Hi I'm Adrienne Ellison

I was brought up in St. Helens, I'm an only child, I enjoy classical music and watching tennis. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being a part of different choirs. For 30 years I was in the St. Helens Choral Society, taking part in highbrow choir music. For example: Verdis Requim. I really enjoy tennis. I played for my school when I was younger for 6 years. I now love to follow it. I enjoy reading, especially Katie Flynne. I like watching good films. I am a big fan of romantic dramas and western films. I love CSI:Miami... Grisham is a HUNK!!! I have an interest in forensic science and that is why those kind of shows entertain me so well. I like keeping busy and helping people if it is in my power to do so.

Why I am a Mormon

Before becoming a Mormon I was a Baptist for 61 years. The greatest thing I did was changing to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the one true church on the earth today. Filling me with a peace and hope to return to live with Him and my family forever. At a baptismal service in the Mormon church, I felt the spirit, talking through the Brother that was conducting the service, telling me to get off my butt and be baptised. I was going to be baptised in The States, but at a testimony meeting, I said I wanted to be baptised on the next available date and so that is what I did. I got baptised in St. Helens. It was the best decision I ever made!

How I live my faith

I have been assigned to go out into my community to help combine the church with the community. I do this by organising service projects such as "Helping Hands" days, filling Soldier's boxes, or the Royal British Legions Poppy Appeal, which raises much needed funds to help The Royal British Legion care for our soldiers in the field and when they come back home injured. The Royal British Legion is always there to support our soldiers and their families. Every month I try to go around an visit women members of the church. I do this to let the members know that they are loved and cared for. In the past I had the opportunity to teach the little children in the church...they ended up teaching me more than I taught them!
