Hi I'm Dr. Lynn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, I am Dr. Steve R. Lynn. I am a pediatric dentist. I served as the president of my class for all four years in dental school and then completed a two-year specialty residency in pediatric dentistry. I will have been in private practice for twenty years very soon, but, previously I have been a registered medical technologist, certified clinical laboratory scientist, worked at seven different hospitals, been a member of a trauma team and a life-saving unit, auto salesman, business owner, carpenter, car repo man which was my least favorite dirty job, food service employee, sign company sales/production coordinator, service station attendant, hotel employee, laundry worker, and a newspaper delivery person. I am now also an educator for dental radiology and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager, I was very prayerful and I know the Lord helped me find the Church, or, He helped some very faithful missionaries find me. I worked alone at a hotel on the midnight shift. I was there praying one night and got up and walked to the back of the hotel office and saw a copy of the Book of Mormon. It had been left there by a former bishop from California. I felt a very strong impression to "read this book." I looked through the book and after reading the introductory pages and also reading a promise which was contained in the book that if one were to read with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, the Lord would then reveal the truthfulness of the book to the one reading and praying, I had a short prayer about it. I did not get an answer immediately, but eventually I got one that changed my life and that of my dear wife forever. The next day when I arrived home at my grandmother's house, I saw a copy of the Book of Mormon on her shelf as well. She was a good Christian lady who read from the Bible and prayed every day and had done so for many, many years. I asked my dear grandmother about this book on her shelf and she told me some missionaries had left it with her many years ago and that she had read it three times and believed every word in it. Soon, I was at our local swimming pool one day and saw two young men in white shirts and neckties looking through the fence there. I kept being drawn to them, for it seemed as if they had a glow about them. I did not speak to them that day, but, the next day I was kneeled down praying in my back bedroom and I arose from praying, looked out the kitchen window, and who do you think was walking down the road? Those same two missionaries. I was soon married to my high school sweetheart. One evening we were driving down the road and saw two missionaries. I invited them to come over to eat with us. They taught us and one evening after praying very sincerely the Holy Ghost bore witness it was true!

How I live my faith

I love sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a passion of mine. I know it is true and I want to help others come to know that for themselves. I credit the Lord for sending the good missionaries our way to help our family to be able to help others. Without the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life, none of the many good things we have enjoyed or been a part of would have happened. I once had put school on hold, had no goals, and was drifting. Then, the missionaries came and brought the gospel into my dear wife's and my lives, and then, miraculously, everything was really good. Now, we have a lasting and abiding peace, which was what I was really searching for when I began my quest of looking deeper into various religions. I have taught a Sunday School class at Church for many years and have also regularly visited many ward members in the capacity of being what is called, a "home teacher." I have tried to be faithful in this calling for nearly thirty-five years, only missing visiting some of my assigned families a few times.
