Hi I'm Lindsay

My favorite activities are tennis and ping pong. I love to do math. I have 3 sisters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play tennis! I started playing when I entered high school and have enjoyed the game so much. Even though I am not currently on a team, it is fun to get out and play in the early morning when it is still cool and refreshing. I have also met many good friends through playing tennis! They will always be good friends! On the side I also like to play ping pong with my dad and my three sisters. We love to laugh, have a good time, and enjoy the game. I have been attending college for the last 3 years of my life. I am currently majoring in math and have loved every second of it. I also work as a math tutor at my college and it has furthered my desire to teach math to high school students. But most of all, I just love to be happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the LDS church by my parents. They were raised in the church by their parents. But the reason that I am a member is not because I was placed into it as a child. The reason that I am a Mormon is because I have gained a testimony that this is the only true church on the earth today. I have read the Book of Mormon which was translated by Joseph Smith and testifies of our Savior Jesus Christ. As I read the book, I feel the truthfulness of the words and my desire to do good increases every time I read it. This book is truly from God and its words testify of the atonement and resurrection of Jesus Christ who provided a way for each person to return to live with God. If we repent of our sins with sincerity, then we can become like and live with our Heavenly Father once again. And this is a truth that I cannot live without.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church each Sunday. During church I am able to learn more about my Savior Jesus Christ and also how I can change to become more like him. I attend a ward of young single adults and have met so many new friends! I have an assignment in my ward to organize activities for Monday nights. It is fun to come up with wholesome fun activities that all of the people can enjoy. I am also going to serve a full time mission in West Virginia to share with the people what I know about my Savior Jesus Christ and the plan that our Heavenly Father has for us as individuals here on this beautiful earth.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

As you learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from attending church, meeting with the missionaries, and reading the Book of Mormon, you can pray to God, your Heavenly Father, and sincerely ask to know if the things that you are learning are true. As you study and learn and pray with a sincere desire to know, you will be able to feel the Spirit testify to your heart and mind that the church and its teachings are true. Show more Show less
