Hi I'm Alex Anderson

I'm a pathological Daydreamer and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Currently I am a missionary in Southern California. Although, before I began my missionary service you could probably find me crafting or peeking my nose in every and any thrift store or, more realistically finding reasons not to study. I grew up with a fabulous family! I am number six out of eight children, plus two amazing Parents who must have done something right because we all turned out. But really I love my family!! I love to design and sew! I have a love for historical fashion or in more hipster terms, I love vintage! I collect and wear it as well as use it for inspiration! I love the Theater and have since I was a small child. My Dad and I participate in a local community theater and have a large obsession with classic musicals and well...old movies in general! You also might find I'm a little bit of a nerd, but not to hardcore! Reading is also a hobby that I have increasingly come to love! Strangely enough I love classics and children's books, and I think when I get off my mission I'm going to try and get into science fiction! Sounds interesting... And to sum the rest up I also love microwaved burritos, corn dogs, bicycles, cats, and falling asleep to Netflix, classy I know, but the truth!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed about the Book of Mormon and I have received a witness from God that it is true. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and want me to return to him. I know that Jesus Christ Died and suffered for me. I know that we have a modern day prophet who guides this church and its people, and I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God who was called to bring forth Gods church in the Latter Days! I love that this church gives me an Eternal perspective of where I came from and where I am going. I find comfort in living the Gospel teachings and I know that living the commandments is what brings lasting happiness!

How I live my faith

Currently, I am living my Faith by serving 18 months as a missionary. During this 18 month period I dedicate all my time to serving the Lord and helping others come unto Christ. Before my mission I was serving as a Sunday School teacher for girls 12 to 13.
