Hi I'm Lillyann Lind

I am about to serve my mission in Nashville, Tennessee. I grew up in a small town in Oregon. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

Right after graduating high school I started working at Target and saving for my future mission. During this time I have been working and attending a lot of church activities and meetings. I really enjoy Institute. It’s an amazing place for adults, 18+, to go and study the scriptures and feel the Spirit. It’s the perfect spiritual boost to help you through the week.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised living the standards and principles of the church. When I got into my early teens I really started to build my own testimony. I was able to learn through experiences and connect them with principles we are taught. I didn’t have to rely on the testimonies of my parents. Each testimony is very personal and has its own timeline. Not everybody gets theirs at the same time. A testimony is never finished, you can alsways learn and add to yours. That’s what I love about it, always progressing. That’s why I am Mormon. This gospel will help you to continue to progress. Heavenly Father has given us so many tools to use. I am blessed and so thankful to be able to say I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving and loving others. Charity is the pure love of Christ and he showed his unwavering love by serving his brothers and sisters. I currently am a teacher and enjoy learning new ways how to connect with those I teach. I am also a ward missionary, which is an amazing opportunity to prepare for my upcoming full-time mission.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Lillyann Lind
Tithing is an amazing blessing to give back to our Heavenly Father. All that we have is His. Giving back ten percent is such a small percentage compared to everything He has given us. Tithing also helps with the construction of temples, chapels, and other buildings. It helps with education, funding the missionary program, and many other important church functions. I love tithing. I have always had a strong testimony about tithing and the blessings that come from it. Show more Show less
