Hi I'm Lisa

I am a wife, a mother of two, a Canadian, a bookworm and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently going to school to become a Registered Nurse. My kids are in elementary and middle school and this gives me time during the day to study. I am also currently working as a caregiver at a nearby assisted living home. I have been happily married for 13 1/2 years. I hold a Hair Stylist license which saves us a few dollars, but I decided against having it as my day job! I love to read and cook. When I have spare time I am usually doing one of those two or both! Music is a passion of mine and I am known to sing often...at home....especially if my kids are fighting! Our family addition is a sweet toy poodle whom we love dearly. Long distance communication is important to us as all of our extended family lives in Canada, Utah or California. We love our relatives and like to keep in touch.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and have been an active member of this church all of my life. Even if you are born into these circumstances, you must decide for yourself if you believe this faith to be true or not. I have always felt that what I was taught in church all of my life is true and right. I went through periods of my life where my testimony of the church was not strong, but I still went to church, at least some of the time. The older I got the more I realized that no one is forcing me to go to church and that I could choose to go or to not go. I already knew, though, of my Heavenly Father's love for me and I felt Him help me through trials and tough times. I could not deny this. I need my Heavenly Father and if I did not do everything in my power to follow Him, what kind of thanks is that to Him who had given me so much? I am a Mormon because I know with all my heart that the Book of Mormon is true and that Heavenly Father knows and loves me and wants me to be happy.

How I live my faith

Living as a Mormon is a daily way of life for me. Every decision I make every day reflects how I feel about my Saviour. I try to make choices that will help me grow as a person and teach my children to make good choices as well. I teach my children to be productive and cheerful members of society. I go to church on Sundays. My husband and I go to the temple as often as we can. I have a position as a Cub Scout Leader of the Bear group, (which includes my son). Cub Scouts is held at our community church building once a week. Sometimes I help out with the children group meetings on Sundays. I stay in touch with people I know from church as a support system to make sure everyone's needs are being met. We read the Book of Mormon as a family and as individuals. We pray before we eat meals, and as a family in the evening. We set aside time on Monday nights as a Family Night where we discuss topics that pertain to life, play games, eat treats and enjoy time together as a family.
