Hi I'm Jeannie

I am a mother of four, I serve in the U.S. Army, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a mother of four small children aging from 3 months to 5 years. I go to school part time, home school my oldest, serve in the U.S. Army Reserves, and have a serious addiction to running. I met my husband while on active duty at Fort Campbell, KY and we got married after a tour to Iraq. We both love the outdoors and everything it has to offer. I run for fun, but would someday like to be fast enough to take it to another level. I just caught the triathlon fever and don't know where it will take me, but I am thoroughly enjoying the training.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at the age of 8. I was inactive during my teenage years and early adulthood. I did not feel that I needed any sort of religion. It was not until after I had my first child and my marriage had fallen apart that I knew I could not make it in this life without meaning and spiritual guidance. I decided to fast and pray during a very dark period in my life. I asked for guidance and received the inspiration that I needed to marry my almost ex-husband in the temple. I did not understand what a temple marriage was, but knew it was the answer to saving my family. My husband was not a member of the church and I was not attending church, but through a series of divine miracles my husband joined the church and we later were married and sealed for time and all eternity in the temple, the House of the Lord. I know that Jesus Christ leads and guides this church, I know that the prophets and apostles that lead this church are called by Jesus Christ. The priesthood has been restored as well as the ancient church with all its fullness, which is the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I have 3 callings in the church. I belong to the activities committee, which help organize activities and classes that the women of the church can participate in during the week. It varies from learning how to grow a garden, learning yoga, sewing aprons, to just having visiting time with yummy treats. I am also a visiting teaching supervisor, which reports monthly what sisters were visited and what needs families have in the church. I am also a visiting teacher, which is where I go out and visit a few of the women in the church to make sure they are doing well and see if there is anything they need.
