Hi I'm Debie Lambson

I'm a mother of 7 to a blended family of 2 daughters and 5 sons. I am an executive in an insurance company and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My parents joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was 3 years old. I am the 3rd oldest in a large family and I love having so many siblings. My mother passed away when I was 13 years old and my dad raised us in the gospel. Although I have made many wrong choices in my life I am now married to a wonderful man who is obedient to the commandments. I have been in the insurance business for over 40 years and look forward to retirement when my husband and I can serve a mission for the Lord. I love to garden, read, spend time with my children and grandchildren and organize things almost to an obsession!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the restored church of Jesus Christ. I know that there are prophets on the earth today just like Moses, Noah and Isaiah that teach us that we are all sons and daughters of God and that He loves us and wants us to return to Him someday. Even though I was raised in this church, it took much study and prayer to understand how true and how precious the gospel is. I love the feeling of joy I receive when I am obedient to the commandments and know even though make mistakes I can be forgiven because of the atonement of my Savior.

How I live my faith

I currently am involved with the church's women's organization in the League City area. I have the opportunity to visit different congregations and meet many amazing women. I also am involved with an indexing program that digitizes records such as birth and death certificates, census records, ship manifests, etc that have been collected all over the world. This process of "indexing" makes it easier for anyone to do their geneology and find their ancestors. Where we come from is so important to knowing who we are.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Debie Lambson
I get this question a lot since I have always been a professional woman in an industry full of men. My husband and I counsel together about all major decisions for our family. He respects my opinions as I do his. In the church women are seen as equals to men and we are taught that we both have very important roles and responsibilities both in the church and in our family.
