Hello everyone! I'm Alex. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a current student working on a Bachelors in Biology and would like to go to either a professional school or medical school and become a doctor. I am a big family person and family is very important to me. I would like to have a large family and have a ranch where my family and I could raise horses and other farm critters. I just recently discovered the gospel and enjoy it very much. I love everything about the gospel and know that Jesus Christ lives. The gospel has given me strength and has already blessed me in so many ways. I really look forward in becoming more active in the church. Hopefully I will match someone's interest and we can click. I guess there is only one way to find out and talk :). Hope to talk to you soon!
So here is my conversion story... it all started with my friend Sarah, who, after class one day, started to talk to me about the church. I told her I was not apart of any church because I did not like the fact that the bible was old and seemed outdated and she mentioned that the church (LDS) had a more current book that was of the word of God and I seemed interested. After that we didn't really talk much more about it. She tried to ask me to go to church with her, but the church was having the general conference so I stayed home and watched it. I almost didn't watch it, but was very glad I did. Then after this I didn't really think about it until Aubrey and I were sitting there in office hours and saw Sarah. They knew each other and I was shocked that they did. They started talking about church again and said I should go with them. I hesitated and the conversation dropped. Then one day after class Aubrey said that they had devotional and that I should go. I almost said no and I was glad I didn't. I entered the church with a broken spirit and a broken heart and sat down. I didn't really feel comfortable and everyone seemed to be friendly to each other, but I wasn't approached. I was scared and wanted to leave, but Aubrey came over so I felt better. The moment the first person went up to bear their testimony I felt the spirit and was overwhelmed by it. I was so happy the rest of the day. Later on me and Aubrey were texting and I was scared to go to church on Sunday, I tried to talk myself out of it because I didn't have a white shirt and felt that I would be out of place, but nonetheless I went and bought a white shirt and decided to go. Once I got into the church I felt the spirit and that is when I was told the church was true and that all I had to do was start the lessons so I ran into the Elders after church and set up my first lesson. I have had doubts and lost some faith in the first couple of meetings, but I was reassured that if I continued I would be blessed. I now know without a doubt the church is true as I prayed and asked that my doubts would go away. I am so happy with my choice of the LDS church and know that my faith continues to grow and that my trials grow as well, but as long as I have that faith, Heavenly Father will be there to guide me.
