Hi I'm Elise, "wife, mom, and student."

I am a stay at home wife and mom. I love my life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student working on a degree in psychology. My husband and I had our first child this year, a boy. I enjoy reading all sorts of material. My husband and I like to play games and travel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents that were already members of this church. There came a time though, when I had to decide for myself if I to would continue to be a member of this church. I read the Book of Mormon another testament of Jesus Christ I prayed to know if that book was true and if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints the Mormon Church was true. I felt the Holy Ghost so strongly that night telling me that this church was true, and that the Book of Mormon was the word of God, I could not then nor will I ever deny it.

How I live my faith

I work with the children from 3-11 yrs old at church. We teach them lessons about our Savior and Heavenly Fathers Plan for us. We discuss lessons taught in the scriptures with them. I also have a few women I visit every month. I check in on them periodically to see if they need anything so I can help out or bring it to the attention of church leaders.  

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Elise, "wife, mom, and student."
My husband and I were both looking for someone with the same beliefs and values to marry. We both have the same goals like raising a good family and returning to live with our Heavenly Father, so large decisions are made easier. It then becomes not what I want or what he wants but what the Lord wants. Our faith in Jesus Christ and the teachings of the gospel not only make our marriage stronger and our life simpler but it also keeps us heading the same direction. We have a wonderful marriage full of love and life, and it is because we try to make sure God comes first in all we do. Show more Show less
