Hi I'm Jeanie

Having a blended family is both challenging and rewarding. We have six children and there is never a dull moment.

About Me

I like doing things with family. We go camping, fishing, and other outdoor activities. I am a mom of 6 kids and love being able to stay home and teach them and watch them grow. I am going to college to be a nurse some day when the kids are older. Our family is a step-family and it is hard, but it is rewarding to see the love they have for each other. We have had our share of challenges, but the abundance of love makes up for the struggles. I enjoy spending time with the kids and husband. Becoming a stay-at-home mom was difficult at first, but Heavenly Father has shown me how to be a good mother and how to enjoy the responsibility and the rewards of giving up a career and staying home. The benefits far outweigh the sacrifices. The Lord has blessed us with all that we may need as we keep His commandments and follow Him.

Why I am a Mormon

The happiest times in my life have been spent in the church. I know that even though my family is a mixture of several families, we can all be together for eternity. I love the peace I feel knowing that even though I make mistakes, I can still return to live with my Father in Heaven because of the sacrifice that my Savior, Jesus Christ made for me. Going to church and living the gospel gives me the strength, courage, and hope I need to get through this life's challenges. By going to church and reading the scriptures, I know that being a mom is a sacred responsibility and that no matter what the world says about it, I am doing the most important thing with my time and my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what I believe to be right and good. I know that I will make mistakes. I also know that I can repent of those mistakes and become a better person. I try to do right by my fellow man and to teach my children the same. Service to others is the key to living a Christ-like life.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

We are baptized into the church at the age of eight. If a person would like to join the church after the age of eight, they are taught the gospel by missionaries and given the choice to be baptized. We believe in the sacred ordinance of baptism taught by Jesus Christ when he was on the earth and taught us the way to receive a remission of our sins. Baptism by immersion is the way that Jesus was baptized as an example to all mankind the way that it should be done. Jesus, being perfect, had no need to be cleansed from sin. He performed this act to show us the path we must take to return to live with God. Show more Show less
