Hi I'm Linda Hatch

I love being a Mom & Grandma! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work for an attorney as an executive assistant. I'm mother to 3 wonderful children and grandma to 7 grandchildren (hopefully more!). I love to be with my grandkids as much as possible. My husband is an awesome person who works hard and serves faithfully in the church. We have been married since 1979. I love to bake, sew, crochet and quilt. I enjoy all kinds of music and singing.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. I was lucky to be raised where the church is strong and I have a very good family and friends who have set good examples for me. I learned early in my life that service is the key to happiness. My testimony of the Gospel is strengthened each time I read the Book of Mormon. Every time I read I learn something new. Knowing my Heavenly Father knows and cares about me helps me to

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a teacher for the women of our church. I have taught all ages in the church from the nursery to the children 3-11 and the young women 12-18. I have worked at our elementary school as a reading specialist for the children in 1st and 2nd grades and have worked in the library there as well. I have organized and helped with plays and activities for the school and in the church.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Linda Hatch
I love that the family is such an important part of the Gospel. My family is everything to me. I am grateful for the strength my family gives me. Every person is important to our Heavenly Father. The Church teaches that we will live with our families forever if we are worthy. It is important for me to know that we don't lose a person when they die; that we will see them and enjoy them again. This knowledge brings comfort to my sole and helps me keep in perspective our relationships with each other. It helps me focus on what is important and what is not. I realize that we are all brothers and sisters to our Heavenly Father and that everyone, not just our immediate families, need our love. Everyone has a purpose in this life and we need to help each other to succeed. Show more Show less
