Hi I'm Rissa

I grew up in Utah. I have been a nurse for a long time. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a nurse for over 20 years. I have 4 fur-kids--2 dogs and 2 cats. I enjoy gardening, reading, baking and learning very much.

Why I am a Mormon

I was in the church as a child and young adult, but then when I didn't get married it seemed like I didn't belong anymore, so I was not active. I did not ever leave the church, it was more like I was outside on the grass. This year I have experienced an awakening on many levels, and am now back to church regularly, and doing what I need to do in order to follow Christ's teachings to the best of my ability. I have always been greatly blessed, and am now even more blessed in all ways. I often think that it would take the rest of my life to count the blessings I have had up until today. My family recently let my father go Home, and that has been difficult, but I know where he is and that he is well taken care of and that I will get to see him again. I cannot imagine going through the death of a loved one without the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I read the Book of Mormon, the Bible or writings of past and current Church leaders every day. I pray at least every day. I try to apply what I learn from these things to all areas of my life.
