Hi I'm Elliott

I'm from a family of 10. I'm a cook in a full service restaurant. I'm a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an avid Lego builder. I plan to attend college for a degree in mechanical engineering. I am a musician. I can play 10 different instruments and I sing. I love cooking. I'm a Boy Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church and as a kid I was just going through the motions. just going to church because my parents made me. In my teen years I started to shy away for the church and its teachings. I was doing good in school and I was enjoying life. As I drifted farther away I started fighting with my parents more and my grades started falling. I was still attending church every week but I wasn't participating in any of the classes. My life changed when one of my close friends who was not a member asked to come to church. She wasn't able to have the missionary lessons at her home and so she was taught at my house. Just being at those meetings and seeing how happy the gospel was making my friend made me realize what I was missing. I started participating more in church and helping to teach my friend the lessons. I found the true joy that the gospel can bring and I was able to baptize my friend and spread that joy and happiness. I know that this gospel is true. I know that Jesus lives and loves all of us. I know that through this gospel anyone can find peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

I have held multiple youth leadership positions in the church. I have participated in countless service projects in the community through the church. I'm serving a 2 year mission teaching the gospel in New Mexico.
