Hi I'm Lynn Martin Isenbarger

I am a mother of six and grandmother of seven. I teach gifted kiddos, and have an Appaloosa mare. My husband is Craig.

About Me

After staying home for 16 years with our children, I got my teaching certificate and now teach gifted 4th and 5th graders. I LOVE to read and ride my bicycle; I also have a rescue horse named Abby. My husband and I have been married 36 years as of this writing - he is the love of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church when I was 17 and a senior in high school. I knew something was missing from my life, and I had been attending several other Christian churches looking for a church home. But none of them "felt" right, although I met some wonderful Christians who loved the Lord with all their hearts. When I visited the Mormon church, the feeling there was very different from other churches I had visited. The Spirit was so strong, and I started coming regularly. I read the New Testament and the Book of Mormon, and then I prayed to know if this was the Lord's true church. Before I could even finish my prayer, I had a soaring feeling in my heart - I KNEW this was His church and that I should join it. I was baptized and have been a faithful member ever since. I love the gospel and the Lord!

How I live my faith

My faith means everything to me. I read my scriptures every day and try to do something nice or helpful for someone else daily, too. Being a good example by trying to live as the Savior would have me do, and to follow His example, is very important to me. Serving at Church is another way I live my faith, whether it's speaking, teaching a lesson, or helping in another way. I love how I feel when I serve - it brings the Spirit close to my heart and I feel joyful. Being a Mormon isn't just a Sunday thing - we do our best to live every day the way we do on Sundays.
