Hi I'm Lisa

I grew up in Indiana. I'm a red-head. I'm a wife. I am a Health Educator. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am happily married and expecting my first child. I come from a large, fun loving family and am excited to be starting my own. My husband and I are the only red-heads in our families but we are hoping to have several more red-heads running around our home someday soon! We both served Spanish speaking missions but in very different parts of the world. I am a graduate of Brigham Young University and work in Public Health while my husband is finishing his degree. I enjoy exercising and am not afraid to try something new. We have a young boxer who helps us to get outside and walk/play regularly. If I get my hands on a good novel I have a hard time putting it down and I also like having my home filled with the sound of music. I have truly been blessed and am grateful to be a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I remember my parents teaching us about the Savior and sharing scriptures stories throughout my childhood. When I was eight years old I chose to be baptized because I knew I wanted to be like Jesus. As a young woman, I decided to read the Book of Mormon daily. I know this habit greatly strengthened my testimony. I also found prayer to be very helpful in developing a relationship with God. Attending church was always a part of our lives. The friendships and teachers I've had over the years have greatly influenced my decisions. I believe being raised in the church protected me from drugs, alcohol and sexual relations before marriage. I am extremely grateful to my parents for teaching me to follow the example of Jesus Christ and am striving to become more like Him each day.

How I live my faith

Currently I work with the young women of the Church ages 12 - 18 years old. They are wonderful! Each one is very unique in her likes and interests but they are all able to get along and have a good time. We have weekly activities to help the girls to develop new talents and skills along with strengthen their knowledge and testimony of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I am often impressed with their strength and desire to do what they know is right, even if that means doing so alone. The teenage years are not easy but are crucial in shaping the rest of their future. I am glad I have the opportunity to help shape their future.
