Hi I'm Elisabeth

I love life, I love my family, I am a full-time missionary serving in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania & I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the great state of Texas! I am the middle child of 5 and I am a college student at Brigham Young University. I have put my life on hold to serve the Lord for 18 months in Philly from June 2014-December 2015 and am absolutely loving it! Some things that I love include flowers, dancing, good food, music, organizing, volleyball and anything with my family, friends, and the people I love!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised into the church, so growing up I relied a lot upon my parents and family member's testimonies. To receive my own testimony and know if this church was true for myself, I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to Heavenly Father asking for an answer. In return, I grew the most powerful testimony and was overcome by a sweet spirit. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church with the full and restored gospel on the earth today. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and called of God. I know that it is never too late and that our Father in Heaven loves and cares about everyone. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for our sins. I am so grateful for God's commandments and the blessings He gives us when we obey them. The gospel of Jesus Christ is my most prized possession. .

How I live my faith

I love going to church every Sunday! It's definitely one of the greatest part of my week. It solidifies my testimony and it's helps me feel close to Heavenly Father. As important it is to go to church every week, it's also important to LIVE your faith throughout the whole week! As a full-time missionary, I dedicate 18 months of my life to serve the Lord full time. When I go home however, and how I live my faith on my mission is just striving to constantly represent Jesus Christ. Helping others, serving in my community, having a calling in the church, help strengthen someone's testimony and just trying my best to be an example.
