Hi I'm Lisa

I play the guitar, love life and I'm a Scottish Mormon!

About Me

Hey there, my names Lisa :) I'm from Scotland and now 23. I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for about fifteen years now. I love the the gospel of Jesus Christ with all my heart!

Why I am a Mormon

As a kid i was blessed to have wonderful parents that brought me up teaching me about Jesus Christ and to be good and kind just like him. I was baptised into the church at the age of 8. I still remember that day and the unforgettable feeling that God loved me and was pleased with the choice I made to follow him. As I grew up at started high school, I was the only member of the church there, the only young women that attended church for a good few years too. In scotland not many people beleive in God. And so i had to become strong in my faith in Christ quickly. I remeber when i was about 12 that i was reading the Book of Mormon in my room by myself and at that time i had great difficulty reading and writing. so when I read the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I found it extremely difficult to understand things. But that day I started with a prayer before i read. I asked God if he coud help me understand what I was reading through the Holy Ghost. And so i started to read and for the first time in my life I understood everything! I ran down stairs to my mum and shouted with excitment " I understood everything Mum!!". And from then on I knew that this was all true, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God as is the Bible. I have had some many small experieneces over the years that have helped build on my faith and knowledge that this is the one and only true church of our Heavenly Father and His begotten Son Jesus Christ!

How I live my faith

I live it everyday - in everything i say and do! I am currently serving a mission for the church in Salt Lake City Temple Square and I was for a short time in Flordia - ft Lauderdale mission aswell. I LOVE serving the Lord with all my might, mind and strength! I love God so so much - he blesses me all the time. He is the Best!!

What is the First Vision?

Lisa
It is the name given to the experience when Jospeh Smith was called to be the prophet of God in our day. To restore or bring back Jesus Christ's Church to the earth again!! Joseph Smith went to a grove of trees to pray to know from God which church was the true Church of Jesus Christ. As he did that he saw God and Jesus Christ - they spoke to him and told him that Jesus Christ's church was not on the earth at that time and he would be the prophet to bring it back in its fullness with the power and authority that was given him by heavenly messagers. Through him, God restored the foundation of Christ's church of prophets and apostles. I know it to be true, and you can know too! As your read ponder and pray about the Book of Mormon. I promise!

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Lisa
Yes, I really do! His name is Thomas S Monson. When i lived in Scotland I had heard and the prophet speak before. But never met him in person. But then I was so blessed to attend General Conference on Oct 10 and i got to hear the prophet speak in person there ( in the confernece center by temple sqaure). I could feel Gods love for us and for his prophet. I know that he is the man that has been called of God to guide the world today. God loves us so much to help us have greater guidance and contuinus revelation for all of his chidren now, at this time! Show more Show less
