Hi I'm Alexandria

I'm a wife of a wonderful husband, a mother of two sweet little boys, love to read and write, and enjoy trying new recipes.

About Me

I married my wonderful husband in 2012. Our sons were born in 2014 and 2016. I'm Californian born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley. I'm the oldest child of five and married into a family where my husband is one of eight. Family is something that’s important to me, even with all it’s ups and downs. I love journaling and documenting life through pictures. I enjoy traveling and have been able to experience Switzerland, Mexico and Hawaii and many of the western states.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a child, grandchild and great-grandchild of Mormons. I grew up with it. In my teen years, I naturally tried to discover for myself if this was something I believed in or if I believed in it because of my parents. However, through application of what the gospel teaches, I gained an unshakeable testimony of my own. It came slowly, there wasn't one "ah ha" moment. But the gospel feels true and touches something, giving me peace and comfort like nothing else does. I've been a member for all of my life, but I still learn new things every day. It all makes sense.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live the principles and commandments the Savior taught us. Specifically, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" (Matthew 22:37-40). I try to serve the people around me. There are some great people doing great things serving a great number of individuals. It's wonderful, but I honestly try to uplift and serve those within my sphere of influence first. Starting with my husband, my children, my siblings, my parents, my friends and my neighbors. They might not be big, newsworthy events, but they're meaningful to me and to those around me. Sometimes the simple act of picking up an extra gallon of milk for a mother who can't get to the store immediately shows that you care enough to think of them in small moments. The Savior served individually. That's what I try to do. and something I know I can do.
