Hi I'm Elisa

I'm a California girl going to school in Utah. I love houses and helping people, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm preparing to serve as a missionary for the Church in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission! I love to read, dance, watch movies, play volleyball, and meet new people. I also love making people happy, and so service opportunities are always welcome in my book. I'm the middle of three children, and look forward to having my own family some day. For now, I'm focusing on school and getting ready for my mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon simply because I've felt the difference between actively participating in church and living the gospel and not. This gospel and the knowledge of the atonement of Jesus Christ has brought immense peace at happiness to my life. Because of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have a better understanding of who my Father in Heaven is, who Jesus Christ is, how I can live happily in this life, and how I can live worthily to return to Them in the future. Knowing that I am a daughter of God, and that He has a plan for me, gives me a sense of purpose, strength, and confidence. I am confident that if I need help or direction, I can turn to my Father and my Savior, and They will be there. Membership in His church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint, is what set me on this path and continues to point me towards receiving even greater blessings.

How I live my faith

In my current church position, I have the opportunity to interact with other women in my local unit to promote their spiritual, emotional, and general well being. More specifically, I serve as the secretary in the presidency of this women's organization.
