Hi I'm Lindsay

I grew up in Las Vegas. I love to read. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 4th year college student, majoring in American Studies. Visiting with people, volleyball, running, yoga, and eating well are some of many joys in my life. I love to read, write, think, laugh, hike, and admire this beautiful world and the beauty in each person.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe that God deeply loves His children and invests Himself in our lives, providing us with instruction to draw closer to Him and be happier. One way that He reaches out to us is through guidance offered by inspired leaders--prophets--and through His words to others in the past--the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I am a Mormon because this church is His Church. This testimony has been built through many years of teaching, reading, thinking, pondering, and praying and I'm still developing it, but I know that as I earnestly seek, God will recognize my effort and answer my prayers by confirming what I believe through the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I am about to serve a mission for my faith in Tokyo Japan. There I hope to share with others the joy and blessing that the gospel of Jesus Christ is my life for a period of 18 months, leaving all other occupation behind. Right now though, I attend church meetings and often talk with and listen to others about their lives.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Lindsay
Mormon women are diverse and vibrant. While Mormon women share many of the same values--such as family togetherness, faith, and hope--they each express it in a way that is unique to them. Mormons do believe in equality of men and women. Both genders are important, precious, and capable of great things. However, Mormons do believe that men and women have differing roles and responsibilities--especially in regard to family life. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Lindsay
As Mormons, we are taught to love all people as beloved children of God and to serve them in anyway that we can. People matter. ALL people matter. As such, the Church strives to help any who are in need and encourages its members to do the same. In one of my favorite talks, our current prophet, President Thomas S. Monson reminded us that "Time passes. Circumstances change. Conditions vary. Unaltered is the divine command to succor the weak and lift up the hands which hang down and strengthen the feeble knees. Each of us has the charge to be not a doubter, but a doer; not a leaner, but a lifter." Being a "lifter" or one who reaches out to, serves and loves others is most definitely not restricted to only those who are Mormons as well. Show more Show less
