Hi I'm Lindsey

I'm a writer, a singer, an artist, an actress, a traveler, a vintage-lover, a geek, a redhead and MOST IMPORTANTLY, I'm a Mormon

About Me

~ I'm currently a college student trying to sort out her major (English or Psychology? Do I add the Creative Writing minor? What about Theater Arts Studies?!). ~ I'm an enthusiastic fan of Harry Potter, Shakespeare, Doctor Who, Fablehaven, Lord of the Rings, Downton Abbey, Broadway musicals, Marvel, Sherlock, Jane Austen, etc, etc... ~ I think my ideal afternoon would be spent wrapped up in a blanket with a book of Mary Oliver's prose in one hand and a mug of herbal tea in the other as rain patters gently against the window... *sigh* ~ I'm also rather obsessed with behavioral psychology, especially when it comes to personality. Myers-Briggs is my current area of study/obsession (I am an INFP). ~ I'm a tiny bit of a history nerd, mostly when it comes to the cultural aspects like fashion, literature, architecture, music, and art. ~ I really enjoy photography and thrift store shopping. ~ If I could, I would travel the world with nothing but a suitcase, a camera, and a notebook.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born as a Mormon, I don't think I became truly converted to this Church until my early teens. When I was eleven, my family experienced the tragic loss of my younger brother to cancer. It was a time of extensive introspection on my part. How could God let this happen? Do I really believe in this church? I discovered a few years later that I genuinely did. I have been taught all my life that God, our Heavenly Father loves us all individually and that he has a plan for our eternal happiness. In my heart, I knew that my brother was safe in his hands and that I would definitely see him again. That, as the basis of my testimony, has never led me astray and I have felt the blessings of my faith in many, many ways.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in the little things I do each day: prayer, scripture study, dressing modestly, abstaining from harmful substances, and in all things trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ. For the next 18 months I will be serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As such, all of my time will be devoted to teaching others of Christ and serving those around me. I am so excited for this opportunity to show my Savior how much I love him.
