Hi I'm Bobbi Jane

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I shelve books in my kid's school library. I was Miss Hannigan with all my kids in "Annie". I love being with my kids and watching them learn, grow and become amazing people! I have a hard time talking about myself because I am much more comfortable talking about them. My best times are spent with my family, on beaches in Maine, cabins in Canada, or playing soccer on a field as the sun sets. They mean everything to me! The gospel of Jesus Christ has been a constant reminder to keep them a priority in my life. I have been taught and fully believe that no success will compensate for my failure to be a mother to my children.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born into the church may seem like you have no choice in what religion you belong to. Initially, this is true. However, as you grow older in the church, you must find out for yourself if all you have learned is true. This is not a manifestation of great proportion, but a trickle of knowledge and confirmation by the Holy Spirit as you learn and find truth. I served a mission to South Africa when I was 23. This was a great time of learning for me. I am much older and have still found knowledge to manifest itself to me bit by bit as I strive to become like the Savior. The personal testimony I have gained of truth is why I'm a Mormon, not just because I was born into it.

How I live my faith

I love to teach! I didn't always feel comfortable doing this. I have been given opportunities to teach adults, youth and the young kids. I have also organized activities for our congregation and children. It's always rewarding to teach a gospel principle and see it change lives! The most challenging assignment was an early morning class (6am) for the high school kids, 4 days a week. Even though my husband and I rotated weeks, it was tough! It was sensational how much I learned. Every opportunity to serve is an opportunity to grow personally. I have taken my teaching skills to become an elementary substitute teacher. When I'm not doing this, I'm usually at the schools with the PTA. As a family, we try to help out in any way we can in the community. Salvation Army baskets, hauling wood for a widow, clean-ups, anything!
