Hi I'm Alyssa

I am a missionary, college student, daughter, and runner. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I have been called to serve an LDS mission, and I couldn't be more excited! When I return home from my mission, I will continue my studies as a health science major and being involved in the Honors program at my university. I love to spend time running or hiking in the foothills.

Why I am a Mormon

I haven't always been a member of the LDS church. I was baptized in April 2016, and I can honestly tell you it was the best decision I have ever made. I studied the Bible with a different faith for about two years before meeting with Mormon missionaries, but it just wasn't quite what I was looking for. However, I'm grateful for that experience because it helped me to realize I have a spiritual need. I am a Mormon because while studying the Bible and Book of Mormon with the missionaries, I came to know for myself that the Book of Mormon is truly another testament of Jesus Christ. Because I know this, I also know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet called by God to restore the church on the earth today. I am a Mormon because coming to know my Savior has brought me eternal joy, peace, and comfort that I know couldn't come from any other source. It truly is the best! :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to keep God's commandments and repenting when I fall short. I go to church weekly, read my scriptures, and pray daily because these things bring me so much happiness, and bring me closer to Christ. I live my faith by loving those around me as well as loving my Heavenly Father.
