Hi I'm Lucine

I was born in California, but grew up in Utah. I am married with 4 children and 10 grandchildren. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Although I was born in California and lived here most of my life, my parents moved to Utah when I was 7 and moved back to California after I graduated from High School so I consider myself as having "grown up" in Utah. I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. I also enjoy reading, crocheting, knitting, sewing, and traveling. During the first 7 years of my marriage we lived in Utah, Iowa, and Florida giving birth to 3 sons, one in each state. Our last move was back to California where we had our daughter and where we have lived for over 43 years. My husband and I owned a Bed and Breakfast for 10 years, but for most of my life, my occupation was that of a wife and mother. Being home allowed me to be involved in my children's activities at school, in sports, and scouting. I enjoy my family which includes 4 children and their spouses and 10 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a product of a strong Mormon pioneer heritage and even though I was born into a Mormon family, I have had to gain my own testimony. It was never hard for me to believe in latter-day prophets called of God, or to know that the Book of Mormon is a book of scripture; however I remember each time I received confirmation in my heart and mind that these things were true. Prayer, scripture reading and attending church help keep my faith strong and my testimony of Jesus Christ and his teachings growing. I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

How I live my faith

I have a strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have ample opportunities of growth, both spiritually and temporally. By giving talks at Church, teaching classes or serving in leadership positions, I have gained confidence and experience that I wouldn't have had otherwise. I try hard to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ.
