Hi I'm Elisabeth

I grew up in Ohio. I'm a classical vocalist with an English degree. I love to play card games and eat ice cream. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing. It's one of my very favorite things. I've been training classically since 2006 and I love sing opera around the house. My other favorite thing is books. I'll read just about anything I can get my hands on, but my favorites are short story and fairytale. I should also say that I'm obsessed with all things "Harry Potter." I have a pair of wonderful parents, an energetic dog and an ornery cat. And I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith, but I lost my connection to it in college. I was diagnosed with depression halfway through my second semester of my freshman year, and through that whole experience I felt abandoned by God. I didn't know where to find Him. So I worked. I read the Book of Mormon every day and I prayed more than I had ever prayed before. And I found Him there, in the pages of that book, in the words of modern day prophets. I know that the restoration of the gospel is a fact and that fact has blessed my entire life.

How I live my faith

I apply to Atonement in my life every day. I strive to act in a way that will allow the Holy Ghost to be with me every moment of my life. I love the scriptures and read them at every opportunity.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

The Bible and the Book of Mormon work together to prove to the world that Jesus is the Christ. Both are the word of God. I like to look at it like eyes: when you close one eye you see one half of the world, but when you half both eyes open you can see the entire 3-D, beautiful world God made for us. So it is with the Bible and the Book of Mormon; separately the books give us only a part of God's truth but together we get the whole 3-D beautiful truth of God's truth. Show more Show less
