Hi I'm Lindsay

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Top 5 things about me #1 I'm a wife to a hardworking, BBQ-loving, ESPN-watching man whom I adore. #2 I'm a mom. My daughter just turned one. I am so proud of her, and I am so grateful to have her. #3 The library is my favorite place to be. I love to learn new things. Someday, I'd like to get my Masters in Library Science. #4 I love family history! It is fascinating to me where I came from-and where other people come from. My husband laughs at me when we drive down the street, and I point someone out waiting for the bus and say, "I wonder where they come from. I wonder if they know about their ancestors." #5 I love step aerobics, kickboxing, Zumba, etc. My husband has gotten used to studying to a variety of music in the background. :)

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 15 years old, I was going through a difficult time. I remember sitting on my bed feeling very discouraged. I felt like I should pray. I prayed to God, and immediately, I felt comfort and love. I felt completely at peace. God heard and answered my prayer. I know that God knows each of us and He loves each of us. I have thought about this experience several times. God's love for me helps me to be better, and it gives me hope. Ten years later, I continue to live the gospel. After the gospel, my family is the most important thing that I have. Mormons believe that families can be together forever by being sealed in temples. By living the gospel, I believe that I can live with my Heavenly Father again someday, and my family will be with me.

How I live my faith

I am the family history teacher in my ward. I also volunteer at the family history library each Saturday. It is the best calling I've ever had! I love learning about my ancestors and helping others do the same. My faith helps me to be a better mother. On a particularly difficult day, my daughter was hysterical, and my patience was getting short. But the thought came to mind that I should pray. It was a simple prayer, but immediately, my daughter calmed down. She could feel the peace that comes from prayer.
