Hi I'm Lindsey

I'm a nurse, I love sports, I adore my husband, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband Caleb and I both grew up in southern California. We met in college and were married after graduation. I am a nurse and Caleb is getting his PhD at Purdue. We both are the oldest of five children, and love being apart of big families. We have now started our own family, with one daughter, and one son on the way. My hobbies include my daughter, most sports (soccer, ultimate frisbee, and volleyball especially), singing, playing the piano, reading, and talking with my mom and sisters on the phone. Some quirky passions of mine include pumpkin pie, BYU football, Thai food, rollerblading, and trying new ice cream flavors. (I am only now realizing how many of my passions involve food. I guess you could say I live to eat!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family where the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was a central part of life. Living the gospel made us happy and provided a stable and peaceful home environment. As I grew up and left my home, that peace and stability stayed with me as I continued to live my faith. It gives life purpose. Living Christ's gospel is so fulfilling. It may require time and sacrifice, but what worthwhile thing doesn't?

How I live my faith

Going to church every Sunday is only one way in which I live my faith. I read from the scriptures and pray (both individually and with my husband) daily. I attend a gospel study class each week called "Institute" where we learn more about the scriptures. This year we have been studying the Old Testament. I also participate as a "visiting teacher" each month, where another woman and myself visit several other women from our church. We get to know these women, leave a brief spiritual message with them, and help them out if they ever need a hand. It's a great way to make friends and make sure everybody is taken care of. I believe that one way God takes care of us is through other people, like visiting teachers. I also teach a class of 12-year-old girls at church each Sunday. I think the most important way I live my faith is by taking care of my family. Family is such an important part of our faith. I only occasionally work as a nurse, but my #1 job is "mom." I love staying at home and caring for my daughter. The more involved I am in these things, the closer I feel to God, and the happier I become.
