Increase your confidence in your self-worth and in your ability to contribute good things to the world.
Watch a recording of a live event featuring Lindsey Stirling, a returned missionary and world-famous entertainer. Youth around the world had the chance to ask Lindsey questions, moderated by Young Men general president David L. Beck and Young Women general president Bonnie L. Oscarson. Lindsey shared her story—including how she learned to recognize her worth, how she shares the gospel, and how she has risen above criticism to make a unique contribution to the world. Lindsey performed live songs at the event―one song featured special guest Lexi Walker singing “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” arranged by Kendra Lowe.
Lindsey Stirling is a dancing, hip hop violinist and a self-made success story. Her video “Crystallize” has over 100 million views on YouTube. Lindsey is a returned missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In her I’m a Mormon profile she talks about how her faith has helped her overcome trials in her life, including an eating disorder. She’s known for her unique personality and musical style, incorporating dubstep into her music and covering songs like “Radioactive” by Imagine Dragons and even her own versions of the “Zelda,” “Skyrim” and “Pokemon” theme songs. Lindsey said, “I was told by so many people that I wouldn't succeed because I was too different. Ironically, the very reason that people watch my channel and travel thousands of miles to see a show … is because it’s different. God didn’t send us to earth to just blend in. We are here to share what makes us unique.” Whatever Lindsey does, she does it in her own way, and she enjoys having a close and direct relationship with her fans.
