Hi I'm Liz Baker

I am a full time missionary. I am the oldest of nine kids. I love the performing arts and helping people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I love singing, dancing, acting, playing the piano and pretty much all forms of art. My favorite thing to do is to smile and laugh and to see others do the same. I am the oldest of nine kids, and I love my big family! My family is one of my biggest supports and there is no where else in the world where I could learn more about life and true love than from my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon, but it has always been vital that I know for myself the things that my parents and my church leaders have taught me. So I have done some experimenting. As I am taught different things about the church I have faith that they are true and then I test them by applying the gospel principles in my life. For example I was taught that Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers. I first believed that what I had been taught was true, and then I acted on that knowledge to find out for myself that it is true. As I would pray sincerely and constantly for something I would be blessed with answers to my prayers, and those answers would be accompanied with a firmer belief and a knowledge that that gospel principle is true.

How I live my faith

I am currently away from home serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Chile. I have chosen to sacrifice 18 months away from my family, my home, my schooling, and all my stuff because I want to show everyone what this church means to me. I also want to invite the people I will be serving in Chile to live with faith and follow their Savior, and to make whatever sacrifices they must make in order to truly become converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that as they act on the principles that I will be teaching them that they will come to know of the truthfulness of this gospel as well.
