Hi I'm Jo Ellen Westergren Ziegler

I am a wife and mother of 4. I live in the town where the Prophet Joseph Smith was killed. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am the youngest of 6 children both of my parents were converts to the church. So I grew up in the church but I had to find out for myself if the gospel was true. I met my husband when I was 15 and we got married 3 year later. We had our first child 10 months later. We have lived in many ares over our 28 years of marriage and finally settled down.  

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon Because I have found out for myself that this Church is true. how you may ask... My parents were both converts to the church before I was born. I was raised in the church but about the age of 13 I quit going to church for about 2 years. I had to find out for myself it the church was true or not. I searched some other religions. I even tried no religion at all. As I prayed and read the scriptures the Bible and the Book of Mormon and as I studied and prayed I came to Know that the teachings that are in this church are true. They are the teachings of Jesus Christ. I came to know for myself that the Book of Mormon is true . I know this for I have read it and prayed about it and the Holy Spirit bore witness to me of the truthfulness of it. Every time I read it the spirit confirms it again and again. I Love My Savior Jesus Christ, I Love My Heavenly Father, And I am Grateful for the Holy Ghost in my life to guide me along life's path. I am grateful for A Prophet of God that lives upon the earth Today. Who continues to guide up. I am grateful to be able to serve my neighbor. I am grateful for Family and that Heavenly Father had such a great plan so we can be together as a family for all eternity. I Know this church is true I bear testimony to this.

How I live my faith

 Every day I strive to live the Commandments of God to the best of my ability. I try to serve others and find much joy in doing so. Life, I know is not always easy But without my faith in Jesus Christ and the knowledge of his gospel I would not be able to make it. It brings me great Joy and peace. The Scriptures, as I read them each day help me through life's path and give me answers to questions that I have. The whisperings of the Holy spirit guide me and life my spirit even higher. I love being a ward Missionary and helping the full time missionaries teach the gospel to those who are searching for the truth the gospel can give them.
