Hi I'm Lindsay

I'm all about being happy and I love to make people smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married the love of my life and high school sweetheart in the Logan, Utah Temple last September. I love building a life and creating a Christ-centered home with him. I am the second oldest of five kids. I have been playing piano since I was six years old and I am in love with good music! I may be young, but my heart is stuck in the past when it comes to music - my favorite artists are Peter, Paul, & Mary, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver, ABBA, and Journey. Tennis and dance make my heart smile. I love yoga, nature, and all things natural. I am a Utah State Aggie graduating in Child Development in May this year. I teach preschool I've won a few piano, tennis, and dance awards in my time, but none of that matters to me like the friends I've made while being involved in those activities! I love to knit, crochet, and to do other crafty things. I love dreaming up ideas and trying new ways to make them a reality. Another thing I love to do is shop around at flea markets, yard sales, and thrift stores to find things to repurpose/resell. I love bargains and secondhand treasures! My favorite color is yellow and it could be said that my color preference reflects my optimistic attitude and affinity for sunshine. I battle anxiety and depression daily but I push on and try to combat stagnancy with learning something new or creating something! I find cooking to be therapeutic and I love to tidy my home when I get antsy. Each day I face fears and find more strength through my Savior.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born of goodly parents into a family who has always been active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am a Mormon because I know Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon is true, that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church upon the face of this earth today. When life gets me down, and that is considerably often due to my onward struggles with anxiety and depression which I have experienced since my early childhood, I know there is One who I can turn to who will never let me down, and that is my Elder Brother and Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him, I could have never made it through my dark nights and pain-filled days. Christ is the only one who will ever be able to understand my pain completely, and it is such a comfort to me to know that He does, in fact, understand me and that He died for me; that He loves me enough to die for me, He loves me enough to weep with me, and He loves me enough to have descended from "His throne divine, to rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine", as the LDS hymn "I Stand All Amazed" puts it. In fact, He loves me enough to want me, an imperfect daughter, to be able to return to live with Him in happiness and peace again. He wants me to understand and follow His plan. I know this because I have felt His love. I feel it when life gets too hard to stand and I am brought to my knees in prayer. I feel it when I am lost in a stupor and someone reaches out to me and offers me a taste of God's love through service. I look forward to the day when my thoughts will be at rest and my mind will be at ease; a day that only my Savior, Jesus Christ, could make possible. I know He lives and that He loves me. He is my Savior and Redeemer.

How I live my faith

I try to seek out every opportunity to serve my fellow men and women. I make it a goal to be the best person I can be and live the way I know is right, and the way God has asked me to live. I stand for truth and righteousness, even when I stand alone. I find great power and strength to live through my everyday trials and struggles when I know I am who I need to be - an advocate for good. My husband and I pray daily for strength and direction as we learn how to make our marriage strong. I rely on my Savior for comfort and peace when I am filled with anxiety and when my depression makes it hard to even get out of bed. Knowing that I am loved and that He suffered and died for my pains, temptations, and sins, so that He can perfectly understand me and succor me, gives me great strength. He has also blessed me with beautiful friends and family members to help me in hard times. I seek to strengthen those relationships by living and loving the way Christ does. I am not perfect, but I have His perfect example to follow.
