Hi I'm Linda

I'm a Colorado native, a wife to a wonderful husband, mother of 5 great adults and grandmother of 15 adorable kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and my kids are my best friends. I find great satisfaction in serving my growing family and am blessed to have all of my children and grandchildren live close by. I love to make things beautiful and find joy in painting (walls), cooking, making quilts for my grandchildren and serving in the Temple. I love to learn new things and share what I've learned with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a less active Mormon family. We would go to church sporadically but I remembered the good feelings I had there. As a teenager I read the Book of Mormon. As I read, the spirit of the Lord was with me, and I knew that the book was true. It is the only book that contains within its covers a promise that by divine power the reader may know with certainty of its truth. I wept as I read the account of Christ visiting the people in the Western hemisphere after his crucifixion concerning whom He earlier had said, "And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd" (John 10:16). Learning how much our Father in Heaven loves us has been a process for me. When I was young I thought, God has so many children here on the earth, how could he possibly know me and what I need? As I've lived my life and seen my prayers answered time after time, I've learned that I am watched over, loved and cared for. I've come to understand that God, our Heavenly Father loves us. Jesus Christ loves us and has given his life so that we may return to the presence of our Heavenly Father. The teachings are clear. My questions have answers. It's all so logical and simple.

How I live my faith

I love reading about Jesus's life here on the earth and trying to be like him. He was such a perfect example of service, mercy, love, compassion, obedience and forgiveness. I have a long way to go but it is so helpful to have such a wonderful example to follow. I enjoy going to the Temple every week and find joy serving there. The peace the Gospel brings to my heart is precious to me.
