Hi I'm Eliza

I grew up in Utah, I love my family and friends. I'm serving a mission in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I come from a family of two loving, wonderful parents and 5 great brothers and sisters. My family means everything to me. We are slowly expanding with my siblings getting married and having children of their own. I love the new additions! It fills my life with joy! I went to cosmetology school while in high school and shortly after graduation became a licensed cosmetologist. I love hiking and traveling to see all the amazing things this world has to offer! I enjoy exercising, shopping, and the theater!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is Christ's true and living church. I have seen the immeasurable influence of joy and peace it brings. I witness miracles everyday confirming the reality of this truth. Christ leads and guides the church today just as He has always done before. This is the only way to lasting happiness, this is where questions of the soul are answered, and this is the only way back to our Heavenly Father. I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others and daily striving to be more like my Savior Jesus Christ. I live my faith because I love my Savior and I know this is His true restored Gospel. I show my love by keeping His commandments and repenting when I mess up. By trying to be better every day, through love and service to my brothers and sisters. As Christ said to Peter in John 21:17 "..Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep." and in Mosiah 2:17 "..when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." I know this to be true, so I strive to improve everyday and that is how I live my faith!

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Eliza
No. We worship Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. But we acknowledge the Prophet; we respect him; we reverence him as an instrument in the hands of the God. He played a huge part in restoring the church. Like Abraham, or Moses we do not worship them, but we do honor them for their service and sacrifice in helping guide the way back to Christ.
