Hi I'm Alexis Mahrt

I'm a full-time missonary in Des Moines Iowa. I love food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to try new things. Whether it be photography, painting, croquet, or ripsticking. I'm all about learning about new people and understanding where they come from and just lovin' em! I love where I work- with cute Preschoolers all day! I am in the middle of getting my college degree- no, I don't know exactly what I'm focusing on. Learn everything is my motto!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself what it means to be "Mormon." Or rather, to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love this gospel. Why? because it has brought me the utmost amount of joy. Not just happiness- because there are many things in this world that bring you happiness, but none can replicate the pure joy and ultimately love of Christ. I am continuously loved by my Heavenly Father. He knows me and sees me struggle, and loves me enough to let me pick myself up by myself.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings so far- whether it be teaching 9-year olds or helping with activity day girls. I have been a visiting teacher to some sisters in my ward- and I could always be better at that of course! I try to help out wherever I can. I pay my tithing always, never will there be a penny unpaid. I support my leaders and my fellow ward members- especially the bishopric because they are the best!
