Hi I'm Elina Rose Butler

I was born in japan. Going into Social Work in Utah. I'm married and loving life! I love the Church! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Japan. Grew up in Washington and attended High School in Utah. I stayed in Utah and attended college where I am currently headed to get a degree in Social Work. I hope to help people through counseling. I was recently married in the temple to my wonderful husband! We are loving married life! I love the gospel and love sharing what I know and believe in. I love traveling, especially to Japan!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have sought out to know if its true for myself. Growing up outside of a Mormon community helped me to determine and think about how I wanted my life to turn out and who I wanted to be. I have gone through struggles and confused times that led me to knowing that this church is true. I continue to be a faithful member of this church because I am constantly learning more and seeking to know more and it is constantly blessing my life and answering questions that I have in my life. I have had many spiritual moments that have strengthened my testimony and confirmed to me that this church is true. I am a Mormon because it has put me on a path that brings me the most joy, as an individual and to my marriage. I have experienced what its like to choose a different path that I thought would bring me more joy or bring me something I thought I wanted, and I have learned for myself that the lifestyle I live as a Mormon is the path that will bring me the most joy and happiness. Its because of this realization and knowledge I have that gives me a desire to share it with all those I come in contact with and with all those I love. It is constantly pushing me to be a better person and shape me into the person I want to be, and the person I know my Heavenly Father wants me to be. I love this gospel the more I live it, and the more I learn. I'm a Mormon because I choose to be, because my life is enriched and constantly becoming better.

How I live my faith

I love getting involved in church activities! I love helping missionaries share what we know to others who are interested. I try to be as open and helpful as I can to all those wanting to know about the gospel. I have many friends and family who are not members and I love sharing what I believe in and trying to be the best example I can to those around me.
