Hi I'm Lyndell Wiggins

I play basketball. I love movies. I love cars. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small town in North Carolina called Mount Olive. Contrary to what you would think, I am nowhere near the mountains but rather I am closer to the coast. I have a very close family. My grandparents and my uncle's family live on the same street as me, so we see a lot of each other. I love basketball, fishing, computers, and fast cars. I love to watch movies. A lot of movies. I have recently acquired the enjoyment of reading, which is always great because you learn so much; especially when you are reading about the Gospel. I plan to go to school after my mission and ultimately get my Law degree.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon. But that is not why I AM a Mormon. Like everyone that has a true testimony of this Church and Gospel (Member and Non-member) I had to find out for myself. I AM a Mormon because I have a testimony of it's truthfulness. I have a testimony of Joseph Smith, being the Lord's first prophet in these the Latter-Days. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ, being the Son of God and our Savior and Redeemer. I am a Mormon and I always will be because I have a testimony that my Heavenly Father loves me and loves all of His children and thus has given us more guidance and enlightenment through latter-day prophets.

How I live my faith

You know, I haven't always lived my faith the best that I could have. Don't get me wrong, I've never drank, smoked, or had a premarital sexual relationship, but before now I did all of those things because I had to. It was not until recently that I realized that these were commandments from God, not man, and that they bring innumerable blessings, especially when we do them out of love, not obligation. So, I still do all of the things I should: live the Word of Wisdom, live the Law of Chastity, and all the other commandments; but now it is so much easier because it is not something I have to do, but rather something that I want to do. I hope that someday I will be able to see all of the little blessing that come from obedience to the commandments of God, so that I may be sincere in my plea to God to give me more commandments, so as to receive more blessings from on High. So, in response to many questions, no, I do not feel bound or imprisoned, not even restricted. I feel liberated to know of a surety what God expects of me and of my Divine Potential to be more Christ-like everyday.
