Hi I'm Alexa Tenney

I grew up in Texas. I was homeschooled. I play college rugby. I am serving a mission in Sacramento CA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of five kids and have a cat and a dog who are the coolest. My family are my best friends and one reason I love the gospel so much is because it makes it possible for me to spend forever with them. I enjoy reading, drawing, playing the guitar, music, running, rugby, and travel. I have been to a couple different countries and I hope to continue to explore the world and meet more interesting people. I love making people laugh and some of my favorite ways to do that are telling jokes, making strange faces, and sharing my awesome/unique dance moves.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it fills my heart with joy. I have my own struggles in life just like anyone else and I have found that the best way to make it through is to stick close to God. Staying close to Him, living the gospel of Jesus Christ, continuing on the path that He has set out before us, doesn't necessarily make all our troubles go away, but it makes them worth it. I have learned to trust and love my Savior and that fills me with a joy that I could never find anywhere else.

How I live my faith

One way I try to live my faith is by being kind to anyone I meet. Not only is everyone fighting their own battle that I may not know about, but they are also children of God! They are my brothers and sisters. I do my best to reach out to my sisters within my reach at church by visiting with them and asking about their lives. I also try to live my faith by sharing what I believe with my family during family home evening or after our family prayers.
