Hi I'm Elise Allan

I love the outdoors, music and my family! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love anything that involves the outdoors, hiking, camping, fishing, all the good stuff! I also love music, especially the piano and the emotion that can be portrayed through it. I'm serving in the Missouri Independence Mission as a Visitor's Center sister! I'm a sucker for a good brownie or anything sweet! And I love my family and spending time with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to born into this gospel, but that is not why I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because it brings me happiness, because it helps me in my everyday life and because I love the knowledge that I have because of it. I'm a Mormon because I believe in the gospel and every aspect it includes. I'm a Mormon because of the peace I can constantly feel when I follow its teachings. And I'm a Mormon because of the love I feel from and for my Heavenly Father because I know that he lives.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be more Christ-like everyday, focusing on who I can become and not the flaws that I currently have. I try to be an example and search for examples of others that are strong in the gospel. I live my faith by keeping my mind focused on an eternal perspective rather than what I want in the moment. I'm not trying to say I'm perfect in any sense, but seeking for perfection is a good start! I live my faith by loving my Heavenly Father and his son for what they did so that I could return to them. And trying to love all those around me, as they do everyday.
