Hi I'm Lindsay Brown

I lived in Arizona for 19 years, I like to play volleyball and tennis, I love to love people, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I graduate from high school in 2014. I have worked as a nanny for over a year since I graduated. I decided to submit for a mission and am now serving one. I am 19 years old and am part of a mixed family. My mom married my step dad (who I just call dad) when I was seven years old. I had two sisters and one brother and my step dad had three boys and a girl. Yes, there were then eight kids after my parents got married. when I was almost ten years old my mother then had a baby girl, which now makes it nine kids! I love growing up with my big family and loved how I never really got bored--I had eight built in friends! I love my family and hope to start one of my own in the future. When my mom and biological dad were splitting up I had a hard time with it. I would want my mom to get back with my dad and was angry enough I threw a card board box across the room when I found out my mom was getting remarried. I did not like the idea of my mom getting married to someone else. Because of the circumstances I did not get to visit my father. I got used to my new dad over the years and became more and more comfortable around him. I have spent hours at a time talking with him about deep things and spiritual things. Our relationship has grown stronger over the years and I am so thankful that he is my dad. I am blessed to have him as my dad now.

Why I am a Mormon

I originally was born into the Mormon church and lived it my whole life. Although I was born into this faith I have had my own experiences. My largest spiritual growth starting point was probably girls camp. I have felt the spirit there and have felt my testimony grow and my relationship with my Heavenly Father grow. During that time I was in a young women's group called, well Young Women's. My testimony has grown throughout Young Women's and being a youth in my church was a real support to me and the decisions I made everyday to prepare for the life ahead of me with its very important decisions to come. One very special experience I had was while I went to this one week program called EFY. It was there that I felt the love of my Savior so strongly and new that He loved me and that He was there and willing to help me through the hard thing I was going through then. I know that He suffered for our sins and our afflictions and I am truly grateful for that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day through the choices I make. I try to be kind to others and like to give smiles to total strangers on the street-trying to let them know they are important and loved. Each week I go to my church meetings and avoid doing weekly things such as shopping on the Sabbath day. I partake of the sacrament each week to renew my baptismal covenants I mad when I was baptized. An important thing I do is even when things get hard is I never give up on my faith.
