Hi I'm Lanie

I've lived In Texas all my life. I'm blind, mildly autistic, and have other problems, but my faith in Jesus gets me through it.

About Me

I am a college student at Brigham Young University Idaho online. I am studying for a Bachelor of Science in software engineering. I like to read, build ramps and mazes out of Lego's for marbles to roll through, take surveys for extra money, swim, work with technology, research things, learn (especially about technology, health, math, and science), do family history, play computer games, make things, spend time with family,listen to Christian music, play and snuggle with my dog, Squeaker, and socialize with friends on the Internet.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to become a Mormon because everything makes so much sense to me. I have always believed in modern-day prophets, but until I joined the church, I had never found a church that believed that. Also, I noticed that I became happier as I learned more about the Gospel. The Book of Mormon and other Scriptures really do just build on to what the Bible says. I also chose to become a Mormon because the first time I ever came to church, I really felt like I belonged. When I went to other churches, it felt like there was always something missing. When I walked into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, things felt complete.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by studying the Scriptures, praying, and doing church activities. I do family history work, go to church weekly, go to a Scripture study class once a week, and participate in many other activities. I also enjoy listening to Christian music and praising God.I also spoke at a stake meeting for new members and investigators and said the opening prayer at the Sunday morning session of stake conference. Recently, I was called to be a Family History Consultant. This means I teach others about family history.

What is the Book of Mormon?
