Hi I'm Jami

I'm a daughter, wife, mother, sister and friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I lost myself in motherhood and have recently begun to rediscover who I am besides "mother." I have reclaimed the joy found in music through piano, organ, guitar, and voice. I have put aside fear and insecurity to try out new crafts and hobbies to see if I really enjoy them or not. Reading has always been a passion of mine, but I seem to be caught up in music (as of late) so that I do not get to read enough. Thankfully, I find time every day to read the words of the prophets. Lastly, I enjoy the occasions of time I get to spend with my friends--especially my husband!

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a strong family heritage of believers. As such, I came to cherish Christ's gospel at a young age. As time has passed, I have learned that true joy comes in living a Christ-centered life.

How I live my faith

I enjoy studying the words of Prophets--both old and new. I cherish being a wife and mother and the time I am privileged to spend in the home. I am blessed with opportunities to help others learn how to make music. I safeguard the moments of joy and seek to look for the good in the hard times. Above all, I am grateful for the everyday blessing of family, home, nourishment, protection, freedom, & love.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Jami
Modesty is not only how we act or how we dress, it is a part of who we are. Likewise, being Chaste is a part of who we are. We either choose to be modest and chaste, or we do not. Children learn far before they can talk. If we teach children that their body is a special gift from a loving Heavenly Father and that how we act, talk, and dress is a direct link to how we feel about Him, children can learn to be modest in their actions, in their behavior, in their thoughts, and in their dress. When they learn that covering their body shows their love and respect for God, they teach those around them that their body is sacred. Knowing your body is sacred is imperative in knowing what is appropriate and what is not in regards to behaviors and activities with your body. If I teach my child at age three to wear clothing that "shows off" her body, I am not teaching her behavior that will lead to understanding modesty and chastity. Being modest and chaste means respecting our body, not showing it off for others to see. The world wants us to be loud, worship those with "beautiful" bodies, and make a name by "standing out." I know that being modest and chaste will bring peace and joy into our lives and the lives of our children. They can be happy with who they are, not what they are not. They can be at peace with themselves, not loud so others will notice them. They can be happy with their choices, not worshiping what the world does. Show more Show less
