Hi I'm Elise

I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of six children and I grew up all over the United States. I got married and graduated from college. I love to sew and be creative and spend time outside. I now have three children of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I would be lost without the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I know without question that the Atonement of Jesus Christ allows us to overcome every hurt, sin, fear, trial, and even death. I am a Mormon because I know that by following the teachings of the gospel I can have peace and happiness in my life. I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father created a plan that allows us all to return to live with Him and our families for eternity, and by living the gospel I can attain that. I am a Mormon because I know that after the death of Christ, His church slowly left the earth with the death of His apostles. And for that reason God used Joseph Smith to restore the gospel to the earth, that same gospel taught by Jesus Christ himself. I am Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and the only way I know to even begin to repay Him for all He has done for me is to live my life the best way I know how.

How I live my faith

I try to live each day with the Savior in mind. I read the Bible and the Book of Mormon and try to apply the stories and teachings they contain into my own life. I have found that in the work of being a mother, I have so many opportunities to incorporate those teachings and try to love more as Jesus Christ does. I still mess up everyday, but I know I can improve! I also find so much comfort in prayer. It keeps me close to the Holy Ghost which helps guide my days.
