Hi I'm Lisa Koziol

I'm a singer, an artist, a seamstress, a really good sheet rocker, a horrible cook, a mother to 6, a wife, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have an insatiable urge to learn EVERYTHING! Sewing, painting, building, spinning wool, singing, acting, making soap, and anything else that comes to mind! It's not enough to see someone do something on youtube or even in real life! I have to FEEL it! I have to DO it! I LOVE my crazy family! I am Mom to 6 kiddos, and wife to my amazing husband. Life gets crazy busy sometimes, but I don't think I could have it any other way.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon..... I think about that A LOT! I was born into the church, and so I don't really know anything else. However, just because I was born into the church doesn't mean that I automatically believed. I was converted! I asked... Many times to know if this church was true. I never got a big resounding YES! I often wondered why... I finally came to realize that I didn't need it. I simply believed. I didn't question, I didn't wonder, I just knew. I honestly can't imagine how life would be without the knowledge I have of eternal families, God's love for me, Christ's atonement, and MANY more truths.

How I live my faith

I am not perfect at living my faith... I struggle with visiting teaching! I do my callings as best as I can. I try to be a good example. I sing A LOT. I always say that I would rather sight read a song I've never seen before that get up in front of people & speak, or bear my testimony! SAD But I always hope that I can somehow communicate my love for my Savior, and His spirit through the songs I sing. A woman in church the other day mentioned that a friend came to her house, and made the comment, "So you don't believe in Jesus Christ?" This woman about died from shame! How could someone NOT know that she believed in the Savior!? I have thought about this A LOT! Do I live in such a way that people just KNOW that I believe in Jesus Christ? I sure hope so! Because if not, I am certainly doing something wrong! I try to love ALL people... No matter their race or religion. And I try to teach my children that acceptance & love. To have Christlike love is the goal...
