Hi I'm Elliott Smart

I grew up in Wales, Im the youngest of 6 and im a Mormon

About Me

I have currently finished a Business Degree with Honours. laded a great permanent trainee managers job that would have taken me down the career rout, but due to me refusing to work a Sunday the let me go. I am currently unemployed making preparations to start up my own business. most my time is filled with spending time with my wonderful girlfriend and her 5 year old son. we have been dating for almost 8 months now, they are both so wonderful. I have 3 older brothers and 2 older sisters, so have a large family compared to the worldly standard in wales. so spend quite sometime with them. I live in a medium sized ward in Wale, UK called Bridgend. its not so big but there is room for grow. its a very close ward I am there with people that have played a part in raised me to the person I am today and I am eternally grateful for them and this ward

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel tough in this church has blessed my life in countless ways and I know it will continue to. I know the Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God. he saw God and the resurrected Jesus Christ in the flesh. he seen other Prophets and has restored Gods full gospel to this earth at this time. the book of Mormon is a true doctrinal book that restores the plan and peruse things mistranslated or left out of the bible, I know that Joseph Smith and his band of followers experience all the hart ache they did so that we today can have this gospel today that is so easily accessible. this is the true gospel of God if your not a member consider baptism, if you are a member remember your baptism, call upon God get up and do his work. there is no such thing as being stagnant, your ether building your testimony or losing it so work hard, make sacrifices and do the lords work. It will all worth it in the end

How I live my faith

I was born on the 7th July 1991, 5 weeks premature. a first apart from a slight underdeveloped face (lips) there was no complications. but a few months later there arose a few. for the first few year of my life there was issues, and always had a priesthood blessings. that always! healed me sometimes even instantly. Years later my mum is the only one going strong. I was living the worldly "high life" after a number of fights and injuries later and I find my self in a police holding cell on a Sunday after not going to church. wiles in there I figured if I ever needed my heavenly fathers help it is now. well he didn't get me out :( I had to go to court in the morning, however I got an answer I kind of didn't want. I had to finish my education and prepare for a mission. I have been to church almost every Sunday since, continued my education and started to prepare for a mission. when this happened I have recently finished my Business Degree and I meet a wonderful girl at work who has straightened my testimony even more so she has since been baptised and brought a wonderful 5 year old in to my life. she has been a member now for 5 months and has tough me so much already. this is the true church of God and its centre is families, I testify that having a family life built on the principles of the gospel creates a happier family then you can imagine, not a perfect family but a happy family. God loves families and they are vital to his plan and he will bless everyone of your life's
