Hi I'm Lindsay

I'm a mom, a swim coach and a Mormon.

About Me

I have been happily married since 2003 and am a mother to 3 young, active children. I teach swim lessons for a local swim school part time and spend the rest of my time as a homemaker. My husband recently decided to go back to school full time, leaving the constuction roller-coaster behind for good-yay! I anticipate the next few years to be a draining and difficult time for our family but I truly believe that great reward requires great sacrafice. Onward & upward!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an unpredictable & often difficult family enviroment. My mother didn't always make the best choices but despite her short comings she instilled a very deep love and reverence for the Savior within each of us. When I turned 8 years old, I knew that I wanted to be baptised and become a member of His Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. As a young child, I knew of no other place that felt so peaceful and safe then while attending church meetings on Sundays and visiting my friend's homes who were members in our ward. I knew that someday I wanted this same sense of peace for my future family. When I was 20 years old, I was married and sealed in the Seattle Temple for time and eternity. To say it has been one of the greatest and most rewarding experiences of my lifetime would be a gross understatement. With three young kids, my home now is not always quite, not always peaceful and not always clean. But when a non-member friend came by for a visit and asked what my "secret" was for a happy home, I knew she could feel The Spirit. This is the greatest blessing in my mortal life, to feel, to know and to love my Savior, Jesus Christ. More then anything, I cherish my testimony of the only true church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I serve as a Visiting Teacher within my ward. My companion (sister I'm assigned to work with) and I contact our group of assigned sisters by phone, letter or personal visit each month to share a Gospel thought and look for ways to help out. Some of my closest friends now are sisters that I have visit taught. One of the things that I love so much about The Church is the abundant opportunities to serve within my community, my ward and even within my own home. There is always a need somewhere in my small corner of the world and by serving others I can draw nearer to my Savior and strengthen my personal testimony of Him.
