Hi I'm Lori Lynn

I teach, I volunteer, I love my family, I am Mormon

About Me

I love to be involved in things that have an impact on my life. I taught school for a number of years before my 3 children were born. and I now try and volunteer at my son's school, I am a resident manager and I often babysit other children in our community. I am married to an amazing man and we love enjoying family time especially when it means we get to go camping. We live in Canada, and can explore seemingly untouched beautiful landscapes.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grandparents who joined the church back in the 1930's, and I also have a Mormon pioneer lineage. It is their stories and faith that strengthen my belief, but I learned for myself that being Mormon isn't just about who my family is. Being a Mormon is about what I believe, and what I choose to do with those beliefs. I believe in Christ and I follow his teachings.

How I live my faith

I try my best to make goals that help me improve my family's and my well being. I live and help people in my community and I have the opportunity to associate with many neighbors of different cultures and faiths. I was taught to try to be involved, and to help people no matter who they are. Other than being a regular neighbor, or PTA mom, I also help work with the children(18 months to 11 yrs) at church. This includes being a cub scout leader, and helping in other children activity nights. I regularly visit with friends form church who have common interests, or perhaps those who I can visit with just to talk. I like to chat.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Lori Lynn
There are many types of Mormon women, just as there are many types of women.... But I know we are encouraged to be quite exceptional. My Husband and I are equal partners in our marriage. We do have different jobs or roles, but our strengths and weaknesses balance our marriage, or family and our relationship with God. Mormon women are encouraged to be strong, educated, and compassionate women. Our talents and abilities are what make our families strong. I know as a Mormon woman my goal is to be in family that will be happy, healthy, and responsible citizens. If I expect my children to be exceptional in this world, then I try to set that example.
