Hi I'm Eleanor

I live in the uk, I'm married with two gorgeous little boys! I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm married to a wonderful man who is a great husband and father. we have been together since we were 17. i was born into the mormon faith, but my husband converted when he was 19. ten years later we have to two precious little boys, who keep us very busy! I work part time and am studying a foundation degree in business and I.T I've never been a fan of sport or exercise but have recently found crossfit and I love it, both my husband and I now both go- although I have a long way to go before I'm as fit as him! I love being a mother, it can be tiring but I wouldn't change my boys for the world! I enjoy spending time with my family more than anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the lds church so have always been a mormon. As a teenager I often found it hard to talk about my faith as I didn't want to be judged, I didn't always have many other teens at school who were mormon or had heard of Mormons. As I have grown up it has become a little easier and I have come to gain a testimony to know that the church is true. I love that family is the main focus of the church, I know that if we live faithfully we can be with our families forever. Knowing this is the best blessing, it gives our lives purpose and can comfort us when experiencing loss of a family member. Death is not the end and we will see our loved ones again. With this knowledge, I will try my best to be a good mother, wife and member of the church, so I can be with family forever- this is why I'm a mormon.

How I live my faith

At church I teach a lesson once a month to the ladies, it was scary at first but with practice it gets easier. I also help organise activities such as childrens parties ( Halloween/Christmas/Easter) and ward activities like most recently a barn dance. I love planning fun events at church for members and non members can come together and and have a good time!
