Hi I'm Cynthia Lynn Robertson

I am 39 yr old widow woman of the 3 great kids. We are all proud to be Mormons, from Alabama.

About Me

Hello everyone, my name is Cynthia. I am a 39 yr old widow woman with 3 wonderful kids, Faith 15, J.D. 17, and Cody 20. I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints May 24, 1992. My two youngest joined last summer, and finally, Sept. 21 my oldest was Baptized and then Confirmed on his 20th Birthday. I am so proud of my guys. My whole family including my parents and my little sister are also members. But for about 20 yrs I lost my may, made a lot of bad decisions in my life. But through it all my Savior never left my side. I prayed and prayed for the answers I needed. so that I could find my way back home. The Lord led me back home to the place I was baptized.To my Church family. I am so happy, and overjoyed to be back where I belong. The best thing of all is our Church is right next to our Birmingham Temple. So anytime, I ride down the road or go to Church, I look at the Temple and it reminds of the Covenants I made with my Heavenly Father, how great a blessing it will be to someday be able to go into the Temple, and be sealed with my family for all time. Thank you my Lord Jesus Christ, for always keeping me safe and leading back home where I belong. Amen.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was growing up I went to several different Churches, but I always felt like something was missing in my life and in the gospels. When I first started taking my discussions from the Elders of our Church. Something inside me spoke out, I had the overwhelming feeling of joy and happiness to know that this Church believed as I did, the lessons touched me and awakened the Holy Spirit that dwelled within my heart. When I first started going to our church services, and talking to the many different people there, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that this was truly the one true Church of Jesus Christ. I may have lost my way in my adult years, but my Heavenly Father never gave up on me, he brought me home.

How I live my faith

I try to get to Church every Sunday morning to partake of the sacrament. I try and read my scriptures every day by myself, and with my family. I share my testimony with friends online and out in the real world. I try and be a sister to all, by helping my family and my friends, and my church family. I give thanks to my Heavenly Father every minute of the day, I struggle to keep the Word of Wisdom. I am disabled now, but I still try to get my tithing paid like I should, I enjoy reading my scriptures, and my lessons in the Gospel Principles, and in the Relief Society. I always ask my Heavenly Father for Guidance and strength every single day and night, so that I may stay on the straight and narrow. I never want to fell alone and vulnerable like I was for so long, I am home now where I know I should be, I will be an even better Mormon than I was so long ago.I have faith in Jesus Christ and know that his will shall be done. Faith, love, and charity. I know through Jesus Christ all things are possible.
