Hi I'm Elyse

I'm a recent college graduate. I am a Idaho native. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am just finishing my last semester of college and will have a degree in Business Management. After I graduate I have no clue where I will end up, but I have the faith that the Lord will guide me to where I need to be. I love to thrift shop. Finding a good deal brings me so much joy, it's pretty exhilarating. I love to exercise. I mostly just love running, but have found a new and appreciated love for weight-training. I love most all outdoor activities such as hiking with friends, snowboard, and any water sports like wakeboarding and tubing. One of my favorite places in the entire world is Lake Powell and I go there each year with my closest family and friends. I love any type of chocolate, Dr. Pepper, and baking homemade donuts.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I have a personal and unshakable testimony. I firmly believe that Joseph Smith was called of God to restore the church to the earth again. I know this church to be true. I know that I am a daughter of God. I know that I can have a personal relationship with my Father in Heaven. I know that as I work daily to become more like my Savior Jesus Christ that I will be able to join my family and friends along with my Heavenly Father and live together for eternity.

How I live my faith

I had the privilege to be a youth counselor with Especially for Youth and Retreat for Girls over the summer. This experience gave me the opportunity to share my testimony on a daily basis with youth. These youth taught me so many valuable principles and how to better live the gospel each and every day. I learned to come closer to my Savior and better receive personal revelation as a direct result of participating as a youth counselor.
