Hi I'm Lindsey!

I love Piano, Frisbee, and I dream of being a mom! I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am serving an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Phoenix AZ! I love being a missionary because I am able to teach others about our Savior Jesus Christ and our loving Heavenly Father who loves us so much! I have 5 brothers and 4 sisters who I love a ton! I love to be outdoors! Boating, hiking, caving, you name it! I love it! I especially love to dream about my future for when I am a mom! I am excited to raise my children in a Christ-centered home! I know this Gospel of which I'm a part is TRUE. And because it is true and brings so much happiness into my life, I will share it with others. One of my favorite quotes "If you trust the Lord and obey Him, ...He will help you achieve the great potential He sees in you." Ether 12:27! Love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints my whole life. So I grew up in the church my whole life, but there came a time when I had to find out for myself if the church was true. So I decided to read the Book of Mormon and pray to ask God if it was true. After I did just that, i knew without any doubt that what I had just read was the word of God. I felt the spiritual witness from the Holy Ghost. It was such a peaceful feeling and i felt so much joy. I knew from then on, that I wanted to spend the rest of my life serving God. That is one reason I am serving a mission. I want to bring others to the same happiness I experience from living the gospel. Even though life isn't always easy, and I still have trials, the gospel of Christ helps me deal with those trials and hard situations, and i can keep moving forward with a steadfastness in Christ. The gospel helps me understand my purpose in life and all the questions of the soul, like where I came from, where I am going and why I'm here on earth. The church is true.

How I live my faith

In The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, i have had many different callings which i have come to love. In my homeward in Tennessee, we have started a new YSA unit which starting out, consisted of 10-12 people, and I was able to help be a part of that and was called to be a missionary helper, helping the unit grow, and as many people have heard, the Lord is hastening his work, and that unit is growing and will soon be a ward we are hoping! I have also been able to be a teacher for the Primary, teaching the little kid's sunday school, which has been a great experience! Even though i am not a great piano player yet, I was able to be the piano player for the YSA unit and that has helped my piano skills very much! I have had so many great opportunities to serve within christ's church and I know many great and important opportunities await for the future!

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

In the book of Mormon in Alma 34 it says this life is the time to prepare to meet God. We have a choice in life whether or not we want to follow God. This life is a test to see whether or not we will follow him and keep his commandments. Although everyone has a different purpose in life, the main purpose of why we are here is to prepare to meet God and to become like him. We can become like him through the atonement of Christ, by repenting of our sins and always bettering ourselves and trying hard to achieve Christ-like attributes. Show more Show less
