Hi I'm Elijah

I grew up in a small town in the United States. I come from a family of nine. I love camping, hiking, and sports. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I’m a twin. My brother looks nothing like me, though. We are opposites in height, (eye, hair, and skin) color, and personalities. I grew up in a small town with my twin and I being the youngest. I love being outside any chance I get. I played basketball and football in high school and love any kind of sport. I play the guitar and love music. I am going to be studying medicine and hope to become a dentist someday. I love being with my family and will love being with my future one the most.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this church. Both of my parents are strong members. They have taught me everything I know but have never forced me. I am of the age now where I really get to decide what I want to do with my life and I know that I will always be a member of this church. I have never known any greater happiness than what this church has promoted and given me. I know that this church is the restored church Christ established on the earth, through Joseph Smith. I know that there is a living prophet on this earth today and that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and God's word to us today. I’m so grateful to be apart of this church and all the happiness and blessings it brings me.

How I live my faith

I am a teacher in my church. I teach those much older than me principles of the gospel. We discuss things together and come closer to Christ. I also visit 2 families with another man. We go and make sure all their needs are met. I am also about to go serve a 2 year mission for my church so I can hopefully share some of the light with others. I hope I can emulate Jesus Christ in all of my actions.
