I have been married to the most amazing man for 26 years, he is my best friend. I have 1 daughter and 4 sons. Being a mom is the greatest accomplishment of my life, and also the hardest! My daughter is married to an incredible man and has blessed our family with the most adorable grandson! I am a GRANDMA! Pretty much the best calling in life! My oldest son is married the most amazing girl! ! My next son just recently added another amazing girl to our family! WE ADDED MORE GIRLS TO THIS CRAZY BUNCH! Our third son is serving a mission for our church; we are so proud of him. That leaves us home with our 17 year old son, who gets to spend the next 3 years with mom a dad.....the house has become very quiet. My Life has brought its challenges; and with Christ as our guide we have seemed to conquer those challenges and move on to the next. I would have to say my greatest personality attribute is that of hard work and determination. I work hard and also love to play hard with my family. I also love POSITIVE ENERGY! I believe in being positive and always looking for the positive!

Mentored by the late Dr. Glenn I. Latham: 1992-2002
Dr. Glenn Latham is an Author and behaviorist. He has written many parenting books. My husband and I had the amazing opportunity to be taught personally by him on how to raise our own children and also how to teach his material. This increased my understanding of human behavior and has been a great benefit to me as a speaker and writer.
Motivational keynote speaker and mentor - Trina Glines- brings to her audience and clients enthusiasm and passion for life. Trina has been married for 26 years and from the beginning of her marriage she had a natural desire to put her marriage first. On a shoe string budget as poor college students, she made sure that they still "dated" and "made 'falling in love all over again' a priority". This natural passion has grown as she has developed and studied the differences between men and women.
Through the years of her mentoring and motivational speaking she has concentrated on "being the best you". As she has advanced in her studies on successful marriages, she has realized that being the best you is the basis of all happy relationships. Trina has watched as close friends have loved and lost. Through those experiences it rekindled her passion to help teach individuals who are looking to strengthen their marriages. Trina has often shared, "Would it be too big of a vision to think that I could possibly have a big enough effect on the world around me that divorce attorneys could lose clients?" Trina believes in dreaming big.
Trina full heartily believes that we are meant to have HAPPINESS in our marriages. She shares no marriage is going to be perfect. Every marriage will experience up and downs. She goes on to share that ALL marriages have 1 attribute in common; they all take work, every single day.
Trina and her husband have experienced many up and downs in their relationship. Audiences and clients connect with Trina because of her candidness concerning her own struggles. One of her motto's is "Everyone is PERFECTLY imperfect." Her enthusiasm for life and for helping others reach their full potential is often infectious. She loves to instill hope in others, helping them ignite in themselves the power of change.
Trina is in love with her husband even after 26 years; she has 5 children and 1 grandson. She is a passionate presenter who also loves to write, and she looks forward to reaching her goal of being an author. When she is not busy being a mom and grandma, spending time away with her husband is her favorite thing in the world; it helps remind her she is a woman and wife first.
