Hi I'm Lisa

I'm a wife, mother of 4, massage therapist. I have bipolar. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently my biggest role in life is to be a mother to young people. Sometimes it can be crazy and frustrating and other times it's beautiful. I'm also a massage therapist and I love being in touch with others. I like promoting whole health and wellness, and studying nutrition is one of my hobbies. I love music and I play the flute. I have a brain difference called bipolar and it takes a great deal to manage bipolar/maintain health and at the same be a wife and mother. A lot of focus here! I know having bipolar is part of God's plan for me and it will build faith in Jesus Christ and help me help others who also battle brain differences.

Why I am a Mormon

Wow! There are so many reasons I'm a Mormon... My parents are of the Mormon faith and I have always been an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Although I was born into the faith, I received my own witness of God my Father, my Saviour Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit piece by piece in my own way and in God's time. I had a different but not uncommon childhood. 33% of we women experience childhood sexual abuse or assault. I'm part of the 33% and experienced abuse from the age of 5 until I was 9. Painful! It was during those dark times of pleading with the Lord to understand why this was happening that I received my first recognizable witness that I am a Child of God and that He has a plan for me. The Holy Spirit gave that witness and comfort. I'm so thankful to my parents who taught me this and took me to Church weekly so this truth was confirmed through song. This knowledge saves my life everyday. Throughout my life, the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Priesthood power and authority, the importance of temple worship and family are confirmed by the Holy Spirit. God gives me daily small and simple miracles to let me know I am His and reassure me that I have a personal mission to fulfill. To me, the Mormon Church just makes sense.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in Jesus Christ by home-making and nurturing my children. President Harold B. Lee taught, “The most important of the Lord’s work you will ever do will be within the walls of your own homes.” In my home I have the opportunity to influence and help shape my children's lives. Right now, I'm a volunteer in an LDS chartered Cub Scout Program to support my son in Cub Scouts. Other than that my service is simple.
