Hi I'm Jeanette

I enjoy reading, writing, learning, music, and creating beautiful things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have four children, all boys. My husband and I live in the small town where he grew up. My interests are varied, and I think I have probably been interested in every hobby at one time or another. Throughout my life, I have had an enthusiasm for reading and learning. I taught my older three sons to read when they were three years old, and I plan to teach my youngest to read when he gets old enough. There is a large age gap between my second and third sons, so my older boys were both in school before I had my last two sons. This gave me the opporunity to volunteer as a music teacher at a school one year. I spent about 12 hours a week teaching music, and it was a fun experience that I am so glad I got to have. Another hobby I have always had is participating in sports and exercise. I like to run and walk with my kids. I like to draw, sew, and create beautiful things. Recently, I have started learning to garden.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Latter-day Saint family, but I have also become converted to the gospel through experiences, through prayer, and through the Spirit. Time and time again, I have seen the wisdom and inspiration in the words of the prophets and scriptures. I have discovered for myself that the Gospel is the way to live a life at peace with my actions and my inner sense of what is right and good.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best at all the things I do. I try to implement Christ's teachings and example in my efforts to be a good wife and mother. I have volunteered many hours in school and community organizations to help share my blessings with others. I try to be a positive memory to each person I have contact with, whether it is being a good friend or just taking the time to smile and be friendly and polite to people in stores and business where I go. I also attend my meetings and serve in the Church. I am trying to remember and follow Jesus Christ. I am trying to be better, day by day and year by year.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Jeanette
The family is central to our Heavenly Father's plan for the happiness of His children. In families, we learn important things that will help us become the type of people we should be. Through families we learn the principles and attributes that enable us to become people who live in a way that brings happiness. In the restored gospel, we learn that family relationships can last even after we die. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Jeanette
Mormons absolutely believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is our Savior because he saved us from sin and death. Because he suffered for our sins, we can be free from them. Because he died and was resurrected, we can be free from death. We can live again. For this reason, and because of his perfectness and power, we worship Christ as we worship our Heavenly Father. We are Christians. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Jeanette
Through out the history of the world, Heavenly Father has reached out to help his children. The Bible is an account of how he helped the people in Israel a long time ago. We rejoice in each record of God's dealings with his people. The Bible and Book of Mormon complement and support each other as testimonies that God loves all his children wherever and whenever they have lived. Show more Show less
