Hi I'm Lissie

I Grew up in Anaheim, CA! Currently serving as a Spanish Missionary in the Idaho, Twin Falls mission!

About Me

I grew up in Anaheim, California! On the warm sandy beaches of Newport, the beautiful sunsets, the fireworks of Disneyland and the beautiful city scapes of Anaheim. I've played saxophone for about 10 years now, and play other various instruments. I studied for a year and half in Cedar City, Utah. Majoring in Forensics and Music. I love to play the guitar, surf(not the best), build sandcastles, go spelunking, swim, explore, hike and basically I just love everything about life! I've had a few close calls, but despite the trials I look forward to my future with my family, the Lord has blessed me so much that I've been chosen to serve him as a full time missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the gospel, I knew nothing else but the gospel. When I turned 8 and I was preparing to get baptized I decided that I needed to find my own true testimony. Up until then I had lived by "borrowed light". I prayed and read the book of Mormon as fervently as I could and found my testimony one day. Nothing in my life has ever been so crystal clear. I know for a fact that the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is the one true church. Without of shred of doubt I can testify that this church is true, and the gospel that goes with it. I am Mormon because of the feeling I have in my heart and mind when I speak about the gospel. I am Mormon because I have a firm purpose of sharing it with everyone I know because I want them to have what I have, an eternal family and all the promises that go with it. I am Mormon because I live it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living by my testimony, meaning that I like to show my testimony by serving others,teaching kids and the youth. I live my faith by being a good example to my neighbors and family and friends. I hope that by showing others how I live my faith that they can seek out their own testimonies and live their faith too.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We proselyte because of a prophet of the Lord has called us to serve our Savior and Redeemer and our Heavenly Father. We wake up every morning with the Lord on our side, ready to share the gospel we know and love. We sometimes get people who don't want to hear the gospel there's always one who is ready to hear the gospel, thankful for the Lord showing them someone who will help them find the path back to our heavenly father. That is our purpose, why we wake up a 6 in the morning, to help others come unto Christ, that they may return to the presence of our Father in Heaven and their families for all eternity.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Faith starts with us, if we have a desire to increase our faith and act by reading the scriptures,serving others,develop Christlike attributes, and follow the commandments, Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ will see our efforts and we shall be blessed eternally. Our Heavenly Father is waiting to bless us because he loves us! We just have to reach out our hearts, minds,and lives to him and he will help us! Show more Show less
