Hi I'm Elaina O'Thorup

I grew up in Utah. I will be learning all my life. I love music and am a musician. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have a great love for music and language. I feel those two go hand in hand. I enjoy playing volleyball and learning to play new types of music as well as striving to learn new languages, though the process can be slow.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed and was born into a primarily Mormon family. I grew up learning all the wonderful teachings of this church that have helped me through the trials that I have been through and continue to go through. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and he has shown me through simple feelings of comfort and reassurance, that everything will turn out fine and that I only need to have a small bit of faith, strength and will to work through the trials that come my way. I have truly been blessed by my Heavenly Father. I hope to be able to serve someday as a missionary and share this gift that has helped more than I can express in a few words.

How I live my faith

I go to activities with the young women and leaders in my ward and stake and I attend church on Sundays.
