Hi I'm Lacey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a big history buff. I studied Early Modern English history as an undergraduate and am currently studying English involvement in the Great War just for fun. I like to read the dry history books that most people ignore. I play the piano and organ. I'm a wife and mother. Before the birth of my daughter I worked as a government consultant for a firm in Washington, D.C. and as a contracts specialist for a private engineering firm. As a full time stay-at-home mom, I'm back to being a student--learning new things everyday from a tiny teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 20 I read the Book of Mormon. I was a college student and had noticed my roommate reading it. I was familiar with some of the Church's teachings but had never read the Book of Mormon for myself. As I read it, I felt the Holy Ghost whisper to my soul that it was filled with more than just proverbs and nice ideas. These were the teachings of Heavenly Father that outlined in great detail His plan for us and fine points of His doctrine. It was a profound experience of conversion and one that has committed me heart and soul to the revealed Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am continually impressed by how the Lord works. He has restored His complete church on the earth and every detail is a confirmation of His love for each of us individually. There is a way to return to live with our Heavenly Father and to have marriages and families that are for all eternity--not just till death do us part. It is through the authority of the priesthood that was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I read the Book of Mormon and the Holy Ghost testified to me that it contained the word of God. I am continually learning how I can become a better disciple of Christ but with the help of my Church leaders, a living prophet, the scriptures, and prayer I can return to live with Him.

How I live my faith

I serve as the organist for our congregation (ward) and as the choir pianist. I also help plan and organize events and activities for the women of our church. I visit two amazing ladies in our ward every month as a visiting teacher. In these meetings I have the privilege to get to know these ladies and what they may need from time to time--such as meals when they're sick or rides to the airport. I am also visited by my own visiting teachers who do the same for me.
