Hi I'm Lexi

I grew up in Tennessee in the heart of the Appalachian mountains. I am serving a mission in Las Vegas Nevada. I am a mormon.

About Me

I was born in New England, but grew up in Texas, Mississippi, and Tennessee. I went to college for a year at BYU-Idaho and am planning to become a Physical Therapy Assistant. I am the only girl of four children. I love my family. I enjoy hiking, singing, dancing and playing the Ukulele. I work as a laser technician when I am at home in Tennessee. I love the beautiful Appalachian Mountains and the easy, down to earth, slower pace of life that is apart of the Appalachian culture. I recently got called to serve my mission in the Nevada Las Vegas West Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I don't know where I would be without the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life. It has been a source of peace and comfort to me ever since I was young. I was born into a family that has been members of the Church for generations. However I realized during some of my own struggles that my parents' testimony was not enough to sustain me. I worked hard to gain a testimony for myself that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. Now, I am grateful to know that I have a Heavenly Father who loved me enough to send a Savior, Jesus Christ, to atone for my sins and weaknesses so that I can live with God again. I know because of His atonement for me, He not only felt the pain caused by my sins and weaknesses but also any other sadness or sickness that I would experience in this life. It has been so comforting to know that, because of this, I am never truly alone. I have developed a love for the scriptures and a testimony of prayer. Prayer and scripture study have helped me to align my life with God, and to become a more Christlike person. I know that the Bible and the Book of Mormon are true, and that they testify of the reality of Christ's life and power.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow Christ's example of loving and serving others. I do this by being actively involved in my community and church. Serving a mission is one way I am choosing to live my faith. I am excited to serve the people of Las Vegas for the next 18 months.
