Hi I'm Lynn Duce

My childhood days were spent in Idaho and I spent 39 years as a rocket scientist.

About Me

Since graduating from Brigham Young University I have spent my professional career in the aerospace industry specifically with large solid propellant rockets. I have enjoyed learning how to design and manufacture rockets that have taken men to outer space and continue to provide safety and security for the people of this nation.

Why I am a Mormon

I have deep feelings about the Savior and his atoning sacrifice and what that means to me personally. Every week I renew these feelings as I accept the challenge to take upon me his name and to keep his commandments through partaking of the sacrament. It is a very hard challenge to keep the commandments and I often fall short but each day I do a little better. I know that it is only through my Savior and obedience to his commandments that I can once again return to live with my Heavenly father, and to have my beautiful wife and children with me for eternity.

How I live my faith

I currently participate in my community by being a commissioner on the City Planning Commission. Here I have a voice on community ordinances, growth, and business. The highlight of my tenure was to have representatives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints present the plans for the Brigham City Utah temple. My wife and I have served in the temple since it was open. I have also served in various positions in Scouting and with the American Youth Soccer Organization.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Lynn Duce
We are here on this earth for a purpose. It was created by God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. The great secret to understanding eternal life is to know that we lived together with our Father in Heaven before we came to this earth. Inside each of our physical bodies is a spirit and that spirit is eternal. We are here upon the earth to live and learn and grow both physically and spiritually. We are all subject to death - no one gets out of this life without it. However, the Savior made it possible to have our bodies and spirits reunited and refined for eternity through the resurrection, a free gift to all men. The Savior also makes it possible for us to have our sins removed through repentance. This cleansing process allows us to return to the presence of God and Christ. Those who do not accept the Savior and strive to keep his commandments and live Christ like lives trough the principal of repentance will not enjoy being in the presence of God. Show more Show less
