Hi I'm Lyssa

I'm named after an 80's SciFi Fantasy movie. My eyes change color. I love vintage sheets. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I grew up partly in Canada and then in Utah. I attended BYU, majoring in English. While at college, I met my husband in the singles ward. We dated, got engaged and then married August 2004. We stayed and finished up our degrees for a year then moved to San Antonio, TX for 4 years while my husband attended Dental School. We then did a one-year residency in Las Vegas. After that, we moved up to WA and now permanently reside. We found a job we couldn't pass up nestled in the Cascade Mtns. During our journey, we now have 3 kids, 2 girls & 1 boy. We are so very fortunate to be where we are and be able to find a steady and stable job.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. But I have known it is the true church my whole life. It just makes sense to me. I know God loves us no matter what. He earnestly wants us to be with Him. All He asks of us is to obey and do our best.

How I live my faith

Living faithfully goes hand in hand with being a wife and mother. Our family has been blessed through a temple marriage and keeping our covenants that we made through baptism, taking the sacrament and in the temple. As we strive to live in a way that is pleasing to the Lord, we are making righteous choices that teach and show our children how to be. We aren't perfect, by any means. But the Lord understands that. He knows who we are and our desires. We just need to work hard with the best of our abilities. Being part of this Gospel gives us great responsibilities to ourselves, our families, friends, neighbors and our communities. We are living examples of Christ and should live that way so that others who know us can see a difference in how we live and yearn for that peace and comfort that He gives to us as we live the commandments of God.
