Hi I'm Alyssa Mecham

I am from Salt Lake City, Utah. I am going on a mission to Guatemala City. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and currently preparing to serve as a full time missionary. The thought is terrifying but the blessings are endless. I went to college for a semester after high school and will continue my education when I return. I am anxious to learn and become a better disciple of our Savior Jesus Christ!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. Everything about the gospel has been given to us because we are loved more than we can comprehend. I find myself at my happiest when I am obeying the counsel of the Prophets our Heavenly Father has given us, reading my scriptures to learn for myself, and attending church to feel His spirit. When I put myself in Holy Places I have holy thoughts and am able to see others in a positive light. I am amazed how easy it is to see The Lord's hand in our lives when we only take the time to look. I know this Gospel has been restored through the divine power of Jesus Christ and has something divine to offer us all.

How I live my faith

I strive to show my faith in everything I do, I want my faith to be a part of who I am rather than something that I have. I currently teach the children of the church as a primary teacher and served on the seminary council in high school. I love learning and by teaching we also learn!

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Alyssa Mecham
Absolutely we do. Our Heavenly Father loves each of His children more than we can comprehend and wants nothing more than for us to return to live with him again some day. It's because of that love that He gave the people in ancient times, Moses as a prophet. A prophet that God could speak with and give guidance and direction to on how to return to live with Him. He doesn't love the people of our day any less and has likewise given us a prophet to lead and guide us back into His presence. Heavenly Father has given us every tool we need to reach our goal of eternal life, a living prophet being one of them. Show more Show less
