Hi I'm Alicia

I love watching, playing, and anything soccer. My family means everything to me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of three children. My siblings and I have all grown up playing soccer and I like to believe it is in our roots. I love soccer and have played ever since I was old enough to do so. My favorite pass times include playing soccer, hiking, watching a good movie, and (especially) playing games with my family. I have recently graduated from high school and have put college on the back burners because I am now preparing to serve an LDS mission in Canada!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me greater joy than anything else in my life. My membership in this church has given me a desire to serve selflessly more often, has shown me the perfect role model to govern my life after, and has ultimately made me a better person than I would be without this church. I have seen through personal experience that doing everything that Heavenly Father has asked me to do is a shield in my life. These things are not given as rules to restrict but rather as protection from a loving Father in Heaven. He loves and knows me more than I can comprehend and because of this love, He has set up a perfect plan that enables me to live with my family for all eternity. My family is the most precious thing that I have in this life and being given a way to stay with them brings me so much peace. Jesus Christ has made all of this possible and through Him I am able to find abiding peace and lasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I find the greatest way to live my faith is by trying to become like Jesus Christ in everything that I do. Our church is centered upon Him and He is the ultimate example of how to live. I live my faith by the simple things that I try to do every day whether that be smiling at someone I pass or lending a helping hand to another in need. I have found that as I try to look for opportunities to serve, as Jesus Christ did when He was on the earth, there are chances to serve someone every single day. I try to be patient, kind, and loving when I talk to others and listen when they talk to me. As I try to follow the ultimate example in all things that I do, I have found that this brings me great joy. I am also now preparing to serve a mission. Missionaries spend all of their time completely dedicated to serving and inviting others to come to know of Jesus Christ and feel of His love. My mission preparations include reading the Book of Mormon daily, trying to share my beliefs often, and obeying all of the commandments that God has given us.
