Hi I'm Elise

I love sports, music, and my family. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 21 years old and the eighth of nine kids. I have 15 adorable nieces and nephews and love being part of a big family. I am a junior in college, studying Math and Statistics. I am also minoring in music, as I have always loved playing the piano and violin all my life. I love being active and playing volleyball, basketball, or soccer. Last year, I went to China for a few months as a volunteer English and Math teacher. It was the greatest decision and I love and miss the people in China. I will be serving a full time mission in Charlotte, North Carolina. I can't wait to work hard and serve the great people there.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this gospel brings me happiness and joy. This gospel has provided me with a sure knowledge of my Father in Heaven's plan of happiness. Our Heavenly Father loves every single one of his children and wants us each to be happy. I am a Mormon because I want to return to My Heavenly Father's presence again someday. I love my Savior. I am grateful for His sacrifice. I am so grateful for the enabling power of the atonement. I know The Book of Mormon is true, for I have received a witness from the spirit that it is truly another testament of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The knowledge I have gained makes me happy and I know that studying the Book of Mormon brings us closer to our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I look for ways to serve. Service softens and opens hearts, for it is truly the gospel in action. I have been blessed with great parents and siblings who have always been amazing examples of service. Our Savior Jesus Christ was selfless and always helping those in need. I want to follow His example and always go out of my way to serve others.
