Hi I'm Dorothy Elizabeth

I'm a Mormon. I grew in a rural town in Utah County, Utah. Now it's not so rural.

About Me

I am a non traditional student at a local university at the age of 50+ returning to get my BA or BFA in Art and Visual Communication. With an emphasis on graphic design and digital media. I am an avid David Archuleta fan. He is also a Mormon and has a very good life style, and inspires others. I am a visual artist hoping to make a dent in the art world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS church. BUT I drifted away - All the way away. After about 11 years living outside of the church membership, I returned. I now love and believe the gospel and live it more fully than before I left. This will have more story later as to the process to return. It is not easy but, but it is worth it.

How I live my faith

I attend my meetings, pray daily, treat others kindly as I would want to be treated. I have more non LDS friends than LDS friends and that says something because I live in the MECCA of Mormondom. The city of Orem is a medium sized town in Utah or about 100,000 well that is for two semesters of the year, when BYU and UVU are in session I follow the teachings of our prophet Thomas S. Monson, and try to make time to visit the Temple.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Dorothy Elizabeth
God has called prophets to lead His Church in our day, just as He did anciently. The current prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He is assisted by two counselors—Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uctdorf. Together, they make up the First Presidency of the Church (much like Peter, James, and John after Christ’s death). All members of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are apostles and prophets. The current Apostles are: Boyd K. Packer L. Tom Perry Russell M. Nelson Dallin H. Oaks M. Russell Ballard Richard G. Scott Robert D. Hales Jeffrey R. Holland David A. Bednar Quentin L. Cook D. Todd Christofferson Neil L. Andersen Show more Show less
