Hi I'm Lynette Neslen

I grew up In Southeastern Idaho and have been a member of the Church all of my life.

About Me

I am widow and divorced mother of six children and a grandmother of 24 grandchildren. I love to read, take a walk in the first big snowstorm of the season, be with my grandchildren, and I love to shop and be with my friends and sisters. I have been a Social Worker since 1996 and also have worked with drug addicts as a counselor. I've also been an owner and instructor of my own dance studio with 300 students. I love nature especially the snow and the rain. I'm a big fan of happiness and positive thinking even when trials are harder than I think they are going to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a been a full time member of the Church all of my life. I couldn't have gone through my trials without the Spirit of the Lord in my life. Adversity is never easy and can wear us down. This is why the Spirit of the Lord is so important in our lives. The Holy Ghost is the mediator between our Savior and our Heavenly Father. I can go to my Father in Heaven in prayer and work through my challenges to get answers on what to do. He always comes through and I am so grateful. Without Baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost I wouldn't be able to access the Atonement to repent and let go to move forward. I want eternal life to live with my Heavenly Father. No unclean thing can dwell in his presence. So I'm grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the Godhead in my life every day.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life, the gospel of Jesus Christ has been very important to me. I have been actively engaged helping the youth in their activities and enjoying their friendship. I have also worked with the women in the Church teaching lessons about how to be a happier and better mother and woman. I have played the organ and the piano for different meetings and also led the congregational music. It's always a pleasure to serve and organize programs and different meetings that allow special speakers to come and deliver messages of love, hope and faith. As a visiting teacher, I have enjoyed making new friends and supporting each other when needed. I have worked as a substance abuse counselor assisting my brothers and sisters with resources and support through maintaining sobriety. I created a family support group to educate family members how to deal with their loved ones addiction. Life is not suppose to be easy and that's why we need to help each other along our journey's.
