Hi I'm Elizabeth

I grew up in Orem, Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a newly married college student. My selected major is in Early Childhood Education. I love children and my family is the most important thing in my life. When I become a mom, I plan on being a stay-at-home mom because that is extremely important to me. I enjoy spending time outdoors and with friends and family. Activities I enjoy include snowmobiling, cooking, running, hiking, arts and crafts, reading, ballroom dancing, camping, and having Nerf gun / pillow "fights" with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but that's not why I've chosen to continue in this religion. When I was young, I remember kneeling in prayer. After I closed the prayer in the Savior's name, instead of jumping into bed like I normally did, I stayed on my knees and listened. I cannot remember the content of my prayer, but I do remember the answer I received. I was filled with a warmth, and felt like Heaven surrounded me. I felt like Heaven had entered my room, and I felt my Heavenly Father's complete love for me fill me. Since that day, I have studied the scriptures consistently, and have felt a continual witness of their truth. I also continue to pray, and am able to feel The Spirit as I pray with sincerity and real intent. The spirit I receive from living my life in accordance to gospel doctrine and principles is such that I know that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I serve as a Sunbeam teacher (I teach the 3-4 year-olds) with my husband, and help visit other women in my ward to teach them and serve them in any way I can through the Visiting Teaching program. I also sing in the ward choir.
