Hi I'm Lindsay Kay

I am an artist, opera singer, wife, mother and a Mormon.

About Me

My motto is "Life is Beautiful." Believing that statement has given me the eyes to see my Heavenly Father's hand in each moment and to appreciate His beautiful blessings all around me. There is always a little bit of ugly around us, sure, but I prefer to focus on the beauty - therein lies lasting happiness. I love my husband James. We were sealed for time and eternity in the Detroit Michigan LDS Temple on November 12, 2011 - that was truly the most beautiful day of my life thus far. I received my BFA in Graphic Design in 2011 and I love everything about it. I am very "right brained" - all of my greatest passions are artistic - singing opera, organization, drawing, creative writing, photography, etc. I love making things look beautiful. In May of 2013 I achieved the role I've longed for my whole life - I became a mother to my beautiful daughter and little best friend Eva. I love being a mom and I find that I am even more grateful for and dependent upon the principles and doctrines of the gospel in my life as I now care for one of God's precious daughters. Random facts about me? I love Italy, Pilates, cheesecake, bald eagles, freshly-painted toenails, the Harry Potter series and traveling. Welcome to my story.

Why I am a Mormon

Alma 37:6 says "By small and simple things are great things brought to pass." It is the same with my testimony of this gospel. The small moments when the spirit touches my heart as I read the Book of Mormon, listen to the Prophet's counsel, pray for strength, serve someone in need or ponder in the holy temple – each of these small moments continually strengthen my faith and affirm the truthfulness that I feel deep in my heart. I am a Mormon because I know the gospel is true and it makes me more happy that anything else. I have felt Heavenly Father’s strength in my daily life as I’ve willingly kept His commandments. The commandments not only strengthen me, but allow me freedom from the miserable consequences of sin. I know that I fall short of perfect every day, but I also know that through the loving Atonement of my Savior, Jesus Christ, I can be forgiven of my sins and imperfections and be made clean and whole. There is nothing that brings more peace, strength and happiness to my life than living these things that I know to be true. I know that I am a child of God and that He has a plan for me that is far more beautiful than any plan I could come up with. Because I am His child, I can be like He is and enjoy all that He has if I do my part in keeping the sacred promises that I have made with Him. I will do all that I can to return to His loving presence and live in eternal happiness with my family forever. There is no goal more precious and beautiful to me.

How I live my faith

My faith is the foundation of my happiness - that is to say, without Heavenly Father's love and guidance, life loses its meaning. I am grateful to know that my Father in Heaven has created a beautiful plan for my life and that it is far greater than anything I could imagine for myself. It amazes me to know that Heavenly Father loves me, He knows me perfectly, and He wants me to be happy. I live my faith in Him by endeavoring each day to return my love to Him, to come to know Him better and by leaving people happier than I found them.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Lindsay Kay
My favorite truth of the gospel is this: Families are Forever. I have been blessed with a wonderful family. We are not perfect, but Heavenly Father must've known that we'd be perfect for each other. When we are together I feel a piece of heaven and I know that Heavenly Father loves me. Families are at the center of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I assume Heavenly Father knew this life would be hard for us at times, so He sent us with a custom-made support group to learn from and grow with. What's even better is that families aren't just for this Earth life, they're for keeps. Through the sacred ordinances of the temple we make covenants with our Father in Heaven and are sealed (bound; in a good way, like an eternal hug) to our families forever. Knowing how much I love my husband, my daughter and my beautiful family, this truth means everything to me. Show more Show less
