Hi I'm Lisa

I'm a stay-home mom, a wife, and a part-time writer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and mother who loves to read a great book, get a great workout, and eat a great meal! I have a journalism degree from BYU and work a few hours a week at a small paper in the town where I live. I have a curious mind and love to talk to people to find out about their lives -- including a number of friends of other faiths. I find that learning more about other religions helps me live my own better. Of course, I am always happy to help others learn more about my faith, too.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this faith and feel so at home here. I truly feel that my church congregation is an extension of my family and love the feeling I get when I am with other members of my church community. Living the gospel and teaching it to my children gives our family a firm and happy foundation.

How I live my faith

I am currently running our church congregation's program for children. It is a lot of fun to talk about our faith each week and to get to know these smart, inquisitive, funny children. My volunteer service in the church also affords me multiple opportunities to make and strengthen friendships with the other adult volunteers I serve with.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

We believe that life is meant to be joyful -- in fact, we believe that's the whole point! That's not to say that pain, unhappiness and disappointment aren't part of life's journey, but that ultimately, finding joy through living a righteous life is why we are here. As a member of the church, I have multiple opportunities to serve other people -- both those who share my faith and those who do not. This service is one of the best ways to experience joy in life.
