Hi I'm Lindsey.

and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm Lindsey. I'm the wife of a wonderful husband and the mother of our beautiful baby girl, Addyson. I'm a certified phlebotomist, but I'm able to stay at home with our daughter and be a full time mom. My husband and I have been married for 2 years. He's studying to be a doctor right now so our life is a little hectic and busy. But we take every opportunity that we have to spend time together and spend time with our families. We love to do things out doors like camping, hiking, and swimming. We also love to travel, especially to places with unique architecture, landscaping or sites.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that had already accepted The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as their religion, but that is not why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because throughout my life I have constantly had my faith and beliefs confirmed to me as I have studied the Bible and the Book of Mormon, prayed for understanding and help, and listened to the teachings of people in our day who speak for the Lord and then as I have followed their instruction. I do believe in modern day revelation. We have a prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, who serves as the connection between God and us today. I know that if anyone honestly desires to know if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church, all you have to do is learn about the gospel and then pray and plead with the Lord to know if it is true. I have done this and I can promise that an answer may not come loud and immediately, it may be a feeling of happiness or peace, but I know that an answer will come.

How I live my faith

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints tries to be very aware of the needs of the members of the church as well as the needs of the community, and there are many ways that we stay in touch with both. First the prophet, President Monson is careful to make sure any need throughout the world that we can help with such as natural disasters receive our help. My husband is traveling with many men from our church this weekend to help with cleaning up the disaster the hurricanes left in the southeast last week. But on a smaller scale, the are many ways we help the members of our church and people in our area, too. In church most men and women are assigned a few members to visit once a month. I have several women that I and another woman visit together and we just talk and laugh about things that are going on in our lives. We offer to help with things like cleaning or offer any help we can for any other needs she or her family may have. We are there to support the people of our church and to get to know the members in our church better and become friends. Most members of our church are also assigned responsibilities in our church that we call callings. Callings can change often. Right now I am in charge of teaching the 5 and 6 year old children. I meet with them every Sunday and we teach a lesson, sing songs about the gospel, and then we usually play a game or draw a picture about what we have talked about. The children I teach teach me every class as well, they are so sweet and unselfish and have so recently come from God that they bring a beautiful spirit to every class.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Family is one of the most important things in my life. As Mormons we believe that families are central to Heavenly Fathers plan and that we can be together forever. We don't believe in polygamy and we do not support it or allow it in any way. Members of our church believe that the family consists of marriage between a man and a woman and their children. I love to spend as much time with my family as I can. My husband and I do everything we can together. During the week he usually has classes and work and I take care of our daughter, run errands, clean, cook, and get anything else done. We stay pretty busy, but we make time to have dinner together, we pray as a couple at night, and we read from the scriptures together. We also have family night every Monday night where we have a lesson, a song, a prayer, a game and a treat. We also have date nights on Friday nights. It has always been important in my family as I was growing up, as well as in my husbands family, that we make time to support our family in their activities. When my brother had soccer games, or my parents played in couples softball, we all went and supported each other. Supporting our families has helped us to love one another even more and has helped our families feel like we can rely on each other. Show more Show less
