Hi I'm Liz

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother and friend. I have been married to my sweetheart for 9 years, and we have 3 of the best kids. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. We are busy with school, music and sports. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in an LDS family, but I still had to gain my own testimony. I vividly remember an evening when I was 13 when I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon was true. The spirit bore witness to me of the truth of that book. That was one of the major building blocks to my personal testimony. Through out my life I have continued to build my faith and have been blessed with many experiences that bless me with the knowledge of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

We are blessed to live in a community with a large LDS population. Our ward has a colorful variety of members that enrich our lives. We live very close to the Mesa Temple, which is one of my very favorite places to be. I try to live my faith by doing the things I know the Savior would want me to do. I actively try to make the best possible choices, by doing what I know to be right, forgiving others, and giving service. At church on Sundays my husband and I teach the 3 and four year old children, which I love, their sweet spirits help me to feel close to our Heavenly Father. I also feel it is important to give service in the community and volunteer at my son's elementary school.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

I've always loved that a "ward" is the term for a local congregation of the church, like in a hospital. It reminds me that we are all working toward perfection. We are all "sick" with sin and need the Great Physician, or the Lord to heal us of our sins and vices. I feel a unity in our ward, as we are all looking toward Christ to aline our will with His.
