Hi I'm Lindsey

I love to sing, dance, climb rocks - and I'm a mormon!

About Me

Growing up in Seattle was great. I was always exposed to different types of art and music. I felt that my home was strong in the faith but my family didn't necessarily follow the "mormon culture" that is often mistaken as doctrine. My parents always supported what I thought was correct and let me learn from my own mistakes. I think that teaching people from the scriptures and then letting them decide what is right for themselves is the most effective way to teach and let people grow. I believe in living an active lifestyle. Currently, I'm serving a mission in Brazil and teaching people about the gospel! Before I was here, I rock climbed, participated in Hot Yoga and went Lindy-Hop dancing once a week in the city. Ilove learning languages, which has helped with Portuguese. I love to find parallels between the gospel and life because everything God has created testifies of him.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is applicable to everyone and emphasizes your personal relationship with God. If you ever have a question, you can always find an answer by praying and reading the scriptures no matter WHAT the question is. Sometimes the answer is "wait" and we have to exercise patience and wait for answers. God wants to help us and teach us how to become more like him. He will always teach us what we need to know if we are patient. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ. I know this because I prayed and Heavenly Father let me know through his messanger, the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is a great gift that we can all receive after baptism. He always remains with us if we follow Heavenly Father's commandments. He has the power to warn us and testify of truth through feelings and thoughts. I believe Heavenly Father still has lots more to reveal to us.

How I live my faith

As an active Mormon I attend church every Sunday. I support by sometimes giving talks and teaching lessons based from the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I also participate by singing musical numbers. In my daily life, I try to always dress and act modestly and show kindness and respect to others around me.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

I think it is important to have both a father and mother to raise a family. The roles of the parents vary because people have different gifts. While men tend to be the protectors and providers, women have a more nurturing nature. I believe as a woman I am blessed with the gift of discernment and understand other peoples feelings. God created us this way so that we would be good mothers for his children that he sent to earth. Show more Show less
