Hi I'm Liz

I'm a bank teller. I love shopping and watching sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Wyoming, but I currently live in Portland Oregon where I have no family close by. I have made so many friends here. I love getting to hang out with them and to meet new people as well. When I do get to see my family I always look forward to playing with my 7 nieces and nephews. I graduated from BYU-Idaho and did internships in Florida and Texas. I love traveling and experiencing new adventures. I love listening to all kinds of music and enjoy being outdoors when its summer time. My favorite place to be is at the beach. I am definitely a girly-girl, but I love to watch football.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born and raised a Mormon that is not the reason why I am still one today. My mom joined the church when she was in college and is one of the most Christ-like people I have ever met. She is an example to me of how I can feel of my Saviors love by being charitable and serving others. I have gained a testimony of this gospel for myself and I know the church is true. It has come through various experiences in my life and a reassurance that God lives and loves me. I know he hears and answers my prayers. He has guided me to where I am today and even though I am far away from my family He has placed people in my life to feel of His love and to know that this is where I need to be. I made myself a promise, when I was 16 years old, to be married in the temple. This is something I am working towards everyday because I know that is how families can be together forever someday. I have read the Book of Mormon and I know it is true. I have felt of the prophets spirit and I know he leads and guides the church today.

How I live my faith

I love going to church each Sunday and learning and growing from the other members who attend. I am part of a young single adult ward and enjoy getting to be with people who are my own age. I am so blessed to live in an area where there is a temple near by. There is no other place that I can go and feel as strong of a spirit as I feel whenever I am there. Some of the times I have felt the closest to Heavenly Father have been while I was simply sitting at the temple grounds.
