Hi I'm Liz

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 22-year-old girl loving life, and going to college. I love school, reading, writing, crocheting, baking, hanging out with my friends and roommates, and writing to my friends who are currently serving missions for the LDS church. I have 2 younger brothers and a younger sister. I'm studying English and hope to someday work as a youth services librarian or an editor.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the church! There are always things that I find that enhance my life and make me a happier person. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ care about me and want me to be happy. The Book of Mormon has changed my life so much. I know that the principles in it are true and if we follow them, we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. I'm grateful that I have the church because it has given me direction. Without it, I don't know where I would be going.

How I live my faith

Right now, I'm away at school, so living my faith is a little bit harder since I don't have my parents there to help me judge right and wrong. The great thing is, being away from school really helps to strengthen my faith. I have to rely more on Heavenly Father to find answers instead of just turning to my parents. I have to decide what standards I want to live by, rather than just following the rules instituted in my home. I love serving the people around me, and I think that is a big part of the LDS faith. I try to live in a way that represents my Savior in a positive light.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Liz
God is in everything that I see. I love to see his hand in my day to day life. God is in the beautiful flowers he gives us; the rainbow; the associations we have with our friends; good music, art, or literature. God is inspiration to everything that is good. When my prayers are answered, I know that God lives and cares about me. When I talk to an innocent child, I know that God lives. God is in everything. Show more Show less

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Liz
Modesty and chastity are related, although it may be hard to see sometimes. When we are modest, we promote clean thoughts and actions in those around us and ourselves. Modesty shows respect for ourselves and others. When we show respect for our bodies, we show others around us that chastity is important to us. When parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior, chastity is encouraged. Modesty is important in the world we live in, and when we live modestly, we not only show those around us that we respect ourselves, we show them that we respect them too. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Liz
No. Since all people are God's children, Mormons believe in helping everyone. Show more Show less
