Hi I'm Larry Lynch
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I joined the church when I was 53 years old.
I am a divorced parent with 5 children. My grand children number eight. I was divorced many years before I joined the church. My hobby is playing golf and enjoy watching all sports. I recently finished college. Gaining an education has been a plus for me and I found that I have a greater capcity to learn than when I was much younger. I live close to two of my children. The other three are scattered. Exercising is in my plan of action and I feel it is a life long program and will add years to my life.
Why I am a Mormon
My living began at the age of 53. This was the year that my old life ceased and I truly was born again. It was a miracle to me as I went from a state of doubt to that of joy. I know that our Heavenly Father and his Son appeared to Joseph Smith. I believe this because it was manifested to me by the Holy Ghost who is the great educator and messenger of our Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ. I know without this I would be an ordinary person seeking the truth. Having a testimony of the truthfullness of the gospel is the gift promised us on our road to happiness. The last 17 years have been filled with joy of a spiritual person and not of a natural person. I know that God wants us to worship him in the spirit which makes me understand why a natural person will not receive such blesings. I am forever thankful to a member of the church that sent missionaries to me. I know that he didn't convert me but was a tool in bringing me to the gospel. A feeling of contentment of where I am on the road of eternal progression offers me the peace that the scriptures talk about..especially the 23rd Pslam. If someone offered me a trillion dollars to refute my testimony I would not be tempted to take it. My religion is who I am and I know people because of it. Although I can not give away my testimony to others I will help them find their way and pray that they might be converted through the great comforter, the Holy Ghost. I share this with you, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen..
How I live my faith
I live my faith as having received a gift from Heavenly Father. My faith creates many opportunities to learn the gospel by believing what is being brought to me. I have found that relying on my faith I leave my mind and heart open to things that enrich my testimony. A testimony is only gained by faith and I try to live my life in a manner where I am wothy of receiving more. If I choose to believe what I think is truth as I did in my other religion I know I am not increasing my faith. My present calling is as a Ward Missionary and as the male single adult representative.
