Hi I'm Lisa

I love cooking, the outdoors, water skiing and being a missionary! And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I attended Dixie State College in sunny, beautiful St. George for 2 and a half years and loved it! I am currently serving in the Georgia Macon Mission and love testifying to people the joy and blessings the Gospel of Jesus Christ can give them! I love making friends and get so excited when I meet new people. My nieces and nephews are my favorite people to play with. I love the joy that the gospel brings into my life. I have never had any lightening bolt experiences when it comes to my faith and testimony, but I do know that the church is true because it brings so much joy into my life. Whenever I am engaged in activities that go along with church standards I feel happy.

Why I am a Mormon

The way the church makes me feel is a big reason I love being a Mormon. Principles taught in our church give me comfort and help me to see life with a better perspective. I know our prophet Thomas S. Monson is called of God and I love hearing the council him and his Apostles give to us. I know that all the prophets before President Monson were true prophets. I know that we can have temporal and eternal happiness on this earth and after if we listen to our leaders. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that family's can be together forever through Heavenly Fathers plan and I am thankful for the beautiful temples we have that make that possible. These are some of the many reasons why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Going to Family Home Evening (a church activity held on Monday nights for college students) was something I always looked forward to in my years at college. Getting to spend time with friends from the ward while doing service, playing games or a number of different things each week put a smile to my face. Prayer is very important to me. I love that we can talk to our Father in Heaven and express our gratitude and concerns to Him. He will listen to your prayers if you seek Him diligently. If we make an effort to do all we can, He will make up for the rest. I love the "For the Strength of Youth" pamphlet and the guidelines it gives so that I can better myself and more closely follow the commandment so one day I can live with Heavenly Father again.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony of our own is how we come to know individually the truth of the principles the church teaches. A testimony is knowing that Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ care about us and love us. A testimony is feeling peace and warmth that we have a prophet to guide us and that we can follow his counsel to become better. Show more Show less
