Hi I'm Jacqueline

I'm Proudly South African, I'm a singer/songwriter, I'm a college graduate, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. I came to the USA to study and get a college degree. I am passionate about many things including Social Entrepreneurship, International Development, Psychology and Heath & Nutrition. And I LOVE singing, songwriting and playing the guitar. My hobbies include Tai Chi, collecting good movies and learning other languages... Dankie, Obrigada, Merci, Spaciba, Gracias, Danke, Thank you for reading :)

Why I am a Mormon

because I know that The Book of Mormon is a true book of scripture and that God has again called 12 apostles which are living on the earth right now - lovingly leading us and teaching and reminding us of God's love, commandments and blessings.

How I live my faith

It's a part of WHO I AM and influences the decisions I make. I'm not only religious on Sundays... it's an all-day-every-day kinda thing. I'm not perfect, but I do my best to be a good person, a good Christian, a good friend, sister, daughter, neighbor and world citizen.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Jacqueline
No, we help all people. Mormons are some of the most helpful and friendly people you will meet. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Jacqueline
It's a principle called TITHING, which is a principle taught in the Bible and also in The Book of Mormon. All that we have has been given to us by a loving Heavenly Father. Tithing is a way to show our obedience to God, as it is a commandment. Most people are surprised to learn that Mormon leaders/clergy are not paid. So what happens to all this money you may ask? The Church can use these funds for the upkeep of thousands of buildings, to build more churches and temples, assist the poor and needy and use it for other worthwhile efforts. Show more Show less
