Hi I'm Lamell

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in Arizona and have lived here all my life. My passion is collecting things from the past.

About Me

I am married and am the father of five duaghters. I have nine grandkids and one more on the way. I like to build furniture out of old wood and old ceiling tin. Two or three times year I go to Kansas to buy antiques. I sell the antiques and furnitue in local shops and to people who know and like my work. I like what I do so much that it just seems like fun instead of work. Last year I got to build Santa's Workshop for a company that was creating a "north pole experience" for kids and their families. That gave me a chance to be really creative.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but my father was not active so I did not attend church as a child. In high school, a friend got me going. I attended Seminary and that's where my testimony got started. When I was 19 1/2 I decided I wanted to go on a mission. I was called to Canada. My mission put the seal on my testimony. I learned that the Gospel of Jesus Christ was true. I Know that the gospel is here for our good. When Jesus Christ was on the earth, everything He did was for the purpose of helping others. When we help others we become better people and more like the Savior. If we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we will become the people we were meant to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be kind and helpful to others. I stay close to my family. I do the things I am asked to do in the church, because then I am serving other people. When you are helping other people, it actually helps you even more, because when you are in the service of your fellow man, you are in the service of God. No matter what you do, either good or bad, it always comes back to you.

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are more Christian than most. The whole church is founded on the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is His church here on earth. Show more Show less
