Hi I'm Lindsey Anderson.

I have a Math Education degree. I moonwalk. I make a mean banana cream pie. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play games! Any games. Board games, word games, song games, cleaning games, you name it! Sports are included. Especially volleyball. I played in high school and then on intramural teams in college. Now I try to do church or city league stuff. I have the most amazing husband. He is extremely patient with me, and loves to make me smile. :) He and I have two children - a two-year-old little boy who has one of the cutest faces, and a brand new little girl with a remarkably similar face... :) What can I say, we make 'em adorable! I told my husband when we got married that in order for me to make things he liked, I needed to know what he thought of my cooking. Now we have a five-star rating system that we use. One day I'll make a recipe book of just the husband-five-star recipes. So far, I don't have enough entries to make one... :) I love to cook, though, and he loves to eat! I think the worst part about chores around the house is the folding/putting away of laundry. I've gotten into reading a lot again. I am loving the young adult fiction section of the public library! I recently read the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull and LOVED IT!

Why I am a Mormon

I have had a testimony since I can remember. My brain process is logic and reasoning all the way (probably the math background). This gospel just makes sense to me. There are no loose ends. For example, what is the point in living forever after we die if we are just going to wear robes and sing in a choir? Would Christ have sacrificed so much for us to live if the result would be stuck in endless songs? I think not. We are meant to live. And life - in it's fullest meaning - will happen after this. There will be choices to make, tasks to do, people to love, progress to be made, and songs to sing. Living - that is how we truly praise our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They love us. And they love to let us live. Any question you have, Heavenly Father wants you to know the answer. He has directed me and answered my questions that I surely have had during my lifetime. The mysteries of heaven are waiting. Go get them!

How I live my faith

In my ward, I am one of the leaders over the children under 12. We sing songs, plan activities, and teach lessons that are plain and simple to be sure that they can understand. We know that we are not - and shouldn't be - the main source of gospel knowledge for these kids. Their homes are where they learn most of what they know. We provide the formal (or as formal as you can get with 0-11 year-olds) religious teachings, and hope that they build upon this foundation for the rest of their lives.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Lindsey Anderson.
Mormon women are happy. They are willing and ready to serve. They serve their family and their friends. A life of these services is not one big chore, but a fascinating journey of self-confidence and love. Women and men are not the same. They are equal but different. For example, you cannot justly say a horse and a lion are not equal. They are both majestic, incredible animals; however, they are different. You cannot treat these creatures the same, nor do they have the same lifestyles. Men and women were not created to be interchangable in their roles. Each is needed to fulfill specific duties. Just as it is natural and important for a man to provide for and protect his family, it is equally natural and important for a woman to take on the primary nurturing of the children. Together the husband and wife care for and discipine their children. They must agree on family goals and then work together to reach them. Show more Show less
