In order to make this forum post, you clearly were signed in to LDS.org using the username "robertstoneberg" and some password -- that is your LDS Account. You can use that same LDS Account to sign in to FamilySearch.org. Since you already have an LDS Account, the fact that you share a cell phone with your wife should not be a problem.

The only remaining question is if you are a member of the LDS Church and if your LDS Account is associated with your membership record number. If so, then your LDS Account will allow you to see your ward/stake Directory and Calendar and some other things as well; on FamilySearch it would allow you to see temple ordinances and to submit names for temple work.

If you find that you can do all those things, then all is well. If not, then you can go to ldsaccount.lds.org and add your membership record number to your account. If you have any difficulty doing that, post back here and we can help.
