Hi I'm Jody

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 26 years old and have been married for a couple years. I have a degree in Elementary Education and work part-time at an elementary school. Spending time with my family is very important to me. I also love to read, sew, and find new recipes to cook.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was 8 years old and grew up in the church. I always thought it was a good thing, but didn't realize how important it was to me until I moved away from home. Attending church, praying and reading the scriptures brought peace and direction to my life so I chose to keep doing those things by myself. I learned for myself that God loves me and that he sent His son Jesus Christ here to this earth to die for me. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God to restore the Church of Jesus Christ and to teach us what we need to know so that we can return to live with Him again. I know that God answers our prayers and wants us to be happy and I know that it is through Christ that we can have happiness now and forever.

How I live my faith

I teach a class to the woman at church. It gives me a chance to study throughout the week and also to get to know the other women I'm working with. I prepare my lessons with them in mind but end up learning so much more than I know I can teach. I really try to always apply what I learn at church or from the scriptures to my life. I'm not perfect but I try to do a little better each day to live how Jesus Christ would.
