Hi I'm Jynene

I am a Mother of six, a former professional dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My six children are now adults and I have 9 beautiful grandchildren and hoping for more! My husband and i take tour groups to Israel. I love to teach dance and choreograph. Sewing is my favorite hobby and i wish I had more time to do it. When I go to see musical theater, I feel enriched for days. My family teases me that I am a "planner". I need to organize my time and calendar everyday.

Why I am a Mormon

I decided to join the church in high school after many years of wondering if there was a God. I had questions like, "Where did we come from? and "Why are we here?" and "Where are we going?" After study and prayer, the answers I was given made sense and a feeling of peace gave me comfort and courage to face life's challenges. As I recognized that I did have a Father that was in heaven, a Father of my spirit, and I could live with Him again, I desired that more than anything else. Then when I learned more about my Savior, Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for me to live eternally, I was committed to keep his commandments the best I could. I am constantly amazed by His love and guidance in my life. The wonderful things I have learned give my life meaning, purpose and direction.

How I live my faith

Serving in the community has been a career with no pay check! I enjoy visiting my elderly neighbors and friends. I have been asked to organize events for my church and felt pleased to be of service. Teaching the youth and adults how to serve is very rewarding. As I have worked in many civic and church organizations, the greatest part is meeting wonderful people and making friends in all walks of life. I am more impressed everyday by the great people I associate with.
