Hi I'm Liz

I love animals, I work in a salvage yard. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in the Rocky Mountains with horses and dogs for company. I loved living on the edge of a national forest. But knowing I was missing something I enlisted in the U.S. Navy shortly after high school. I love the ocean, the millions of stars that you didn't even know existed that can be seen when you are hundreds of miles away from a city. The smell of salt on the air and the feel of a ship rocking me to sleep. But I missed the mountains, so after my enlistment was up I moved back to Colorado. I now work at an auto salvage. I worked at my fathers salvage yard while growing up and enjoy working with cars. I live in the city now, and am not able to have a horse, but I still have a dog. A big, black, slobbery, clumsy dog.

Why I am a Mormon

My favorite thing about being Mormon is that I never wonder what the meaning of life is. I know what the meaning of life is. And that gives me freedom and hope. It gives me strength in knowing that I am here for a very special purpose, and that I have a Heavenly Father who knows my name, and loves me. He loves me. And he wants me to come home to him, so he has giving me a way to do so. He has given us all a way to return to him. I also have a wonderful Savior who gave his life for me, that I might return home. Without Christ all of us would be lost.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. My co-workers and friends sometimes jest that they only need to go twice a year and not every Sunday like me. But I love being there. I love being around people who are happy to see me, who know my name and have the same love of our savior as I do. I work with the young women. They are female youth ages 12 to 18. I love it. I love seeing them come into my class children and leave as Women. The changes from year to year are amazing, and seeing them start driving and then leave for college is hard but it is wonderful to see them fly on there own with the knowledge that they have learned from their parents and church leaders.
