Hi I'm Liz

I'm a life-long learner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife to a special ed teacher, and a mother of 4 children: 3 boys and 1 girl. I am a retired photographer and entrepreneur. I am a believer in alternative medicine, and don't immunize my kiddos. I am an avid reader, I especially love Annie Dillard and fantasy novels. I am a libertarian and am very politically active. I'm currently finishing my bachelors degree in psychology. I have a son with Tourette's Syndrome and SPD.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. This Father loves us and knows us personally. He wants what is best for us. I do not believe that a Being such as this would leave His children on this earth without giving them a way to find their way and to find what is true. I believe He wants us to ask questions, and will guide us to find answers. I know that we are all inherently good beings and that this life has a purpose. Through the gospel of Jesus Christ, I have found my purpose. It helps me to strive to be my best, as a daughter, wife, and mother. It helps me to pick myself up when I've made a mistake and try again. I also know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ, I will be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be better each day. Many days I don't quite make it, but I know that tomorrow I have another chance. I try to be a good example to my children and teach them that their lives have purpose. At church, I am the secretary to the children's organization called "Primary", so I'm pretty busy. I love that the church is run by everyone. You learn to work together and stretch yourself. I have taught Sunday school, worked with youth, worked with children, been a missionary...and I learned something about myself with each assignment.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

The purpose of this life is to return to live with our Heavenly Father, and to learn. the experiences we gain here help to create who we are. Hardships and trials as well as joys and peaceful times help us to learn who we are, help to stretch us and make us more like our Heavenly Father, who is perfect. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Family is the basic building block of society. More importantly, families are the basic building block of heaven. God is our Heavenly Father, and through the gospel of Jesus Christ, we can be with our families through eternity. Show more Show less
