Hi I'm Lindsey Redd

Hi I'm Lindsey! I am a college student and a dancer. I am a daughter, sister, and a twin. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of six kids, but I don't share a birthday with my twin! I love being part of a big family! I am a college student studying ballet, but aspiring to become a physical therapist. I have danced since I was three, and although dancing is a love/hate relationship for me, I have stuck with it. When I was a sophomore in high school, I found out I had bone spurs in my ankle, which affected the way I danced. As a senior in high school, I got surgery to remove the bone spurs, and now as a sophomore in college, my bone spurs are back. Being chronically injured in the dance world is difficult, but my injuries have helped me to see ballet and my life from a different perspective.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a mormon was not always the path I wanted to take, but my faithful parents made sure I stuck with it. It wasn't until after high school that I started to discover who I was and why I still went to church. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I love being able to say that. I stay faithful to this church because I have taken part of the happiness and peace that comes through living the gospel. Being a part of this church gives me so much hope because I know that I have a Father in Heaven who is by my side to help guide me. Having that knowledge gives me hope and helps me realize that in any hardship that I am not alone. My Heavenly Father loves me, and I want to share the message of his love.

How I live my faith

In my Young Single Adult ward, I am one of the ward organists. I enjoy attending church each week because I am surrounded by great people who make me want to be a better person. I also attend Institute during the week where I go to school. Many people ask me why I take the time out of my schedule to go to my "mormon classes." I go to Institute so I can be surrounded by good friends and just good people in general. I make Institute a priority because I walk away feeling one million times better than I did before I walked into the building.
