Hi I'm Lisa Robertson

I’m a wife and a mother – I love my family – and love my Mormon faith!

About Me

I’ve been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints all my life. I was baptised at the age of 8 years old and have had many wonderful experiences since this time. My parents and some of my siblings are also members of the church. My great grandmother and grandmother (on my mother’s side) joined the church in the 1930’s. My husband is also a member of the church and we were married and sealed in the London Temple in 1993. We have been blessed with 3 amazing children; 2 daughters and 1 son. Trying to live the teachings of the gospel is what help me to become a better wife and mother. We have endured a number of challenges along the way, but have always stayed close to the gospel of Jesus Christ, which has helped increase my testimony and carried me through difficult times. I have worked in a mainstream secondary school for over 10 years; working particularly with children on the autistic spectrum or who have Asperger syndrome. I enjoy my work and love seeing the progress they make along the way. I am so blessed to have amazing friends and colleagues, who are a great strength to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful to have a testimony of the church and all its teachings and know that there is no greater way to live your life than as a member of the Lord’s true church. We read the Book of Mormon daily as a family and I know that it’s teachings are true. I am grateful for the Bible and other books of scripture which we use and know that they are the words of our Heavenly Father. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints helps me to understand the purpose of life and allows me to have a sure knowledge of God’s plan for us. I am grateful that I have the opportunity to be with my family throughout the eternities.

How I live my faith

I have held many callings in the church over the years and enjoyed the experiences that each one has brought into my life and into the lives of those I have served. I currently work with the youth by teaching early morning seminary (5-days a week). This has to be one of my most intense callings yet; however, despite being physically tiring at times, my spirituality has increased 100-fold. I am almost half-way through my 3rd year of teaching seminary and can honestly say that it has taught me many things and helped strengthen my testimony. In the early 90’s I served a voluntary full-time mission for the church for 18-months in the England London Mission, where I had the privilege of serving with and teaching some fantastic people, who changed my life forever. I have been able to reflect on these memories over and over again and shared some of my experiences with others, which have strengthened me many times. I now have 2 nephews on full-time missions (one in Ghana and one in the Swiss-Alpine mission) and also have a niece leaving this week to serve in the Meza, Arizona mission. I know that the experiences that they will have, (good and bad) will bless their lives now and throughout the eternities. My son is making plans to serve a mission next year, as soon as he turns 18 and my eldest daughter is deciding if it is something that she too would like to do. It is a great opportunity for them.
