Hi I'm Alexander Smith

I'm a Football State Champion, I'm from Idaho, I love my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am into all kinds of sports, like football, baseball, basketball, and soccer. I got to play football and baseballin high school, at Skyline High. I really enjoy fishing and being outdoors in general. I love music! I am currently serving a mission in the California Ventura Mission from July 2017- July 2019. I will go to college at Utah Valley University when I return home from my mission. I plan on studying psychology, and sociology in order to make my way into law enforcement. I want to end up being a detective. I am the third of four children, two older brothers and one younger sister.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon, because I grew up in the church. I was raised by my parents into the church so its what I thought we always did. I didn't really have a sincere testimony of the Gospel because I took it for granted. It wasn't until high school that I genuinely wanted to find out if what I had been doing my whole life was actually true so I put in the work to find out, by reading the Book of Mormon and praying to God to know if it is true. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because it is Christ's original church that was restored in our day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church each week and always remembering Christ our Savior. I read my scriptures in order to more fully understand what God would have us do. I try to be the best person I can to others, always showing kindness and love. I pray to god for guidance and counsel each day, I love serving all of the children of God as a missionary and representative of Jesus Christ.
