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.
