Hi I'm Joanne

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm a mother of 6 children, ages 24-13. My husband is a busy physician and Bishop. I'm busy keeping things running smoothly at home. I enjoy quilting (especially with friends), knitting, crocheting, embroidery, furniture refinishing, hiking, camping, gardening, hanging out with my family. Our oldest son just got married and we are super excited about this whole new stage in our lives. My favorite place to be on Sundays is in Primary!! I have the best calling in the world, I'm the singing lady. I love the spirit I feel each Sunday as I lead those little children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and have a great pioneer heritage. I know that this is a true blessing and I'm so grateful to all my faithful ancestors. But I did have to gain my own testimony, and it's strengthened all the time. Especially when I hear Primary children singing!!

How I live my faith

We live in a community that has lots of members of the church, but the church is not predominate. I associate with lots of great people who are not members of our church. I try and let them know what our beliefs and standards are. I try not to avoid topics that would lead to discussions that relate to the gospel. I hope that through my example my friends not of our faith will know that I have a great love for my Saviour Jesus Christ.

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

Joanne
I have been asked if Mormon's are Christians. Do we believe in Jesus Christ? I'm always taken back a bit, because that is the foundation of our religion. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and all that He did for me. The sacrifice He made in the Garden of Gethsemane, so that I could have eternal life. I know that He is my elder brother, that I knew Him before I came to earth. I know that He knows me now. This knowledge gives me great comfort! Am I a Christian, absolutely!! Show more Show less
