Hi I'm Elizabeth

I grew up in Missouri. I love being silly, the sciences, and my family! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Elizabeth! Right now I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints serving in California! When I return from my mission I will continue towards my bachelor's degree in Biology in hopes of one day going into Dermatology. I have 3 sisters and they would all say that I am the glue that holds them together! I love my family and some of the best memories I have are with them! I can play (or used to be able to play) the flute! Although I am not an avid lifter myself, I love to support my best friend, Marissa, in weightlifting! She hopefully will make it to the Olympics this year! I enjoy being creative and enjoy the beauty that the world has to offer. I am a big goof ball and enjoy being silly! I try to look for the bright side in everything because Heavenly Father's blessings are all around us!

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true! I have prayed and felt that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was truly a prophet who asked in faith expecting an answer of what church he should join, and that we currently have a prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson, who guides and leads us. I believe in God, who sent his son Jesus Christ to come to earth to die for our sins so we could return to Him. I believe that Jesus' Atonement was for everyone. In St. Luke 15:11-32, Jesus gave the parable of the prodigal son and through that parable we can see that no matter how many times we make mistakes or how disobedient we are, we can always come back to Heavenly Father through repentance and the Atonement, and He will welcome us back with open arms!

How I live my faith

I have been able to participate in my church where I have been the president of the girls my age group planning activities. I have also been an indexer where I read documents with names and dates on them putting them in the data base so that others can find their deceased family members. I am currently going on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love the gospel and this opportunity to serve is such a blessing to me!
