Hi I'm Lisa

I'm mom to six and grandma to 7. I love to learn new things and serve others. I'm grateful to be a Mormon.

About Me

I have three married daughters, a daughter on a mission in Paris, France, a son on a mission in Cleveland, Ohio, and one son at home. I like to read, work on the computer and help other people. I exercise at Curves 3 days a week. I volunteer once a week sewing costumes for the Mesa Easter Pageant-Jesus the Christ. I'm in a book club and a sewing group that meets once a month. I was active in the PTO when my children were younger and I help out at church any way I can. I like to travel and see different parts of the world. I love to see my friends and do things with them. It's great to have grandchildren!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church all my life but when I was a teenager, I thought long and hard about whether or not the church was true. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed for myself to find out if it was true. I recieved a warm and wonderful feeling which I have felt many times since, confirming to me the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church here on the earth and I am so grateful to have that knowledge and power in my life!

How I live my faith

Besides making costumes for Easter Pageant, I have had many other opportunities to serve in the church and in my community. I have been an officer in PTO for 5 years, made costumes for school plays, served in the church nursery, been a youth leader at girls camp, been a cub scout den mother, been president of the children's and women's organizations and had many other wonderful experiences. I occasionally take dinner to those who have been in the hospital or had a death in the family. I have gained a lot of experience and confidence from these opportunities and feel that I have gained more than I have given. I am currently serving in the nursery and desire to share the blessings that I have found through faith in Jesus Christ with others.
