Hi I'm lynnda

I'm a Mormon. I'm always trying to make the world a better place.

About Me

Most people tell me I am a walking miracle! I am not because of my own strength but because of the great faith i have in the lord Jesus Christ Living in a hospital for 6 months having to go to a nursing home and be visited by your parents is something out of a fictions novel. However, this was my trial in my life I endured and help me to become a strong woman of faith . I am a single mom of 7 vibrant kids who remind me each day I am very alive ! Having survived a traumatic brain injury a heart attack and blood clots to the lungs 3 times i knew i cheated death and that my Heavenly father has a plan for me on the earth ... I run and walk now and have traded in my wheelchair and walker for a new lease on life. When I meet people who are suffering and they say you' d never be able to relate I tell them not only my story but the story of the great faith I have in the lord Jesus Christ and how he can transform our lives and through his atonement he has bore all our pain and suffering. With his love, I am a singer, a cook, a community leader, a soccer grandma mom and a Mormon .`

Why I am a Mormon

Having a strong religious background and being a daughter of a pastor taught me at an early age to study, fast and pray if I wanted answers to anything. I was a bible scholar and ended up going to a bible college where mostly men study to become pastors. I was given an assignment to study Mormonism as i was taught as a young child i fasted and prayed to see if what was reading was true , it being the book of Mormon. never before had I felt such great Joy and peace. never before had my questions been answered about the divinity of the savior Jesus Christ and what great worth my soul was, most importantly I knew where I came from and where I was going! It also was apparent to me the book of Mormon did not replace the bible but was the stick of Judah long foretold in the bible that would come forth . Today I proclaim his gospel upon the earth to all I come in contact with. I am an ambassador for Christ I stand as a witness of him that he is the Redeemer of the world he is the light in a very dark world and the light that illuminates dark places even in our own lives. He brings hope where there is misery, and devastation. His words are in the book of Mormon which stands as a second witness of him. I live the words Paul spoke thousand of years ago For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

How I live my faith

I am forever on a mission , I love feeding the missionary's and passing out book of Mormon's in all languages. I have a daughter who loves to speak Russian so we sometimes try to read the book of Mormon in Russian ! Family home evening is the best part of the week and if we fail to have it (which usually never happens ) someone calls me on it! I work with gang members and most people tell me I must have angels surrounding me. I love them, they are my brothers and sisters and with this love they feel from me, I am able to steer them in a different direction then where they are headed. I love visiting teaching to see my sisters and show them they are loved and never forgotten . I am usually found at a food bank volenteering or organizing a comunity clean up or planning a teens night out volenteering at my kids schools .. I believe in making a differnce and making the world a better palce for all , My faith has been a great insiration for me to continue in these endevorers inspite of what obstacles lie in my path.
