Hi I'm Jamee.

I grew up in a single parent family. I served a full-time mission to Australia. I was married at 32. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the church. I was raised by a single mother for 10 years, visiting my father when possible. I was single for a long time by LDS standards, and at 32 recently married in the Boise LDS temple. It was a goal of mine to be married for eternity in that holy house and am so happy I stayed faithful. It is never easy to be patient and wait on the Lord's timing but I absolutely know that when we hold out faithful that we are blessed, whether in this life or the next. I sing, play guitar, write songs, work out, run, bake, snowboard and go to the movies as often as possible. I enjoy any outdoor activities. I love this earth and what Heavenly Father has put here for us to enjoy! I am an optimistic person and enjoy helping other see the happiness and opportunities that this life brings. With a positive outlook come opportunities to grow and improve.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon not only because of being born into the gospel, but because it's what brings me the most happiness. In my teenage years I tried a different path and realized that it did not bring the happiness I had known when living the gospel to it's fullness. I am Mormon because it's true, simple and pure. And while living it I know that I am becoming the daughter Heavenly Father already knows that I am.  

How I live my faith

I do my best to pray and read scriptures daily with my new husband. I enjoy being different and helping women to better understand their roles in the church. I accept any opportunity to serve in the church that I am given and enjoy the callings I have had. Temple attendance is something important to me as well and I try to go as often as possible. I also speak about how women are honored in the church by keeping a blog at www.anldsgirlwithavoice.blogspot.com and believe it is important to be actively engaged in sharing the gospel online.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

In Malachi, it reads "bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse that there may be meat in mine house...and prove me therewith if I will not open up the windows of Heaven, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." Tithing is an eternal principle, given in ancient times. Heavenly Father has given me everything! And for that I give back. Tithing goes toward building new churches and temples and also toward anything the church may need such as teaching materials and Books of Mormon.    Show more Show less
