Hi I'm Jema

I'm a Mormon. I live in Anacortes, Washington. I have 5 wonderful children.

About Me

I am adopted. I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and was raised by loving parents. I attended BYU and graduated with a degree in Family Sciences. I served a mission in Fortaleza, Brazil where I learned to speak portuguese. I married my husband we we now have 5 children. We moved to the Northwest where I love the long summer days, but I miss hot weather.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have a testimony that there is a living prophet that can help guide us. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and is a second testament and witness of Jesus Christ. I know that without the help and atonement of Jesus Christ I could not return to live with my Heavenly Father. I am a mormon because it feels right and I am a better person by following churches teachings. I want others to be able to know why we are here on earth and that there is a point and a plan for our existence.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by helping others. Most importantly I try to teach my children what they need to do to be good citizens and followers of Christ. I like volunteering in the schools, especially the elementary, where I can see the difference one person can make in the life of a child.
