Hi I'm Lisa

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time stay-at-home mom of 4 kids, 3 of which joined our family by adoption. I like to make cards & talk with friends. When I'm not running kids to activities or appointments, I enjoy cooking and reading. Taking a walk with my husband is something I look forward to...for the exercise and to have my husband hold my hand. We have done this since we were first married. I used to work in accounting for several years...miss the socialization of working outside the home, but not so much the work. Now I socialize with the great people around me in our church and community. I always look forward to fall and the holidays it brings. I truely feel blessed to be at home with my children.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in the church my entire life, there still comes a point when you have to rely on your own testimony and not the tailstrings of your parents. My mom was an amazing woman, a convert to our church shortly after she married my dad. She loved the principles and doctrines taught in our church and instilled that love in me at a very early age. In fact, I can't remember a time I did not believe it was true...didn't mean I always lived it, but yet I never doubted the principles and doctrines to be true. The values I had been taught during my upbringing were so much a part of me, and I was tested & my faith tried and it proved to be true...and it is! I believe it with all my heart. My Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ helps me through all the tough times I encounter, and boy is it a lot! It's a wonderful thing to have a prophet on this earth and apostles to lead and guide us along in goodness and righteousness. I love being a part of this church...and that's why I'm a mormon!

How I live my faith

I try much like everyone else to live what I believe and teach it to my children. Being honest, loving, and kind to others...not judging, & forgiving too. I serve with the good women of our church, helping to plan, organize, and carry out various activities that help to strengthen them as women and also their families. Having a family is something I have always desired and when the dream of being able to have children didn't happen for my husband and I, we looked into adoption and felt good this is the path we should proceed. After 4 years of marriage we were able to adopt through a process of foster-to-adopt, within our state. A year later we were able to do the same with a brother of the first child we adopted. They were easy to love. We never gave up hope of having a child of our own and continued on with fertility. Finally, it paid off and our little girl joined us...then a few years later we were asked to adopt within our family. What a blessing our little boy is.
