Hi I'm Lil!

I'm a missionary, a sorority girl, a UTES fan, I love music, dancing, photography/videography, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My real name is Elizabeth, but most people call me Lil. I am a missionary serving in the Massecticut, Bosford Mission (Connecticut and Massachusetts Mission combined) and I am loving every minute of it. Before my mission, I was going to college where I was majoring in Health Promotion & Education and Photography and minoring in Coaching...GO UTES!! I am a member of the Delta Gamma Sorority and I love it with all my heart. I worked as a photographer/videographer where I lived my dream job. I have danced and played tennis my whole life and love to have competition in everything I do. I like to work hard and give my best while having a blast. I am the seventh of eight children and I consider my family my best friends. Life couldn't get better, and I couldn't be happier!

Why I am a Mormon

What a good question. A friend of mine said, "Well, if you don't know why you are a Mormon yet, you better figure it out!" That is a funny way of answering this question, but it is true! Every person has to figure out what they truly believe, and I have done just that. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, because it makes me truly happy. Not just temporary happiness, but eternal happiness. I have seen how the gospel brings happiness into people's lives and that right there is what Heavenly Father wants us to have on this earth. I have been blessed to be a member my entire life where my parents were incredible examples to me of what a disciple of Christ should be. I also had many brothers and sisters who showed that same example. I was able to see in my family how the gospel gives us a purpose and brings us true happiness. I have found that this gospel is true through living it in my life. There were times in my life where I didn't live the gospel principles to the best of my ability, and I noticed that I was not as happy. The Spirit was not in my life and I felt empty. So, by striving to be like my Savior Jesus Christ, and applying His Atonement in my life, I was able to have that true happiness back in my life. I have been able to experience the love that Heavenly Father has for me by continually changing to be more like Him.

How I live my faith

Right now I am currently serving a mission and I live my faith 24/7. Serving a mission has brought me more happiness than I could have ever imagined, because I am able to share that happiness with others. One of the reasons I came out on a mission was to share the blessings I have had in my life with people who haven't had the chance to receive them yet. I find no greater JOY than seeing people find that happiness through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. My companion and I go around teaching anyone who will listen about the blessings of this gospel. I live my faith by showing others how they can experience JOY in this life, and find peace through our Savior, Jesus Christ.
