Hi I'm Lyndsi Ann

I sing, I write and my favorite sound is children's laughter. I know life always has a silver lining and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music!! You could say that I breath it. I love to sing and perform at local restaurants and other live music venues. I am also married and LOVE spending time doing ANYTHING with my husband. I love sewing, writing music and just writing in general. I've worked in day-cares and currently teach piano, violin, and guitar lessons. I love parks and camping and playing around with pictures on my computer. I like canning things like jam and peaches. I love the color red, cheesecake, cookie dough, classical music, most Sara Bareilles songs, picnics, and BBC's Robin Hood & Merlin Series. I have a somewhat secret obsession with journals (I currently have over 13 that I've filled and just bought two new ones). In reading them, I find my faith strengthened as all the ways that God has looked out for me are more clear in hind-sight. I love Italian salad dressing and fresh spinach in my salad. One of my greatest delights in life has to be spending time with my family and closest friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family but the reasons that I remain a member of this church are born of my own conviction. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ because it is the only thing that brings me peace in a sometimes chaotic world. I have been through my share of tough times, mostly due to health concerns, but the hope that comes through the Atonement and Resurrection of my Savior Jesus Christ has allowed me to have peace and lasting joy, even when things don't turn out as I had hoped or planned. The infinite love made manifest by the Son of God for me personally has helped me love being myself and find the worth that is in each of us. This truth brings such confidence in a world that loves to tell us that we're missing something, whether it be the right clothes or the perfect make up. I am so grateful to know the principles that bring such overflowing happiness into my life, as I live them. I know that Jesus is the Christ and that in Him, every sorrow and mistake was overcome so that He could help me become like Him to find lasting peace, joy, and direction.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I am a leader over the 14 and 15 year old girls. I love serving in this way! What a vital age to decide who you want to be and make choices that will affect the rest of you life. I am always amazed at the example of strength and conviction in the youth of the church! They remind me of who I want to be. Every Sunday in our Young Women meetings, my conviction and dedication to living my faith are strengthened as we serve each other and discuss the gospel of Jesus Christ. My husband and I love to help where ever possible. We like to meet people moving in by helping them unload moving trucks or babysitting. When a new member gets baptized, we try to attend whenever possible.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Lyndsi Ann
My whole life, I have felt that there was a God. Even as a little girl, I knew He was there. I knew that such a beautiful world could not be created by chance but that it had to be made for a purpose and that purpose includes us. As I've stated before, I have my own challenges-challenges that regularly bring me to my knees. I have several health concerns that weigh me down, but the Lord never leaves me alone. He always sends comfort, whether through the words of the scriptures or a song or some one checking in on me to see if things are alright. My mom has been a great example to me of the fact that the Lord never leaves us alone, even when He doesn't take away some of the things that bring some sorrow into our lives. My mom and I both have health problems that make bringing children into the world very difficult. I have had this concern of wanting to be a mother, yet, having challenges that make this dream difficult in attaining, but my mother never let go of her faith. She showed me how to keep going, even when you greatest, most righteous desires seem to be miles away. I know that God can heal any infirmity and relieve any pain, but when He doesn't (for the sake of making us stronger and better able to help others) He WILL still comfort us; He will not forget you. And this has been the strongest testament, not only of the truth that God is, but that He is my Father. He cares for us as only the best father could. When hard, horrible things happen, He does not cause them, that's just part of this mortal experience, but He WILL give you every opportunity and resource you need to become better because of (or in spite of) the events and circumstances that we cannot control. This is the greatest thing that tells me there is a God, that He is involved in the details of our lives and that He will be more involved as we trust Him. This trust isn't the easiest thing to do, some times it is the hardest, but it can be done and as we look for the evidences of His help in the middle of our life's disappointing and difficult circumstances WE WILL find Him there.
