Hi I'm Elysia

I grew up in Colorado. I love running, swimming, food, music and life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of six children in my wonderful family. I love my brothers and sisters more than anyone else! I'm a senior in high school right now and I am excited to go to college and live the rest of my life. I love to run for fun and competitively, mostly because it makes me super happy. I love to read and write, to me it's a way of connecting to other people and the world around me. I love my friends, they are fantastic.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with the church so it's always been a part of my life; I knew what the church was all about and what was expected of me as a daughter of God. However that doesn't mean I haven't had to work on my faith. Through rough and happy times I have felt my heavenly fathers love for me and it has meant so much to me that he is always there for me. I know that Jesus Christ also love's me and that he sacrificed himself for me and the rest of the world so we all can return to live with our heavenly father when we pass on from this life. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and it was given to us as a guide to help us through hard times. I know that I have been very blessed and I am overwhelmed with the happiness those blessing bring me. I have lived without the gospel in my life before, and I know that I am so much happier when I let the spirit into my life. I believe that the LDS church is the reason I am happy, even when things aren't going the way I feel is fair I am happy because I know that I am loved. I'm trying to be like Jesus by giving happiness to others the way he has given me happiness. I know I am imperfect and I will mess up sometimes, but I do my best to be like Jesus and follow the commandments I have been given. I absolutely love the gospel.

How I live my faith

I go to church almost every sunday where there are wonderful people to help me learn more about the gospel.
