Hi I'm Lisa

I grew up in surf city, Huntington Beach, CA. I teach yoga. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in in sunny Southern California, living the typical cali girl life. After my husbands carreer moved us from California to Utah to Pennsylvania, we have finally settled in Austin, Texas. Each of our four children was born in one of the states we have lived in. Through all of our moves, the two things that have remained constant are my spiritual beliefs and my yoga practice. After practicing yoga for over 15 years I have become certified and now am able to teach what has helped me through my lifes challenges.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ makes sense. 5 years ago my 30 year old brother unexpectedly passed away, three days later my second child was born. This past year my mother lost her eight year battle with cancer and seven months later my father joined her after suffering a major stroke. After loosing my entire family in a few years I was grateful for the Gospel and the eternal perspective and peace knowing I will be with them again. I was supported by the church members like a family during the most difficult of my life. I am grateful for Jesus Christ example in my life. It helps me know how to be a wife, mother, friend and teacher.

How I live my faith

My husband and I teach the sixteen and seventeen year olds The New Testament every Sunday at church. It has been a fun and rewarding experience watching the positive effects of the Gospel in the lives of the youth. I try to serve my family and friends and neighbors whenever I can. I try to be a positive example to all those I come in contact with by keeping the commandments. I try to always choose the right! I try and remind my children that they are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. I try to love one another.
