Hi I'm Lisa

I love being a stay-at-home mom of a boy who knows Jesus loves him. My plants are my friends. I like to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spend a lot of my time playing baseball. My preschooler and I take turns batting and pitching. Sometime we interupt the game to pretend to be tigers, horses, ducks or his favorite scripture heroes. On Saturdays, I love driving with my husband and son to discover some bit of wilderness unknown to us. I believe that the God-given liberties we enjoy require personal responsibility and civic engagement. I like to follow politics. I try to be a good neighbor. Even though I already graduated, I would like to enroll in a college course because I love school, and I love playing intramural soccer. Nearly every room in our home has a few plants to liven up our little space on this beautiful earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the eternal truths Our Loving Heavenly Father has revealed to His prophets since the beginning of time. I know that Jesus is the Christ, and that only His grace through His sacrifice provides us the opportunity to repent of our sins and be forgiven. Remembering that we all lived in God's presence before coming to this earth and that I have the opportunity to live with Him and my family and friends after this life helps me make better choices with my time and resources now. I am a Mormon because I have felt several personal witnesses from God through the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is His holy scripture prepared for us as a second testament of the Lord, Jesus Christ. I know the power of prayer is real. Heavenly Father knows me and loves me, despite my imperfections. I am a Mormon because I believe the sacred ordinances of the holy temple bind families together in this life and for eternity. For me, heaven means eternal progress with my family together forever.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by trying to remember the individual. Christ gave us the example of perfect charity. I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. I try to reach out to those who might feeling lonely or different. I take my son with me to visit elderly women who just need some one to sit and listen for an hour or two. I teach my son that Sunday is the Lord's day in which we reverence and worship Our Savior.
