Hi I'm Linnette

I grew up in rural MA, USA. My husband and I have raised 6 children. I love being a Mother and Grandmother. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in rural Massachusetts, USA with my brother, sister and parents. I learned to sew, garden, paint and draw, cook, can food and enjoyed travel, camping, ice skating, sledding, biking, photography, reading, journal writing and playing harmonica. My husband and I have kept many of the same traditions with our own six children who have grown up in North Florida. Even though the children have long since left home and married, they are a source of great satisfaction and joy to us, along with our 13 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes sense out of the oft times confusing, cold, and challenging world in which we live. There is a prophet in the world today. He and 12 apostles of Jesus Christ lead the work of salvation in the world. The church has sacred, beautiful temple, dotting the earth, where families may be sealed together forever. Through promises or covenants I make to always remember Jesus and to work to keep His commandments, He blesses, guides and helps me to carry my burdens and to follow His example. As I serve and lighten the load of others, I are blessed. I love the Book of Mormon. It is another testament of Jesus Christ. It contains the word of God in its purity. Third Nephi (a book in the Book of Mormon) is the account of Jesus' ministry in the Americas. It is my favorite part of the Book of Mormon. I know that Jesus lives and guides His work today.

How I live my faith

Since my childhood I have served in "callings" to teach and lead. Those I have served I have learned to love and they me. I have taught children, youth and adult, and have planned and carried out many activities. I have taught "sisters" in their homes, and they have taught me in mine. I have prepared meals for families in birth, death, or illness. Others we have invited into our home for fellowship and fun. As a family we have invited the Spirit into our home through family and individual prayer, weekly family home evening (for instruction, fun and games), family suppertime, and scripture reading. All of God's children are unique and special. My goal is to teach and live that so that all can be bolstered with faith and hope in our Savior, Jesus Christ.
