Hi I'm Lyndsey

I am a friend to just about anyone I meet, a wife, mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the last born of 4 kids. We moved around Texas a lot when my siblings and I were young, and ended up living in Maryland for 6 years (through my elementary education). As a child, I never had a problem making new friends as we moved to new places, and still to this day can make a friend very easily. My husband is on the opposite side of things in regards to making friends, and always has been. We both believe (as do several family members who are close to us) that he has Aspergers Syndrome. We have two wonderful children (a boy-5 & a girl-8 months) who are very sweet and loving children. Our family of four loves to go on road trips for vacation and we get magnets from each state we visit. One day, we'd like to have all 50 state magnets plus any magnets from any extra places we go.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a 3rd generation LDS Texan. My grandparents on both sides joined the church at different times in their lives, and my parents raised myself, and my 3 older siblings in the church. I rebelled a bit as a teenager, which most kids do, and realized that I was way happier when I was living the gospel and doing the things that I had been taught at church. After high school, I started doing things right and realized how much I LOVED serving other people by helping them out in their times of trouble. I can feel His love when I sit and read the scriptures (Book of Mormon & Bible), and when I do these things, I learn what it is to be Christian, and feel happy to be able to say that I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

The church of Jesus Christ has many opportunities for service, and I love feeling God's love through those services that you just can't find very easily in other places. I love to help others and have enjoyed teaching young children, cub scouts, and have helped to plan events for the families in our local church members, among other things. I remember when I was a part of the Singles group at church, I went to a place called the Bishop's Storehouse (which is like a grocery store that people can go if they are in need) and I was able to help people by stocking shelves and loading up people's carts & cars with the food their family needed. It was so humbling and I realized then how much the Church really does follow in Jesus Christ's teachings in helping others and loving one another. There are no judgement, or hateful words. Only kindness and love. Though I can't serve in these ways right now, I do help out with people in my own area whenever I can by providing meals, watching kids, etc if and when other families are in need.
