Hi I'm Lindsey Van Alfen

I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm a student at Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the middle of five children. I am a college student who loves learning and getting to know people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I've grown up a Mormon, but as I've gotten older I've had to make the decision for myself of what and who I really want to be. I am a Mormon because I have come to know that this is truly Christ's church. The world can be a dark and confusing place at times- there is a lot that I am uncertain of. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only thing I am really sure of. It has brought me peace, direction, and a sense of purpose countless time throughout my life when I needed it most. This Gospel is joy. It teaches every good thing and has helped me understand my divine purpose and potential. I am a Mormon because it is the truth, and the Spirit has confirmed that to me too many times for me to deny it.

How I live my faith

I go to church with other college students, so I teach lessons on Sunday to all the girls in my ward.
