Hi I'm Lynda

I'm a wife and a mom of 4. I live in a small town in Kentucky. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah, but currently live in Kentucky with my husband and our three kids. We used to live in Mississippi where both my husband and I attended college. Right now, I am blessed to be able to stay home with my kids. Besides spending time with my kids, I like to scrapbook and read. I also know American Sign Language (ASL) and enjoy teaching my children, as well as anyone else who would like to learn, how to sign.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church, but I do not think that is why I am mormon. As a teenager, I questioned everything. I had a lot of questions about life in general and the principles I had been learning from my parents and from attending church since a young child. Whenever I had a question, I was able to find an answer, either through reading scriptures, praying, or by asking a parent or church leader. Every answer I received this way always made sense to me and I just knew that the church was true. I have also read the Book of Mormon, and have prayed about it. The Holy Ghost has testified to me that it is true scripture. Every time I read the book, the Holy Ghost confirms to me that what I am reading is true. I know that anyone can receive that same witness if they read the Book of Mormon, with an open heart and mind and pray to know if the book is true. That is one thing growing up that I have always loved about the church, is that you are never told to just believe because someone tells you so, you can search out the answers yourself and feel the Holy Ghost testify to you that it is true. Nothing makes more sense and is more real than that. That is why I'm Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith like many others like me do, just trying to do my best every day. That usually includes praying and reading my scriptures daily, as well as attending church on Sunday and sometimes various other meetings during the week. I have served in my church doing a variety of things, many which include teaching youth and adults. The classes I have taught are usually scripture and gospel related topics. I currently serve in the Primary. The Primary is an organized program of religious instruction and activity at church for children from eighteen months to 11 years old. Its purpose is to teach children the gospel of Jesus Christ and help them learn to live it.
