Hi I'm Lucille Lanje

I was born and raised in the Ozarks of Arkansas. I'm studying to be a pediatric nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a very outgoing person. I love to do any activity that involves nature and sports. I am in school, or currently was, studying nursing. I want to be a pediatric nurse since I love kids. Right now, I am a teacher at a day care. I like to sing and dance, anywhere. I can sing for a whole day, but I'll probably be annoyed with everyone else at some point hearing my own voice all the time. I'm very outspoken. I say what comes to mind and I tell it like it is. I love honesty, so I thought "why not be honest" right? I take pictures on the side just for fun, but nothing serious. I love my family! They are my best friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe. I have faith in this church. I never gotten baptized or learned about his Gospel until I became Mormon. And to this day I know more than I ever have before. I know that this faith has helped, not just me, but my family and I so much. Family is the base of this church, this religion, and it's changed our family since we have all gotten baptized. Not only that, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has brought me so much more closer to Heavenly Father than I have ever felt before. I feel tingles when I enter the temple, I feel tingles when I even see the temple, or hear about the Gospel. Those feelings, they're amazing. I know, without a doubt, that this church is true. I want to go to the Celestial Kingdom and return to Heavenly Father, which is why I continue and try my hardest to follow His commandments. My life has changed and it's all because I've opened a door to another experience. I didn't want to be Mormon because my family was one or that my friends were Mormon. It's because I had faith, I believed, I prayed, and I knew that this church is really true.

How I live my faith

When I was a youth, I would always get involved in the youth activities for us. For example, their BBQ nights, dance nights, going on trips like to Nauvoo Illinois, and all that fun stuff. Now that I've kind of moved up to the adults, I am always involved with the women activity. Celebrating anniversaries, home teaching, and I do visiting teaching, but I don't realize it. And what I mean by that is that I go to my friends house, some members, some not, and I just go on about the Gospel. Most of the time I don't realize that I do that, but when I do it's because my friends whom I visit end up coming to church to see how it's like. I've done some lessons for the youth class and for the woman class. I do my tithing, even when I don't have much money, I give what I can. Most importantly, I'm present every Sunday at my church, take the sacrament, and attend all the classes in need to to better myself in the faith because I don't know it all, but I know enough to know it's true.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Lucille Lanje
Following the Law of Chastity is very important I think. Not only because it's probably unsafe to even be having intercourse at such a young age considering teen pregnancy, but waiting for that right moment with the right person is very important. Making love is what people should really be waiting on. Not just casual hook ups. The day you get married is the day one should think about taking it to the "next level" with their loved one. It shows he/she had the patience to share that moment with you. Having that patience, no matter how long it is just really shows that he/she loved you so much they waited even when they didn't want to. It'll keep you pure. Show more Show less
