Hi I'm Jamie

I love to write. I play the piano. I grew up in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying Elementary Education. I am passionate about education and about teaching. There is something incredible about watching someone's face light up when they understand something you have taught them. I served an 18-month mission in coastal Virginia and North Carolina and it was some of the best days of my life. I have played the piano for as long as I can remember and love the spirit that music can bring. I grew up in Texas and am a Southern girl at heart. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the peace and happiness the gospel brings to my life. I have great love for my Savior and I am unbelievably grateful that I have been blessed to have the fullness of His gospel in my life. I know that I am a daughter of God. I know that He loves me and that He is watching over me. I believe in the power of prayer. I know that I can talk to God at any time, in any place, and that my prayers can always be answered. I know that my family can be together forever through the blessings of the temple. These truths help me grow closer to Jesus Christ. My relationship with Christ and with my Heavenly Father bring me great happiness.

How I live my faith

To me, living with faith doesn't have to be some big thing that everyone can notice; living my faith is the small things that are part of who I am. I live my faith by spending time each day studying the scriptures and by expressing gratitude for the blessings Heavenly Father has given to me. I live my faith by attending my church meetings each Sunday and by looking for opportunities to serve other people.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Families can be together forever through the sealing ordinance performed in the temple. There is a life after death and family relationships and marriages do not end at the grave IF a family has been sealed in the temple. Show more Show less
