Hi I'm Lisa

Let me tell you what an honor it is to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

I love and cherish my membership in the church. I do not know where my family would be if not for the church. We have been so blessed and learned so many wonderful lessons within the church. This is the true church and anyone who will take the time to learn about it will definitely come to the same conclusions. This is where Heavenly Father wants us to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in 1998. Before that time, our family had been to several other churches. We never felt comfortable at any of them. It always seemed that something was missing. My husband was a member of the LDS Church as a child but his family fell away at difficult times. I requested one of the free videos shown on TV and not long after that we had the missionaries stopping by. My husband prepared a list of questions which the two elders answered happily with excitement. They were meant to be helping us at that time. They were sent from Heavenly Father to bring our family back to the church where we belonged. One interesting fact to note: Whenever I have a question about our church, I ask. The answer is always clear and correct. It has never left me feeling confused or misled. That is another reason why I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

It is critically important for us to go to church each and every Sunday. We have learned to put everything else aside and make learning the gospel number one on Sunday. When we had not done this in the past, our day always ended up with anger and fighting. When we finally saw the pattern of our behavior when we did not go, we realized that attending every Sunday was critical to our well being.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Joseph Smith Jr. If you read the Book of Mormon you will read the personal testimony of Joseph Smith Jr. Not only will you read his but 11 other men who testify to the Book of Mormons authenticity. Joseph saw Heavenly Father and His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. They, through Joseph and others restored the true church of Jesus Christ back upon the earth. It really touched my heart when Joseph said how he could not deny what had taken place, nor would he dare. I certainly wouldn't! Show more Show less
