Hi I'm Lisa Starr

I'm an apartment manager. I'm a mom. I am a Life and Business Coach. I work hard everyday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn. I love to travel. I have many dreams of the type of lifestyle I want to have in my future. I want to have a large home. I want to have a family and a career simultaneously. I love to be out in nature. I graduated from college, but don't plan to stop learning. I'm a mother of one with one on the way. I work as an apartment manager so I can work and take care of my children. I love to spend time with family, but I also love to spend time alone. My husband is a movie buff.

Why I am a Mormon

I think I've always known what I believe religiously. I know that God lives and that Jesus Christ died for us. Most of all, I know that God loves us, no matter what we've done or haven't done in our lives. I know that He wants me to be with Him forever. I've chosen to remain a member because it provides me with such freedom. It's strange to think that being a Mormon with so many rules and guidelines provides so much freedom, but all the rules and restrictions I know are just there because knows dangerous pitfalls. SO much heartache for my family and I can be avoided by following God's guidelines. I know that He only gives us rules because HE LOVES US.

How I live my faith

I love to simply live my faith daily by being kind to neighbors and helping them when they need it. I don't force others to believe what I believe, but I invite others to know what I know to be true. I share my beliefs when appropriate. I like to be of service since I know that's what Christ would be doing if He were on the earth today.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Lisa Starr
Yes. It's the most wonderful part of the Book of Mormon that brings so much unity with the Bible. There are even many things Jesus teaches while in the Americas that He taught while He was on the earth in Jerusalem. I KNOW He came to the Americas since He loves ALL of His children SO much!
