Hi I'm Eli

I'm the second oldest of six kids. I love being outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love camping, hiking, riding dirt bikes and spending time with my family. I have four younger brothers and one older sister. I will attend college at Brigham Young University after I serve in the Japan, Nagoya mission. I enjoy working and like to help people.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that my Heavenly Father has a plan for me to make me the happiest. I know that Jesus Christ died for me so that I can one day return to live with him again with my family. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God and I know the book to be true. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints helps me to focus on the important things in life and look at everything in an eternal perspective. I know that I feel happy when I can serve others and help them to understand the love that God has for them.

How I live my faith

I was part of the young men's organization and really enjoyed getting to know and spending time with the other kids in my age group. I participated in the sacrament through first passing, then preparing and finally blessing it. I worked in the Boy Scout program to achieve my Eagle Scout and learn new things while helping others.
