Hi I'm Elizabeth Hales

I grew of in Harrisville, Utah. I'm going to serve a mission in Seattle, Washington. I love this gospel and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of all girls. I have three older sisters that I look up too very much! There is a ten year gap between me and my next sister. We have grown to love each other very much. My parents are awesome and have been the best example to all four of us. I am the aunt of 8 and love them so much. We have 5 boys and 2 girls and one on the way. There the light of my life. I love my family and love to be with them. That is my favorite thing to do! I have played soccer since I was four years old. I played in high school and lettered all four years. I played midfield, forward, and goalie. I love this sport. I also did track in high school. I threw the discus and shot put and placed fifth in state my senior year. I enjoy being active in things outside. My senior year I was called to be the seminary vice-president. I really enjoyed doing this and being able to serve the kids my age. I have been going to college to get my degree in education. I enjoy being able to teach and share new things with people. Now I am preparing to serve a mission. I'm way excited to serve my Heavenly Father by teaching people the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love this gospel with all my heart and am very blessed to have it in my life. I was blessed to be born into a family that had the gospel. I have many examples in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that loves this gospel so much. I have had many examples to follow. I am a member of this church because I have a testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ. He has made it possible for us to return to live in paradise with our Father in Heaven again. This gospel makes me completely happy. We have the Holy Ghost to lead and guide us so we can be the happy people we deserve to be and also the Holy Ghost helps us to do what is right and helps us keep the commandments of this church. This is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the nursery with my mom. In our ward we have an older and a younger nursery. I am in the younger one. I really enjoy it. The spirit of these little kids are so sweet and innocent. I know that they are sons and daughters of God. He loves them with all his heart. I have grown to love them so much. This summer I was able to be a girls camp director. This is where you get to plan girls camp and get to go to girls camp. It was fun to go as a leader instead of a youth. I really enjoyed the girls and there testimonies. The youth of this church is very strong. We can learn so much from them.
