Hi I'm Ellen

Called to serve in the Idaho Boise Mission! I love my family, friends, and baseball (in that order), and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the Church in suburbs of Chicago. I'm the only girl in a family of three kids, right in the middle. I played soccer and ran cross country in school, and play the piano. I'm just a regular girl. I grew up in a very tight-knit, loving family, and love to spend time with my brothers and cousins. I moved from Chicago to Rexburg, Idaho to attend school. After a couple years I moved to Utah to work full-time. Soon after I received my mission call, and I am currently preparing to serve as a full-time missionary for the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel has been a source of great happiness and peace throughout my life. It has brought me a greater understanding about my purpose on the Earth. Throughout life's trials and difficulties, as well as joys and victories, the Gospel has allowed me to draw nearer to my Savior. I know the He truly is there, and that He knows and understands me. He died to take away my sins and allow me the opportunity to return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father again. I'm so grateful for Him, and for the knowledge that I have of Him. This truly is His church, and I'm so grateful to have been blessed with the knowledge and truth that it brings.

How I live my faith

I was born and raised in an active member-family. Growing up I attended Sunday meetings and youth group activities every week. I actively participated in service callings in the ward all through high school. My newest calling is a missionary in Boise, Idaho, and I can't wait to spend my days teaching and serving the people there.
