Hi I'm Lacey

I'm a substitute teacher. I love candy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Lacey! I'm currently a twenty-something year old who lives in sunny Florida. I was born in rural Georgia where my parents were both members of the Church, however my own conversion story has developed over my lifetime. My favorite things include: spending time with my family, traveling over the world with my husband and making unique crafts for my home. I jokingly refer to myself as an "eternal student" and hope to finish my Bachelor's degree in Special Education in the near future. I've worked as a substitute teacher, nanny and babysitter- I have a passion for helping children. I love having a plan for my life, but sometimes discovering what Heavenly Father has in store for is much more humbling and exciting.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that it is true by personal revelation. I am so blessed. Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost have been with me throughout every wonderful or depressing moment. They have never forsaken me, only built me up after I put forth even the minutest amount of effort. Perhaps my favorite aspect of The Gospel is that is offers me a life of eternal happiness with those who I love most (my God, my Savior, my family and my spouse). It helps me to become a better person, daily, if I abide by its' principles. I know that the scriptures are the true word of God; everything works together to strengthen each part of a person. I have a testimony that Joseph Smith was indeed, and still is, a true prophet of God. I know that our current prophet Thomas S. Monson speaks as the mouthpiece today. I would be nothing without my testimony. I try daily to be a true disciple of Christ, because that is what I most hope to achieve in my life.

How I live my faith

Prayer: that is the biggest way that I relate to the gospel. I have never seriously asked a question without receiving an answer. I also set a goal to read my scriptures each day. It is so amazing how I can always turn to them with problems (even if I don't ask for help) because I'm always supplied with help. As for other daily activities I try to take a daily inventory of my emotions/ characteristics and see how I felt about those. If I find myself being discouraged or unhappy I try to work on those to increase my own personal happiness. My lay membership in the church had included working with the primary aged children, the 18-30 year olds, the young women and working to helping out a specific set of sisters assigned to me.
