Hi I'm Lisa Marie Royal

I'm a recent college graduate. I'm happy. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest daughter in a family of five kids, and except for maybe my religion, they mean more to me than anything else. I recently graduated from college in English Education, so now I have more time for the things I love and a little break from the things I don't! I love trying new things, and my list of hobbies reflects that--I love reading, listening to music, playing music on the piano and guitar, traveling, restoring cars, photography, playing volleyball, wakeboarding, snowboarding, camping, visiting museums, and cooking. Although I went to be a school to be a teacher, I decided to take an office management job at a commercial real estate brokerage--and I love it! I live away from home, but I have a wonderful roommate and great friends and ward members who keep me feeling loved.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me purpose, happiness, and comfort in my life. Because of the gospel, I know that families can be forever, that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me, and that there is purpose and joy in life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every minute of every day because it is more than just going to church on Sundays (though I do that too!). I go to a singles ward, which is a ward made up of young single adults, and am able to contribute to it by planning out the weekly Family Home Evening activities (FHE). Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints participate in weekly FHE's to strengthen families, and young single adults are able to do the same together in singles wards in preparation for our own families. I love my calling because I am able to make great friends and plan fun activities, but also because I am able to serve my fellow ward members and help achieve unity in our little "family". Even more important than the friends and the fun, we are able to strengthen our testimonies while teaching and learning with one another.
