Hi I'm Alexzandria Tharp

I like the performing arts. I like to watch movies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the only girl in my family with three other brothers. I am the middle child. I have an older brother and two younger brothers that are twins. My parents got divorced but then my mom remarried to my step dad. I love my family. I love dogs. I love the performing arts. I love to cook and bake. I love to laugh and have a fun time with my family and friends. I love watching old movies and listening to music. I love reading. I want to be a high school theater teacher when I grow up.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member. My mom was a covert to the church. Both of my parents served missions for the church and they raised my brothers and I in the the church. I was grateful to grow up in a home that had the gospel. I am grateful now to serve a mission. I am so blessed to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that it is the only true church on the earth today. I have strong faith in my savior and redeemer Jesus Christ. I know that he died for us and we can return back to him one day.

How I live my faith

I was involved with religious classes in high school. I served as a ward missionary for my ward. I share my testimony with other people I meet. I share The Book of Mormon with those I meet who are non-members. I try my best to be a good influence.

Why don’t Mormons drink coffee, tea, or alcohol? What is the Mormon Church’s law of health and proper diet?

Alexzandria Tharp
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believes in the Word of Wisdom.That was a law given during the early years of the church . I t makes us possible to be healthy and protect ourselves form sin. If we chose to follow the law we will receive heath to our navel and marrow to our bones as it says in the scriptures.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

Alexzandria Tharp
A ward is a community of people of the same religious interest. They all live near each other. Then as they branch out the community becomes bigger and that becomes a stake. They are different leaders who correlate these ideas of branch, ward, and stake based on the boundaries and population of the area. Show more Show less
