Hi I'm Elise

I'm a college student. I'm going to serve a full-time mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year of college. I'm studying human develop and right now I'm thinking that I want to be a child life specialist in the future. I love little kids and in high school I was a preschool teacher assistant. I learned Spanish in high school and college and I love being able to understand things in a different language. I'm so excited that my mission is Spanish-speaking!

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has been a huge blessing in my life. The knowledge that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and will help me is very comforting. It is also comforting to know that Jesus Christ suffered for me, for my pains as well as my sins, so that He understands everything I'm going through even when I feel that no one else does. The scriptures are amazing; sometimes I'll be stressed or something and I won't want to read my scriptures but as soon as I sit down and start reading, I feel peaceful.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday with my family. I try my best to read my scriptures and pray every day. I love listening to and rereading the talks given in general conference by the prophets and apostles. I try to always do what God asks me to, even if it is hard. Soon I'll be leaving for my mission!
