Hi I'm Lisa (Lis-for short. ;D)

I grew up in a small town in AZ and have lived in 6 different states since graduating.I love my soldier and 2 kiddos.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I am Lisa, a proud mommy of two (and another sweet little one on the way!!), and a wife to the most incredible husband. I'm an army wife and have loved the adventures of being in the military. We love moving around and getting to meet many new people and experience new places. I grew up in a small town in Arizona and have five sisters. Our family had three exchange students live with us and they are definitely considered permantent part to our family. I love art and photography and am looking forward to the opportuinty to go to college and continue my education. Basically, I just love my life and am so very thankful for the people I know and love and for who I am today.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ all of my life, and not because this what was forced upon me, but because I know the the gospel is true. The gospel today is exactly how it was when Jesus lived upon the earth. We have a prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, to guide and direct us in our challenges today as well as the twelve apostles.

How I live my faith

In our church, I am in the nursery, taking care of the little ones while the moms and dads can go to their various classes after Sacrament meeting. I also team teach with a sister in the church, the eight through eleven year olds. This is called Achievement Days where every other week we get together for an hour and have a little lesson followed by a fun activity. A typical week for our family is going to church on Sunday, Family Home Evening on Monday nights, Achievement Day activity, family scripture study, personal scripture study, morning and night family prayers, and just simply trying to do the best that we can.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Lisa (Lis-for short. ;D)
We are to donate 10% of our income to help forward to the work of the Church. "Tithing is not so much a matter of dollars as it is a matter of faith." -President Gordon B Hinkley. I honestly love paying tithing because I know that my family and I are always being blessed for doing so. The Lord has given us SO much, the least we could do is to give 10% back.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Lisa (Lis-for short. ;D)
We as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints do not practice polygamy. President Gordon B. Hinckley, prior president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made the following statement in 1998 about the Church’s position on plural marriage: “This Church has nothing whatever to do with those practicing polygamy. They are not members of this Church.... If any of our members are found to be practicing plural marriage, they are excommunicated, the most serious penalty the Church can impose. Not only are those so involved in direct violation of the civil law, they are in violation of the law of this Church.” At various times, the Lord has commanded His people to practice plural marriage. For example, He gave this command to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, and Solomon (Doctrine and Covenants 132:1). At other times the Lord has given other instructions. In the Book of Mormon, the Lord told the prophet Jacob “for there shall not any man among you have save it be one wife: and concubines he shall have none... for if I will, saith the Lord of Hosts, raise up seed unto me, I will command my people; otherwise they shall hearken unto these things (Jacob 2:27-30). I do not understand polygamy but strive to have faith that the Lord knows what He is doing when He has called those to practice plural marriage. Show more Show less
