Lin was a devout Roman Catholic who dedicated herself to the service of the Lord through the intercession of the Blessed Mother and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

She was active in the home-schooling community, and committed herself to prayer, humility and the Sacraments. She gave of her time and faith freely. Among many other things, she provided religious instruction to adults at Holy Family Church in Seattle. For her children, her family and her friends, her primary concern was always and explicitly their devotion to Christ and the salvation of their souls. She loved animals.
