Hi I'm Linda

I am a California Girl!! I love my family, I love music and I love being a Mormon!

About Me

Loved growing up in my little town on the west coast. I married my high school crush and we have 6 amazing children, 20 grand children and 8 surf boards hanging on our garage wall here in Texas! I have lived in California, Arizona, Texas, Utah, New Jersey, England and Hawaii where my life has been blessed by fabulous neighbors and friends. ASU graduate and love taking classes and learning. I am a teacher of music. A pre-school and elementary school music teacher. I have taught piano lessons and always involved in some musical production. Music is a huge part of my family and life. In my twilight years, I am learning how to play the violin! Being a grandmother is fabulous!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true. I have studied the scriptures and prayed and know that this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is true. I have read, pondered and prayed to know truth, and received answers to my prayers. I know Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the earth in the latter days. President Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet today. I know that our Heavenly Father loves me as much as he loved his children in the Old Testament and New Testament days. He has given us a prophet today as in days of old. If we listen to God's Prophet today, we will be blessed. I know that Jesus Christ died for me. He is my Savior and I am forever humbled by his Sacrifice and His Atonement, for me. His Gospel has brought peace to my soul and my life for over 50 years. I know where I came from, Why I am here and Where I am going. Knowing the answers to these questions has given peace and comfort to my soul, even during storms in life.
