Hi I'm Linda

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City whose beautiful mountains I miss. I have been married to a wonderful man for over 42 years. We have 4 children and 10 grandchildren whom we dearly love. We lived in San Jose, California for over 34 years where our children were born and raised. We now live in Gilbert, Arizona to be near some of our children and grandchildren. I like to read and spend time with family and friends. I enjoy classic movies such as “Pride and Prejudice,” and good music, especially our Church hymns and children’s songs.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was about 10 years old when I recognized through a personal experience that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers. I felt then and feel now in my heart that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and right. I often feel the Holy Ghost testify, teach, and guide me with divine inspiration. Through the scriptures in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, I learn of Jesus Christ and His gospel. I know that Jesus Christ is Heavenly Father’s begotten and beloved Son. He is our Savior and Redeemer and without his atoning sacrifice, we would have no hope of being resurrected and living with Him and with God, our Heavenly Father, again after our mortal life. He atoned for our sins and He forgives us when we sincerely repent. I love our Father in Heaven and the Lord Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to follow Christ’s example by being kind and serving others. I have spent much of my life working in our children’s organization (Primary). I especially loved teaching Primary children’s music for many years. I also served in our charitable women’s organization (Relief Society) as a leader and teacher and loved the women I served and with whom I served. Presently, I teach a class of 5 and 6 year olds in Primary. My faith in Jesus Christ and His gospel gives me joy and peace.
