Hi I'm Liz

I'm a Mom of multiples, a musician, and I'm Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I met in college and had a whirl-wind relationship. Meaning we got married 4 months and 1 day after MEETING each other. And I promise we both believed in taking relationships SLOW. We've been married for a little more than 8 years now, and they have been the best years of my life! I'm a stay-at-home mom, and my husband and I have 5 kids, ages 6 and under. Our youngest are identical twin girls. (The next oldest is only 13 months older than them. So we really have Irish triplets.) I love to spend tons of time with my kids and hubby. Life is crazy with our hands full of young ones, but I wouldn't trade my life for anything! I studied music, both piano and vocal, and elementary ed at school. I love to dance, read, do crafts, crochet, bake, ASL, or anything that keeps my hands busy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, but as I got older, I wondered for myself if this was something I wanted to continue in my life. I had other friends of many other faiths, and after a time, I knew that I felt happiest with the values I was raised with in the Mormon church. I didn't want to pick a church just because it was close by, or that had a leader that taught things that pleased me. I wanted to be a member of one that was just like the one Christ had organized when he was here on the earth, with prophets, and apostles, and taught the same things he did. The mormon church is just that. We have a living prophet, that leads and directs us, the same way Moses, Abraham, and others did. Our prophet today is guided by God, the same way prophets of old were. And because of it, I know this church is the true church. His Spirit has filled my soul with warmth and joy to witness to me that it is true.

How I live my faith

Service is a large part of our faith. We believe that when we serve others, we are serving God. We are His hands. We help each other, other members of our community, and others around the world! I chose to learn how to crochet in high school just so I could make leper bandages for people on the other side of the world I didn't know. I've also made hats for homeless youth. I have helped make humanitarian relief kits to send around the world to those who have suffered in natural disasters. In this way, I know I'm doing what our Savior, Jesus Christ would do.
