Hi I'm Lisa

I'm a Mum. I love playing tennis and netball. I enjoy fixing things at home. I play the piano and the bagpipes. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married with 4 children and am lucky enough to be a stay-at-home Mum. I enjoy doing lots of different things. Since I was little I loved playing any kind of sport; running around the playground or on the athletics field; doing handstands and cartwheels in the back yard; high jump and hurdles; and playing netball. I would attempt anything. After I had children I started to go to the gym, play netball and learnt how to play tennis. Playing sport is very relaxing and rewarding. I also love music. I learnt to play the piano when I was 8 years old. My Dad taught me how to read the notes on the page by following their patterns. When I was in High School I also learnt to play the bagpipes (I have some Scottish heritage and bagpipes makes my feet tap) and I have also learnt to play the Viola. I love photography, crafting, scrapbooking, sewing, cooking and painting things. Since I've been married I have also enjoyed little renovating projects and one of my big accomplishments was re-painting the whole inside of the house. Being a Mother is my most important job and I enjoy raising children, teaching them and watching them progress and achieve their own things. I'm not brilliant at anything but love to "have-a-go" at most things. I am a "Jack of all trades but MASTER of NONE".

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church before they were married so I was raised as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although I had been taught about Jesus Christ from a very early age and always went to church, at age 16, I questioned whether what I had been taught was true. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if it was true. I didn't receive an answer straight away. Then, a couple of weeks later as I was still wondering about the truthfulness of the Church, I felt a strong sense of peace and happiness. A thought came to me that I what I had been taught by my parents made sense and that Heavenly Father lived and loved me. From that point on I knew that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the true church of Jesus Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us to love one another. We should treat one another with respect and tolerance. Through the power of the priesthood families can be together for eternity. I know that I can be with my husband and children for eternity. I know that my Father in Heaven loves me and that if we live the teachings of Jesus Christ we can have a lasting happiness and peace.

How I live my faith

I like to make other people feel happy. I try to live in a way that will help others feel Heavenly Fathers love. I want everyone to know how special they are and realise they all have amazing talents. I love reading the scriptures. As a mother I try my best to teach my children to CHOOSE THE RIGHT and to be kind and respectful to everyone else. We read the scriptures regularly and pray together everyday. I pray my children will know for themselves that they belong to the Church of Jesus Christ. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have been given many opportunities to serve other people. I've taught young children on Sunday; organised activities for the wonderful youth; and taught lessons to many of the men and women of the church. A group of women in our ward are making beanies for premature babies and sick kids. Everyone is so excited to be able to help someone in need. I can crotchet a beanie quite easily but now I am attempting to knit a beanie...a challenge that I will enjoy and conquer...even if it takes me a few months. :) One of the easiest things we can do for other people is to make them SMILE!! As a "do-it-yourself" and "give-it-a-go" person it may seem like I have a lot of confidence but I also see the potential in other people. I wish everyone could see just how amazing they are. We are daughters and sons of Heavenly Father. We have divine potential and can do amazing things.
