Hi I'm Lindi

I'm a wife and mother. And I'm lots of other things.

About Me

I'm a married mother of four: a boy, a girl, and twin girls. My hobbies include anything computer related, drawing, sewing, reading, exercising, learning. I love the opportunities that life brings for me to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon home but had to find out for myself of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I learned this during my teenage years when negativity and doubt were at their height. I came to personally understand how Christ is my Savior, that I have a loving Father in Heaven who wants me to succeed-- That even though the world is quite cynical, there is more reason to be hopeful and happy than sad. This knowledge I gained has served as a driving force as well as anchor in my life.

How I live my faith

My religion isn't a passive one. I attend church each Sunday with my family. We treat Sunday differently from other days of the week. We avoid shopping and recreation that we can do on other days of the week. Instead we take time to write or call family members, write in our journals, play with each other, and enjoy the simplicity of grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner! Each day we have a morning and evening family prayer together as well as family scripture study. On Monday nights we have Family Home Evening--it's basically a family night where we get a chance to teach each other and reinforce our values. We also play games and enjoy treats together as part of our family night. I study and meditate from my scriptures each day. This includes the Old and New Testaments, as well as the Book of Mormon and the words from our living prophets. I'm currently serving in my local church group as a Sunday school teacher for young children. I love to teach!

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that the family is ordained of God. A family can be eternal. Ideally a family unit consists of a mother, father, and children. But many members of the church are widowed, single with children, married and childless, or just plain single. Yet, we all came from a family; we all belong to a family. The family environment should provide us with comfort and protection from the world and its influences. Our goal as a family is to help strengthen each other, teach each other, and guide each other through this life and on into eternity. Show more Show less
