Joseph Smith was called to restore Christ's church on the earth. So to sum it up. We don't worship Joseph Smith, we just think he is really awesome. Show more Show less
