Hi I'm Jackie

I grew up and live in Upstate New York. I love to do needlework, read and love my cat A.C.and I am Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Auburn, NY . I am one of six brothers and sisters. I have four children and six grandchildren. I graduated from TC3 in 1993 with a degree in Office Technology. I like to do needlework, and my passion is cross-stich, although I do many forms of needlework. I love reading mysteries. Koontz, Kellerman, Dickens. I love my Angel Cat (A.C.). I was diagnosed with emphysema and I am on oxygen 24/7. But that doesn't stop me from doing what I want to do. I'm a vietnam era Army veteran with PTSD. I'm stubborn, and I'm a survivor.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I believe it. I believe God is watching over me and over all of us. He has answered my prayers. And for now, my granddaughter lives with Him. She is my angel. I don't know when you ever get over that pain of losing, but this church has helped me. The people have been there for me when I needed help. "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me." (Psalm 23) The book of mormon prophet Alma is my example of strength. He is strong and true. A man having "power and authority from God." (Alma 5:3)

How I live my faith

I volunteer at my local congregation and I coordinate home visits, so that everybody is "nourished by the good word of God." (Moroni 6:4) I don't smoke or drink. I keep myself pure. I faithfully read my scriptures and pray. I love my family so much, even though their not perfect either.

What do Mormons believe about "eternal life?"
