Hi I'm Jodi

I'm a sister, a wife, a mom, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest in a family of nine girls. Sisters may argue sometimes, but family is always the most important. Now that I have a daughter of my own I hope I can teach her how important our families are. I'm a wife to an amazing husband. Let's just say I married up. :) I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in October of 2010. She was 11 weeks early and very easily could have just given up, but she proved to be a fighter and looking at her now you'd never know she has overcome such trials. She is the light of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because I know Jesus Christ lives. I know that there had to be a restoration of the priesthood authority (which is the power to act in God's name) for Christ's church to exist on this earth. I also know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ do not want us separated in our efforts to build His kingdom. I love the feelings of peace that are ever present in my life as I strive to live the gospel. I try to pattern my life after Jesus Christ's so that I can become more like Him and so that I can return to live with Him again. This religion teaches me all of these things and more. Things that enrich and bless my life. Things that I've never found anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching my daughter about Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. I go to church on Sundays to worship Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and to learn more about them and the things they want me to do. I also have a calling which I love. I serve the Young Women, who are girls ages 12-18. That means I teach them lessons on Sunday (lessons which also teach me), meet with them on Wednesday nights for fun but spiritual activities. I also get the opportunity to know them and help guide them through their teenage years which can be difficult at times. I help them grow from childhood to womanhood. I teach them how to be leaders and have confidence in themselves. I'm not their mom, but I do feel like they are my kids. They teach me, more than I teach them. I also spend one night each week along with my husband to teach each other from the scriptures and just spend time together as a family. I also visit other women from church because I love them and I love being friends with them. I try to study the scriptures and pray often. In everything I do, I try to please my Heavenly Father.
