Hi I'm Lizz

Hi, I am from Utah and I am majoring in Exercise Science. I'm serving in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm kinda shy and quiet, but when it comes to athletics, the competitive side comes out. I love school and graduated from high school with an associates degree. As of last year I was attending Southern Utah University, working on receiving a bachelors in Exercise Science. I love the outdoors, hiking, camping, and all sports. I played soccer all four years in high school and played on a basketball team outside of school. I love to sing and play the guitar, and have performed on many occasions. I love to be silly and laugh. Food is probably my favorite thing, something of which most can relate to. I love photography and art.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so thankful for the blessing of being a member of this wonderful church, because I know that without this gospel I would be doing things that would tear me down as an individual. I was born into the church, or in other words, my parents are both members; therefore, I have always been a member as well. However, I myself had to come to the knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel instead of relying on my parents. I read the Book of Mormon and then prayed with a sincere heart to know for myself if what I had read was true. I felt the confirming feeling of the Holy Ghost bear witness to me that it was true. I felt so happy and peaceful and the feeling which was inside me was something that is different for each individual. But I know that my Heavenly Father loves and knows me individually. He sent His son, Jesus Christ, down to this earth to atone for all our sins, so that we may be able to repent of the things we have done wrong, which enables us to be clean again. By this we can be re-united with our loving Heavenly Father again. I want all of you to know that this gospel is true and has been restored again to this earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith by way of the Lord. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ and is the True word of God. I invite all of you to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know for yourself with a sincere heart if it is true. If you do this you will receive an answer.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Mission. I love attending church meetings and being able to feel the Holy Ghost, whose job is to testify of truth, is such a strength that I know I'll always need in my life. When I was going to college we had firesides, meetings at a church, that we would attend every Sunday after church. It's such a great social event where all these young adults come and listen to a speaker. I love going to these meetings so much. In high school I worked as a family history consultant. This was my calling. I'd help individuals find family members and add to their family tree.
