Hi I'm Lynsie

I grew up in a military family. I love to hike and rock climb. And I'm a Mormon serving as a missionary in Florida.

About Me

I grew up in a military family, so I have lived in a lot of places in the United States. Moving so frequently was definitely a good experience for me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was a very comforting thing to have in my life throughout all of the moves because it provided something consistent throughout my life. I knew that wherever I went, I would always be able to attend church and continue to learn more about my Savior. I am currently a missionary serving in and around Jacksonville, Florida for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Once I finish up here I will return to Brigham Young University to finish up my degree in Geology. Some of my favorite things to do are hike and rock climb, so I really love living by mountains. I could climb all day and be completely happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I continue to be a Mormon because the gospel has continually helped me through my life. I see blessings in my life that come from doing my best to follow Christ, and I know that by continuing to be obedient I will continue to be blessed. I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church, and contains the completeness of Christ's gospel.

How I live my faith

I have always tried my best to attend church and fill any church assignments that I am given. I live the church standards and try to be brave enough to explain them to those who are not of the LDS faith when I am asked about particular aspects of my behavior. I try to do my best to be a good example and treat others in a Christlike manner. Currently I am living my faith by serving as a missionary for the LDS Church in Jacksonville, Florida.
