Hi I'm Elijah Strauss

Hello, i grew up in Reading P.A im number six of seven kids, im also the only one serving a mission.

About Me

Well im number 6 of 7 kids, im 18 (as of typing this 8/1/13) im big into computers and technology and plan to go to college for software engineering and buisness administration, im currently serving a 2 year mission in the san jose california mission. i like to play basketball,wrestling,and biking, i usually spend my weeks working and watching movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church, but sometimes i draw a blank when i get asked about this particular question "do you have a testimony" i have seen the blessings that following the commandments brings to individuals, i have felt the spirit touch my heart as it has with many others, its a bit hard to see everyone you know and love, not knowing of the savior and what he has done to help us return to our heavenly father, through him we are able to do so. I know our heavenly father has a plan for all of us, i know that this journey back to our heavenly father isn't an easy one, all great things require effort, I would like to leave you with this in the name of jesus christ Amen.

How I live my faith

i live my faith by helping members in my ward by serving my hometeaching familys and going to service projects and hanging with the elders and going on splits with them. and some other things

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?
