Hi I'm Elizabeth

I'm Me....a finger-painting artist, a red-head, and a missionary.

About Me

My name is Elizabeth! I have three older sisters and the best parents a person could ask for! I am currently serving as a full-time missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Melbourne, Australia. I am 21 years old and love to do anything active; running, biking, repelling, and horseback riding are some of my favorites. I love good, healthy food and am almost always listening to music. My Faith is one of my most precious possessions and makes me so happy! That's why I chose to spend 18 months away from my family and friends to share it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because, at first, my parents were. As I grew up in the church, I gained my own testimony of the LDS church! Through going to primary and young women activities, I learned about my Savior's love for me and felt it through my other ward members. Through many experiences, I received witnesses that this church is 100% led by God! It has made me so happy and brought me so much JOY throughout whatever trials I have faced and will continue to be a source of peace for me throughout my life.

How I live my faith

I would like to think my faith has touched every facet of my life! I live it by being happy each day and helping others to feel of this same joy. Being a Mormon is much more than a label or a title. Being Mormon means... I am a Christian commited to following Him. The Savior gives me the strength each day to make better decisions and become as He is. To borrow the words of a girl who asked about my faith one morning on the tram, "You mormons are Christians, but like... more extreme. You actually DO what you study." I loved this girls description. While I am far from perfect, I do honestly seek every day to live my faith in such a way that the Savior would be proud to have me bear His name.
