Hi I'm Alexandra Jo Scherzinger

Hello! My name is Alexandra and I am from Salt Lake City, Utah! I come from a family of 6, and love each and every one of them.

About Me

Hello! My name is Alex, and I am 19 and currently serving a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints. My mother was a convert to the church, and my dad grew up in the church and served an LDS mission. I have 2 sisters ( one older, and one younger ) and 2 brothers. ( one younger and the other is my brother-in-law ). I have a love for animals, and in high school received my veterinary technition licence. I have one dog, and a horse. I love this gospel. I know it to be true. Its where I feel peace and happiness. And I hope you can feel it too.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm not a Mormon because it's what my parents want. I'm a Mormon because when I read my scriptures, when I pray, or when I attend the temple, I have this feeling of peace, and love. I can feel Christ's arms encompassing me, and to me, that feeling is an undeniable witness that this gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I love my faith by picturing those around me as true children of a King.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Alexandra Jo Scherzinger
I have often wondered what my purpose here on Earth was, and it wasn't until I had a life changing experience that I knew why I was here. It not a matter of believing, its a matter of knowing for me at this point. I. KNOW. That I am here to become more like my Savior. That I was sent to earth after already living with my Father in Heaven to be placed in a family who loves me, and be allowed to make wrong choices. I know that it is through my loving Savior and Redeemer that it is possible for me to have a forever family. I know that when somebody that I love dearly passes to the next life, that I WILL see them again. And it is all because Christ suffered in Gethsemane for me, and hung on the cross for me. ALL BECAUSE HE LOVES ME. That I am worth the bleeding back and the windy road to where he paid the ULTIMATE price. HE IS MY SAVIOR AND REDEEMER. HE LIVES SO THAT I MIGHT LIVE AGAIN.
