Hi I'm Liz B

I'm a blogger. I'm a stay-at-home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I’m Liz B and I’m a mother. Before I was a mother, I majored in English with a minor in chemistry. My other interests include cooking, knitting, reading (particularly fantasy and creative non-fiction), writing, gardening, theology, couponing, video games, and math. Someday when I don’t have little ones at home, I’d like to do an MFA in religious creative non-fiction and write a great masterpiece on what it’s like to be a Mormon geek mom, which no one would read but which I would enjoy immensely. I live near Seattle, Washington, with my husband and our two young children.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a teenager, I started reading the Book of Mormon for ten minutes every day. I can't even remember the verses I was reading when it happened, but one day I just felt the love of my Savior and my Father in Heaven so strongly. I know that no matter what else happens, I cannot deny the reality of their existence and of their love for me. My testimony of their love is a stabilizing force in my life. It grounds and centers me when I feel like things are flying out of control. I know that they believe in me and will help me in everything I do.

How I live my faith

As a young mother, the most important way my husband and I live our faith is by trying to raise our children unto the Lord. I try to see my children as the Savior would and work to increase my patience and kindness towards them. (You need all the patience you can get with toddlers.) I also serve in our church by planning activities that educate and strengthen friendships among the women in our congregation. My husband and I also sing in the ward choir.
