Hi I'm Lindsay

I keep a journal, I study Humanities, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am someone that loves to see plays and go to history or art museums. I really enjoy things that stimulate my imagination and make me think. Right now, I am a college student on the fence between studying humanities or history. Finding out what to do with your life - the struggle is real, but I'm grateful I can rely on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to guide me through it and the rest of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was about 13 years old, I decided to read the Book of Mormon. I finished it on a day I'd convinced my parents I wasn't well enough to go to school. I lay on my bed as I plowed through the last book or two of the Book of Mormon. I remember feeling so good about it once I'd finished. I prayed for a testimony of Joseph Smith and it was as clear as day that this was the true church of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

In the past, I have visit taught those in my ward in college. I really enjoyed that. I also made a friend that wanted to get baptized and I was able to share my testimony with her, which ultimately led me to serve a full-time mission. And I know that the Lord prepared me for my mission through many experiences like that, where I shared my testimony and felt the Spirit. I'm so grateful for that!

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Mormons totally believe in the Bible. Because it came from prophets and apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, we treasure it as His word. We often draw upon its teachings in our church. However, we also believe that God also had prophets and apostles in another part of the world - the Americas. Their writings and testimonies can be found in the Book of Mormon, translated by Joseph Smith. Because the Book of Mormon came from prophets and apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, we treasure it as His word also. To me, the Book of Mormon completes the message of the Bible. Show more Show less
