Hi I'm Liz

I'm a country girl. I work at a Funeral Home. I am a College Student. I am a Returned Missionary. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a country girl through and through. I am from a small town in Montana and I have lived on a potato farm for most of my life. I don't really know anything different than life in the country. I have spent many hours sitting on the seat of a tractor, walking through fields, cleaning equipment, and taking care of animals. Although I am a country girl, my mom has taught me to be a homemaker. I like to sew and to cook. I love children, and family life. Crafts are always fun to do, and I love teaching others how to make things. I grew up in a family of 6 kids (3 girls and 3 boys), but when I was about 14 or so our family adopted a little girl. Our lives have changed forever. Volleyball is one of my passions. I love learning, especially about how the body works. I think the human body is a beautiful thing. I love being around people. I love doing things for other people. My life revolves around those I know and love. I love helping people around me and that is what I hope to do with my life. One way that I am doing that is by serving a mission in the Little Rock, Arkansas area and teaching what I believe and how it can bless the lives of others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have always gone to church. I know pretty much most of the standard answers that teachers at church ask. I always knew how to answer the questions because I was taught what those answers were. What I lacked was the conviction though. I didn't always know that those things I was saying were true. I just knew that those were the answers that the teacher wanted. I leaned on the beliefs and knowledge that my parents had and that my teachers had and never really understood that I would have to figure it out on my own one day. It wasn't until I moved away from home and went to college that I realized how much the gospel of Jesus Christ meant to me. I learned that I did have my own testimony and that those answers that I had given for years really were true. I couldn't have learned this for myself if I had not read my scriptures, said my prayers, or gone to church. There is no way. It was through these things that I truly came to know that god loved me. That he cared about me and that he wanted to help me. I came to know that Jesus Christ was my savior and that he could heal me from any pain or sorrow that I felt. He became my best friend. When I felt alone and weak, he became my strength. I see light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope for each and every one of us, no matter if you have been raised Mormon, Catholic, Baptist or Non-Denominational Christian. God loves each and every one of us, and he wants us to catch the vision. That vision is in the Book of Mormon. It lays out an eternal plan that God has for us. That Vision also comes from a living prophet. Thomas S. Monson is the Lord's prophet on the Earth today and I honestly don't know how I would make it through this life without the guidance and counsel from a living prophet.

How I live my faith

It is because of the knowledge I have come to obtain that I have decided to share it with those around me. I have decided to dedicate 18 months of my life to be a missionary, to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. As a missionary I go out every day and I teach about Jesus Christ, faith, repentance, baptism, God's plan of salvation for each one of us. I want everyone to have the same blessings that I have. I want them to have the same joy that I find. I want to help them come closer to Jesus Christ. I want to become a better disciple of Jesus Christ, and I only know how to do that through being an example of living what I believe.
