Hi I'm Lindsay

I care for injured athletes. I love learning. I enjoy living the simple moments of life. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young sports medicine professional learning to balance life. I spend much of my time teaching young athletes how to appropriately prevent and recover from injuries. But when I am not working on sporting event sidelines, I love to spend time taking in the simple joys that surround all of us. I enjoy jumping in puddles when it rains, reading books in the sun, and sharing in conversations with friends. I have an addiction to learning and love to adopt new talents into my life such as playing a new musical instrument, developing outdoor skills hiking or fly-fishing. I even like to make messes in the kitchen in the hopes that something delicious will occur.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in Utah as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I moved out of state to complete my Master's degree, I had the opportunity to learn about myself and re-invent who I was. With my new location and new social circles, the possibilities were endless. Situations arose which gave me the choice to live the faith my parents had taught me or to live by a different standard. Time and time again I found myself continuing in the patterns my parents had taught me, striving to live the standards of my LDS faith. I wanted the peace and happiness my parents had taught me the LDS faith could and would bring. I wanted strength, help, and confidence to face life's challenges. All of which I knew were blessings associated with consistently living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Because I have made the choice to live the life of a Latter-Day Saint, I know for myself the blessings such a lifestyle can bring. I have learned much by living my faith. I have come to know and love my Savior Jesus Christ. I have been supported through moments of loneliness and sorrow and have found peace and happiness beyond what words can explain. I now know that I am a Mormon, not just because it is the faith of my parents, but because I choose to be so.

How I live my faith

One of the ways I live my faith is to contribute my time and talents to serve and build my ward. Specifically, I have been called as a teacher for my ward's Gospel Principles class. I prepare lessons to help the class understand fundamental concepts about the gospel of Jesus Christ. The class is designed for guests and recently baptized members specifically, but all are welcome in our class. It is a great place for each of us to get our bearings or re-orient ourselves to Christ's gospel principles as we seek to deepen our faith and expand our understanding. I love having this opportunity. One reason is because I have learned so much from class members and from my preparatory studying. Secondly, this form of service has opened the door to friendships I wouldn't have had otherwise and which have blessed my life tremendously.
