Hi I'm Elana
I'm a stay at home mom and a Mormon.
I am a mother of 5 beautiful children. I love to read and to be in the kitchen. I went to some college and ended up becoming a Medical Assistant. Although, I have not worked in 13+years. Once my first child came it was so hard to leave him with anyone else. I love being a stay at home mom! I think I have the best job on earth. I enjoy scrap booking and making and decorating cakes.
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up in the church and at the age of 14 decided i wanted to go to another church. I was searching for something. I was just not sure what it was. When I met my husband he offered me a Book of Mormon and challenged me to read it and pray about it. I was very unhappy at this time in my life. The gospel gives me joy. I can honestly say that it makes my heart swell. My husband saved me that day when he offered me a book i already had at home. I know this church is on the earth for a reason. It saved my life. I am a Mormon because that is who i really am inside.
How I live my faith
I am currently teaching Sunday school for the youth. As a family we say our prayers. I find it helps to keep harmony in the house. We also like to do lots of activities together as a family. For me personally it helps me to feel more connected to God if i am saying my prayers and talking to him regularly. I enjoy studying and reading my scriptures. We make sure to go to every potluck and extra activity that may be going on. The people in my ward are my family!
