Hi I'm Lind Stapley

I'm an extraordinarily ordinary man who loves his family, Jesus Christ and helping others.

About Me

I live an extraordinarily ordinary life. Between family, church and work, there isn’t much room for expansive or expensive hobbies. For me, there is nothing better than watching one of kids (I have five daughters, and one son) play in a soccer game, seeing another ballroom dance, or reading a bed time story with my youngest at night. I love hearing about my college kids’ adventures, and reading weekly e-mails from my oldest who is serving a mission in Brazil. I am also married to an angel, who cares, loves and supports me and my family. Work as an attorney at a mid-sized Seattle firm provides intellectual and legal challenges in the areas of environmental and contract law. Going to church and my desire to be like Jesus Christ provide a solid foundation of faith and present multiple opportunities to serve others. Some of my best days are spent counseling individuals on family, faith and the healing power of the Savior, coordinating a large community service project, or taking a bunch of 15 year olds on an overnight hike. I am very blessed and happy. And so, when think about it, my life’s not so ordinary after all!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a devote follower of Jesus Christ, and want to be like Him. The Church gives me the opportunity to serve as He served, pray to our Heavenly Father as He did, be baptized as He was, and live with Him someday through His sacrifice and love.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others as Jesus would. I have the opportunity to preside over a large geographic area of individuals, which means I get to counsel and teach others about the healing power of Jesus Christ, lift spirits, organize events and provide leadership training. I also visit a number of families in my local congregation on a monthly basis to make sure they are doing well.
