Alicia was born and raised in Alpine, UT; right in the heart of Mormonism. She was an extremely devoted Mormon growing up and had a strong testimony of the LDS Church. In high school, she met her husband-to-be, Micah Wilder. When Micah went on his two-year mission, Alicia went to BYU to study. It was there, that Micah began to share the Gospel with Alicia and invited her to read the New Testament. She came to a saving faith in Jesus Christ while a student at BYU.
