 Liz: Mormon.

Hi I'm Liz

About Me

I am a mother of five children, four living and fourteen grandchildren! I have been a member of the church my entire life. I have lived in UT., PA., and IN. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and know that it is true. My favorite place to be is in the temples that are all over the world. In the temples of the Lord, I better understand and know of who I am and who I will be for all eternity. I love to sing, play the piano, travel and read. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my grandparents traveled from many places in Europe to come to Utah. They had joined the church and wanted to be with the saints and be able to have freedom of religion. I believe the teachings of the church and their faithfulness, testimonies and sacrifices helped build my faith.  I have had to build my own testimony of the church and it has come through the years of serving, reading the scriptures, going to church meetings, partaking of the sacrament, attending the temple and miracle that have happened in my life.

Personal Stories

What has helped develop greater harmony in your home?

When our children were growing up the consistency of Family Home Evening, scripture reading, family prayer, and attending church together brought a great unity to each of us. In the mornings, after reading the scriptures we would kneel, hold hands and have our family prayer. As parents we thought that holding hands would create a love and happiness between our children. Later after they had married we discovered that you can squeeze the hand of someone until pain exists and that happened many mornings. They now live all over the USA and they have that deep love and unity with each other. I love to see the ways that they serve each other across the miles and how important they are to each other.

What are you doing to help strengthen your family and make it successful?

Having very little money, while my husband worked and attended college and I was at home raising our children we wanted to come up with something we could have as a Christmas tradition that would replace the giving of costly gifts. We began the tradition of writing a letter to each family member, for our gifts to each other. It went from writing what they wanted to say to helping them spell to each of them creating their own letters. In these letters each person was to focus on the good things about the other person, their spiritual gifts and the love they had for the other member. The letters were wrapped in the most beautiful paper and placed under the tree. It was the most exciting time of the Christmas day when we opened the box and began to read our letters. Our home was filled with love, tears and joy and gratefulness for our Savior's birth. Now that we are all of different income levels and thousands of miles apart, these letters are even more important. They are full of testimonies of certain aspects of our religion and of the important areas of this mortal life. They have become our treasured gifts. I know that it was the whisperings of the Holy Ghost that gave us this idea and that it is part of what makes our family great!

How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps me know where my first son is at. He was stillborn and this loss has been a great struggle for me to understand. Knowing that I will be with him again and that he is with our Heavenly Father, helps me to strive to be a better person. I do not want to have lost that wonderful opportunity by my choosing not to do the things that I need to, to be with him as one eternal family. Each member of our family has come to love him, pray for him and it has increased their desire to be together forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to live by the teachings of the gospel, taught to us by modern day prophets and the scriptures. I am not perfect, for that is not possible in this earthly life. If I do my very best then the Atonement of Jesus Christ will make up the difference and I will become perfect.   I have served in many callings in the church, pay our tithing and fast offerings and love to serve others. Currently, I am a Visiting Teaching Supervisor and love the relationship I have with the sisters who report their efforts with the sisters they are assigned to visit. Going to the temple, at least weekly is the highlight of my life. I LOVE TO BE IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, JESUS CHRIST.
