Hi I'm Elise

I'm a Navy wife. I'm a mom. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Navy wife and stay at home mom to a handsome, energetic toddler. I'm currently going to school online as well. I love going on hikes, camping, reading, watching movies, and playing video games in the little spare time I have.

Why I am a Mormon

I searched for a long time for true happiness, and for something that could make me feel whole. One day a friend invited me to church, and the minute I walked in the building I knew that I had found it. I started meeting with the missionaries and was baptized just 2 months later. Now, over 5 years later, I still get that feeling when I enter a church building, and even more so in the temple. I know that this is truly Christ's church on the earth today. And, who wouldn't want the opportunity to live with their family for eternity?

How I live my faith

I think the biggest part in living anything, from the life of a college student, to life as an LDS person, is involvement. I have gotten super involved by helping teach people who have questions, are new members, or who just need a friend. I hang out with girls when they are down, and go to as many events as I can. It's very rewarding.

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

Elise
When I look around and see all the beauty of the world, there is no doubt in my mind that there is a God. There is such beauty in everything from a child smiling to the colors of the fall leaves. When the wind blows across my face, or the rain falls from the sky, I can't doubt Heavenly Father. Also, there is a peace that comes over me, especially when I'm praying, reading my scriptures, attending church, having faith based conversations and attending the Temple. That peace is the peace that Heavenly Father gives us to let us know He is there. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Elise
No, we do not worship Joseph Smith. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, just like Abraham, Isaiah, Noah, etc. He is the prophet that Heavenly Father used to restore His church on Earth in these latter days. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Elise
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is Christ's suffering in Gethsemene and on the cross to save the world from sin. No person who has sined can return to live with Heavenly Father without the Atonement. Jesus Christ suffered and died for all mankind so that they can overcome Spiritual and Physical death. Christ died for us, so that we will never suffer alone, and so that we can one day return to live with Heavenly Father for eternity. Show more Show less
