Hi I'm Trina

I'm a dyed in the wool, hand raised, Mormon Girl.

About Me

I am empty nesting. I raised 5 children. I love being a mom, the whole process. I am the proverbial "Molly Mormon". I love to sew and quilt, I adore gardening and canning. I decorate my home with cozy items from the past, and hand made quilts. I digitized my cookbook and text my children often. I play the piano and organ. I have women friends and teach children in church. I am caregiver to my 91 year old mom. (She's still pretty spunky) I like to go places and do things with my husband. I am a fanatic about family history, and genealogy. Especially since so much is done on the internet. My husband, grown children and grandchildren are the greatest gifts I have. They bring me joy beyond measure.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family. My dad died when I was 14 months old and my mom was pregnant with my brother. My mom raised both of us. My Grandparents were all Mormon, aunts uncles, cousins. My biggest influence was my Mom. She had great faith in God. She knew he would be there for her. And he always was. She loved the Church. She was very respectful of the leaders, and was one herself. We participated in all the activities and programs- as children and as teens. The Church has a program and a guide for all ages. I followed all those guides, and enjoyed them. As a teen in the seminary program, I was taught to read the Book of Mormon and find out for myself that it was true. I did this. Some days later, I felt the Holy Ghost tell me, 'of course it is true'. Perhaps I had always known it, but I knew for sure then. My pathway has been lighted by the teachings of the living Prophet. I have desired to obey and to claim my blessings for that obedience. I love Jesus Christ and want to do all he asks. So, then, I married in the temple, had five children. Raised them in the Church too. Having a family can be challenging, but the Gospel and church were always there to help me. If I had a question, there was always an answer. I felt whole and fulfilled as I followed the path of parenting and family nurturing. My talents and abilities were increased from parenting and serving in the Church. It is a deep and satisfying way to live.

How I live my faith

Im a genealogy nut. I not only do my own but help others at the family history center here in our little town. I could probably do this all day. I also teach the four year olds in Sunday School. Once a year I take the teen age girls to girls camp too. I also play the organ in Sunday worship service. I learned to play the organ just by playing in church. After 30 years, you get pretty good!
