Hi I'm Linda

I live in Centerville, Utah. We have four children and 14 grandchildren. We are a close-knit happy Mormon family.

About Me

I am a wife, Mom and Grandmother and loving life. I have worked for an insurance company and doctors' offices. I was a Medical Transcriptionist and loved my work. My education is a conglomerate of BYU, University of Utah, and LDS Business College. Weekly in church my husband and I have been teaching our church members how to create and organize their Family History. Now we are retired and spending precious time with family, friends and church activity. I love to travel, golf, hike, ride a bike, snow ski, read and meet new people. My favorite times are spent doing those things with our immediate and extended family. We all enjoy getting together to eat and play games.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Mormon Church. Since I married I have been actively involved in serving in our church. We have raised our children by the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In times of crisis and when things are running smoothly, I have always been prayerful. I bear testimony that when emergencies have arisen, prayers have been answered and our family has experienced miracles that simply could not be explained any other way. I have read the Book of Mormon numerous times as well as the Bible and other church doctrine. The Spirit has confirmed to me that the scriptures are true and that we can get closer to God by abiding by their principles than by any other book. We are blessed to have a living prophet on the earth today. I sustain President Thomas S. Monson as that prophet.

How I live my faith

I live in a religiously active community. We visit and watch out for each other. It is wonderful to live in an atmosphere of love and trust. I also serve in my church by teaching and working with Family History. I have spent more than 20 years teaching, camping with, doing community service with, and having fun with teenage young women. I have also spent over three years teaching and being involved in activities with young single adults. All that has helped keep me 'young.' A highlight of our retired years has been serving two church missions out of the country. We have helped teach others about the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have also supported many who were looking for employment, some who needed help in their illnesses, and others who were in need of friendship. In the Philippines we taught music in nine different communities. Our joy was our reward!
