Hi I'm Lynda

I'm a Mormon.....and so happy I am.

About Me

I am single female. I am the youngest of a family of 5. My older brothers have always been very supportive of me and watched out after me. My dad worked for a company that transfered our family every several years. I liked the opportunity to get to know many different people. I went to college but never finished my Batchlor Degree. I had several different jobs that I didnt really like. I finally went into a medical field, X-Ray, and liked it. I then learned about Radiation Therapy and trained in it. I did get my Associates Degree. I took my national boards (in both Xray and Radiation Therapy) and starting working in Radiation Therapy. I really loved working with my patients and did it for 37 years. I am retired now and am doing some of the things I had wanted to do but couldnt because I was working. I like doing all sorts of art work. I do pen & Ink, pencil, sculpture, wood carveing, acrylics, stained glass, and several other medias. As you can tell, I love art. I also like to study Church History and other parts of the Gospel. Genelogy is also facinateing to me. The Gospel has always been an important part of my life and what defines ME.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church, meaning my parents were members of the Church, and I was baptized a member when I turned 8 years old. My parents were very strong members of the Church and exposed me to the teachings of the Gospel. I attended my meetings, attended early morning Seminary classes, read the scriptures and grew in knowledge of the Gospel. My parents would share their love of the Gospel and I loved it more and more. I also came from a long line of strong members of the Church. My great grandfather and his sister learned about the Gospel and were baptized when they were young in Denmark. They came across the ocean and joined the Saints in America. They joined the Saints as they crossed the the plains to Utah, pulling a Handcart. The members on the other side of my family, were also early members of the Church coming from England. They traveled to Utah in a wagon train. I think of the testimony that they all had, to do all these things and the love of the Church that they had. I Love The Gospel of Jesus Christ and have been very blessed to be a member. My testimony still grows as I get older and older. I learn more and am blessed more.

How I live my faith

I try to be honest with those that I know both outside and inside the Church. I am the Neighborhood Watch and Block Chairman for my few blocks in my area of town. It gives me the chance to get to know alot of people and them to know me. As I take my art classes, I try to be an example of the Gospel and be prepared and answer any question that they may have about gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a calling in Church that is called, a Visiting Teacher. I am able to go see the sisters, that are assigned to me and my partner, each month and see how they are doing. We are able to bring a church message to them also. I serve in the Temple one day a week and assist those who come there. We perform ordinances for both the living and the dead to make eternal families. It brings great joy to me and the people we work with.
