Hi I'm Lindsay

I grew up in a musical family. I play the cello. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Idaho that centers around a college and potato farming. I come from a very musical family, and I started playing cello at a young age. I'm currently studying music education in college. I love teaching private cello lessons and seeing people grow and develop! I hope to inspire and lift my students through music. I'm a middle child in a family of 6 kids. Family is so important to me! I'm blessed to have amazing parents who have taught me the right things and are supportive in every way. I hope some day to be able to do the same thing for kids of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed enough to have the Church my whole life. I was baptized and confirmed when I was eight years old. I know my family has received many blessings because we choose to live the gospel. We have always been invited to study things out in our own minds, to read the Book of Mormon, ponder it, and ask God if it is true. I took this invitation to heart at a young age. I sincerely wanted to know if the Book of Mormon is a true book, and if the things I had been taught my whole life were true. I also wanted to know for myself if God is real, if He really knows me, and if the Savior's sacrifice is for me. As I read, pondered, and prayed, the Holy Spirit testified to me that yes, God is real. He knows me and cares about me. The Book of Mormon is a true book. Through reading it I came to know Jesus Christ. And I received a powerful witness that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church on the earth! As I have continued to study and pray and try to live my life the way I have been taught, I often feel the same sweet Spirit confirming to me that I am on the right path. I know Jesus Christ is at the head of this church, and he wants all to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is part of my every day life! I try to incorporate scripture study and prayer into my daily routine. Although I'm definitely not perfect at it, it helps me get through every-day challenges and keep everything in my life in perspective. This is because the more we involve God in our lives, the more He is able to be involved in ours! Another way I live my faith is by being involved in church. I attend a ward (or church group) of young single adults (ages 18-30). Each sister (everyone in the Church is called brother or sister) is assigned to visit other sisters each month--to get to know them and be a source of support. For me, this is an opportunity to reach out of my comfort zone and make friends with sisters I may not otherwise get to know. It also helps me learn how better serve those around me.
