Hi I'm Elizabeth Griffiths

I'v worked research in Women's health. Im an outdoors and art enthusiast. I serve as a full-time LDS missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently I'm a college student trying to find my place in the world and secure my future. I have worked in both the clinical and research side of Women's health and have found a great passion for motherhood and international women's rights. I grew up moving all over the United states and spent most of my memorable teenage years in North Carolina. My parents divorced during high school then I was married young and divorced myself three years later. I have seen the great and terrible effects of Pornography on family and marriage relations. Though there have been a lot of difficulties coming from so many broken relationships I can truly say my faith has gotten me through. This probably sounds conventional on this site, but truly I've lived it. In my young adult life I have also had many opportunities to explore the great outdoors with friends. I have had many wonderful adventures rock climbing, racing, canyoneering and camping. In spare moments, or late when I cannot sleep, I have developed many hobbies. I paint, draw, write and I have sold my art to help pay for college. I also love participating in musical performances singing and acting.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the "bible belt" I had the opportunity to attend different christian sects during my teenage years. Being exposed the different beliefs throughout the christian world helped me to establish my own beleifs. Often times religion has a cut off point where logic no longer suffices and internal feeling must dictate. This was the main comparison for me, the feelings that the LDS church gave me of peace I found no where else. I may not have a perfect knowledge of the LDS faith, but nothing I have learned so far has felt wrong. The church has given me purpose in my life and a reason to be a good person. The more I learn, the more I love God and I want to treat people better.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life I have believed in gaining my own beliefs and faith. To fully embrace my faith I could not be a bystander. I have thrown myself into volunteering in the youth organizations, organizing children musical numbers and teaching new-convert adult classes. Through living and teaching the doctrine of the LDS church I have grown in my faith and my knowledge of what it is to be a Mormon. I have acquired a great love for teaching the many interesting stories I find in the scriptures and hearing peoples' personal stories of faith.
