Hi I'm Linda

I'm a Mormon. I am a migrant from England and have lived in Australia for 49 years.

About Me

Hi I'm Linda I am a wife and mother of 3 and grandmother of 6. I love being with my family, camping,bike riding, boating, reading, cooking and researching family history. My parents, sister, and I migrated to Australia when I was a teenager and although I love this country and am a citizen of Australia, I still love my country of birth and am researching my English ancestors. I have scuba dived in New Guinea and Bali and Australia, and love the beauty I see under the water and above it. I love the Gospel and the knowledge that it gives me, and the answers to the most important questions in life. Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where do I go after this life. This life has a purpose and a plan, and I am part of that plan and so are all of you. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I am happy to say that I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church in 1972 after the missionaries visited my home and taught me about the Gospel and the Book of Mormon. I felt something each time the Missionaries came into my home and taught me. I took up the challenge and read the Book and prayed about it. I felt a need to change my life and as I did and attended Church, I realised more and more that it was a good change and to this day I love attending Church and learning more about the Plan of Salvation and the great hope it gives me. I have a desire each day to do better and to improve. I am not always successful but I know I can repent and keep on trying to be more like my Savior.

How I live my faith

I attend Church and the Temple and I teach the Young Women in my Ward. I try hard to be a good example and to share my beliefs as the spirit moves me. I am far from perfect but I have faith that with the help of the Lord I can achieve great things and help others along the way. I strive to uphold the values that the Gospel teaches, and know that the by doing this I will be happy and hopefully make others happy too. I work at a University and see many young people struggling with issues and I know that having a firm faith and hope in christ will help me to stay strong and achieve my purpose in life. My prayer is that I might help others to find their purpose and to give them the same hope and faith that I enjoy.
