Hi I'm Alyssa

I love to be outside. I run a lot. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love being in the mountains more than most anything else. Summer is my favourite season and yellow is my favourite colour. Proud Canadian but currently enrolled in school in the USA, where I run on the Cross Country and Track teams. I will soon be in Chile where I am going to be serving my mission! I hope to one day work in the field of education and help to improve education systems both locally and also in developing nations. & I have a (not so) secret obsession with outer space.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have faith. I believe in the Book of Mormon and I believe in the Prophet Joseph Smith who restored the gospel, bringing light and knowledge of the truth back into the world. I am a Mormon because I believe we have a living prophet who teaches us and guides us through todays world. I know where I came from and where I'm going, and I live each day with a purpose because of that knowledge. I am a Mormon because I can be with my family forever, even after we all die. Which is pretty incredible! I am a Mormon because I believe.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to find ways to help and serve the people around me. I think the best way to spread love and joy is to give more of whatever you have to offer, especially of your time. One of my favourite things is going into elementary school where I help kids with reading and writing. Their non-stop jokes and sweet personalities are the best! I love that when you're serving others, you may feel that you have gained more from than then they have from you. I live my faith by find the good in the world and promote that good.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?
