Hi I'm Lindsay

I love fashion, food, culture, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in California in a very active LDS family. I am the middle child of three, with an older sister and younger brother. After high school, I attended beauty school and then received my Associate's from a local college. In 2005, I spent a semester in Nauvoo, Illinois through a church-related program. I also attended a university where I studied Communication. Some of my hobbies include entertaining, attending concerts, traveling, singing, shopping, cooking, decorating, reading, and enjoying the beach.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the immense blessings it has flooded into my life. My immediate and extended family has always been centered around church service and participation, and I have witnessed miracles in my life as a result. My testimony is fairly simple. I know I am a daughter of a very real Heavenly Father, who is aware of my challenges and needs. Through my faith in His son Jesus Christ, I can overcome my many mistakes and faults and gain eternal life and exhaltation. Through sacred temple covenants, ordinances, and obedience to the commandments, I can be united with my family for eternity.

How I live my faith

My faith is my life. The two cannot easily be separated like "work life" and "home life." There isn't a category for "church life," because it defines and permeates every aspect of who I am and the choices I make. My faith influences how I try to treat my associates and neighbors, my perspective on political issues, my use of time, how I handle my relationships, what media I choose to consume, how I treat my body, etc. One of my favorite scriptures is found in Luke 924, "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it." The recipe for pure joy is so simple. The more we serve, love, and give others and the Lord unselfishly, the happier we are. Although I am not perfect, I have witnessed this simple and beautiful truth in my life. In the church, members give freely of their time and means to help others and progress the work of the Gospel. I have found so much joy in the opportunities I have had to serve in any aspect of the church. Every member has the responsibility to fulfill a calling within their local ward. I have made some of my dearest friends planning weekly young single adult activities and cooking and decorating for dances. My gospel knowledge has grown teaching lessons on Sunday. My love for my fellow man has grown participating in service projects and serving in leadership positions.
