Hi I'm Lindsay

I love ballet, chocolate, and spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Lindsay. I am a home body and love to spend time with my family. My family is such a great support in everything I do, and they are my best friends. I often have siblings tease me because I never go out with friends, but in all reality I am with my friends all the time at home! I love ballet and have been dancing since I was eight years old. Ballet is a great way for me to get my mind off of life, and to forget my trials for a few hours. I love the escape it brings when you get to become someone new through the movements. Not to mention it is a great form of exercize! I love going hiking, boating, camping, and many other outdoorsy activities. I love this gospel and it has blessed me in so many ways. The gospel can bring added happiness to everyone no matter who you are. I know this to be true and that is why I decided to serve a mission in Upstate New York!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the gospel and for many years of my life I did things because it was what my parents expected of me. Over the years I have realized that you get to a point where you have to make your own decisions, and your beliefs are one of those decisions. I decided I could not rely on my parents testimonies anymore, and I had to find out if what my parents had taught me was true. I read from the Book of Mormon and prayed to my Heavenly Father. Over time I came to know this gospel is true. I have felt it in my heart and seen it change my outlook on life. The Church of Jesus Christ is on the earth today, and we have a living prophet to guide us. I know Jesus Christ atoned not only for my sins, but for my sorrows and griefs. I am eternaly grateful and indebted to Him. This is why I am a Mormon! 

How I live my faith

At the moment I live my faith by serving as a missionary in New York. I have wanted to serve a mission ever since I was twelve years old. It is amazing I am finally living my dream. Each day I go out and share the gospel with whoever will listen. Most days are hard, but I love the work. I also live my faith by doing the simple things reading from the Book of Mormon, praying to my Heavenly Father, and searching for ways to serve others. It is by these small actions that my faith has grown tremendously. When we are obedient in the little things, great blessings come.
