Hi I'm Lee

I have lived in Lincoln for 40 some years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Genoa Nebraska. I was a member of the Congregational Church. Growing up, I had a job as a beekeepers helper. After I graduated from high school, I entered the U.S. Navy. I spent a lot of time in the far east and the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. I am a jazz pianist and entertained and still do today. I met my wife in Denice in Columbus Nebraska. She was from Ord NE. She is a member of the church. We came to Lincoln and were married in the church at 56th and Vine St in 1968. I attended UNL and finished my education at Sal Salido College in Scottsdale AZ. We have 5 childred and many grand and great grandchildren. I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1969. I was sealed to my wife for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. All of my family were sealed to me in the Denver CO. Temple.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it and know it is true. It is another testament of Jesus Christ.I know that Heavenly Father lives and is the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob and the ruler of this Universe, all within and this Earth. I know that his only begotten Son is our Redeemer and Savior and my friend. He knows who I am and all about me as he does each one of us. He loves us and atoned for our sins so that we may return to live eternally with Him, our Heavenly Father and our family if we but live the principles of the gospel. So, I know where I came from, why I am here, where I am going from here.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to honor my covenants made at baptism, attend all of my meetings, attend the Temple often, read my scriptures and pray often. I also live my faith by testifying of Jesus Christ, bearing my testimony, and do missionary work. I have completed 6 generations of my genealogy and had us sealed in the temple. I help and serve others by givng a full tithe and giving a generous fast offering. I visit the sick and elderly. I try to honor my calling in the church by doing the best that I can. I love all of my brothers and sisters, members and non members. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

How do I know the book of Mormon is true? When I pray, he Holy Spirit whispers that it is true. I also ponder and pray about its history studying books on the ancient ruins of Central America that give living proof that these events did happen. How do I know that there is a God? I know by praying and studying the scripture and let the Holy Spirit attest to these things. How do I know that Jesus is the Christ, the only begotten of the Father./ By the same way as above mentioned. By the Holy Spirit. How do I know that Joseph Smith was and still is a Prophet of God? By reading the Book of Mormon and praying and listening to the Holy Spirit. There are maybe hundreds of questions that can best be answered by the whispering of the Holy Spirit, not of men, per se/ How do I know that we are led by a Prophet of God today who's name is Thomas S. Monson. I know because I have heard him speak, my Heavenly Father says that he is and again by the Holy Spirit.   Show more Show less
