Hi I'm Elyse M.

Southeren girl all the way from Texas. Dancing and beatboxing is my passion! I'm a mormon

About Me

I am 22 years old. I went straight to college after I graduated from high school determined to graduate with a Bachelors Degree in exercise and a minor in Hip-hop dancing. However, I didn't have enough money to pay for school so I decided to serve a mission. Don't get me wrong, school is very important to me. I am currently serving in the San Diego California Mission!! And I love it!! It's a privilege to wear Christ's name everyday; for the next 18 months. California is different from what I'm use to, but the Lord needs me here. My hobbies? I love to dance and I love to beat box. Dancing is a way for me to deal with the trials and tribulations on a daily basis.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? Well where do I begin. I was raised in the church. I am sticking to the restored gospel, because I know for a fact that the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. If not, I wouldn't be serving a mission. I know what people are missing in this world, and I truly understand how it feels to be lost. I bear witness that the teachings of the restored gospel can help those that can't seem to find his or her way in this world. I'm beyond grateful to be a Mormon.I am beyond grateful for my Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ, because I wouldn't be here on this earth without them. I leave these things with you, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

There is a saying, "Walk by faith and not by sight". I have faith in our Heavenly Father that He will get me through this life, and that He won't leave me stranded. How do I live my faith? By reading the scriptures(the bible and book of mormon) on a daily basis. I understand that when you live by the church standards, it's also anotherway for me to live my faith.
