Hi I'm Elliot

I live in California. I love to play basketball and be around my friends and family. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Elliot. I am the third child out of four in my family. I have lived in California my whole life. I love to play and watch basketball and be around other people- friends, family, or even strangers. I recently graduated high school and will soon be serving a full-time mission in Peru for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have faith in Heavenly Father, his son Jesus Christ, and his eternal plan of happiness for each of his children. God loves each of his children. He has created a plan that gives us the opportunity to have true peace and happiness, and to overcome our weaknesses. Being a Mormon, along with the faith that I have gained, has allowed me to always have hope for the future and to always strive to be a better person each day.

How I live my faith

I attend church each sunday. At church I perform priesthood ordinances such as blessing the sacrament. Also, I do lots of service for people in my ward and in the community such as: yard work, home maintenance, helping out schools by building sports equipment, and always trying to be Christlike. Another way I live my faith is by choosing to serve God by going on a mission.
