Hi I'm Lindsay Hansen

I'm from Utah and live in a small town. I volunteer as a Bone Extractor for the BYU Museum of Paleontology. I am Mormon.

About Me

I grew up raised by my sweet mother and the youngest of 3 kids. My parents divorced when I was 4. Because of this I am very close to my grandparents. In high school I did two years of marching band. I played trombone in marching band my freshman year and then got into Winter Guard my sophomore year. I did Summer and Fall guard the following year. I absolutely love history. In high school I took all of the AP history classes that my school offered. With this great love I did internships at BYU's museums. I did one at the Paleontology museum, where I continue to volunteer, and I did one at the Museum of Peoples and Cultures. I participated in 2 archaeological digs, one at the Old Provo Tabernacle (which is being rebuilt as an LDS Temple) and a site called Wolf Village in Goshen Utah. I am now preparing to go to San Antonio Texas to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that this Church is true. I love the Lord my Savior with all my heart. I have seen and heard and felt too much not to deny it. It is true. I have received feelings of revelation and have felt the Spirit so many times to help me through my trials of life. I have received those trials because the Lord knows me personally, He hears me, and He knows that I can handle them with His divine guidance. Scholar Truman G. Madsen said, "Peace comes when we realize we are not ultimately alone." That is true in every sense of the word when I think of Christ. We are never alone. "One plus God is enough." as Virginia Pearce puts it.

How I live my faith

My mother was a great example to me. She taught me to stay true to the faith. I have been an active member of the LDS church all of my life. I've had numerous callings in my home ward and later in my Singles ward. I also did quite a bit of family history work and did some indexing for a while. I haven't done either of these activities for a while but I have a definite love of history.
