Hi I'm George Lyden Jr

I am Tongan. I am a Child of God. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Elder Lyden that's my name don't wear it out. I love the Gospel. I love the outdoors. I am currently serving in Spokane Washington. And I'm a Mormon. Yeuhh!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the lds church. It doesn't mean I was born perfect. I have had big amounts of trials in my life. And with these trials I have been very blessed with this gospel in my life. It has been a guideline and a great example for me to be strong and that we are not all perfect or lost. But with this beautiful gospel of Jesus Christ it has been a light through the dark tunnel. It has saved my life from being someone I am not and realizing who I am, A child of god. With this gospel I learned that I will see my younger brother again and not to lose hope. This gospel has comforted me through hard times. It hasblessed me in so many ways. And this is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example of our savior Jesus Christ by helping those who need help or following his attributes which include love and kindness etc. I read and study my scriptures daily and diligently because I know without exercising my faith there would be no proof of my faith. I would be what other people would say, "all talk." I pray when I wake up, as a family, and before I sleep. Attend church every Sunday. And i am preparing to serve an honorable full time mission to help our brothers and sisters return to our heavenly father and into his kingdom.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

George Lyden Jr
Family is such a wonderful blessing. To bring new life into this world. To help us feel loved and complete.We learn, love, and are there for each other. We share a lot of happiness and sorrow that we can't with others. It is part of gods plan of happiness he has for us. Show more Show less

What is the Law of Chastity?

George Lyden Jr
God wants us to have sexual relations with our spouse that we are legally married to because the power to bring children of god down to this world is very sacred in marriage. By participating in sexual relations before marriage you can lose safety, happiness, peace, and self-respect. In marriage you want to love your spouse forever and saving it for marriage will deepen your love for your spouse and love eternally. If you've broke the law of chastity it is a serious situation. But if you have broken it, you are able to be forgiven and be happy and live in peace through the process of repentance and obedience. God wants the best for us and more. Following his plan will make you and your family live happily ever after. Show more Show less

What is faith?

George Lyden Jr
Faith to me is believing something without seeing it. Like air we can't see it but we know its there. Our brains we can't see it but we know its there. I have faith that heavenly father lives. Everyday you act upon hope for a better life and a great future this is similar to faith. Faith in god is more that a belief. We trust him we show that we love him by exercising our faith.
