Hi I'm Elise

I'm a Brigham Young University student. I'm a hard worker. I'm a listener. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm attending Brigham Young University, studying Early Childhood Education. I love working with children and other people. I worked at a daycare for two years in high school and I would like to continue that kind of work when I graduate from BYU. I'm going to serve a mission in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the next 18 months of my life. When I get home I'm hoping to be married in temple and start my own eternal family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family of members of the church. I was baptized when I was eight years old. I know this church is true and I know everything it teaches is correct. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel and translated the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it is truth, I've read it and gotten confirmation from the Holy Ghost. The standards that the church teaches help keep me in line and help me to make important decisions in my life. I love Jesus and I know that He loves me because he suffered for my sins and died for me so that I can return to live with my Heavenly Father after I die. I live and love this church everyday of my life and it helps me though difficult times in my life.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I read and study the scriptures in and out of church. I pray to my Heavenly Father so that I can have insight for my life. I do service projects with my church group. I am kind and supportive to the people I meet and associate with.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

The family is central to God's plan and the church. The family is so important to us that when we get married we decide to be with our spouse and our children for eternity. Not "til death do you part." We are here to bring children into the world and raise them in truth and righteousness, to love and provide for them. Show more Show less
