Hi I'm Lyndsey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Lyndsey, I'm 21 years old and I am a Mormon. As my father was a pilot in the Air Force, I grew up moving all over the United States. Although it was hard at times, I loved it and I wouldn't change the experiences I had for anything. I got to meet many different types people and make lasting friends wherever I went. Most people would consider my family rather large and rather crazy. Having six children, all of them being girls, tends to give that impression to some people! Although we may be large and loud, we have a great relationship and I can't imagine life without them. Currently I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am serving in California, Spanish speaking. Before I decided to serve, I was a student at Brigham Young University persuing a degree in Elementary Education. I plan to finish that degree as soon as I return.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that God lives and that Jesus is the Christ. They know and love me personally. I grew up a member of this church, but I am not merely a member to keep up the family tradition. I have seen the blessings that living the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings. It is humbling, wonderful, and mind boggling all at the same time to recognize everything God has given me personally. I don´t deserve even half of it, yet He loves me so much He gives it to me as I do the best I can to live the life He wants me to. I know that through Christ's teachings and through His Restored church that we can truely experience joy beyond anything imagineable in this life! I know that God lives and that He is my Father in Heaven and that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to suffer and die for me. I know that this is the same church Christ established when we was on the earth and that it has been restored through a modern day prophet! And it is only through His church can we receive all the blessings He has in store for us!

How I live my faith

Life is too good to waste. I live my faith simply, but it shows through everything I do. God has blessed me with everything in my life, and I show my gratitude by living the way I know He wants me to live. Right now I am a full time missionary for th echurch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I spend all day everyday talking to people on the streets of California and inviting them to learn more about Jesus Christ. We teach people about the Restoration of Christ's original church, the Plan that God has for us (why we are here and where we are going after this life), and how they can come closer to Christ by living his teachings and making promises with Him. It is by far the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, but it is the most rewarding thing as well.
