Hi I'm Jacqueline

I'm from Washington. I played college basketball. I'm a software engineer. I'm a mother of three wonderful children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I love sports and the outdoors. We like to play basketball, softball, soccer, tennis, golf, volleyball, football, and many other sports. I used athletics to get a college degree and become a software engineer. We have three beautiful children. We love to go camping and hiking with our family. We enjoy playing board games. I like to read.

Why I am a Mormon

I gained my own personal testimony of The Church and the Book of Mormon when I was in high school. I knelt to pray to my Heavenly Father and asked him if Joseph Smith really was a prophet and if the Book of Mormon was true scripture. I had an overwhelming feeling of peace and a knowlege that the Gospel of Jesus Christ had been restored to the Earth through Joseph Smith. The entire Gospel of Jesus Christ just makes sense. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints contains only good, wholesome doctrine and encourages it's members to become better people and better citizens. It encourages self-reliance and personal responsibility. I love knowing that my marriage can last for eternity, not just "til death do you part." I love that I can be together with my children and my parents and siblings forever. The Church teaches the importance of families and desires for all to strengthen those relationships.

How I live my faith

I love that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints gives its members responsibilities and encourages community service. I currently help organize blood drives and other community service opportunities for our members. Recently, I have helped organize a monthly church service for residents of a local Alzheimer's facility. I am helping to organize hundreds of people in our area for our National Day of Service which includes park cleanups, yard work at a local high school, making Christmas stockings for the Forgotten Children's Fund, a food drive, and many other service projects. I try to teach my children the principles of the Gospel, especially be being an example of those principles. We love to sing the children's hymns together as a family.
