Hi I'm Jamie

I am a daughter of God. I am a wife and a mother of six. I'm blessed to be a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a large family in a rural farming town in Ohio. When I was a child both of my parents were teachers. So I went from babysitter to babysitter. In middle school I became a latch key kid. One day my youngest brother started calling the babysitter Mommy. My mom was devastated she quit her teaching career and became a stay at home mom. I am thankful for my mother's example and sacrifice to stay home with us. Currently I am living in West Virginia. I have been married for 14 years to my eternal companion. We have six wonderful children (4 boys and 2 girls). I am blessed to be a stay at home mom. Being a mother has brought so much happiness in my life. When I have time to be “Jamie”, I enjoy photography, being creative in all sorts of mediums, reading a good book, doing service, being with my fun crazy family, and working hard.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because two missionaries knocked on my parent’s door in the early 1970s. Because of my dad’s up brings, he decided to not have any children in fear of being a bad father like his own. It was only after the missionaries taught my mother and father the Gospel, that my father learned that he could use Heavenly Fathers love as the example of how to be a good loving father. And that is why I am here today. I am thankful to have been raised in the Lord’s church. I feel thankful for the knowledge I have that me Savior has provided a way for me to return to my Heavenly Father, if I do my part. I feel my Heavenly Father’s love all around me, in all my life.

How I live my faith

Living my faith to me is living each and everyday trying to be more like Jesus. When I am faced with a choice I have to make I say “What would Jesus want me to do?” I know that I can show Heavenly Father I love him by serving others and by always looking for those opportunities. I want everyone to hear the message of Jesus Christ’s Gospel. I look for opportunities to have the faithful missionaries share this message.
