Hi I'm Lina (li nay')

I live in Arizona USA and I love being a wife, mom and grandmother. I love uplifting music. I love America. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up on a farm outside a small community in Oregon was where I spent my early years. Our family had first hand experience with the law of the harvest and we learned to work hard. The influence of dear friends in my youth who shared my values has been a blessing throughout my life. I began singing, playing the piano and violin as a child and I earned a university degree in music. Performing, directing, and teaching uplifting music gives me inner strength and draws me closer to Heavenly Father. I have encouraged my children and grandchildren to also use their musical talents to bring them joy and to serve those around them. I try to influence my family, friends and associates by promoting family values and principles of my country's constitution in my community, state, and nation. I love America and the inspired foundation upon which it was established!

Why I am a Mormon

I know my Heavenly Father loves me and watches over me. When our family was involved in a serious car accident, many miracles confirmed that He was protecting us from harm. I have received personal answers to my sincere prayers and feel His tender mercies every day. There are many conflicting messages and concerns in our world. I know I can hear the clear direction of the Lord through His servants on the earth and through the scriptures. I am very thankful for a prophet on the earth today who is the mouthpiece of the Lord! I find peace, joy, and direction as I live the principles of the Gospel. I am so thankful that my Heavenly Father has provided the way for me and my family to return to live with Him again. Through prayer, study, and living the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I have a firm testimony that God lives and loves me personally and that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. No other blessing in life compares to my faith in Jesus Christ which influences everything I do and who I am.

How I live my faith

I desire to be an example of the teachings of Jesus Christ to everyone with whom I have contact and through everything I say and do. I want to emulate His love. The stories of my ancestors and of the many pioneers who have gone before have always inspired me. By linking my ancestors and posterity throughout the generations by performing sacred temple ordinances, we can be eternally connected together. I love serving in the temple to accomplish this great work! My husband and I have recently accepted a mission call and are excited and anxious to begin serving together as full time missionaries! We desire to share the joy we feel every day by bringing others to Christ.
