Hi I'm Lisa

I'm from a small town, I love reading, I'm a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors, I love to read, and I love to sing. My mom, sister, and two brothers make up my family, and i'm the oldest. Being the oldest sometimes can be a challenge, especially if you were the guinea pig growing up :) I've learned that life is what you make of it, you can choose to have good days, or you can choose to have bad days. So....why not choose to make everyday a great day? Something that has helped me have better days is by reading the Book of Mormon every day. I'm not sure how to describe the feeling i get or how it works, but i do know from personal experience that it does work. I'm currently serving as a missionary in the Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Mission which i'm loving. Being a missionary means i have the opportunity to go and talk with so many different people about the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how He can help us with whatever challenges we're going through.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church since i was a little kid, so it was a tradition to go to church every Sunday, do the normal Sunday routine with the family, and repeat every week. However as i grew older i had to figure out for myself if this was something that i wanted to continue doing. I started paying more attention to what was being said in church and wondering how i could apply it to myself. I decided to read the Book of Mormon more deeply and to really ask questions if there was something that didn't make sense to me. I'm a Mormon because I've tested the religion, I've asked questions and sought out the answers. I've prayed to know if this is the restored Church of Jesus Christ and I have received the answer that it is. I invite everyone to do the same and to pray and ask our Heavenly Father if this is true or not.

How I live my faith

I'm currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and i go and teach people about their Savior Jesus Christ. I help people in the community where i serve with yard work, house work, and anything else they'd like help with. I believe strongly in helping others and to "Love thy Neighbor as thyself."

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes we believe the Bible to be the word of God as long as it is translated correctly (see article of faith #8) I love the bible and all the things it has taught me in my life. Our Heavenly Father gave us the bible to help us and to give us direction in our lives. He also gave us another book of scripture called the Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ and completely supports the bible. I love them both :) Show more Show less
