Hi I'm Lisa! :)

a muggle and a......MORMON!!!!

About Me

I paused my schooling at Brigham Young University to serve an LDS mission in Texas Fort Worth to tell the world my love for Jesus Christ. I have never before experienced so much joy! I am a tom boy disguised as a girly girl. I've got the best of both worlds! I love me some backpacking, hiking, camping, rafting, kayaking, soccer, tennis, and anything in the wonderful outdoors. I love the sun on my face and the wind blowing through my hair. I also love me some fashion: shopping, loooong hair, bright lipstick, nail polish, big earrings, and skinny jeans. My dream is to travel the world! I love the mountains, the ocean, and foreign places. But my biggest dream of all (drum roll please)...is to visit Harry Potter World. What what! I have a love for beauty....from beautiful music to gorgeous sunrises in the green mountains. It's all beautiful. The world is beautiful...LIFE is beautiful. Life is to find happiness and we do this by finding the beauty in the little things. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints simply because it is true. If it was not, I would not do what I do, say what I say, and be who I am. It is the most important thing in my life. No. It IS my life. I have gotten down on my knees and talked to my Father above and he has made it known unto me many times that this church is the only true church on the earth. Then how could I avoid it? How can I avoid this church when the Holy Ghost has made a burning in my chest proclaiming it is right?! But beside the fact that it is true. This gospel brings me so much happiness. True, EVERLASTING happiness. The world can not bring that happiness. The world can only bring temporary happiness. This gospel gives me so much strength, so much comfort, so much faith and hope. It helps me to be more patient, more kind, more charitable, and just the good person I want to be. I would truly be lost without the gospel. I would be in bad places doing bad things. The gospel gives me purpose in life. It fills the emptiness and loneliness that life can sometimes bring. It just makes me happy! :) But even deeper than that. I am a Mormon because I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, more than anything. He made the greatest sacrifice imaginable for every single one of us. He made it possible to return to our Father in Heaven. I love Him so much. I want to follow my brother, Jesus Christ. This is His church. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have decided to give 18 months of my life, delaying school, marriage, and my job, to go on an LDS mission. I wish for everyone to have the happiness of this true church. If I didn't know this church to be true, I definitely would not be sacrificing a year and a half of my life to go serve others and share the message of our church to others. Service and charity is such a huge, important part of our church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints stands for virtue, kindness, honesty, patience, righteousness, and all things that are good. These are but a few qualities Christ's possesses and our goal is to become like him. A lot of Christ's ministry on earth was service. In my calling, we try to help those who are in need and lessen the burdens of the world. We accept all. We help all.
