Hi I'm Lindsy

I grew up in Las Vegas, NV. I love to sing. I love to exercise. I'm a mother of two amazing little kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ever since I was little, I have loved to sing. It makes my heart and spirit soar. There's a power in music that speaks to everyone's hearts, regardless of the language they speak or where they come from. I love sharing that and feeling it course through me. I don't get as many opportunities to perform as I once did, but every time I do, it feels like home. I am a mother of two children, one girl and one boy. They are both very young and keep me running, but I'm learning to embrace and love my role as their mother. I could lie and say it's always wonderful and carefree, but I try to be honest. I will say that it is absolutely, completely worth all the struggle and striving. I have had to change a LOT to become a mother--it didn't come 100% naturally. But the changes I have had to make and am still making are making me a better person, and more of the person Heavenly Father wants me to be. After all, out of all the titles He could've chosen, He asks us to call Him Father. That tells me the importance of being a parent. There are moments when I wonder if anything I'm doing will make a difference, and then Heavenly Father blesses me with a moment where my son wraps his arms around my neck or my daughter says, "Mommy, you're the best mommy in the whole world." And then I know inside that what I'm doing is right. That my Heavenly Father is looking down with love and approval, even though I'm not perfect at this whole parenting thing. And that makes it all worthwhile.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a "Mormon" home, but I had to receive my own witness of the gospel's truthfulness. I can tell you right now that if I hadn't, I wouldn't still be going to church. I wouldn't say that it's been one event that cemented my faith; it's more like a compilation of many, many experiences. Once I prayed to know if Heavenly Father was really there, or if He even cared about me at all. I read from the scriptures and the words of the scripture I read said exactly what I needed to hear. I also felt a warm feeling of peace. Every Sunday when I go to church, I feel a burning in my heart and a peace and happiness that lets me know that what is being taught is true. I know that the gospel taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. It is the gospel of Christ restored to this earth. Christ is at the head of it and He called Joseph Smith to restore the sweet truths that had been lost during years of darkness. I know that because of Christ and the promises I make to Him in our temples, I can live with my family FOREVER. That means so much to me, because I love my family with all my heart, especially my husband. It's that love that keeps me going and changing--the pure love of Christ that comes as two people work at a marriage that can last eternally. I bear witness that marriage and family are ordained of God. They are the reason we are here and the laboratory in which we are tested and begin to change into the people God would have us become. I know that through Jesus Christ's Atonement, I can change and grow into eternity! What an amazing blessing and opportunity! Just think of the growth that you experience when you learn something new or change your life in a good way. We get to experience that FOREVER and be in a state of eternal progression. How wonderful! I want to be a part of that, and a part of changing other people's lives, so they can experience the gigantic joy I feel as a member of the LDS church.

How I live my faith

I play piano for the women's meeting at church. I love it because I'm able to share my passion for music, even if it might be in a small way. I go to church each Sunday and love it, because I come away refreshed and ready for the week ahead. I get to talk to people who I can relate to--imperfect people striving to become better through Jesus Christ. I love talking with people at church and going to classes together because then I realize that I'm not crazy!! That almost EVERYONE has similar feelings/thoughts (thoughts of doubt or discouragement). I also get to visit women from my congregation on a monthly basis, sharing gospel messages with them and lifting their spirits and just chatting. It's so great to feel like you can be a help to another person. Most of all, I love to point others towards Christ, because He is the source of all goodness in our lives.
