Hi I'm Lizzy Russell

I grew up in Morgan, Utah. I love people and I love making them laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outdoors and soaking in the sun (I love freckles and so I try my best to collect more and more). I spend most of my time with my friends and family. Right now I'm preparing to serve a mission. I'm really silly and love to laugh and make others laugh. I like to listen to people and hear their stories. Singing is my passion, I love music. I like to be adventurous (as long as it is completely safe). I love to travel and see new things. I take lots and lots of pictures everywhere I go. Preserving memories is what I do best, so I take pictures and other little trinkets that I find and I store them either in my journal or in scrapbooks. Most people would describe me as clumsy and disastrous... in a good way. I tend to embarrass myself a lot, and I mean A LOT. I hope to one day become a writer and write silly stories to bring a smile to people who read them. I read books quite a bit and find books as my way to escape the pressures of the real world. I used to work at a library and loved it! Books are great! I also love love love movies! I enjoy serving others and being helpful as much as I can. Smiling is my favorite, I just love to smile! I generally am a pretty happy person, I can't not be happy. So that's just a little bit of me!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon my whole life, but as I've grown up I've come to experience for myself the joy and happiness I've gained by being a Mormon and living the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I've come to gain my own testimony of the truth of this gospel and why we live how we live. I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that Jesus Christ lives and that He is our Savior and Redeemer. Being a Mormon means being who you can become and what Heavenly Father wants you to be. It means you want to please Him by being obedient to His commandments. It means having the faith to perform tasks and challenges He gives us. Being a Mormon is more than just a title, it is way to live our lives in the way God would want us to live them so we can return to His presence. I'm a Mormon because I want to be happy and because I want make our Heavenly Father happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living correct principles and high standards. I try my best to live a righteous life by avoiding things that could harm my body or harm my ability to make choices for myself. I go to church regularly and participate in all of my church callings. I try my hardest to be an example to others by always maintaining those principles I've been taught. I am not ashamed to proclaim what I believe and I proclaim my beliefs by living how Heavenly Father would want me to live. I live my faith by reading the scriptures, going to the temple, helping others, and by proclaiming the truth to others.
