Hi I'm Lisa

I grew up in Idaho and Utah. I moved to Georgia in 1997 and began selling real estate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of 3. I am a real estate agent and my husband and I lead a team of several real estate agents and even in this tough real estate economy, the Lord has blessed us to continue to support our family. I find joy in working, being a mother, helping others, playing with my 2 standard poodles, relaxing at the beach, fishing, and learning about natural healing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was adopted at birth by a Mormon family and was taught by example the Lord's gospel. At age 16 I fell away from the church, looking for happiness and excitement elsewhere. In my early 30's I found myself divorced for a second time, alone with two small children living thousands of miles from my family, defeated and completely unhappy. I turned to the Lord in prayer and felt prompted to return to my faith. I vividly remember walking into the chapel with my two small children and feeling an overwhelming sense of love -- I felt like I had returned home. My return to faith was made easy as I felt the Savior's love with every step in the right direction and I know he is still here for me, every day, as I look to Him, and I've never been happier.

How I live my faith

I love working with the Cub Scouts as a Bear Cub leader in our area. These boys remind me of when my son was this age and they help to keep me young. I stay close to my Savior and my Heavenly Father through daily scripture study and sincere personal prayer. Although this world has become a scary place, I know that if I put my trust in God that he will deliver me out of my trials and troubles and afflictions.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

Lisa
I live within a ward and am grateful for the "ward" concept. All of the church members within a geographic area attend a designated ward, similar to school districts. The wonderful thing about wards is it keeps us close, so we can serve our fellow members in times of need. I visit two other women in my ward each month, sharing a gospel message and making sure that their needs and their families' needs are met. I have two women in my ward who meet with me each month, also to share a gospel message and make sure that my needs and my family's needs are met. Our ward becomes our family, watching out for and caring for each other. If we lived too far apart, it would be difficult to react quickly and would slow down our efforts to serve each other.
