Hi I'm Lisa Schenk

I'm doing what I've always wanted to do in life. I am a wife and mom who loves spending time with her family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family hiking, biking, skiing and camping. The world is so beautiful, and eveywhere I go I am amazed at the variety of God's creations. There are so many places in the world I would love to visit. I enjoy taking pictures of everything we do and blogging about it! Now that my kids are growing up and living in other places, I love going to visit them or best of all, when we're all home together. My husband and I just became grandparents. Life continues to provide me with joy in my family!

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon. My parents were members of the church, so I grew up going to church every Sunday. I have had the blessing of teaching my own children about God and His love for us. Knowing that he cares about us and wants us to live with him again has always been a source of happiness and peace for me. It's wonderful to have confidence that God knows me personally, and that he has certain expectations for me. I feel so blessed to have a knowledge of His commandments. By living the way God expects me to, to the best of my ability, I have so much joy in life. Because God is my Creator, I trust that he knows how I should live in order to return to live with Him again someday and to have my family with me eternally. That is what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is all about. Christ is the way, the truth and the light.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the church all of my life means that I have had the opportunity to serve in many different assignments. One of my favorites is teaching children about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Watching the light in their eyes as they learn more about our Savior and His love for all of us is a wonderful thing. I also enjoy working with the youth, they have so much energy and zest for life. Helping them have strength to live their lives with good character and moral convictions is so important today. I also enjoy getting together with the other women in our congregation for all kinds of activities like book club, learning about cooking and storing food, budgeting, and learning new skills and crafts. I have always loved to sing, so I am in the choir at church and sometimes sing in small groups for church meetings.
