Hi I'm Lyndsay.

I'm a TV enthusiast. I'm a huge sports fan. I'm an awesome wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Alabama, but have since lived in Utah, South Dakota, Washington DC, Delaware, and now, Massachusetts. I love vacations. I love tv. I love movies (especially scary ones). I love eating out. I love to shop. I love the Chicago Cubs, the Boston Celtics, BYU football, and, of course, Alabama football (Roll Tide!!).

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the happiness it brings to my life. To me, being Mormon is all about family...and I love mine and want to be together with them forever! The gospel brings the knowledge of eternal families, along with other teachings that can help us all be happy and inspire us to help each other along our way.

How I live my faith

I have many opportunities to live my faith every day! I try to be an "obvious" Mormon so that people feel comfortable asking me about what I believe and how I practice my religion. At church, there are many various ways to serve and it takes everyone! From helping out with the Boy Scout program, to teaching a Sunday School class for investigators and new members, to visiting the sick or taking meals to new mothers, there is plenty to do. There's never a dull moment, but I know that serving others brings blessings seen and unseen and helps us draw closer to Christ.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Mormons go to church each Sunday for 3 hours, and visitors are always welcome to attend any and all meetings with us! 3 hours sounds like a lot of time, but the time is broken up into 3 different blocks. One meeting is called Sacrament Meeting, and it lasts approximately 70 minutes. Each week at this meeting, we have the opportunity to take the sacrament. The sacrament is bread and water which has been blessed and is then passed around to anyone who would like to partake. After the sacrament is taken, the rest of the meeting is spent listening to speakers who are asked to speak on a particular topic. Another meeting is our Sunday School class. In Sunday School, we are taught a lessons from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and on various gospel subjects. There are separate Sunday School classes for youth divided by age and for adults. The last block of time at church on Sundays is spent in Relief Society, Priesthood, or Young Men/ Women meetings. The Relief Society meeting is for all adult women, the Priesthood meetings are for the men, and the Young Men/ Young Women meetings are for the youth aged 12 - 17. The children's program at our church is called the Primary, and their meetings are for children from 3 - 11 years old. Show more Show less
