Hi I'm Ella

I am a student, a sister, and a daughter of two loving, yet divorced parents. But most importantly, I am a daughter of God.

About Me

I am currently a student enrolled at BYU-Idaho. I am interested in many fields, but it is a difficult thing to choose. I am an artist in the sense that it is one of my passions. Art is an expression of oneself and that's what I love to do, express myself through drawings. I am the oldest of three children. The other two children being boys. My parents are divorced, yes, yet I do believe that families are forever and that Christ does heal all wounds.

Why I am a Mormon

This is a billion reasons that I could list as to why I am a Mormon, but when it comes down to it, the main reason is because I have faith that this is the true church. I believe in Christ and His Atonement. I believe in God. I believe that Joseph Smith restored the full and true church back on the Earth and that we have been receiving endless blessings because of it ever since. The world has not been the same since the restoration in the fact that it has been better.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not only serving in my callings that I have had in the past and recently, but by being as Christ-like as I can every single day. It's all in the foundation steps. Reading my scriptures to understand God's church, saying my prayers to build a relationship with my Heavenly Father, attending church, and fulfilling my callings is how I live the Gospel.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Ella
We do not worship Joseph Smith, but he is an important figure. He was a prophet so we respect him. Show more Show less
