Hi I'm Lindsey

I love southern food, sunflowers, and my cat, Waffles. Les Miserables is the only movie that can make me cry. Also, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to laugh, eat, and play volleyball. I have a passion for both music and theatre. I also have a slight obsession with chocolate chip cookies. My family means the world to me and I love goofing off with both my older sister and my two younger brothers. Also, I'm a tall girl so I'm really just trying to find a pair of heels I can wear without feeling like a maypole.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the church so it came to a point where I really had to decide whether this was the best option for me. Growing up in the south, there were all kinds of churches everywhere. If this church wasn't true, I had a lot of other options. I needed to know if everything I had heard since I was little about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith was really true, and if it wasn't I needed to go find out where truth was. I read the Book of Mormon in search of truth multiple times and it has never let me down. My testimony didn't come in one moment. Instead, it's been slowly building from the examples of other members, my own personal study of scriptures, and as I've worked to develop a relationship with my Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because there is no other life I'd rather have than the joyful one I have found through this church.

How I live my faith

Christ is the perfect example so I really try to follow Him the best I can. I know He is my brother as well as my Savior and that knowledge and love is what motivates every action. I have found so much refuge in the knowledge that this gospel has provided me. The peace that comes from knowing who you are and who you have the potential to become through Christ is invaluable and needs to be shared. Because both Christ and Heavenly Father have done so much for me, I want to share that love and joy I have found so that ALL of Heavenly Father's children know how much He loves them. That's why I'm serving the Lord in the California, Ventura mission. God is so good and true joy is found only through His Son, Jesus Christ. I love the Californian people, they have helped me to become a better human being. In return, I want to give them what I love most in this world: The gospel of Jesus Christ found only through His restored church.
