Hi I'm Elise Vander Does

I'm a Broadway Baby, I'm a missionary and I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I am from Colorado and grew up with my Twin sister, 2 older brothers, and a loving Mother and Father. I love my family. They mean the World to me! I want to one day have a family of my own who will bring me as much joy as my family has for me. I also love to sing, dance and act! I major in Musical Theatre at Weber State University and that is my passion. I love Performing on stage. It is such a thrill. I would love to be on Broadway one day. I say I am a Broadway baby because that has been my dream since I was a little one!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life because my Parents introduced me into it, and I love it! I have grown on my own to really find out for myself that it is TRUE! This gospel has made my life the Greatest and made me so Happy! I love serving a mission and sharing the Joy I feel when I go to Church and try to keep all of God's commandments. There was a time in my life where I had to make my own decisions while I was away from home. I definately made plenty of mistakes. But, I wouldn't be here, where I am today without making those mistakes. I came to find out that doing the right things like praying, reading my scriptures daily, and going to Church helped me stay on the right pathway for my life. When I wasn't doing those things, I wen't back into those same mistakes I had made before and had deep sorrow. However; Jesus Christ lifted me up again! That is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am a Representative of Jesus Christ right now and serving a mission in the Las Vegas, Nevada Mission! I absolutely Live my faith everyday of my life. We promised when we were baptized, that we would take upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ and to live our lives as he did. By serving others, loving others, comforting others, blessing others, and most importantly by standing as witnesses of God at all times and in all things and in all places. As I serve a mission, I do just that. I love serving the people and my Savior Jesus Christ!
