Hi I'm Liz

I'm a Mid-West California girl, I'm a wife, I'm a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California and then moved to Utah for a while. I've lived in Omaha, Nebraska for eight years now and I love it. Ok, not the winter part of it, but all the rest! I love the people, the slower pace of life, seeing the beauty of all four seasons come and go, and being with my husband's family. We have been married for twelve years and have five amazing children. I have been fortunate enough to be able to stay home with them. Yes, it can be tough, but I wouldn't want it any other way. When I have a spare minute I love to read and bake. The best is when I can read about baking! I am a food blog junkie, living out my baking dreams through the blogs of others. If given the chance I would be a full-time, all-the-time student. I love learning and trying new things. My absolute all time favorite thing in life is to hear the laughter of my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the Lord. Every good thing I have in my life is from my Heavenly Father. I know that God lives, that His son Jesus Christ is my Savior and I love learning His teachings. Life is tough, there are so many challenges, struggles and sorrows that come to each of us. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gives you perspective, helps you to overcome these things and grow stronger and closer to the Lord as you do. When you know who you are and where you are going, life isn't easy but it is easier to find joy in the journey.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying each day to follow the example of the Savior. I try to teach my children that the greatest happiness we can have in this life will come by following Jesus Christ and being obedient to His commandments.
