Hi I'm Elise

I am an assistant to a financial advisor. I love music and to laugh.

About Me

Hey! I am an Arizona girl freezing her bum off in Salt Lake City. I love to learn and am super blessed to have a job that I enjoy going to every day. I'm from a HUGE family. I have 10 siblings, and 9 out of the 11 of us are girls! we're all almost grown up now and are learning that the best friends we have are each other. My husband and I are living the dream in Salt Lake working hard and going to school and preparing to begin our little family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy! I was born to LDS parents, and was baptized when i was 8 just like many members are. I would have to say that through high school i decided that i really wanted to live the gospel. I like to watch people and through seeing how happy other people are when they choose the right and by feeling how miserable I am when I'm not being Christlike, I decided that living all of the commandments is what I want to do. I know the church is true.

How I live my faith

Every phase of life is different and I feel like I am always showing my faith differently. I have found that it's easy for me to not swear and easy to respect my body and dress appropriately for work in the environment I am in. I love to have gospel related conversation and it makes me happy when I can recognize the hand of the Lord in my daily life.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

I have had experience in my life where I have felt very strongly that yes, family relationships last forever. When I was just 9 years old my mother passed away leaving 9 children alone with our hardworking father. Watching my dad and siblings and struggling through this trial help me learn that we were made to live in families and that those relationships not only can exist after death, but are still important to have after death. Recently I was able to be married to my own sweetheart in the Salt Lake City temple. I decided long ago that I wanted to live the standards necessary to be able to be married in an LDS temple. I never understood the impact the words "for time and all eternity" would have on me. Families are central to our creator's plan for us and the only way to be with them forever is by God's Priesthood Authority, in His house, the holy Temple. Show more Show less
