Hi I'm Tina

I grew up in Luton, England 30 miles north of London. I study Maths, I love music and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently doing a degree in Mathematics with Economics, and also enjoy many aspects of music including singing and playing the piano and guitar. I also like to read and spend time with friends. I grew up with my family of Mum, Dad, an older sister and two younger brothers. I consider The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to be the most significant, important and influencing part of my life. Aside from the Church, I consider myself to be a very normal young girl who enjoys being surrounded by people I love and having fun.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents converted to the church in their early 20s so I was born into a family where I grew up learning about Jesus Christ and His teachings. I do not remember one specific moment where I knew the Church was true but instead I learned over time of the truthfulness of its teachings. I am reminded consistently of this and the reality of God through the Holy Spirit as I attend church meetings, read the word of God through the scriptures including the Book of Mormon and the Bible and speak to my Heavenly Father in prayer. I am a Mormon because I know my Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to be happy and this is the way to do it. It is because of that love that I am a member of this Church.

How I live my faith

I never proclaim to be perfect but I strive each day to live the way in which my Heavenly Father would have me live and the way Jesus lived his life. This involves abstaining from things like alcohol, drugs of any kind, tea and coffee. I attend Church each Sunday as well as during the week for other meetings. I currently teach a Primary class of children aged 5 each Sunday about basic teachings of Christ and the Gospel of the Church. Throughout the past year of teaching, I have gained a love for the children and learned many things from them. I also like to teach with the missionaries in my area as often as I can as I love to spread the word of God with others and am a first hand witness of the joy it can bring to someone's life.
