Hi I'm Angela Christine Linford

I was born and raised in Mesa Arizona. I am so blessed to have an amazing family in my life. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old and I am currently serving a mission in the California Ventura Mission, Spanish Speaking for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was born and raised in Mesa Arizona. I come from a family of 7 children and all of my siblings have served missions all over the world. I currently have a little sister serving in Idaho Falls and we have seen the blessings pour into my families life. My family has been such great examples to me. My parents are very faithful and they taught all of us to serve, love, and care for others as Jesus Christ would. We love to share our love to people through the spirit of music. I am so thankful for this privileged I have to represent my Savior Jesus Christ and to help other families come unto him.

Why I am a Mormon

I born into the Church of Jesus Christ. I have always felt peace through the teachings of the Gospel. There was a time when I came to know for myself that this Church is Christ's church. I have recieved a witness of the truthfulness through prayer and through the spirit. My mother has been such a great influence in my life. My Mother converted to the LDS church at age 20 and a year later served a mission. She then met my Father at age 30, fell in love and got married in the Temple. She was then blessed with 7 children and has done an amazing job raising us in the Gospel. She is still the only member of the Church in her family but she has been setting an amazing example for her brothers and sisters and they can see a different light in our lives. I have seen so many blessings in my life from being raised in the gospel. I have felt the love of my Savior my whole life. I know that this church is true. I have always had a testimony of knowing this church is true since I can remember. I know that the Atonement is real. I have felt it in my life and it has carried me through all of my trials. I have witnessed the Gospel Change lives out here on the mission and I know that it is because of the Gospel pf Jesus Christ. That is some of the many reasons why I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I know that God is my Heavenly Father. I know that he has a perfect plan for me and for all of his children. I know that through him and through his son Jesus Christ I can overcome any trial that is placed in my path. I know that he answers prayers. I have seen many miracles in my life through the power of prayer and I am so thankful to have a loving Heavenly Father who hears and answers our prayers. I know that he talks to us through his Prophets also. I can always find direction and peace through the teachings of the prophets. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon along with the bible is the word of God. I know that it is true because I have received a witness from the Holy Ghost that testifies that it is true every time I read it. I love the Gospel. It has blessed my family and I can always find Joy through living the teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that I have a purpose and this helps me to have an eternal perspective. I always rely on the Atonement of Jesus Christ to change me and so I can become a better person everyday. That is what the Gospel of Jesus Christ does for us. It helps us change and it helps us reach our potential. It is for every single person who desires to follow Christ.
