Hi I'm Jeanine Wagner

I'm a patient redhead who loves playing soccer. I speak Spanish, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my 3rd year of college studying Exercise Science. I'm not a hardcore exerciser, but I love learning about physiology and how the body moves and works. It gives me a greater appreciation for the blessed gift of our bodies. I'm taking an 18-month break from school to invite the wonderful souls in New Mexico to come closer to their Savior Jesus Christ. I enjoy dancing like a fool and singing. Just know that if you sing a song around me, I will start to sing it too. I'm not a good singer, but I love the joy I feel when I sing and the joy I can spread through song. Some of the moments when I have felt closest to God are when I hear voices raised in praise to Him and when I can praise Him with my own voice.

Why I am a Mormon

Good question--Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because I prayed and asked God if it was true, and I received my answer. Simple as that. Although I was raised in the Church, I had to find out for myself if I believed what I had been taught my whole life. I studied and practiced what I learned, and I came to know it was true. Then, a tragedy occurred in my family--my 25-year-old sister was killed in a car accident. I was broken. It was a very dark time in my life, and I really had to choose if I believed that I could see my sister again and that God was merciful and loving. I never spent more time on my knees pleading for some glimmer of hope, and then it came through Jesus Christ. He is central to everything. Because of Him, we can have hope, and because of Him, families can be together forever. I am so grateful to be a member of His true Church. You can find out too! Just pray and ask Him, and I promise that you will find peace and joy in any trial that you may be going through right now. Why not do it? What do you have to lose?

How I live my faith

Right now, I am a missionary of the Lord Jesus Christ! Everyday I have the blessed opportunity to share my testimony of Him and how His love has blessed me in my life. At first, it was really nerve-racking to open my mouth and share these precious experiences with others. Well, if I am to be honest, it still is a little nerve-racking, but as I understand that I have this gift of knowledge that will change someone else's life, it becomes a lot easier. And, guess what, as I have relied on the Spirit of Lord to guide me, I have been able to help others feel the joy that comes through Jesus Christ. All of our burdens can be made light if we come unto Him and partake of His precious Gospel. "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
