Hi I'm Alyssa

I am majoring in music. I'm a wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in college right now studying music education. I want to be a high school choir director. I also teach piano and love it. I was recently married in the temple to a wonderful husband! 

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a wonderful family who is active in the church. However it was still important for me to develop my own testimony of the gospel. This did not occur instantly, but I developed my testimony over time by living the gospel and praying to know if the gospel is true. I know without a doubt that it is true. It has brought so much joy into my life, and the more I strive to live righteously the more joy that I feel.

How I live my faith

I am currently the ward chorister and get to pick the hymns and lead them each week. This has been a blessing to me as I have become more familiar with the hymns we sing. I know that music is powerful and can bring the spirit. I also teach 5-6 year olds in Sunday School. They are such a blast! They certainly teach me a lot about faith as theirs is so strong! They are always a highlight for my week. It is so awesome to serve in the church. I always feel closer to the Savior as I serve others. It brings a lot of peace into my life.

What is the Relief Society?

Relief Society is an organization for the women of the church. The title indicates the function of this organization. It exists to provide relief, both temporal and spiritual. It is a sisterhood which strives to strengthen its members and others in the ward and community. Its motto is "Charity Never Faileth". As I have participated in this wonderful organization I have gained a greater understanding of my own worth and divine nature. I have had many opportunities to serve and to help strengthen others, and to be strengthened by my sisters in the Relief Society. Show more Show less
