Hi I'm Alexa

I'm a photographer, a pineapple and bubble bath lover, a painter, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Starting from the beginning, I grew up in a family of 8 and was raised in a house where laughter was a staple of life and teamwork was the norm. I learned that every member of each household is unique and meant to fulfill a purpose. For years I struggled to find my hobby, but quickly fell in love with photography, which later became my job. I graduated with my high school diploma and an AA Degree in Arts and Languages. After I serve an 18 month mission for my Savior, I plan to continue studying photography (and making crazy messes with each photoshoot). But beyond photography, I love watercolor painting, spending time with my family and friends, and staying active at the gym.

Why I am a Mormon

The peace you find in this gospel is unparalleled to any other source on this earth. There is power in knowing you are a Child of God. There is power in knowing why we are here on this earth, and where we are going. There is absolute strength and comfort in knowing that because our Savior suffered for our sins and our weaknesses, we can change, we can grow, and we can become more like our Father in Heaven who created us. I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon, I have prayed to understand it, I have put my faith to the test, and I have felt the blessings that come when I live this gospel. We are the dictators of our own fate. We can wander in darkness, or we can embrace the light and live in truth. I am a Mormon because I know my Savior lives, and I know that this gospel is true, pure, and the exact same gospel the Savior taught during His time on earth. I am a Mormon because the peace I've felt from the Holy Ghost has confirmed this gospel's truthfulness.

How I live my faith

I believe that living your faith means wearing it on your sleve. "If you were on trial for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?"- John Hagee. One of the ways I've strived to live my faith has been through answering questions my peers have. There have been many times when I've been able to explain my beliefs to while respecting other faiths, but still standing firm and true in what I know and live.
