Hi I'm Linda Jensen

I'm a Mormon and I love Jesus Christ. I know that God lives and is my Father in Heaven whom I love.

About Me

I like people and doing interesting activities. I was married for 27 years, divorced, and have been single for 23 years. I have four children, six grandchildren, and a large extended family that I'm active with. I love the Gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints and try to live according to the standards set by the church. I like professional sports, i.e., basketball, football and hockey. Love to attend any professional game I can (Even witnessed a fist-fight brawl at the Padres baseball game in San Diego a few years ago. And it goes without saying, the chaos that can happen at a hockey game next to the glass - Ducks and Kings). Of course, I love to watch my grandchildren play their sports, which are many and all kinds. I like animals and I have a soft heart towards all animals except insects. At present, I have one pet, a cat named Emmy. I grew up on a farm, but I have not lived on a farm or lived a farm life since I was married in 1964. I worked outside the home for 40+ years for large international companies and presently do at-home computer work for different companies. I just finished Graphic Design school, and my next avocation will be Family Search Indexing for which I was just recently asked to participate in doing by my Bishop. I have had a lot of life-experiences that come with being 68 years old, but look forward to many more rewarding experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe the tenents of the faith to be true. As a Christian, I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints since birth, and was baptized by immersion on October 31, 1953 in Sunnyside, WA. My testimony has waivered at times, only due to making wrong decisions with my life, but I have always truly believed the Gospel to be true, and no other. I believe that God is my Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ was sacrificed to save me for my sins. Christ's sacrifice is the greatest blessing in my life without which I would have no hope of salvation in the Eternities. I believe in life after death, that my body will be reunited with my Spirit and made whole again as is God the Father and Jesus Christ. I love KNOWING I will, again, see my parents and siblings that have passed away. All perfect in Christ. I believe the Book of Mormon is the only true book on earth, and that living by its teachings and that of the Bible, I will be living a true and faithful life that will attain Eternal Life in the Celestial Kingdom of God in Heaven. I DO BELIEVE.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by maintaining my testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints. I read the scriptures, pray constantly, attend church meetings, fulfill church service callings, and I love my neighbors and those that are not my neighbors. If someone needs help and I can in anyway help them, I will. I look for needs that others have that they may not talk about. I love attending Sunday School because that's where I really learn the teachings of the Bible, Book of Mormon and Doctrine of Covenants. I love Gospel discussions about the scriptures to help give me a better understanding.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Linda Jensen
I believe women in the church are absolutely revered and respected with full equality to men. Women, as wives, are what make good men. As they say, "behind every good man is a better woman". I truly believe that male / female equality in the church is for sure. Women serve other members and neighbors who are not members without fail, and service to others is a lifelong calling for men and women, no matter what position in the church, or church service calling, or position in the community. Men and women of the church co-mingle one with another in a friendly manner, and we teach one another equally. Show more Show less
