Hi I'm Jamie

I'm a wife and mother. I'm a foodie who loves to workout. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am married to the love of my life and mother to 4 amazing children who keep me on my toes. I grew up with all sisters so to watch my sons makes me laugh. I love music, and especially love to sing in the car. I grew up on the west(wet) side of Washington and now would never leave the sunny side.I love the great agricultural valley we live in and have a hard time passing up free fruit. When I have a bit of free time I love to read-anything from food and life blogs, children's books, historical fiction and fun novels. Finding a good deal makes me happy. I love to look for the positive in all situations. My love for food and cooking is balanced by my love for being active and exercising. I believe smiles are contagious and should be given freely. As a family we love to play together, bike, hike and camp. I also love the chaos/craziness that comes with being together with extended family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know through my own experience that following the teachings of Christ brings peace and happiness to my life. I want to be with my family forever and I know it is through Jesus Christ that this is possible. Living my beliefs gives me perspective to get through the tough times in life, and allows me to see a bigger picture and focus. I want my children to have faith in Jesus Christ and a desire to follow him as well. I know we are put in families to learn and grow and have fun together. I know the most important roles we will ever have and fulfill are those within our families.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by every day trying to teach my children and help them have a firm foundation rooted in Jesus Christ. I love to see the light in their eyes when they see how blessed we are and they understand where those blessings come from. I try to be a good example and lift up those around me. I believe great things start small. I currently am working with the teenage girls in our church. I teach lessons on Sunday and plan weekly activities to help them see their potential and what they can become. I believe challenges in life are opportunities to prove ourselves and draw closer to our Heavenly Father.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

I believe modesty and chastity are related in the way we treat our bodies. If we are modest in our dress it is because we have respect for our body and we want others to treat us with respect as well. I think the best way for parents to teach children to be modest in dress, language and behavior is by example. Modesty must be taught from an early age, it's never to early to teach your children to love and respect their bodies as the gifts from God that they are. Show more Show less
