Hi I'm Lisa McIntyre

After 20 years of investigating, and putting it off, and letting life get in the way, I can finally say, "I am a Mormon".

About Me

I am a divorced mother of two beautiful children, one with autism. It hasn't always been easy.....in fact sometimes it's been downright hard, but since joining the church in June 2014, I have learned that I am not alone. This is nothing more than a test, and Heavenly Father has and will continue to give me the tools I need to pass.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been inside the buildings of a lot of denominations and faiths. I have enjoyed them all and met really great people. But it wasn't until I spent some time in the Mormon church and with missionaries that I finally felt like I got the full gospel of Jesus Christ...I finally felt "home". I have investigated the church, of and on, for 20 years. It wasn't until I was about to be divorced, living with my two children, and having spent my entire adult life as an agnostic, that I found myself feeling the most lonely and the most disconnected in my life. Having looked back on things I'd done in my past, I thought I was too far gone to be saved. Then I learned of Jesus Christ's atoning sacrifice. The he did that for me. And for you. Because of the atonement, I AM saved. I AM clean. I can begin anew. Now, I have never felt more connected to my spiritual brothers and sisters, on this amazing journey through Heavenly Father's plan of happiness and salvation.

How I live my faith

"Live in such a way that people who know you but don’t know Christ will want to know Christ because they know you”. I strive to be a good example of a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint. I love the structure and community of the church. I participate in our weekly Book of Mormon study and I organize the music for our women's group, known as the Relief Society. Studying and praying about our hymns has taught me a lot about faith and Heavenly Father's love for all of us.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

I think people sometime find it easy to malign something they don't understand. There are some differences. Mormon's definition of the godhead is different than most other Christian faiths, however....spend some time talking to a Mormon. You will find that at the center of our beliefs is the love and belief that Jesus Christ is our savior. That he sacrificed his life for ours and we love and worship him and no other. You will find that you have more in common with Mormons than you ever knew. Show more Show less
