Hi I'm Liz

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the only LDS member in my family and came to the faith back in 2010. I'm a psychologist and educator, an avid reader, runner, dog-lover, and mental health advocate.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I was not born into a Mormon family. I believe in the teachings of the church, in Heavenly Father's plan for all of his children on earth, Joseph Smith's teachings, and in the restoration of the gospel in these latter days.

How I live my faith

My faith is central to my life. I participate in service projects at my ward, particularly with the Relief Society (the women's organization in the Mormon church, which focuses on charity) and I'm hoping that my Bishop will be inspired to provide me with a calling within the ward where I can utilize my skills to help my fellow ward members and members of the community. I pray to the Heavenly Father every day and my faith is my strength and rock in difficult times.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

If you're interested in joining the Church, please meet with the missionaries in your local area. They will be able to answer your questions about the church and to being to give you lessons in preparation for your joining. Please attend worship services at your local ward. Everyone is friendly and gladly welcomes visitors, so don't be afraid to be new! If you decide you wish to be baptized into the church, the missionaries will guide you in the necessary lessons and preparation. You will then be baptized (by full immersion) and confirmed as a member in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You can look up your local ward and request a visit from the missionaries by using the links on Mormon.org. Show more Show less
