Hi I'm Lisa

I live in Montana. I am married and have six children. We are a homeschool family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a small town girl that was raised in the city. I love being a wife and mother. I especially love homeschooling my children. I love to watch musicals, and classics and I really love to read. I enjoy sewing (halloween costumes and quilts) and I love finding new fun recipes for my family to enjoy. As a family we love to hike in Glacier Park, Montana and swim in the Flathead Lake. I also love to bake and to teach my children how to bake. Our family has a dog named Koda. He is a 115 pound Akita/mix and we love him. Life is Good.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, but I did not become fully converted until my late 20's. I have always believed in Jesus and Heavenly Father but I didn't really have a strong testimony until my life fell apart and I needed to figure out where I stood. Luckily I relied heavily on my Savior during a really dificult 3 years and my testimony was strengthed as I learned about His love for me. I am so grateful for that learning experience in my life. I am a different person with a different perspective and I have a testimony that the Lord helps carry our burdens. I know that He loves us and allows us to suffer so that we can become more like Him. As I experience lifes ups and downs I try to remember that "Men are that they might have joy". We can live life to the fullest by being grateful even (or especially) during adversity. I know God lives and that He loves me and wants me and my family to return to HIm and experience salvation and exaltation.

How I live my faith

I love to teach. Right now I am serving in the wormens organization of the Church. I am in a leadership position but am called to teach at different times. Teaching is my favorite calling...whether it is teaching children, youth or adults. I love being able to explain gospel principles and share experiences that help bring people to Christ. I love teaching my children from the scriptures. When I had graduated from High School I couldn't even tell you who Esther was or Ruth...so I make it a point to have my children know about the wonderful examples we have in the scriptures.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Can you imagine walking into a room to find out you just missed a dessert that everybody is oohhing and aahing about. Wouldn't you like a chance to sample that dessert? Many people have missed the "dessert" of baptism. There are many ways that baptism has been missed: by not being born in a time where the authority to baptize was on the earth, not being in a situation to hear about the gospel message or not being interested in baptism while on earth. Because He loves us, the Lord has provided a way for everyone to not "miss out". He has given us the ability to offer baptism to all of the children on earth and He does this by providing Baptisms for the Dead. Proxy baptisms can be performed in behalf of those who have died. Then in the next life those people can decide wheter they want to accept or decline the baptism done on their behalf. Show more Show less
