Hi I'm Talisa Carlisle

I grew up in utah. Im a full time student at an art school. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in TN and was raised in utah when my parents got a divorce, after that my mom remarried and I now have two younger siblings. I have many hobbies, I love video games and Japanese anime. I am a full time student and am majoring in video game design. I love to read book and mainly read fantasy novels and have read so many that i have lost track of how many i have read. I also am a huge music fan and have grown up with music in my life so i have lots of favorite genera of music that in include country, oldies rock, some hip hop and classical music.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a mormon my whole life and have never thought about being anything but that now that I live on my own. There was a time when i first moved out to go to school that I stopped going to church except when I would go to my parents house to visit because I made the excuse that I couldnt find the singles ward and didnt know where to go. While that was happening I began to notice that things were going well in my life and that the spirit was missing in my life. So I finally decided just to find a church building and walk in and ask where the singles ward was for my area. Now that I am going to church again I can tell my life as changed for the better things in my life have gotten alot better than they where. I do have a testimony of this church and the power that it give the men of the church to preform wonderful things to those that need it. Recently I was with my family picking up my grandparents at the end of their full time couples mission in Kansas and on the way home I was bitten by some kind of bug and had a really bad allergic reaction to them on my arms to the point where i couldnt move them. My father and grandfather gave me a priesthood blessing of healing and comfort and within a couple minutes we could see that power working on me and healing my arms so that I could use them again. I am so grateful for the church and the blessings that come through it and the spirit you feel when you are close to god. I hope one day others around me will be able to feel that spirit as well

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example the best I can to my younger siblings and those around me. My boyfriend that I have right now is not a member of the church so I am trying to be a good example and influence to him so that he doenst thing anything bad of me later on down the road.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Talisa Carlisle
Temples are very important to use and provide us with the opportunity to receive many great and wonderful blessings that come with going to the temple. We are able to be sealed to our family and our future spouse and the family that will come with that for time and all eternity, we are also able to preform work that we are able to receive will living through the temple for those that are no longer with us so they can have those blessings as well and be sealed to their family that is still living.
