Hi I'm Liesl

I am a young adult trying to figure out life. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student trying to figure out what I want to do in life. I love to work with children and to inspire them to be better. I love to be with my family, I have 4 sisters and 5 brothers. My parents work hard to be great examples to us. Summer is my favorite because I love to swim and be in the sun. I could sit on the beach for hours and love it! But I try to be happy no matter where I am or what I am doing. I love to read, and cook, and explore in nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family so I have grown up going to church activities. We have always been active in attendance but I haven't always been active in spirit. I loved church as a child but when through a time as a teenager when I struggled with my faith. But just like we are told, I followed the commandments, worked hard to gain a relationship with my Heavenly Father. I gained a testimony that our Savior lives and that He loves me. Although I was born into this church, I consider myself a convert. Everybody has to come to a knowledge of their own. I knew I couldn't rely on my parents testimonies forever so I gained my own and I will always cherish the knowledge that our Father in Heaven has given me. And now I have been called on a mission to serve and teach others about this Gospel.

How I live my faith

In my community ward, I have been called to teach a group of children each Sunday. They are all six years old and they amaze me each week. They are so smart and always want to share their thoughts with me. I can tell that they love church and have testimonies of their own. They share with me how they are excited to be baptized when they are old enough. I also attend Young Single Adult activities. These give me a chance to be around people my own age that share my own beliefs. It is wonderful to get together with them and to be able to bring friends along that are not of our faith.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Liesl
We, as Mormons believe that family is so important. We value our family relationships and strive to work together to become better people. The family unit helps to keep our faith strong and provides us support in the hard times of life. Personally, I am so grateful for my family and so glad that we will have the opportunity to be together forever. Because we believe that families can be together forever, I am more motivated to follow the commandments so that I can always be with the people that I love. Show more Show less
