Hi I'm Jeanne

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First-born of 11 children to George W. Morse and Frances Elizabeth Williams. raised on farm/cattle ranch. Lived near, 3 miles from, maternal grandparents. Loved school. I had two daughters. One survives. I have two grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. I am retired educator, a graduate of California State University Sacramento [CSUS], and Oregon State University, Corvallis [OSU]. Travel is one of my passions. I have traveled to six continents in the past forty years. I hope to Visit Spain & Portugal, Sicily, and India some day. I became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints almost 15 years ago. Enjoy my callings: Ward Family History Consultant; work one day a week in the Family History Center [FHC]; spend one day a week in the Sacramento Temple, and I am the Elders' Dinner Calendar Coordinator in my Ward. I have been studying/learning Genealogy research & techniques for the past 14 years. I travel to family reunions and Genealogy conferences to increase my knowledge of this fascinating subject. Enjoy helping others to find and get to know their ancestors. I believe in eternal families and am working hard to make that a reality in our lives. See you in the Celestial Kingdom!

Why I am a Mormon

My first reason for joining the LDS church was the possibility of being with my family throughout all eternity. I wanted to be sealed to my children and their father, my parents and grandparents and live with them in the Celestial Kingdom forever. I appreciate the priesthood holders in our church, the idea of Home teachers and Visiting teachers visiting me every month to share the gospel and their experiences with me. I also, noticed the closeness of husbands and wives and the love and respect they displayed to each other. I felt closer to our Ward members and became acquainted with ALL of them. We became genuine friends. I had not had that experience in my other church. I feel accepted, respected and loved by my congregation and by my Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ..

How I live my faith

I attend the Sacrament meetings; Sunday School; and Relief Society meetings in my church ward every Sunday. One of my callings, Ward Family History Consultant, gives me the opportunity to serve others (both members and non-members) by teaching them how to research their family's history. I do this by going to their homes or taking them to the Family History Center [FHC]. The FHC has many resources (paid subscriptions to genealogical websites); Books; and computers and Microfilm readers. One of my callings is Literacy Specialist. I not only help provide tutors, I encourage and assist members, both young & old, to further their education. Help them to enroll and find the academic Major most beneficial for them. My goal is to help all young women to complete their college education. I do the same for young men. Most parents see that their sons are educated. I try to convince them that it is just as important for their daughters to complete their educations. The daughters will be their children's first teachers. I have served on the Information desk at the local Veteran's Administration Out Patient Clinic [VA OPC] in Sacramento. I believe in volunteer work! I have served with The Red Cross, the Girl Scouts, Literacy programs in the community, and the USO. My most memorable service was with the United States Marine Corps [USMC] when I was younger..the 1950s. Semper Fi!
