Hi I'm Alex

I grew up in a little town in southern Utah where I gained a life long love for the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Alex. I am the youngest of four in an awesome family. I have two older sisters and one brother. Ever since I was little, I've loved to be outside. My Family and I always spent the weekends hiking, camping or traveling. I like to mountain bike and love to swim. My favorite season is the summer because I love the heat. I've been to one semester in college, where I plan to get a degree in biology before I go on to pharmacy school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the gospel and the promises that it has made to me. The idea that I can live happily with my family forever rings to true. I am a Mormon because I believe that I will live again after this life with my Heavenly Father. The gospel brings joy and happiness to my soul. There are people that I have met though the church that have truly changed my life forever and make me want to be a better person every day.

How I live my faith

Attending and being active in church has always been a big part of my life. I've had the opportunity to serve in many positions in the church and have made life long friends in the process. I love the chances we get to serve and bring joy to the people around us. In my home congregation there is a real sense of community and love that everyone feels. Everyone always does their best to make everyone feel welcome and part of the group. We are all God's children and are literal brothers and sisters. And what better way to love them, than to serve them.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

The family is the base unit of society, and is crucial is raising children and instilling righteous values in them. Families teach us how to love and that we are not alone. Show more Show less
