Hi I'm Elena

I grew up in Finland. I am a wife, mom of two, registered dietitian, ex pro mountain biker and and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my family but also work hard at making my business successful. It is always a balancing act with little children. We love the outdoors, classical music, learning and seeing new places. Actually we get to travel quite a bit as a family due to work and having family all around the world, we love the adventure and meeting new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have a deep personal testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on earth with authority given by God and has all the knowledge and power needed for all of to feel peace in the midst of any sorrow that we face. Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ are living, they speak to us, and I have felt on numerous occations their perfect love for me. This testimony gives me an indiscribable peace that I have not found anywhere else in this world. I can seek for this peace and feel it grow as I continue work on living according to His gospel and the principles he has communicated to us through scripture, a living prophet, apostles and through personal revelation.

How I live my faith

I want to serve others and give as I have strenght. I absolutely love my calling in the church as the primary children's music leader. It always touches my heart to hear their beautiful voices. Yes, they get distracted easily but I always feel so strongly the responsibility to help them remember how precious they are as Heavenly Father's children.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I have to say that the first time I held my new born daughter in my arms I was truly amazed and though that there is no way this beautiful creation, this baby with a distinct personage is here on earth by accident or due to anything else but by God's design. I believe that God is all knowing and holds intelligence beyond our comprehension and that we are here on earth to learn and rediscover that truth. Show more Show less
