Hi I'm Lexa

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am typically atypical, a mom of four wonderfully hyperactive children who teach me how to be a mother. My husband regularly finds my keys, phone, and shoes for me, sometimes because I forget where I put them, most of the time because the children move them somewhere else. I enjoy baking, learning from all subjects in life, music in all forms, gardening, and meeting new people and seeing life from their perspective and the lessons they can teach me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church, but found my own testimony late in life. As a teenager and young adult I was often afraid I couldn't feel the spirit because I didn't cry during testimony meetings, and that I was unworthy of receiving answers to my prayers. It was only as I received more promptings as a mother and wife that I realized that the spirit spoke to me through pure knowledge, thoughts that were so absolute, I couldn't argue logically through them. I have been guided and protected by our Heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost and know that he has a plan for me, if I listen closely to the promptings to follow it.

How I live my faith

I am currently the 2nd Counselor in our Primary Presidency. I find my own testimony grow as I bear witness to them the simple gospel truths of faith, repentance, baptism, and my experiences with the Holy Ghost. I am often touched by the spirit the children bring to primary, the perfect balance of joy and sacredness.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

To bear testimony of something is the speak the truth of something as you know it to be true. When the spirit bears testimony to you and you accept that testimony, it is pressed into your heart and mind with absolute knowledge. It is by these small steps of knowledge that our own testimony grows. As we understand the gospel principles and apply them in our lives, we can see the Lord guiding our lives. We grow closer to our Heavenly Father and can bear testimony of the fact that these things are a reality; that our lives were indeed blessed because we were obeying His commandments and the continual influence of God in our lives.
