Hi I'm Eli

I love my family, I like video games, I computer program, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My family moves a lot, but finally settled down in North Carolina. I was homeschooled, and I am really close to my family. My favorite school subjects are mathematics and science. I like listening to all types of music and I also play piano. I also like puzzles and mazes. I love playing video games. When I was fourteen years old, I wanted to make video games so I started learning computer programming. Now, I program video games and computer programs. I took two years of community college before serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and baptized when I was 8 years old. I was taught the gospel of Jesus Christ and strive to live by its teachings. There was a time that I felt doubtful about the church. I constantly prayed to God, who is our Heavenly Father, and I received answers to my prayers. I love reading and studying the Book of Mormon because it is easy to understand and contains many great stories and teachings. I once prayed to know if the book is true and I got the feeling that it is true. I know deep in my heart that the book is true. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I am so thankful for the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life.

How I live my faith

I pray and study the scriptures daily and attend church every week. I do these things to strengthen my faith and focus on spiritual things, especially when life is hard. I always rely on the Lord to help me in times of difficulty. I sometimes play the piano for the church and for others. I know that the gospel helps everyone just as it helps me.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ by learning about Him. Study the scriptures and go to church. We can also increase our faith by obeying God's commandments and praying. Show more Show less
