Hi I'm Jill

I'm a mom of 4 and love to decorate. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 40 year old mom of 4. My oldest is in 9th grade in High School and my youngest is in 3rd grade. I work at a Florist shop here in VA. We've lived here going on 4 years now. I grew up most of my life in Utah and living in the East is a big adjustment for me, but I'm growing quite a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the Gosepel is true. Plain and simple. I feel It takes living it every day to know. I do my best to do the things I think my Savior would like me to do, and although I am far from perfect, I know that working at it each day draws me closer to Him.

How I live my faith

I work with the Young Women in our small Branch. We only have 7 girls in our group, but they are so strong and have such a strong desire to live the gospel. I teach lessons on Sunday's every three months. I help the young women prepare activities that provide service for others, have fun making things for themselves, learning gospel principles, and having fun learning about the gospel in creative ways. I also lead a very small choir for the Branch as well. This means after church is over, we meet and practice hymns or other church songs. It is challenging, since I'm not as educated in this area as I would like to be. It is a learning experience.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

I don't think it's much different than most people, although I don't drink alcohol, I don't smoke, I don't drink coffee, I don't swear....all the typical things you hear about. But more than that I try to be honest and have integrity and be trustworthy. I do my best to live a virtuous life and be an example to my children and others. I try to live my life like I think the Savior would expect me to live. I don't do certain things on Sunday. That is the day set aside for the Lord and I try to keep that in mind as I go though this day. It is not a day for me to do the every day activites or things that could be done on any other day. My family is very important to me and I take my job as a mom as the most important job i have. After all, families are forever and I want mine to be for all eternity Show more Show less
