Hi I'm Jacqueline

I love being a Mormon.

About Me

By staying close to my Father in Heaven through daily scripture study and prayer, I find the strength I need to be the kind of person I want to become. I enjoy reading, gardening, learning, and teaching. My husband and I have 5 beautiful children. They are my biggest challenge, and my greatest joy. I currently homeschool all of them, and have found this to be a very rewarding experience for us. I find focusing on my family daily helps me to prioritize the rest of my life in a way that makes for a happier me.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it brings great peace and joy into my life.

How I live my faith

By staying close to my Father in Heaven through daily scripture study and prayer, I find the strength I need to be the kind of person I want to become. I am currently the president of the women's organization, called Relief Society, in the congregation/ward we attend. I reach out to the women of the ward in many different ways to help encourage a more personal relationship with their Heavenly Father and also with their Savior, Jesus Christ. I seek to fulfill all of my roles through the promptings of the Holy Ghost. My husband and I bring our family to our church meetings every week, we have Family Home Evening with our children weekly as well, we worship in the temple closest to us as frequently as possible, and seek to reach out to others who are in need around us in meaningful ways, as the Savior would.

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Jacqueline
Self-reliance and emergency preparedness are important because when we have taken care of ourselves we are in a better position to help others. It is like on an airplane when they talk about plane safety, they always mention that we need to put our own oxygen mask on first. I believe that is what we should do in regard to our personal preparedness. If we become self-reliant, and are prepared in emergencies, we have greater strength and resources to reach out and help others in times of need and is stressful situations. Our church teaches, "If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear." Doctrine & Covenants 38:30 - I believe there is great truth and wisdom in that statement. Show more Show less
