Hi I'm Lindsey

I live in Colorado. I am a mother and wife. I am a graphic designer/copywriter/photographer/musician...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I met the man of my dreams when I was 16. Both of us had been raised in the church, but chose to live our teenage years a little more rebellious. As our relationship progressed, I felt a shift in my character. He made me want to be better. When a boy turns 19 years old, it is a custom in our church that they go on a two year mission. My husband did not plan on going on a mission. I told him I would marry him whether or not he chose to go. I knew he was the person I wanted to be with forever. But he chose to go, which was a very brave and scary thing. And I waited. Missionaries are only allowed to call home on Christmas and Mother's Day, so for two years we wrote each other letters. He also wrote me songs, reminding me of his feelings. We got engaged a month after his return. He took me back to where he had served his mission to propose. We have now been married for 5 years. Our life together is yet to slow down. I finished college with a degree in Communications, and he finished at the Art Institute of Colorado in Graphic Design. We have opened businesses, promoted and performed in concerts, moved from our first home in Idaho back to Colorado, bought a house, and have two beautiful kids. I know this part is supposed to be about ME so I love to design, to photograph, to sing and to run. I have finished two half marathons now and plan to just keep running! My husband also loves to design and make music. It's a passion we get to enjoy together. Even my kids sing along.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. As a teenager, I did some serious "soul searching" and ended up right back where I started. I think deep down, I have always known it to be true. Though I did not live with accordance to its principles for a time I saw the end result as me coming back around. It is my mold. There really would be no shape to my life; no meaning if I did not have my beliefs. My faith has comforted me, instructed me, even saved my very life. Knowing that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me is really the root of any big question I have ever had. My husband's faith has always been a great motivation to me as well. Since we began dating as kids, he made me want to be better. I wanted to be worthy of such a man. Together, we make a pretty solid team.

How I live my faith

I have served in a number of callings in my church. I had the privileged of advising the young women for two years. I taught them and learned from them. The Youth really are the source of power in the world. They require the strongest convictions in their day to day. I felt so blessed to be in their presence. Currently, I am a teacher in the Relief Society. This would be all the women in our ward that are 18 and above. The next best thing to listening to the testimonies of a teenager, is learning about their mothers. I am also music chairman and a visiting teacher to three women. Living your faith is a daily thing. So I read my scriptures, pray individually as well as with my family daily. I go to church every week. I try to live my life as the Savior would. I am far from perfect, but I try. The greatest source of strength for me is found in the temple. It is separated from the world completely. It is the Lord's house, and when you are in there you can feel that.
