Hi I'm Elizabeth!

I'm an Aussie. A missionary in SLC, Utah. I love art and movies. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission and am loving it! I am half way through a Bachelor of Regional and Town Planning which I was studying in Brisbane Australia. I love art and travelling. After high school I took a gap year in which I lived in Spain for a year on a student exchange. While I love Australia, I enjoyed travelling around Europe whilst overseas and would love to travel to as many places as possible. I've grown up in a family of six where my four siblings and I have played music together and learnt the importance of commitment with extra-curricular actives such as swimming training. My family love camping and went camping almost every holiday growing up either out bush or at the beach. I love my family!!

Why I am a Mormon

I love and feel priveliged to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it enables me to live my life achieving more than I could ever dream and why doing so maintaining a cheerful outlook in all situations. I was born into the church, as my parents are both members, so I grew up going to church but while I was living in Spain, living with a Spanish family who were not Mormons I really gained a commitment and made choices continue to attend church and live the standards that I bring happiness. I chose to do this because I know that the church teaches the truth about who we are and why we are on this earth. I know that by living the teaching of the church, outlined by Jesus Christ, I will be able to gain all the worthwhile experiences that life has to offer and enjoy it!

How I live my faith

At this time in my life I am dedicating 18 months to the service of others. I have been called as a representative or missionary. I have chosen to spend this time inviting others to come and learn of our Saviour Jesus Christ because of the joy and opportunities that I have gained through the knowledge and participation in his restored church. I will be sharing my beliefs with people from all around the world as I serve in Salt Lake City and for a period of time elsewhere in the States. I will mostly be spending my time showing people around various sites in Salt Lake City and sharing the significance of key buildings and places. I will also be going out into the community helping others and inviting everyone to learn more about what Jesus Christ has done for us.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Ghost blesses my life in so many ways. The Holy Ghost helps me remember things, prompts me to do things and helps me know what is true through thoughts, impressions and warm feelings. Having the gift of the Holy Ghost allows the Holy Ghost to be with someone all of the time if they are doing what's right. Show more Show less
