Hi I'm Zina

I've excelled in IT by accident. I am married to a non-member. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work in the ever-expanding IT field. I received my career in IT by divine intervention. My relationships with my Heavenly Father and my husband are the two most valued possessions I have.

Why I am a Mormon

Repeated and continuous conversion! I think every member - every Christian in general - has encountered a time that they find themselves struggling with their faith. I've fought more of these battles than I can count. Thankfully, though, with every battle, my testimony has shone through triumphant. I love those around me tremendously, which means I also care deeply about their opinions. Being married to someone who isn't a member of the Church has strengthened my testimony in so many ways I never knew were possible. The greatest battle, and lesson, I've learned through the Holy Ghost (with the help of my husband) is: being Christ-like means having patience and love towards everyone. Even those who may make it difficult for you, or those who you don't understand. The Spirit of the Gospel is Love.

How I live my faith

I like to make sure people know who I am and what I believe. It is a wonderful motivation for me to live the Gospel to the fullest. I've seen the most blessings in life when I do everything in my power to be like Christ; and oftentimes, the blessings are the result of much personal sacrifice.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

In the scriptures, Jesus Christ frequently focused on and blessed those who were less well-off than the majority of the people. We, as Mormons, are encouraged to emulate Christ in our actions. The welfare programs in the Church are in place to help those who are truly struggling, so that they not only survive, but also have the opportunity to learn the best ways to become independent. This way, they will have more self-worth and joy as they rely less on the Church welfare and/or others to simply stay alive. Show more Show less
