Hi I'm Jill

I'm the wife of a firefighter. I'm a homeschooling, boy and girl scouting, Civil Air Patrol-ing mom to 5 and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the wife of a firefighter. I'm a homeschooling, boy and girl scouting, Civil Air Patrol-ing mom to 5, the wife of a firefighter, and a daughter of our Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I can't imagine life any other way. Really and truly, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its teachings shape my life in every way. I love having an eternal family. I love knowing that my children can be mine forever. I love knowing that my husband is mine and that I am his forever. I love forever families.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon shapes everything I do. Because of my faith I am willing to give of my time. I work with the women in our congregation and love it! I consider them my sisters and love having such a large "church family." I love planning events just for the women and look forward to a "time-out" with them. Because of my faith, I am aware of what I eat, drink and how I take care of my body. I look for healthy foods for myself and my family. I also know that food is a blessing and is meant to be enjoyed, and I am most grateful for cake! Because of my faith, I pay attention to my clothing and how I present myself to others. Because of my faith, I try to limit my activities to those that are of most worth. As a homeschooling mom I try to help my children see the benefit of wholesome recreational activities. Because of my faith, I look for ways to create. Even though I do not consider myself creative (at all), I try to find ideas that fit my family. I am a good copy cat, but enjoy the rare thrill of coming up with an original idea. Because of my faith, I chose to marry a man who would help me become who my Heavenly Father wants me to become. He is an amazing man. Because of my faith, we have welcomed 4 beautiful children into our home and are grateful for the opportunity to be parents. Because of my faith, I read my scriptures, and I pray. I do love to read the scripture stories. I love to make them come to life for my children and I love to make them come to life for me. We have taught our children how to pray and I love to hear what they have in their hearts. I love knowing that they know that our Heavenly Father hears them. Because of my faith, I try to find ways to learn of the Savior and to know Him better. I hope that when I see Him again, I will know Him as my friend. Because of my faith I know God lives. I try to recognize His tender mercies in my life and strive to thank Him daily for all that I see.

What is the Relief Society?

Jill
What a great question! I work directly with the women in our congregation and just love it. In Relief Society we learn together on Sundays, and we get together during the week to "play". :) For our congregation, we plan activities for our women almost every month. Some months we have mini classes on a variety of topics such as gardening, crafts, or cake decorating. Other months we simply have a casual activity where we just chat...and eat. We always have food! Being a member of Relief Society also allows us to find opportunities to help others. We often arrange for "formal help" such as family meals during an emergency. Show more Show less
