Hi I'm Jamie

I'm a wife, a mother and a nursing student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young wife and have the most amazing toddler. Being a mother has been the most rewarding experience and I enjoy teaching and nurturing her as she grows and develops. I am also a college graduate with a B.S. in Biology, and I am currently earning my second bachelor's degree in Nursing.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to Church with my grandmother and siblings. My testimony came slowly as I went to church and read the scriptures with my grandmother. I was baptized at the age of eight and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I can still remember that peaceful feeling when I came out of the water and also when I received the gift of the Holy Ghost. There was a period of time when I was told that I could not keep going to church with my grandmother. During this time I still knew that the church was true, but I waited until the day would come that I could return to the church meetings again. This chance came one Thanksgiving after my parents separated. My grandmother invited me to come back to church with her the following Sunday. I have been active in this gospel ever since. I love the sweet peace that it brings to my life and the blessings that I have received by following and keeping the ordinances of the gospel. This is why I am a Mormon. The members of this church are not perfect, but we are striving to be so. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church upon the earth in these latter days. The gospel is perfect and everlasting. I am grateful to be a Mormon and to have the faith and the growing testimony that I have.

How I live my faith

Day to day I try to learn new things about the gospel through scripture study and prayer. In my ward, I have been called to be a visiting teacher. I go visit four other women in our ward and help to meet any needs they might have. I also have a calling to teach the women in my ward on the third Sunday of every month.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

As with anything you seek counsel about, you can pray to our Heavenly Father to help you recognize the truthfulness of the gospel. God is our source of truth. As you sincerely pray to Him for guidance, He will help you to know that it is true. The answer can come in the form of feelings of peace and comfort through the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes, as far as it is translated correctly. We believe that the Bible is an important, holy record that serves as a witness that Jesus Christ is the Son of our Heavenly Father. We also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God and another witness of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
