Hi I'm Lisa

I grew up in Colorado. I have 3 kids and we are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints- LDS!

About Me

I live in a beautiful town in Colorado. I am a mother of 3 children, two preschooler's and a teenager. I love to read, watch movies and eat pizza with my family. I enjoy reading the books my teenage daughter is reading. Harry Potter, The Hunger Games trio have kept me busy reading this summer. I like to decorate my home and take my kids to the library a few times a week. Any question my preschoolers have can be answered in a book...and pictures!!! I get together with friends often even if it's just letting our kids play at the park so we can chat. My husband and I love to be adventurous, but since our small kids we haven't climbed any fourteeners lately (mountains over 14.000 ft). Our dates consist mostly of shopping and talking about funny things our kids have done that week. :) I take kickboxing classes at my local gym to relieve stress and get a dose of endorphins. I am a sci-fi geek, grew up watching Star Trek with my parents, brother and sister and of course, have all 6 Star Wars movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon for 5 years. I grew up in a Christian home but always felt I was missing a huge part of the gospel. I had questions that could not be answered by the preacher or other youth leaders. Why I am here...what is my purpose...where did I come from...what will happen when I die... My future husband was a Mormon his whole life. We started dating and he invited me to his church. I was warmly welcomed by all the members there. I felt love, happiness and something else the first time my daughter and I attended his church. "I must know more" I thought. I met with the missionaries and they had answeres to all of my questions. Through out the next few visits from the missionaries and with help from my boyfriend, I begun to understand many wonderful truths of the gospel. I now understand that feeling I had when I attended the Mormon church that first time, it was Heavenly Father giving me a feeling through the Holy Ghost telling me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church on the earth today. Modeled the same way that Jesus Christ created the church when he lived on the earth. This church is very organized and I love the uniformatity that I am learning the same lessons on Sunday that other members all over the world are learning too. Anywhere we go...any state...the feelings of the church are the same...LOVE...WELCOMING... I am truely happy in my life knowing exactly what I need to do with my well being and my family for us to live a successful, fulfilling life together.

How I live my faith

I work with the youth in my church. Seeing their wholesome activities each Tuesday, dances each month and other gatherings these kids have given great strength to me. Seeing their love for each other and willingness to serve others makes me so happy to see the next generation of children growing up with these characteristics. I know that if our children can resist the huge temptations of bad things they are exposed to today because of thier testimonys of Jesus Christ they can make the world a more caring place. As a family of 5, we gather together every Monday night for family home evening. We start off with a prayer and then sing a song together. We have a family counsel and review the week ahead for each member of the family so we are all harmonious to eachother's activities and needs. One of us shares a prepared lesson about the gospel, sharing, love, charity, etc. We finish with a prayer and then a special treat! These nights are my favorite day of the week.
