Hi I'm Lacey

I grew up in a military family. I have an associates degree from BYU-I. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing the piano. I've been playing since I was about seven and I have taught several student. I love kids. I have recently been nannying for a family and I love it. I went to college at BYU-Idaho for two years. I have an Associates of Science degree in general studies from there. I've received my mission call and will be entering the MTC soon but when I get back from my mission I plan on going into a nursing program.

Why I am a Mormon

Actually, I was born and raised in the church and the faith just kind of stuck with me. I know that a lot of people have the "slap in the face" moment when they realize that this church is true and then they have a great conversion story as to why they decided to come to church. My story isn't a very dramatic one because really I've just always known that our church is true. I feel like I am lucky in that because gaining a testimony has never been a struggle for me, it's just always been there.

How I live my faith

The last calling I had in church was a teaching the three and four year olds and it was the best thing ever because it reminded me of all the basics of the church. I've played piano for the choir and for primary before. I've been a visiting teacher as well as a visiting teachee and it is a great program because having those people come visit you once a month is awesome because you know you have someone who cares about you.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Mormons use the King James version of the Bible. We believe it to be the most accurate version which is why we use it and it is the word of God as far as it has been translate correctly. Over the centuries the Bible has been translated over and over and over again in several differently languages so there are going to be errors or changes. It's like the game telephone, there is no avoiding those differences. Mormons also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. We believe that it is another testament of Christ. Both the Book of Mormon and the Bible can help you get to know and grow closer to God and Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
