Hi I'm Ella

I live in California. I work with special needs kids. I am an actress and singer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I started off in college as a theater education major and when some serious injury accrued, I put that on hold and moved back home with my family. Now I am working as classroom aide with emotionally disturbed kids for a non-profit company. Recently I rediscovered my love for theater and preforming and am trying to get involved in various local theater companies.

Why I am a Mormon

 Everyone has ups and downs in their lives. I have had my fair share of downs. The gospel has helped me realize that even when things are their darkest, I am never alone. My Father in Heaven wants me to be happy and He has put a plan in place to be happy. He has also given me the gift of free agency and I can choose to partake in that plan. Sometimes it is hard to follow, but there are always ways to get back on that path through repentance. There are also people in the church who can help guide you. Transversely, I also have the opportunity to help others. We are a church that helps each other and we do so out of love and compassion without any monetary increase. The people combined with the gospel of love and repentance offer me a place to grow and spiritually, emotionally, and physically.

How I live my faith

 I am involved in leadership and teaching. I participate in a Young Single Adult or YSA Branch. I have been a gospel teacher and have been a leader for the other females in our Branch. Currently I am the historian and I journal the events of our Branch.

What is the Law of Chastity?

 It is a guideline for the members of our church to follow. It entails abstinence and fidelity as well as abstaining from pornography and like minded material. The reason we choose to follow this all leads back to happiness. Every action and choice has a consequence, whether negative or positive. When sex is brought in outside of the commitment of marriage, things get complicated. Our Father in Heaven knows that a lot of emotion goes behind those acts and that being committed completely to one another makes those consequences easier to deal with. Show more Show less
