Hi I'm Lynn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 65 year old grandmother, married to a wonderful man I met online. We have been married for 3 years. I love to read, sew, bicycle & visit my children & grandchildren who live in 3 different states & at least 7 hours from my home. I am still working outside the home which leaves too little time for yard work, visiting family & relaxing. Fortunately, my husband does a lot around the house. I joined the Church in 1982 with only a tiny testimony but hopeful that I would learn a lot & my testimony would grow. The Church has changed my life & my lifestyle in too many ways to count - all for the better. When I asked a co-worker to tell me about the Church, he sent the missionaries to teach me & my family about the Gospel. 7 months later, we joined the Church. One of my sons decided he didn't want to join with us. My other son was 11 years old & followed our lead. My daughter was only 3 - too young to be baptized. Now my children are all grown, with children of their own. My oldest son never did join the Church & passed away in 2008 leaving 1 son. My younger son served a mission in San Diego & has 1 daughter. My daughter has been married in the Temple & has 3 sons & a daughter. My strongest desire is that we will all return one day to live with our Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ & be together as a family forever.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel has become a part of my life & lifestyle. Each week when I attend Church meetings, I am lifted, supposed & loved by the messages, lessons & the love of my friends. I hope I am serving my Heavenly Father & his children in a way that will be pleasing to Him.

How I live my faith

One thing that my husband & I decided the 1st week we were married was to commit to following the guidance of our Church leaders to set aside 1 evening each week to spend together as a family & to do a planned activity. We call that night "Family Home Evening". That commitment has turned into a regular Monday gathering of as many friends as we can fit in our home who share our beliefs or who are interested in coming. We study the Gospel, share our experiences in life, sometimes play games & have a lot of fun. These friends - who I didn't know 3 years ago - have become part of my family.
