About Dina Alexander, M.S.
Best Selling Author
Dina Alexander is the founder and CEO of Educate and Empower Kids, an organization dedicated to strengthening families by teaching digital citizenship, media literacy, and healthy sexuality education—including education about the dangers of online porn.
In 2018, President Russell M. Nelson said, “In coming days, it will not be possible to survive spiritually without the guiding, directing, comforting, and constant influence of the Holy Ghost…. If we are to have any hope of sifting through the myriad of voices and the philosophies of men that attack truth, we must learn to receive revelation.” With these words, Dina knew she needed to do something to help her own children and other kids understand the great potential they have to receive and understand personal revelation. After much prayer and contemplation, This is the Spirit of Revelation began to take shape.
Prior to writing this, her first Latter-day Saint children’s book, Dina wrote Petra’s Power to See: A Media Literacy Adventure and Noah’s New Phone: A Story About Using Technology for Good, and co-wrote the Messages About Me: A Journey to Healthy Body Image books for boys and girls.
For adults, she and her team created How to Talk to Your Kids About Pornography, 30 Days to a Stronger Child, and 30 Days of Sex Talks: Empowering Your Child with a Knowledge of Sexual Intimacy for Kids Ages 3–7, 8–11, and 12+.
She received her master’s degree in recreation therapy from the University of Utah and her bachelors from Brigham Young University. Dina has taught in various capacities for over twenty years, including marriage enhancement, art for small children, and group fitness. She has also worked with teenage girls in a residential treatment setting, adults with drug addictions, and special-needs children. She and her family live in the Rio Rancho Stake in New Mexico.
