Hi I'm Lyndsie

I'm a sister to four younger brothers. I am a purple lady who loves all things purple. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! My name is Lyndsie, and I am a Mormon! My family means the world to me! I adore my four younger brothers, and each of their unique personalities, strengths, and their abilities to be the lights they are in my life! I look up to my mother and father a lot. My mother is incredibly selfless, loves trying to be in ten places at the same time, and thinking of others! I treasure my father because of how much he truly loves my mother and us kids. He and my momma work through everything as an inspiring team. I am in the middle of my sophomore year in college, and am hoping to be working towards something medical as soon as I can figure out what my major is! I love everything about how the human body works. Our bodies are truly miraculous machines! To support my goals, I work at a local pool as a lifeguard and swim teacher! Being a lifeguard has helped me learn to be patient, and being a swim teacher to 3-5 year olds has taught me to even more so! Right now, I am anxiously looking forward to serving a mission to Argentina in the next few months! This opportunity to be a sister missionary means a lot to me! I cannot wait to serve and love the people there as I share what I believe! I know I can do hard things, and I consider my ability to love and accept others is one of my greatest strengths. My faith is central to the way I live!

Why I am a Mormon

Having been born into a Mormon family, I was introduced to the doctrines taught in my church from a young age. However, as my beliefs have been tested throughout my life, I am firm in my faith. Being away from family and parents at college, I made the choice to stay active in my church and live in a way that reflects what I believe. I know that my parents respect my choices, and they recognize that I have chosen to be a Mormon, or as we prefer to be called, a "Latter-Day Saint." I believe my ability to do the most good in the world is affected by this choice in a significantly positive way. As I have prayed to God about what I believe, I feel a special peace in my heart, and know these things to be true. Through study and prayer, I know that the events described in the Book of Mormon actually happened, and that the principles and doctrines taught within its pages are true.

How I live my faith

In my church, I have been asked to serve in various capacities. In the past, I have taught children as young as six years old up to college-age adults! I have held few leadership positions where I have led meetings, organized events, and have visited those in need. Besides such specific callings, I, along with other women, am assigned in a system to visit and be visited by other women! As pairs, we visit ladies in our church group and make sure their needs are being met and that they know that they are loved. Every woman is assigned to visit and be visited. Everyone is helped, and if there are needs that require help from leaders or the gathered efforts of other ladies, there is a way to find out and help! I have had rewarding experiences being involved in this in my church!
