Hi I'm Elissa

I grew up in Alaska. I'm serving a mission in Scotland and Ireland for 18 months. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I love being active and the outdoors. In high school I played volleyball, swam, and ran track. I love hiking, kayaking, rafting, skiing, and anything else that gets you fresh air. I recently finished my first semester in college. Right now, I am deferred from school until I return from my mission. I have 2 older brothers and a younger sister, I love all of them very much!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love how I feel when learning and studying about my church and gospel. I love that although I may not know everything, if I ask, I can receive answers. I love my father in Heaven and Jesus Christ. I love the atonement and know that everyone can use it. I know Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon. I know that repentance is real and can help us return to our Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true.

How I live my faith

This semester at college I taught to the women in my church congregation. I attended a religious university so I was able to participate in many activities that were uplifting and be surrounded by people of my similar faith.
