Hi I'm Elle Covey

Hello there! My name is Elle. I love riding my horses, and traveling. I'm a mormon. I know it, I live it, and I love it!

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Utah. I have 7 siblings, so I come from a big and loving family. I love galloping my horses out on the trail and teaching horseback riding lessons. I love cooking healthy food, traveling to incredible places, photography, and learning new things. I am currently studying in college, but I'm not certain on what I will major in, so I'm just taking generals for now. I recently have been called to Serve in the West Indies Mission! I will be leaving in May 2015, and will return in November 2016! I will be speaking English on 11 different Islands in the Caribbean. I will be putting pause on life here to serve the Lord for 18 months, and cannot be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this Church is the truth. I have felt it! I know that Jesus Christ lives! I know that Joseph Smith brought back this church in these latter days! I know that if we will come unto Christ--he will save us, heal us, and change us. The purpose of this life is to prepare ourselves and others to meet God. So, if this is this truth, what better way is there to guide us? We have a modern day prophet that leads and guides us. We have modern scriptures to give us answers, warnings, signs, and inspiration. We have the knowledge to know that we can pray to our Heavenly Father, and he will comfort and answer us. How amazing is that! I promise you that if you will read the Book of Mormon completely through -- read it everyday, for at least 20 minutes -- your life will change, and you will get the answers you have been looking for.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping all of the commandments of God, going to church every week, fulfilling my church callings, doing service for my friends and family and strangers, always staying worthy to enter the temple, doing 20 minutes of private scripture study everyday, praying for everything and everyone, and striving to be like Jesus Christ in everything I do and say!
