Hi I'm Linda

I have lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for 48 years. I raised a family and was a school administrator. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a lifelong educator. First, I was an educator as a mother of three little children who were everywhere at once! Now, when they are all in their 40's, I wouldn't trade one moment of the opportunities I had to love and nurture and teach these little ones who, when I wasn't looking, turned into such fine adults. And, of course, the teaching continues with their children. When people say that being a grandparent is the best, they are 100% right. And now those grandchildren are on the brink of becoming parents, too! But, being an educator as a parent isn't all. I spent 29 years working as a professional educator, first as a teacher, then as a principal of a school. Education has always been my passion, my hobby and a great love. I couldn't imagine retiring. But I did retire about 3 years ago. And the teaching just goes on and on and on, but on my own time schedule. Retirement is perfectly fabulous! I love it. Spending the extra time with the grandchildren, making scrapbooks, teaching them to sew, or tutoring in mathematics - it doesn't matter - I am grateful for every single minute I have had with them. I feel blessed beyond words for a life I have loved and continue to love every day.

Why I am a Mormon

OK. Why am I a Mormon? Because I love Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and because having the Holy Spirit to fill me with peace when I make good choices is priceless.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a passion and a joy also. More opportunities to teach abound within my church service. I presently serve in the women's organization. Here I teach lessons periodically, create a newsletter each month, organize service projects, and visit with the women in my ward on a regular basis. But the action of serving and teaching in my ward isn't the best of it. I love to read the scriptures, taking in the lessons that are there for me. I am privileged to communicate with my Heavenly Father and to feel his peace and love on a daily basis. And I have the blessing of being able to keep my eyes and ears open so that I can find those who might benefit from a helping hand as I try to live a life modeled after the life of Christ. It sounds lovely and easy, doesn't it? I will be the first to admit that it is not. I sometimes slip into silly and unproductive behaviors and do things I regret. But Christ died for me so that I can start over again when I slip. And THAT is lovely and also easy! He made it so simple for me. So I'm grateful to have the opportunity to live my faith.
