Hi I'm Elisha

I love life. I love laughing. I love nature and being in it. I love my family and my 2 kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 5 siblings and I grew up in Utah. I love to play volleyball, be outside, and do most anything active. I received a degree in Recreation Therapy and a master's degree in School Psychology. I work part time but the thing I love the best is being a mom to my wonderful 2 little angels. I love family and traditions. It makes you feel a part of something special.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a Mormon family, so some may say that I might have been brainwashed into being a Mormon. Others may think that it was clearly circumstancial and I truly didn't have a lot of other choice in the matter. Well, both may be a little true, but I am grateful to parents to provided me with a base of the gospel before I even came to earth. I guess the greater truth is that I believe in the gift of agency. I have been challenged by philosophies of the world and always come away with a sure knowledge that Heavenly Father truly did come to Joseph Smith in the Sacred Grove. He came with Jesus Christ who let Joseph Smith know that the fullness of the gospel was not currently found upon the earth. I also always come back to a knowledge of the real feelings I get when I am blessed by the Holy Ghost and the power of the priesthood. I have a sure testimony of personal revalation and know that Heavenly Father will answer very personal prayers and He is happy to help us gain testimonies of the true principles when we have done our part to search, ponder, and pray. I know that with the Holy Ghost I can always have a member of the Godhead by my side and am able to be guided and receive strength that can only come from our Heavenly Father. So all circumstance aside, I'm a Mormon because I chose to be and I have felt confirmation of the truthfulness of Joseph Smith, the prophet, the Book of Mormon, and the power of the priesthood on earth today.

How I live my faith

I am not perfect so I try my best to do things that will help me repent and renew myself. I try to read my scriptures daily and have daily prayer. I teach my children principles of the gospel. I go to church each Sunday to renew my self and gain strength from gospel principles. I meet with other ladies at church and try to make sure I am serving where I can find a need. I teach a sunday school class to 6 year olds and love it all!
