Hi I'm Jeanne

and I love the Lord!

About Me

I am 61 years old and have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints since my family was converted in 1958. I am married to Doyle H Brown and have eight remarkable children and six beautiful grandchildren. My husband and I recently served a mission in the Asia North Area and we lived in Tokyo. Elder Brown served as an Area Medical Adviser to 12 missions in South Korea, Guam-Micronesia and Japan. Our two year tenure came to an end, at which time we returned to our home in Washington State. We are currently serving in a Spanish Branch, teaching English with two other couples.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I asked God in sincerity and with the intent to act upon my answer. Under these circumstances EVERYONE'S prayers will be answered. I read the Book of Mormon and asked if it was true. The answer was yes and my life has been filled with meaning, direction and joy. The answers to "where did I come from, why am I here and where am I going" have been answered and through the power of the atonement I know I can return to my Heavenly Father's presence. There is no peace on earth, either individually or among nations without Christ and His atonement!

How I live my faith

Attending church to be renewed by the Spirit and partaking of the Lord's sacrament are vital to my faith, as is attending the House of the Lord (temple) where my husband and I perform work for our deceased ancestors. Vicarious ordinances for the dead offers all mankind the opportunity to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for we know that God is no respecter of persons, but will bless all who keep His commandments. Service in the Church is a blessing and a joy. The happiness that comes from serving the Lord and our fellowman is beyond description!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Jesus Christ. Just like the Bible, this scripture teaches us to love God and keep His commandments. Just like the Bible set in the Middle East and written by prophets, the Book of Mormon was written by prophets and relates incidents from ancient inhabitants of the American continents to teach the same principles of faith, repentance, baptism and love of God. It was brought forth by the power of God and stands as a witness to the world of the divinity of Jesus Christ! Show more Show less
