Hi I'm Elliott

Hey! I'm Elliott! I love sports, especially football. I have a big family, I'm the youngest of four boys, four girls. I'm Mormon

About Me

Hi! my name is Elliott, I am a senior in high school and a pretty weird kid, I love serving people and making them laugh. I am a priest in my ward and I enjoy blessing the sacrament and administering it when I get the chance. My family is a big deal for me, I grew up in the church, the youngest of 8 kids. I love playing football for my school on Friday nights and representing my church in all ways I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it brings me assurance, peace of mind, pure joy, and happiness. Because I am Mormon I know that if I live right I WILL be with my family forever in the next life. My Dad passed away from early-onset Alzheimer's Disease and Dimentia and I wasn't really old enough to know him before the disease. So knowing that I will still be his son through eternity, when we are resurrected and made whole through the atonement really brings me comfort. I know that there IS a God and he is the father of my spirit, he loves me and knows me personally. When all other lights go out, there will always be my Heavenly Father, who is always there, always ready to lend an ear and listen to me as I pray to him. I'm Mormon because the Gospel holds me to a higher standard, I will be the first to tell you that I am NOT perfect, far from it. But being Mormon gives me pride and confidence in who I am and pushes me toward being the best version of myself that I can be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to live my standards and be an example to my friends and the guys on my football team. Being one of three L.D.S. players on the team and in the school, people really watch you and judge what all Mormons are like by how you carry yourself and act. I try to have a smile on as much as I can and make others smile with my goofy personality. I also live my faith by blessing the Sacrament and administering it for my ward. It is a real blessing to me to serve others in such a big way.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

It is a combination of different books of records written by many different prophets and other men called by God to write and account of their life and times. It's just like how the Bible was written, except this is a record kept by a different people. Show more Show less
