Hi I'm Lynne Elizabeth

About Me

I live in Canada. I am single. I have worked with children in one capacity or another most of my life and am now semi retired.

Why I am a Mormon

I worked with a woman who is a member and was struck by what I saw in her. We worked on a university campus and she would go over to the church's university building and take a Book of Mormon class on her lunch hour twice a week. This intrigued me so I asked her more about it and then invited her to come to my home and tell me more about her faith. Here I am today active and grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ 36 years later. When I watched my co worker I saw in her a light and received a feeling that there was something special in her life that I wanted. in mine. Something drew me strongly to question her about it. I am so gtrateful that she lived her life in a Christlike way because as a result my life has been filled with joy. It hasn't always been easy but it has ALWAYS been worth it. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true, that Joseph Smith truly saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and they did indeed talk with him. I know the Book of Mormon has a message in it for us today and that if we follow the counsel found therein we can be assured of guidance and blessings from God.

How I live my faith

I have had a callng, or job, in the church since I was first baptized. Currently I am working in the program that helps children learn more about God and Jesus Christ. I have been a teacher in Sunday school, the woman's organization, and in the young woman's program. In each instance I am sure that I have learned more than I would have had I not been offered the opportunity to serve. I also served a mission of 18 months in Japan as a proselyting missionary and would do it again at the drop of a hat.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Lynne Elizabeth
As a member I do not want you to accept the truthfulness of what we teach just because we say it is so. You must know for yourself that what we teach is true. In order to do that the first step is to learn about the Gospel of Jesus as taught by the missionaries. They will go through a series of lessons with you in order to give you the information you need. As they teach you I hope that you will take the opportunity to ask God himself if what they teach you is true. I promise that if you ask with sincere faith and real intent you will come to know for yourself what is the truth. This will come as a feeling, perhaps of hearing something that is familiar, or that "fits" somehow. God wants us to know for ourselves and will answer your prayers. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Lynne Elizabeth
In church we learn and share and serve each other in a public way. Attending church each Sunday gives the opportunity to renew ourselves spiritually in order to withstand the temptations the world sets before us. It also gives us the wondruos opportunity of remembering the Saviour and re-committing to follow the path He has laid out for us. In the Temple we worship more privately. We learn further what it means to be a child of God and about the plan He provided to help us return to Him. Many who are not members think that secret things are done inside the Temples. These things are not secret but sacred and one must be living a life worthy of the blessings found within the walls of the Temple. Show more Show less
