Hi I'm Lindsey Nielson

I'm a dedicated wife to the man of my dreams. I'm a Spanish nerd and I'm completely white. I run for BYU. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very passionate person. I love my husband so much. I love learning different languages, but especially Spanish. I want to teach others different languages and help them adjust to different cultures. I love to read. I love to crochet. I love to run. I am competing in college right now for cross country and track and I absolutely love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I find strength in knowing Christ loves me. I know He does; He loves all of us. He died on the cross for all of our sins. He is our Elder Brother and he did everything for us so we can return back to live with him again. He went through the lowest of lows. He knows how you feel all of the time because he went through that himself. I am a Mormon because I find peace in knowing that I am sealed to my husband and my family for eternity. This means that death does not separate us. We will be Together Forever.

How I live my faith

As of right now, my husband and I serve in a ward where the members are all single. It is a grand opportunity to be an example to them and to help them figure out who they are and who they want to become.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Lindsey Nielson
Not all Mormons are required to serve a mission. It is an honor to serve the Lord wholly for an extended period of time, but sometimes the plan your Heavenly Father has for you is different. The men ages 19-21 are required to go on missions if they are healthy, worthy, and if they truly want to serve the Lord and show their love for Him. Women can serve at 21 years of age if they choose, but we believe that if the young women has a chance to get married and raise a family, she should pursue the latter. Couples, when they reach a certain age, can serve a mission together, as well. Show more Show less
