Hi I'm Linda

I live in Auckland, I love frangipanis, Im a full-time missionary in Australia Brisbane I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm the type of person that loves the concept of living life to the fullest regardless of whatever we may go through. I love taking photos and just serving others. I've come to realize the goodness that comes when we serve others and truly does enlighten and draw us closer to the Saviour. At a young age I went through a life and death situation that changed my life forever. I saw my Heavenly Father in a different light and our family learned to place complete faith on our Saviour Jesus Christ. He was our anchor at that dark time of our lives. I wanted to show my love by serving a mission. I have put my education on hold to serve a mission for 18 months. I've put all the desires of my heart to serve my Father in Heaven. I've come to appreciate that while I'm serving Him I will help many of His children to REMEMBER Him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate to be born into the church and at a young age I was taught by my parents the standards and teachings of the Gospel. Coupled with the knowledge gained from attending Sunday Services and various youth learning experiences, I have come to gain my own witness that this is the Restored church of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because its the expression of Heavenly Fathers love for us that the Priesthood has been restored today with every other principle that was taken away from the earth.

How I live my faith

I have served in many church callings most importantly our young children and youth. I used to teach Sunday school and was seminary teacher and I loved it. My mom and I would always find peace when we visit our Sisters in the ward that way we're involved in there lives. Another way that I lived my faith was through my examples in my family, I have come to understand the importance that the most important work to ever be performed in this life will be within the walls of our own homes. For family was our Heaven here on earth. Serving a mission is one of those many examples to my family especially my siblings. As the Saviour exemplified He served with love and humility for those around Him. I too want to emulate the examples of the Saviour, I am not perfect but I know that I can strive to do so through my actions and examples to those around me. I strive to renew myself everyday by keeping His commandments and constantly utilising the Atonement in my life. The foundation of my faith is constantly formed through the trials that I face, it is that very moment that I bear the fruits of my faith whether good or bad. I choose to learn from these trials because of my faith. It was a seed and through constant nourishment it has grown and it will continue to do so as long as I endure to the end faithfully and with obedience and charity for all.
