Hi I'm Eliza

I'm a sophomore in high school, I love to read, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attend Brigham Young University and study geography. I plan to work for the government as a satellite specialist or analyst. I am taking 18 months off from school to serve a full-time mission to the Brazil Porto Alegre North mission. I love art, reading, and fixing broken things. I love my family and my friends and I find great fulfillment in learning new things. I love the Gospel and have made it the biggest part of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. I have continued to live the gospel because it means so much to me. It provides answers to so many of my questions. The standards of the church help keep me safe and happy. When I am having a hard time, I know that I can turn to the Lord and He will help me. Because of the gospel, I know that I will live with my Savior after I die. I know that I will see my grandpa again, even though he has passed away. I can feel the promptings of the Holy Ghost. And when I have made a mistake, I know that I can repent and be forgiven. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, I can be made clean again.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving a full-time mission. I had never planned on serving, but through personal revelation, I learned that the Lord was calling me on a mission, regardless of my own plans. Due to my commitment to be willing and worthy to go on a mission if ever the Lord asked it of me, I accepted the call to go to Brazil. I have had to give up so many things that I love to answer the Lord's call, but I know that every moment will be worth it. I will gain so much knowledge and personal growth through serving that I never would have achieved if I had ignored the promptings of the Holy Ghost. So now I am living my faith as I have courage and leave behind everything I have ever known to bring the Gospel to the people of Brazil.
