Hi I'm Liz

I'm in a One Act Play group. I was born and raised in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in a small town now, but I used to live in uptown Houston! I went from going shopping all the time and going out constantly( a normal Houston girl life) to training and breaking horses, pretty drastic change. I have moved three times and been through two divorces with my mom. Now I live in the middle of a beautiful little canyon practically off the grid! Here I train goats for 4-H, write like crazy, read all the time and try to keep my grades up as high as I can! I hope to attend college at BYU Hawaii and double major in Marine Biology and Cultural Studies.

Why I am a Mormon

I don't have a big story like all the converts have. I never suddenly "saw the truth" and had to be baptized. Short and sweet, i was raised in it. So big conversion story? Not from this girl. But growing up in the gospel, I have been able to see the differences between my family and others, the fact is, you can just feel the difference. Like when you sit down and pray and have family scripture study. Yeah it takes longer than you would want to spend with your family sometimes, but other times, it just is a good family experience. I'm not saying my family has no problems we just try to help each other through those problems. Not only that, I have been to other churches, and i have felt the difference between this church and all the others, the truth that you have in this church, you just can't find it anywhere else, and that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Well, I live my faith like anyone else would live their faith. I don't do drugs, I am friends with awesome people that believe in Christ, and I try to avoid things that make me feel uncomfortable, like anyone else. I live life just like all the other high schoolers, I participate in clubs, I do sports, I even go to parties. (I just avoid those with alcoholic drinks and such). I wear shorts, I have boyfriends (not more than one at a time though) and do everything else. I just do church things along with that. I read scripture before I go to sleep, I do community service, and I attend church, go to scripture study with the other youths, and go to youth activities. That is how I live my faith.
