Hi I'm Elizabeth

I'm a mom of 5.I recently lost my 16 1/2 month old baby girl, and I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints.

About Me

I am 29 and a stay at home mom. I have 5 children that are the greatest blessing of all. I like to craft and bake anything that looks good. I went to hair school and currently I do hair from home.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, however I don't think I really had my own testimony as a child. My parents got divorced at age 14, and I was on my own if I wanted to go to church. I met my husband at age 15 and went to church with him and his family. We ended getting married at age 19 and 2 years later had our first child. We have been married for 10 years and have 5 kids. I think recently I just discovered my true testimony of the gospel. Recently my 16 1/2 month old baby got sick and passed away. I know first hand that this can try your faith in Jeasus Christ and Heavenly Father. How can he let a perfect sweet baby die who has a family here on earth that love her so much. But with our faith in the attonement and with the belief of FAMILIES ARE FOREVER I know that my baby is still mine, and I will be with her again and still get to raise her. I look forward to being able to be with her. I will do anything I can while here on earth to be worthy to return not only to her, but also to our Heavenly Father. With out the church in our lives, I do not know how we could get through the loss of our baby girl. We are still strugling to find peace, but we have the support of our church behind us. They helped with the funeral service and brought in meals. They continue to make sure we are ok and would do anything to help. How greatful I am to have the gospel in our lives and for the people who live around us that have the same beliefs.

How I live my faith

I try everyday to be a kind person. I know that sounds silly, but It is my daily goal. I try to make everyone elses day a little brighter because you never know what they are going through. I currently teach sunbeams (a sunday school class) which are 3-4 years of age. I know that everyone of them are such special spirits that Heavenly Father loves. I try to see them through his eyes. I try to give service to others as others have given to me. I have been trying to go to the Temple more, so I can feel the spirit with me and be closer to my baby. The temple is a great place to feel the comfort of the Lord, and learn about your blessings, while doing a service for those that have passed.
