For thirty years, Lynn Wilder was an active member of the Mormon church and a tenured member of the faculty of Brigham Young University, specializing in International studies and known world wide. Her son Micah had a life changing revelation while serving his Mormon mission in Florida. Eventually this led to the entire family accepting Christ and becoming Christians. Needless to say this had profound effects on the entire family, their relationships, jobs and future.
Lynn tells of her abandoning the deception of Mormonism as she received God’s Grace. It changed all their lives.
We will soon be meeting her and her family right here at Fairview as they come to visit and to present their testimony and story. What a wonderful event that will be on Sunday August 7th. Don’t miss it and be sure to invite family and friends. The Wilders will be with us the entire day.
Lynn Wilder graduated from High School in Richmond, Indiana. She married her husband Michael in 1974 and they have 3 sons, Joshua, Matt and Micha. Lynn and Michael joined the LDS church in 1977 after 2 Mormon missionaries visited their door. She earned her Phd at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. In 2008, Lynn converted and became an evangelical Born-Again-Christian. She resigned her position at BYU. Her book is a fair and very comprehensive one showing the true differences between Christianity and Mormonism. We are blessed to be having her visit with her family and share first hand her testimony and experiences.
