Hi I'm Ella

My passion is people. I learn all I can. I'm a Christian.

About Me

I completed one year of university studying Drama and Theatre alongside Education Studies. I am now a missionary and love it! I hope to travel when I get back as I believe it is the best education available and it's enlightening to explore different landscapes and cultures! Last summer I taught English in Asia and I hope to be on the stage some point too. I have a kind and funny family: Mum, Dad and two brothers. My goal is to spread love!

Why I am a Mormon

Here's how my faith works: God tells me to do something, or not do something, but leaves it to me to decide what I do. I then choose and receive the consequences for it. For me, God's direction has become significantly more clear through following and believing the teachings of this Church. He told me to join this Church and I have learned so much through it.There are things I cannot deny because of what God has told me through being associated with this Church.

How I live my faith

I choose it every day! At Church I like to help those visiting or new to our faith, to help translate some jargon used and help them feel included and comfortable. I try to draw links between this and other faiths and find there are many! Through genuinely loving all people, no matter what, we can be unified.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Ella
I love the Bible! We learn of God's interactions with mankind since the beginning of the world! We can learn from many different people's experiences of doing right or wrong and the consequences, as well as of God's true nature and love, AND what He expects of us. So much to learn from the Bible! We enjoy enhancing our understanding of God's words through the context and language of the time when it was written, but most of all, the Spirit of God. I love the Bible, what a treasure it is. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Ella
The Holy Spirit, or Holy Ghost, is our best friend, and the member of the Godhead who is physically with us on Earth. He will teach and remind you of truth, and guide and direct your thoughts if you allow Him too. He is not our conscience, a psychological response; He is God. God will speak to each person individually through the Holy Spirit, if not directly than by confirming what another person has said. Truly you can know God's truth for yourself, because it is God who will tell you. Spirit to Spirit. Show more Show less
