Hi I'm Lynn Jaros

I am the mother of three and the grandmother of 13. I am a Registered Respiratory Therapist, recently retired, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 63 years old and married to my wonderful husband for almost three years now. We are a blended family with five children between us and thirteen grandchildren. We love celebrations that bring us all together. In my spare time I like to bake, read, and take long walks. I look forward to spending time with my children and my grandchildren, making memories. i also write in a journal, keeping a history to pass to generations yet to be born.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a young girl, my parents took me to church. They dropped me off at the front door and picked me up at the back door, but they did not attend. When I was 12 years old I asked the minister "How can God be three persons in one?" He couldn't answer my question. Many questions went unanswered. As a result of the confusion, I began to search for the answers. In 1986 I suffered a terrible loss. During my grief a close business associate gave me a Book of Mormon. He asked me to read, ponder, and pray about what I read, to know if the book was true. I did, and I felt a comfort like I had never known before. I knew I was finally finding answers to all the questions I had. I also felt at peace and was able to accept my loss and move ahead, knowing all would be well. I have never looked back with regret, but instead have found that our Heavenly Father has a plan of happiness for us, in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I now live my life knowing I will return to live with Him again, and that brings much happiness to my life.

How I live my faith

I serve in our Church, by helping others to increase in faith and righteousness, strengthen families, and seek out and help those in need. I also visit and teach other Sisters in our Church. By visiting with them in their homes, relationships are forged and lasting friendships are made. We can become aware of the needs of our members and together work to the same end.

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

I believe that God would never leave us alone with no prophet on the earth to guide and direct us. Show more Show less
