Hi I'm Holly Elizabeth Mix Trinnaman

I'm a young mother of 4 really young kiddos and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am always up for a challenge (I once had 4 kids ages 4 and under) Each day gets one hundredth of a percent easier as they are able to meet their needs on their own as time passes. I feel blessed to be a mother and to raise children that will eventually raise children of their own. I am part of their life to show them good times, to laugh in the hard times, and to let them taste the sweet rewards of living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I went to college out of state on a scholarship thinking I would follow in many of my family members footsteps and study dentistry-however at the end of my first year I learned the Lord had other plans for me. I met my husband and was married a year later. I was able to complete hair school during that year of engagement. Right away we felt excited about having kids and had 4 all about 18 months apart. It was and still is a little crazy but feel lucky to be stewards of these little spirits for such a short time. When I get some free time I enjoy cooking, and learning new recipies. I love to learn and to teach my kids new things. I also love music. I play the violin and piano and sing in our ward choir. If I have time I like to do coupons and keep supplying our families' temporal needs. I am happiest when my surroundings are clean;but because that is pretty much impossible, I have found joy in teaching my children the blessings of having clean and organized surroundings. I consider my home a temple.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church; and have a rich pioneer heritage. However if one is raised in the church like myself or a convert, I believe we must all come to some conclusion reguarding our spirituality; and who we want to spend our resources serving. I received a strong witness of the book of mormons truthfulness when I was at girls camp as a young 12 year old. Tears streamed down my face during a campfire meeting and etched into my soul my commitment to my savior and his gospel. I have come closer to my savior through mistakes i've made and am thankful I have time to work out my salvation.

How I live my faith

I make an honest effort to fulfill all the callings I've been asked to do. I take great care in making sure the 2 sisters I am assigned to visit feel my love and pray they feel the saviors love as well. I try my hardest to be an example of a follower of Christ wherever I go. I constantly screen music, t.v. and movies that our family uses and ask, "Is this something that is going to draw me closer to my Lord". I dress modestly and encourage my 3 girls to as well. I try to use uplifting and encouraging words in my interactions with others. I pray morning and night and whenever I have special needs. I regularly attend our church meetings and help my children to be prepared to learn about Jesus Christ. We also take a few minutes each morning before we send our kids off to school to spiritually edify them. We also try to pray as a family each night and reserve 1 night to spend together as a family; whether its hitting up our local ice cream shop, playing at the park, decorating cookies, or performing service for others. Most of all I try to listen to the promptings of the holy ghost to guide me and direct me in my role as a wife and mother. I feel I have been blessed to come from a strong gospel heritage and want nothing to do with anything that would make my Father in Heaven to discount my divine lineage to him.

What is being a Mormon like?

It is learning your role as a daughter of our father in heaven; and trying to fulfill it as best you can; which is usually pretty much some good, clean, fun! Show more Show less
