Hi I'm Liz

I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Conservative quoting, marriage defending, family promoting, freedom loving, homeschool teaching, camera toting, book devouring, blog blogging, chocolate hoarding, Jesus following, wife and mom.  

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I was born in the Church, meaning my parents were members when I made my debut into this lovely world. But I think I gained my own true testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ during my teenage years. (I know, religion doesn't seem to be the typical teenage thing to embrace these days, right?). :D My own personal conversion (the point at which I stopped leaning so heavily on my parents' testimonies) came as a result of reading the Book of Mormon and following the advice of Moroni found in the book of Moroni, Chapter 10, verses 4-5: "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." "And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." Try it. It really works!

How I live my faith

I get to teach the 17 and 18 year old kids in Sunday School each week. I LOVE this calling. These youth are inspiring and entertaining. I love the level of preparation required to teach this age as I can't just squeak by on the fly. Delving into the scriptures like this strengthens my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We truly are edifying one another each week.  

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

For me, as a mom, the biggest blessing I receive from reading the scriptures daily is an added measure of patience and inspiration in teaching and caring for my children. I find myself filled with more love and less frustration. What mom wouldn't want that?! Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

It is a law that protects our virtue and purity. We save ourselves for eternal marriage and then treat that marriage as the precious gift that it is, respecting and honoring our spouses by living with complete fidelity. My husband is my best friend and confidante. Show more Show less

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Short answer we don't want to! More to the point, though, we simply don't need to. We have all the blessings of the priesthood at our disposal through our wonderful men. We women have big jobs of our own to take care of and happily let the men magnify their callings within the priesthood. Women of the Church serve in the Relief Society, Primary, and Young Women auxiliaries. We tap into our feminine, nurturing natures and serve those in need within our homes, wards, and communities.  We focus our intuition and innate feminine talents of tenderness and mercy on the children and women within our sphere of influence while at the same time acting as tempering and refining agents for the men in our lives. We are powerful, absolutely necessary, and content in that knowledge. Show more Show less
