Hi I'm Alex

I'm a daughter of God, the wife of Marcus Johnson, and mother to two darling but messy boys. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a wife. I do everything I can to ensure my home is a place of refuge and a sanctuary for my husband. We've been married for 3 years now, and every year is shorter and sweeter! We were sealed together for time and all eternity in the Mesa, Arizona temple, and we strive to make temple attendance our highest priority. After all, you can only pattern a home after the temple if you've been there! I am a mother. The days can be long and hard, but boy! The years are already flying fast! I play with my kids, pray for them, and do my best to provide an environment where they can grow into men of God. I am a maximizer. I love to capitalize and refine talent. I play and perform five instruments as well as a plethora of dance styles. I particularly enjoy cultivating talents that can lead to benefitting work, family, and community. I am an achiever. I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in two and a half years, and then completed a nine month, accelerated Master’s degree through the W.P. Carey School of Business, both at ASU I am a communicator. I was blessed to grow up in a home where communication equaled bonding. Our family would gather around the dinner table every evening to share the experiences from the day. I am positive. My personal mantra is a “seeker of happiness.” I thrive on opportunities to live life to its fullest. I am a daughter of God. The power that accompanies this knowledge is what brings the greatest peace, and assists me every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon originally, and in humble gratitude, due to my ancestors. Because of their faith in the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, I have been a recipient of life-long membership. However, I continue to be a member of the Church because I have felt the quiet assurance in my life that this is, indeed, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I've read the Book of Mormon time and again, followed the exhortation of Moroni to pray for my own witness that the book is true, and have received witness each time that it is still true. I have had individual experiences that strengthen my knowledge and testimony of Joseph Smith, the Prophet of the Restoration, as well as the blessing of temple ordinances, the calling of the prophet in our day, Thomas S. Monson, and perhaps most importantly, the reality of my Savior's love for me and in His Atoning Sacrifice. I know this Church is true. I know it, I live it, and I love it ever so dearly.

How I live my faith

The best way I live my faith is by supporting my husband. He is serving as the Stake President, and as a young wife and mother, the best thing I can do is provide a stable home for him. I do everything I can so he can come home and dive straight into being a father for our boys. I also work with the Young Women in our local ward, which is the absolute best. I find my own testimony growing and strengthening as I work with these young gals to help them see their divine potential. By habit, I read my scriptures every day. Every day, every day, every day. I say personal prayers to my Father in Heaven. I call our family together for family prayer. I attend the temple with my husband regularly. I visit teach ladies in our ward, and gladly open our schedule to allow home and visiting teachers in our home to help fulfill their responsibilities. In short, I live my faith by the Quaker proberb, "thee lift me, and I'll lift thee, and we'll ascend together."
