Hi I'm Lexie

I am a lover of music, sports, life, and the gospel! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Utah State University, but will be taking a leave of absence to go on an 18 month mission to Lansing, Michigan. I love being active and playing any type of sport. In high school I competed in tennis and track. My focus was pole vault, and I was state champion my senior year. Music is a big part of my life, both playing it and listening to it. My favorite artists are the American Authors and Andy Grammar, and I play the cello and piano. I currently work at a natural body care company and really enjoy making bath bombs!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have had too many experiences in my life that show the truth of this gospel, to not be a part of it. I am a Mormon because God is real, and his son Jesus Christ gave everything-even his life- so that I can bear my burdens, so that I can be forgiven of my sins, so I can overcome my weaknesses, find comfort in the storm of life, and eventually return to live with my Heavenly Father and Mother. This is it. This is everything. It just makes sense. I am a Mormon because I know there is more to our existence than life and death, there is a bigger purpose, and it all revolves around our Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I serve as a counselor in the women's organization in my singles ward. In this calling I often visit girls in my ward, sometimes I teach lessons on Sunday's, and I oversee/plan activities for the sisters. I have recently been called as missionary, and will soon be sharing the gospel with people in Michigan.

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

A women we are given the power and responsibility of bringing life into this world, men are given the power and responsibility of performing ordinances necessary for our salvation after this life. One role can't exist without the other, and they are of equal importance. I hold a calling in the relief society presidency in my ward, a calling that was given to me through the power of the priesthood, and as I fulfill it, I am acting with and under that power, even though I don't hold it.
