Hi I'm Lyndsey Myers

I grew up in Coeur d'Alene Idaho. I love writing poems and art of any kind. I'm a Graphic Designer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a missionary in the Mesa Arizona mission. I love teaching the gospel and learning from the people around me. I also love Graphic Design or anything artistic. My favorite from of art is calligraphy and color pencil. I want to learn how to paint and use sketch. I'm in love with music. I play the piano currently but have also tried my hand in cello and violin. One of my favorite past times is to sit at the piano and sing and play hymns. Music is a big part of my life. Everyone in my family sings and the best time of year is at Christmas when we all go caroling to all our family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church so much. One reason why I am a Mormon the love I feel from the members of this church. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints church is centered around service and helping others. This is the true church and I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet of God. He restored this church on earth through the power of God. I know the President Thomas S. Monson is here to guide us and that he receives inspiration from our Heavenly Father. I love this church.

How I live my faith

I was recently in charge of the youth Christmas service project in my church. It was based off the parable of talents, Matthew 25: 14-25. We gave each youth 5 dollars and told them to go "increase their talents". The youth then had 6 weeks to go and earn as much money as they could with the 5 dollars they were given. The earned this money by using there talents. At the end of the Project we had raised about $2500 dollars and we gave 3 families Christmas. The neat thing about this project was each youth was given a person to shop for. We had a big night where we went shopping for the families with the money they had earned. Each youth were given a child or an adult to shop for and then we went back to the church, wrapped everything and delivered it to the families. It was an amazing experience and the faces of the little children was priceless. I particularly remember a 14 years old boys face. He couldn't stop smiling and I could tell how much this service meant to him. It was a life changing project and taught the principle of service extremely well. I hope that the youth involved learned about the importance of service and the faith that goes along with it.
