Hi I'm Lisa

I grew up in a big city, but found my place in a small town in Washington State. I like a simple life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have 4 children ranging in age from 23 to 11 years old. As a young girl, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a teacher and a mother. I loved to play school with my younger brothers and sisters. I love elementary schools, cute bulletin boards, sharpened pencils and lesson plans. I went to college for a few years to be an elementary school teacher. I stopped school and got married and had children. I have used every bit of education I received with my children. I have gone through Algebra four times now (once for myself in high school and 3 times with my children.) I have helped study for spelling tests, stayed up late until a project was done, reviewed the constitution so worksheets could be completed, applied for college. I am constantly a teacher in my home. So really, I am living my dream. I am a mother and I am a teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because my parents, who both joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as teenagers, made a choice to raise their family with one faith. They taught us the gospel of Jesus Christ and we lived our religion as best we could. So at 8 years old I was baptized and became a member of the church. I'm a mormon today because I have learned for myself that it is true. I didn’t gain a testimony in one big event, but by small moments when I felt the spirit tell me that what I was hearing, feeling, seeing or saying was true. I know that God loves me and hears my prayers. My husband and I have chosen to raise our 4 kids in one faith, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every moment of everyday. With each choice I make, I choose if I am following my Savior Jesus Christ. I attend church and serve wherever I am asked. Currently, I am serving in the Nursey. I love the sweet children. The lessons we learn in Nusery are very simple. We love to talk about Jesus. I pray and read my scriptures each day as a constant attempt to have a relationship with my Father in Heaven.
