Hi I'm Elizabeth

I grew up in Taiwan. I am a Chinese and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Taiwan. My husband and I are blessed with 5 wonderful children. The four married ones have provided us with 15 beautiful grandchildren and our youngest son is graduating from university this year. I work part-time at the hospital as a Nuclear Cardiology Technologist. I enjoy tennis, table tennis, reading, window shopping, real estate, attending weight control support groups, nutrition, cooking, lunch with friends and traveling with my husband.

Why I am a Mormon

My older sister wanted to join the Church after meeting the missionaries through the English class at her high school. As a result, my parents invited the missionaries to come to our home to teach the gospel to the rest of the family. At the end of their teaching, I was the only one who wished to be baptized, and I was only 11years old at the time. In my young mind, I believed the story of Joseph Smith and that the teachings of the two young missionaries were true. Soon after, my father had a heart attack, the illness humbled him, and he had a change of heart, literally. The whole family joined the Church in 1963 and became one of the pioneer families of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Taiwan. I have been a member of the Church for almost 50 years and I am very grateful for all my blessings and the hand of the Lord in my life.

How I live my faith

I love serving in various organizations in the Church and community. I help visit and take care of the women in our congregation and neighborhood by providing services or meals when needed. I help the teachers with the Sunday spiritual lessons for women. I used to teach the children and youth on Sundays and served in Boy scouts and various Church sponsored youth activities. I used to volunteer at the schools when my children were young. I used to help delivering meals for home bound seniors with "Meals on Wheels". I taught English to the new immigrants through the community literacy program. I believe to live the way that my Heavenly Father would like me to live is by loving others and serving others, and be a good example as a follower of Jesus Christ.
