Hi I'm Lacy Christensen

I love riding horses, being outdoors, and math. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up the youngest of five children and each weekend of my childhood we would get lost in the mountains of Utah together. At first I hated hiking and complained like the little sister I was. Then as I got older I have learned to love the outdoors more than anything else, especially when it is on the back of the horse. I love riding and running through fields. I have went on millions of trail rides, but if I am not on the trail I love jumping. Flying through the air on a horse is unlike anything else I have ever done and I love it. When the weather is not good I go to college and learn about math and physics. I have always liked solving puzzles and math is my kind of puzzle. Since I was in kindergarten I have always known I wanted to teach. Now I know that I am going to be a math, physics, and statistics teacher in some high school someday. My three dreams in life is to teach school, own a horse ranch, and get married to an amazing man.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS not only because it gives me a social life, but also because it makes me happy. Because of this teaching of this gospel I know that my life is better than it would be otherwise. Living the commandments is not a restriction, it is a blessing. Living free of sin is not just a nice fairy tale, through the atonement of Jesus Christ it is truly possible. I am a Mormon because without it my life would lack direction and a purpose. I am a Mormon because it just makes me happy.

How I live my faith

As a young adult going to school I have been very involved in the church and it is a big part of my social life. I have met wonderful people through attending church and other activities. One of the best parts about the church is wherever I go I know that I can find people that will welcome me and care about me in church. The LDS church is the same no matter where you go and I love the consistency as I have went from school to school and lived away from my family. I live my faith by trying to help others and lift them up through times of trials. I try to not just take but to give back all the blessing I have received from the LDS church.
