Hi I'm Elizabeth

I'm a Mormon. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother. I enjoy skiing and white water rafting.

About Me

I have six children and six grandchildren. I love the outdoors. I enjoy family history and have researched many generations in my family. I feel a love for my ancestors and have enjoyed learning more about them. I love going out with my husband or getting together with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was blessed to never have doubted it's truth. It always felt right to me. I had many non member friends growing up and watched them make bad choices and knew that wasn't for me. I always wanted a temple marriage and an eternal family. I feel these choices have kept me closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Even though my life has not been easy, I feel happier and at peace when I choose to live the priniciples of the gospel. I have been given opportunities to serve that have helped me grow and given me the desire to help other more. When I have needed help in my life, the members of the church have been there for me. I am so grateful to have the scriptures to read and learn more about the gospel. I am thankful for a Heavenly Father that I know hears and answers my prayers.

How I live my faith

I have been given the opportunity to supervise the Family History Center at our church. There are 35 people that come every week to help anyone who is interested in learning about their ancestry. I have worked on my family history for over 10 years and it has brought great joy into my life. I feel blessed to have been given this chance to learn and to grow in knowlege. I feel greatly blessed to be able to go to the Temple on a regular basis and feel the spirit there.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

I always try to be aware of what is going on in my neighborhood. I look for people around me as I run errands to see if someone may need a helping hand. Everyone has a bad day now and then, and I hope that I can lift them and let them know that I care about all people, not just Mormons. Show more Show less
