Hi I'm Eliza

I smile a lot, I love to do new things, I served a mission in California, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just got back from my mission and it was the best experience of my life. I am about to go back to college in Utah. I love to sing, bake, and go on any type of adventure!  

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. My parents brought me to church throughout my whole life, and I grew to love it. I don't think they forced me to come or forced me to live a certain way, but I chose to do so. I come to church and obey God's commandments because it brings me blessings. 

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Jesus Christ's example. I study His words every day, I pray daily, and I go to church every Sunday. For a year and a half I was a full time missionary for the LDS church, which means I taught people about Jesus Christ all day every day. In my daily decisions I think to myself, what would God want me to do? Who does He want me to become? This relationship with God is central in my life. 

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Tons of blessings! I've come to appreciate the gift of the Holy Ghost as my very personal connection with God. I think it mostly helps me make important or difficult decisions. The Holy Ghost gives me feelings or thoughts and tells me how God feels about that decision. The scriptures and prophets can give us commandments and general counsel about our lives, but the gift of the Holy Ghost can give me personal and specific counsel directly from God to me.  Show more Show less
