Hi I'm Lindsey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of the church my entire life. I grew up with the gospel in my home and I grew to love and appreciate it. It was not until I turned 18 and went off to college that I realized I took for granted the Christ centered home I once had. I realized my parents put forth the effort to have a Christ centered home. It does not just happen because that is what you want. You have to go beyond the want and desires and do. You have to work. I now have a family of my own. I am a stay at home mother. At times it is hard to feel appreciated or to know if you are doing the right thing. But as I read my scriptures with my children, as we say our prayers, as we study and live Christ's example, I know I am doing the right thing. I feel appreciated. I feel my Savior's love.

Why I am a Mormon

I am not a Mormon because my parents are. I am not a Mormon because my husband is. I am a Mormon because it is a choice I made when I was only 8 years of age and I know it to be true. I have felt the Spirit confirm it to me. If you ever have any doubt or any questions, get on your knees and pray, and then open your scriptures and read. Your prayers will be answered.

How I live my faith

A year and a half ago I was called to serve the young women (ages 12-18). I laughed. I thought it was a joke. Then I cried when I realized it wasn't. In high school I didn't always follow the guidance of my church leaders or my parents. It is a time of my life that will forever haunt me. I have sought repentance but I can not quite shake the guilt. Now I have the opportunity to be an example for these young girls and help guide them to not make the same mistakes as me. I feel like it is a fresh start. I know I have been forgiven by my Savior, but I realize I have to forgive myself. It will take time. A lot more time than I ever could have imagined. But in helping the youth of our church to learn the gospel I am also learning how to forgive myself.
