Hi I'm Liz

I was raised Mormon in the heart of our heartland, Utah. My upbringing introduced me to Christ, my life brought me to love Him.

About Me

My husband and I have been married for ten years. While we were both raised LDS in Utah, we are somewhat unique to many other married couples, not just those in our church, in that we don't have any children...yet. Having a great love for the outdoors, Utah is an ideal place for us. Snow skiing in winter, beautiful mountainous or desert water skiing in the summer, untamed and brilliantly vibrant slot canyons to the south, alp-like peaks in the north. I received my BFA in Photography and my husband in Computer Science. We work very hard to make our home and community a nice place to live and visit. Our friends are our family and our families are our heart and soul.

Why I am a Mormon

We both spent many years before and after we were married inactive in the church we had been raised in. We didn't truly realize what we had been missing until a dear friend and neighbor invited us back with the hope that we would fulfill a calling to teach a class of young children. While I was very nervous about not only the idea of going back to church after so many years, but teaching the newest of its members - those being baptised that year at eight years old - I felt strongly prompted to accept the calling and return to the church I had loved as a young woman. Since making that seemingly simple decision, my life has been countlessly blessed. We have also come to be able to bear the most adverse of situations through the healing comfort and strength offered so generously by our Savior, Jesus Christ. What used to burden us now gives us perspective of our eternal nature. Our joys in life are so much richer and meaningful. Those children we have grown to love and admire offer us the understanding of how simple and steady God's love for all His children really is.

How I live my faith

It is sometimes difficult for young women to relate to one another in this day and age. There seems to have been a more competetive nature being encouraged in us in recent years that is very troubling. Serving one another, however, has been the perfect way for me to counter this trend that I myself had been falling into. Through visiting the women in my neighborhood in their homes and in my own, I am learning what a blessing our womanhood is and how beautiful each one of us is. I have also had the opportunity to continue working with the youth by being called as a Wolf Cub Scout Leader. It is so much fun to watch these boys work together, learn and just plain have fun! After teaching several of them previously in church, it has been a great continuation of our relationship getting to know each other as well as our Heavenly Father.
