Hi I'm Jolyn

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm happy to be the mother of two beautiful daughters. I love to do crafts, read, cook, bake and be with my family. My husband is not a Mormon but I love him just the same. I have high hopes that someday we'll be an eternal family. If not in this lifetime, then in the next.

Why I am a Mormon

I was actually born in the church. When I was growing up my family wasn't what I would consider very strong in the church. We didn't read scriptures together, we didn't have family home evening, we didn't do a lot of the things I would say most stalwart members of the church do. I've definitely strayed more than once from the church. One time in my life I actually decided that since I'd moved that I would no longer go to church. That I'd just fly under the radar. Well, that all changed one July 4th weekend when my daughter and I were invited to a member's house to celebrate. The members of my new ward embraced us and welcomed us and wouldn't give up on us. Since then I've been active in church and had many callings. I've struggled spiritually like anyone does but I've never doubted my Heavenly Father's love for me. I know that the scriptures are true. I know that by just doing the basics, doing the best you can and being the best you can be, you'll be greatly blessed in the next life.

How I live my faith

I have a HUGE testimony of visiting teaching. It has greatly blessed my life and those around me. I LOVE having the sisters and brethren in my home at least once a month to give me a lesson and see how I'm doing. What a great way to show someone they are loved. What a great way to make sure the needs of others are being met. The women in the church are some of the most amazing and wonderful women I've ever known. They are so talented and I'm blessed enough to have them share their talents with me. I've been on the women's activity planning committee in my ward for probably over a year now and I can say that I have LOVED every second of it. So much thought and planning goes into those activities. You can really feel the love from your sisters. I was asked to teach the 5-6 year olds in my ward about two-three months ago. What a blessing. I get to teach these young spirits and in return I get taught as well.
