Hi I'm Lindsay

I'm a mother of 4, a wife, a runner, a reader, a laugher, a bit obsessed with taking photos and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 4, a graduate from Arizona State University with a BS in Justice Studies and a minor in tourism. I am a photographer and I love to run. My older and only sister was killed in a car accident when I was 16 years old and my father died suddenly from Cancer when I was 20. I have been LDS for 9 years.

Why I am a Mormon

The first time I set foot inside a mormon church as an adult, tears filled my eyes. I had not felt the presence of my sister or my father, who had passed away 6 and 2 years earlier, until that moment. I felt hope, healing, and joy that I had never experienced before anyone ever glanced my direction. Being mormon has taught me that we are here for a reason, that kindness and love are what life is about, that we will be with our families forever. Without that knowledge, with the life experiences that I have endured, there is no way that I would have been able to bring children into this world and not be terrified every second that I breathed that I would not have them forever. I love my church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving my family, loving my neighbors, and by trying to be one human being that makes a little difference in the people around her.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

The most exciting thing to me, as an adult convert to the Mormon church is that I KNOW I will be with my family forever. Death is not the end; it may hurt worse than anything you have ever felt, but family is eternal. The knowledge of eternal families is what makes our relationships so sweet and helps us to endure the hard moments in life. Show more Show less

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are so important to Mormons because families are central in God's plan for us. With our families, we can experience the greatest love, we can provide service and be served, we can be care takers and guardians. By raising strong families, we are raising strong people who can contribute to a stronger society and help provide a world in which humanity can thrive. Show more Show less
