Hi I'm Lisa
I graduated in Business Marketing, shortly after my first child was born. I worked hard getting through my last year of school. When I was through we, my husband and I, made the decision that I would stay home with our children. He would be responsible for working for the money and I would be responsible for making the money work for us. We now have two beautiful daughters. They and their father mean everything to me. I love to go on nature walks with my two little ones and talk about all of our Father-in-Heaven's beautiful creations. I love to photograph my family. I love to sew. I love to design unique clothes from recycled fabrics for my little girls. I love understanding what is going on in our nation and the world. I feel like being a mother has allowed me to not only teach my children what I am interested in but magify my interests and grow in ways I could have never thought possible.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into the faith of my parents. My parents, grand-parents and great-grandparents were all memebers of this church. I continued in the faith of my parents because as I have had questions about life, my faith gave me answers. The more I studied the scriptures and listened to the words of the prophet and apostals the more clear the answeres to life became in my mind. The clarity and peace still comes and sustains me through all the difficulties life throws at me.
What is hope and what do you hope for?
Hope, I feel, is an optimistic feeling about a future event. True hope, I believe is only available through a belief in our Savior Jesus Christ. I guess it may sound a little cliche to say that I hope for peace on earth, but I do. I want to raise my girls in a world filled with peace and void of fear. Is this possible? I believe so but not through the ways most people believe, peace will only be found in following the teaching of Jesus Christ and in comming to know Him and teaching our children to know him.
What have you done successfully to shield your family from unwanted influences?
I love television. I have never censored much of what I have watched. However, in resent days it has become more apparent to me that what I invited into my home through the television has a huge effect on me and our family. One of the things that have caused me huge concern is all the reality shows where people compare and ridicule each other. I have noticed that through the constant watching of these programs my mind has been filled with comparison and ridicule that has divided me from family and friends. It is so subtle and yet so dangerous. I have limited my television intake to those things that are up lifting and when an up lifting program cannot be found I have turned the television off. I believe a mother can invite or send the spirit away faster than any other member of the family; by putting myself in a position where I can be more like my Savior and feel the spirit more my whole family will be blessed.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by teaching the sisters once a month the words of modern day prophets and apostals. I live my faith by loving the women I serve. I strive to be a little better every day. I know I am far from perfect but ever day I try to think of at least one thing I can do to bless someone elses life. As a mother, I live my faith by teaching my children about Jesus Christ and what it means to be like him. And also, by teaching them, my daughters, about morals and modesty.
