Hi I'm Liz!
I'm an English teacher who also coaches swimming and loves her job! I am also a self-taught photographer who loves playing the piano and is learning to play the guitar.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because through out the many times I have felt alone, or scared, or hurt, the gospel of Jesus Christ has been my one sure foundation. The principles and teachings of the Church are something that I know to be true. I know God lives and that He loves us. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and loves us as well. He is our Savior and Redeemer. I know the Church is true and was restored in its fullness to the earth by the prophet Joseph Smith. I know Thomas S. Monson to be a true prophet of God. I love this gospel and am grateful for the many blessings that have come from living it to the best of my abilities.
Which of the Savior’s teachings have influenced you in your life?
One of the Savior's teachings that has influenced me is that of loving my neighbor as I love myself. The Lord loves everyone, and everyone is deserving of His love. If He loves everyone, then I need to strive to love everyone as well.
How I live my faith
My faith is a large portion of my life. It's a part of who I am, and I wouldn't change that for anything. I'm not perfect by any means, but everyday I strive to be the best I can be.
