However, she also knows what it is like to be a fan. On tour, her merch stand offers lyric booklets, designed so that streaming-era audiences can relive the endless hours she spent as a teenager devouring the inlays that came with her favourite CDs. Ella is still thinking of all this the next morning as she sits cross-legged on her hotel bed in her off-duty attire: blue beanie, orange hoodie, big smile.

If you are worries about her or her family trying to convert you, be honest. Last year I trained for and ran a marathon, which was a pretty good distraction, but with the move recently and work being quieter than usual I'm finding it tougher than I have before. I am 27, LDS, and 5 days away from marrying my own amazing non-Mormon man. Trust me, though--you will. They were taught that bold sincerity of purpose and a charitable attitude is what makes a man. I love him dearly with all of my heart. Your attempts at being funny or lightening the mood may backfire, and your date may be put off.
