Hi I'm Jorose
I have been married for 9 years to my wonderful husband and we have 6 beautiful children. I love spending time with my family and enjoy the moments we share together. I also enjoy singing with my friends.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a convert to the church. I joined the church when I was 19. My mum had invited the missionaries to give her discussions. I had no interest at all of joining and my friends and I even ridiculed my mum for having these 'strange' guys come over. One night I decided to give the missionaries a chance to teach me. I had a discussion with them and had so many questions that they were teaching me for hours. By the time they left I KNEW that this was the missing link I had been looking for in my life. I prayed about the Book of Mormon and about Joseph Smith and felt the spirit testify to me that He was a prophet of God and that the Book of Mormon was the true word of God. I was baptized 2 weeks later and have never looked back. I met my husband after I had been a member for 6 months. We dated and were married in the NZ Temple one year after my baptism.
How can your talents and gifts bless others?
I used to be very shy to sing in front of people, but since being a member of the church and realizing that talents aren't just for me but for me to share with others I have been able to overcome my fears.
How I live my faith
In our ward at church I serve by looking after the sisters within our congregation. We are a sisterhood, and help one another with all things. We visit the sick and we help each other in times of need. We also help people in the community by doing meals on wheels and visiting rest homes to sing songs and share in their companionship. Being a Mormon to me, is just a part of who I am.
