Hi I'm Elisabeth

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Elisabeth Despain. I am half German and half Spanish. I have been married to a cute American man for almost twenty years and we have lived in different places in America and Europe. We have four adorable children ranging from ages 3 to 17. I am a stay home mom at the moment and loving it! I studied Illustration design when I was young, something I never finished. I went back to school years later and got my bachelors and masters in Spanish and German literature and culture. I have many hobbies and interests. I love to travel and learn about other people and cultures...something we can't really afford much right now (he he). I also love to paint and anything related to art and crafts. I have been doing quiet a bit of sewing lately making toys that I sell on etsy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was baptized in Spain when I was eighteen years old and have loved it ever since. I am very thankful to have had and have the fullness of Christ’s restored gospel blessing my life. I would love all of Heavenly Father children to also have that blessing in their life. I have learned that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know me personally and love me. I am a Mormon because I have felt and still feel in my heart that the Church is true.

How I live my faith

I try to apply the things that I learn every day in my live. It is a slow process and not always easy, but I have seen many blessings for my efforts. Reading my scriptures regularly, going to Church and doing my prayers helps me stay on track. Right now I work with the youth. I spend time with the young women that are 14 and 15 years old. We do activities together and provide service to others. It is very fun. I am also in a group of ladies that make quilts for people in need in the community.
