Hi I'm Alyssa Brush

I was born in 1996 in Arizona. I love baking and music. I'm a college student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised by a single mom with my older brother and twin sister.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by my single mother with my twin sister and older brother. Our family has had a number of trials in our lives like health and financial issues; we would not have been able to overcome these issues if it weren't this gospel. I know that the Lord has blessed me and my family because we strive to follow Him and his example. I have a testimony that our Heavenly Father helps us through times of adversity and will never let us face them on our own. I love my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ because of all they have done for me and my family.

How I live my faith

I participate in my church by visiting teaching and showing loving kindness the members in my ward. My kindness to others shows how much I love all of Heavenly Father's Children. I also serve my Heavenly Father by being a full time missionary in the Washington Everett mission and by preaching the gospel to everyone I meet.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Alyssa Brush
As a latter-day saint my lifestyle isn't very different than the non members around me. I work at a cupcake shop, then I attend classes at Scottsdale Community College. The only difference is that I obey Heavenly Father's plan of happiness. I obey this plan by going to church every Sunday, studying the scriptures, saying prayers to my Heavenly Father, and serving those around me. I obey this plan because it is the best way to receive joy in my life. There have been times in my life when it seems as though happiness was hard to come by but the moment I read my scriptures and received an uplifting message through them was the moment I began to feel stronger through my adversities. I received this happiness because I was obeying the Lord and the happiness I felt was him comforting me in return. Show more Show less
