Hi I'm Lynda

I love working with children! I am a Cub Scout leader; and for the past 25 years I've taught children to sew. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, and a daughter of Heavenly Father. I have had a very happy life—not without trials and challenges—but with a lot of joy and happiness. I have taught sewing lessons for children (here in my home) for the past 25 years. Teaching children has brought me satisfaction as I have seen their progress. I grew up in Idaho, third in a family with 8 children. My husband and I moved to Arizona 25 years ago and have enjoyed the warmer climate. My husband and I love to hike, snow ski, play golf and tennis together, and we love to travel.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised our family in the Church. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. I am grateful for my belief that families can be together forever. Our Church teaches that truth. The Lord gave us our families. I don’t believe He would give us our families and then take them away—so the teachings of the Gospel ring true to me! The Gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy and gives me peace and comfort, even in a troubled world.

How I live my faith

I feel like one of my most important purposes here on earth has been to raise the 5 children that God blessed me with. I have tried to teach them faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and obedience to His commandments. I know that when we do what’s right, we feel true happiness. I’ve tried to teach my children that truth. I enjoy music. I have played the organ and piano at home and at Church for the past 20 years. Giving service by playing hymns and songs has blessed my life, and the lives of others. Serving as a Cub Scout leader these past 2 years has been a highlight of my life. I have grown to love those little boys and to want them to have productive things to learn and do in their lives. I have found that the more I am willing to serve others and share my time, the more fulfilled and happy I have become. To sum up my sentiments, here is a quote from King Benjamin, a Prophet in the Book of Mormon: “…When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God.”

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We don't worship him, but we do have extreme gratitude to him for his sacrifice in helping to restore the true Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. He gave everything, (even his life!), to do the things God asked him to do to bring the true Gospel back to earth Show more Show less
