Hi I'm Alex Hall

I love football and my family. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have played football for 11 years. I had hopes of playing in college until I realized that serving a mission is more for me. I might try and play again after I return but I know it's not the most important thing in life. I love my family. I have divorced parents and I'm the oldest of 11 other siblings. Most of them are step-siblings but I love them all the same. I have been working since shortly after I turned 17 and had to balance full-time work with schooling. I did band and played the saxophone and absolutely loved that as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church. However a few years back I wasn't making the best decisions and I didn't want to be a mormon in my future. I got on my knees one evening and prayed and I had an immense feeling of love come over me and before I even started praying I began to cry. I knew then the church was true. I made progress and through some close friends, an incredible young men's leader, and other cousins serving missions I came back and bettered myself. I know this church is true and I know that our savior died for us for the remission of our sins. Through him we can be made whole and through him we can return to live with our father in heaven again.

How I live my faith

I'm still considered young. I don't have any callings and don't do much home teaching just because I'm mee to this ward. I have my mission call to Brazil and will be there serving for 2 years. I love this gospel and I know it's true. I love going to church on Sundays and to the temple every opportunity I have.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Alex Hall
The atonement of Christ helps us to become perfect through him. He bled in the Garden of Gethsemane for each and every one of our sins. He paid that price so we don't have to. By taking advantage of that gift we can return to live with our ever loving father in heaven once again. Jesús Christmas sacrificed his life so we can be made whole again through him. Through his perfectness we can become perfect again. Show more Show less
