Hi I'm Linnea

I am a sister, a dancer, and a scholar. I enjoy learning about the world and serving others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest child in my family and cherish the relationships I have with each family member. I love being able to work, play, and mature with my family. They are the reason why I love music, particularly music I can dance to or sing with such as country, classical, swing, religious, and show tune music. Even though I've finished my formal education by graduating from college with a Bachelor's degree, I consider myself a lifelong learner. Since graduation, I've learned new skills including cake decorating and car maintenance. I want to continue to learn about other cultures and nations, sewing, politics, jewelry making, and computers which means I have a good list of things to learn about for the rest of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I've chosen to live by the teachings I was raised with because they make me happy. The guidelines and rules of my religion keep me safe from embarrassing and dangerous situations while providing direction, counsel, and strength in my daily life. I have come to understand that we are given commandments from God because He loves us and wants us to be happy. He watches over us and sends little miracles and help according to our needs so that we learn to trust Him and obey Him. As we obey His commandments and counsel we can find true joy as we learn to love and help those around us and strive to live as Jesus Christ did.

How I live my faith

I show my faith by what I do. I study the word of God daily. I strive to keep my promises with God to be a witness of Him and to always act in accordance to all of His commandments every day of my life. I look for ways to make others' lives easier and serve them. I share my talents with others to lift their mood, teach them, learn from them, or simply to strengthen friendships. I pray to God throughout my day so that I can know how to act, who to talk with, or to know if what I am doing is pleasing to Him. Giving thanks to God also shows my faith and trust in Him because I can see better His hand in all I do.
