Hi I'm Alex Louisot

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City Utah. I was on a competitive cooking team and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member all my life. I am currently preparing to serve in the Atlanta Georgia North mission. I loved playing sports while growing up and did everything from football to skiing. When I was in Jr high I was on the stage crew for 3 musicals- Thoroughly Modern Millie, Oklahoma, and Beauty and the Beast. I continued to play sports in my sophomore year of high school with football, wrestling, and rugby. Then my senior I was a student body officer and a member of a cooking team. I love to cook!!! Am I great at it...depends but it is still so much fun. I love to do anything outdoors. Whether its hike, biking, swimming, boating, of just playing a pick up game of ultimate frisbee its all great.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is because I truly believe that it is the true church. Like I have said earlier I have been a member all my life so I have had the unique opportunity to watch my life go up and down when I do or don't follow the teachings of the Church. I have found that when I really follow its teachings not by just saying so or making it look like i'm a good kid, but by really truly trusting them with my heart i can feel my life get better. It scares me to think where I would be in my life without the structure and blessings this Gospel gives me. I am a Mormon not because its is expected of me nor because I was raised in it, I am a Mormon because I love my Father in Heaven and my brother Jesus Christ. I know that they live today, I know that Christ died on the cross for my salvation. I know that the 14 year old Joseph Smith saw our God our Father and our Savior. I love this church because it has made me who I am today.

How I live my faith

As I said before I am leave on my mission fairly soon so I currently don't hold any church calling right now but in the past I have been my youth group leader. All this means is that i had the responsibility to help plan actives for my peers that we all did together. I strive to live my religion by doing the basics we are taught. Read our scriptures, pray to our Father in Heaven, go to church, serve others when we see the opportunity.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Alex Louisot
The tithing is separated to help those in need. Whether the individuals need help with paying bills or help get groceries. Show more Show less
