Hi I'm Lizzy

I was born and raised in the wonderful state of Idaho in the wonderful city of Boise.

About Me

I am a student at BYU-Idaho studying Recreational management. I love to run and am just getting into triathlons. Although I love working out, I am 99.9% sure that I am a Disney Princess. Just ask my mom.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon. It is literally in my blood. I love hearing stories about the pioneers because it always makes me reflect on my life now and what I can do to be better. They endured so much. So much. I love them for it. The church is true. I don't have a doubt in my mind about that. I see miracles every day that continually prove that to me. The sun that greets me in the morning, or the stars that I see at night. My roommates smiling face as she greets me when I get home and tells me that I she missed me, even though its only been 2 hours. The care packages from my mom, full on goodies and a note that says "I love you!! XXXOOOO". The expression on my bishop's face as he looks at me, and I can tell that the spirit is speaking to him. And the feeling that I get in the temple as I go into the fount to be baptized for those who cannot be baptized for themselves. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith first and foremost by being an example. Being in Rexburg, ID you would think that all Mormons believe and live the same way. Well, that is not true. I have been tested here more than I ever was around my friends who weren't members at home. Nobodies perfect, and we all need to be examples to one another. Its hard to stand up for yourself and your values when you are with your friends. Sometimes you even think, well they are my friends, but you have too. I know what the Lord wants me to do. He wants me be be clean, and be faithful and be humble. He wants me to stay away from things that would hurt my soul. He wants me to come live with him again. No matter who you are, you MUST stand up for what you know is right and true.
