Hi I'm Liz

I'm a Mormon, a wife, and a chemical engineer.

About Me

I am a chemical engineer. I am in the process of getting my masters, and I do research in combustion modeling. That basically means that I learn about fire and how it works. I guess I grew this love for fire as a little girl. My family always went camping together, and who doesn’t love gathering around a campfire?! Well, also from those experiences I have learned to love camping, backpacking, mountains, and being in nature. I have been married almost two years and have been teaching my husband to love the whole camping experience. He is a champ, and goes along with me on all my excursions. I’m lucky to be married to such a great guy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because the teachings of this church answer the questions I have about my life and make my life feel purposeful. I didn’t always feel like I had answers. Coming from a family with mixed views on religion, I was a little confused about what I believed. I wanted God to be there, and for life to have a more significant meaning. I followed the example of my mother and started to pray. I went to church with her and read the Book of Mormon. I liked how I felt when I was participating in these activities. As I learned more, I found specific answers to questions I had in my life. Now I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus are there for me. They have a plan to help us grow and learn. I know that I have a purpose, and that I can fulfill it. I want to return to be with my Heavenly Father, and be with my husband forever.

How I live my faith

I attend church meetings with my husband on Sunday and read scriptures daily. I also pray with my husband and on my own each morning and night. This has helped me overcome difficult time and has helped my husband and I know how to direct our lives. My husband and I try to set goals to be better neighbors, students, coworkers, and citizens. With the power of prayer it is easier to reach these goals.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon, like the bible, is a book of scripture testifying of the importance and divinity of Jesus Christ. It was received by prophets living in the Americas, just like the Bible was received by prophets and apostles near Israel. It is another witness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and provides clarity to the plan Heavenly Father has for us. Show more Show less
