Hi I'm Lindsay

I grew up in Idaho. Graduated from BYU-I. I am about to serve a mission in Argentina as the mission nurse. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho with my Bachelors in Nursing. I am about to serve a mission in Buenos Aires Argentina as the mission nurse! Growing up in Idaho has placed within me a deep love for the outdoors. As a result, I love hiking, camping, white water rafting, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, and anything else outside! I come from a large family with me being the fourth out of six kids. My family is amazing, loud, fun, crazy, and adventurous. I wouldn't trade them for anything!

Why I am a Mormon

My father and mother both converted before they met. My mother grew up attending different congregations, moved out west, found the LDS church, and has been a member ever since. My father was baptized into the LDS church when he was eight years old, but church was never a large part of his life. Both my parents found the restored gospel and have been strong examples of righteousness my whole life. Because I grew up with parents who were strong members, I never felt like I had to choose for myself to be a member of the church until I moved out and began living on my own. Up to that point I had never questioned my belief in His gospel. My testimony has grown slowly "line upon line, precept upon precept." I know without a doubt that I have felt the influence of the Holy Spirit over the course of my life as I have knelt in prayer and acted with faith to do God's will. One night in particular I remember feeling very alone. I was living in an apartment with seven other roommates while attending school, yet I still felt I was completely alone. I was trying to balance school, work, and social life, and this night in particular was hard. I was facing a very difficult trial and felt I had been abandoned. I remember getting on my knees and asking the Lord to comfort me and help me find peace. As soon as I finished praying, I felt this overwhelming feeling of peace. I knew things were going to work out and that my Savior was there for me. A few minutes later my mom texted me and asked if things were going okay. She said she had a feeling I was struggling and had been praying for me. I know without a doubt that the Lord is aware of each and every one of us. He loves us and asks us to "feed his sheep" in return. It is our duty to become like the Savior and to invite others to come unto Him as well. I have chosen to be a member of this church because I know the teaching of this gospel are true. The Book of Mormon is the word of God!

How I live my faith

I have loved attending different singles wards at BYU-Idaho. I have held various callings including teaching lessons from the scriptures or other church materials. One of my favorite callings was being in charge of organizing fun activities for all the members. Although it took a lot of time and energy, I enjoyed seeing the fun our ward could have together. Some of the activities have included: mud volleyball, cook offs, service, game nights, dances, and more.
