Hi I'm Elise

I love going to church and being able to be with people that share the same beliefs. I am Elise, I am 16 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a teenager in high school. I love to swim a hang out with my friends. My sister and I babysit a lot for others. I do a lot of service. I even do service outside of church because I know that someone will need my help. The reason why is because of the inspiration from in my favorite quote... "You will find answers to your prayers easier when you become an answer to someone else's prayers." I love going to church to learn and to be able to be around people with the same beliefs.

Why I am a Mormon

The only reason I am a part of the church in the first place was because of my parents. When I was 15, like most teenagers, started to question the world around me. Everyday I prayed to find out whether the church was true. I decided to continue reading the scripture and if when I finished and prayed had still not gained a testimony that I was going to talk with my parents. On a Sunday, I finished the Book of Mormon. I decided to take Moroni's challenge. I prayed with a sincere heart and with faith in Christ. Not more than one minute later I received the answer that I had been searching for and now found. I am so glad that I received the answer to my prayer. This is why I am still growing strong in the church.

How I live my faith

With the youth we plan many different activities to help our community. One of our values is Good Works. This includes doing service. I fell so happy inside knowing that i am helping someone out. Doing service is where i find myself and know that what i am doing is right. I soon will be called as the president in the young womens (a youth group for the church for girls). Having this calling will be important because i will be the one to plan what we do and how to keep the girls coming. Being the president is a big responsibility, but with the help of my leaders i can do it.
