Hi I'm Elizabeth Steagall

I grew up in Utah. I'm a swimmer. I'm a Jazz Singer. I love everything about music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old and I'm currently serving an LDS mission in the Portugal Lisbon Mission. I have been on swim team since I was 6 years old and I competed at the state swimming competition all 4 years of high school. My best strokes are freestyle and breaststroke. I have also sung almost my whole life. I started off singing Broadway and Show-tune style songs, which got me into doing musical theater for a few years. I was in several musicals including Annie, Les Miserable, The Music Man, Hello Dolly, and Seussical. My senior year of high school I started singing jazz music with my high school Jazz Band and fell in love with it. I released a jazz album in May 2014 entitled "That Jazz Thing." I am currently a student at Brigham Young University, studying Vocal Performance with an emphasis in Jazz Studies.

Why I am a Mormon

One of the biggest things is because through this church, I've learned that I am a child of God and that He loves me. I know that I am never truly alone, because Christ will always be there for me. I know that I can pray to my Father in Heaven any time and He will always be there to listen to me. The feeling I get when I go to church is unlike anything I've ever felt. There is a spirit that just makes you want to try a little harder to be a little better.

How I live my faith

I grew up in the church, so it has always been a big part of my life. I have been able to help a lot as a youth leader for this church. It has been an amazing experience to help teach the young men and young women about how they are all children of God and that He is there to listen to them. Teenage years are not the easiest, but when you are living righteously and you know God is on your side, things just seem to work out better.
