Hi I'm Jeanette
I love learning. I'm a Mormon.
As a young child I lived in a home full of learning experiences. As an older child I began studying the violin, and ballet. I loved the personal expression and friendships that those lessons brought. In college I studied another language and another culture while abroad. I also studied human development and family relations, improving in my role as a member of a family, and preparing for my future as a wife and mother. Since college my husband and I have started our own family, which now includes three young boys. I've spent time learning homemaking skills. My husband and I love cooking and enjoying food together. Our learning adventures in self-reliance include keeping chickens and a beehive in our small-city backyard. We've also learned to produce some of our own food and home goods. It's not all "practical" learning as I've enjoyed participating in classes on cake decorating and stained glass as well. I enjoy reading with my children, and for myself, including fiction and non-fiction. And love quality film as well--in all things recognizing that truth, and knowledge, and beauty are all gifts from our Heavenly Father. I work to study my scriptures ever more diligently and have taken opportunities to enjoy Institute classes past graduation. I love the promise from our Heavenly Father that the intelligence we gain in this life will rise with us in the next, and enjoy the feelings of personal expansion that come with learning something new.
From a young age I gained a strong testimony that God knew me and cared about me. As I have grown and my relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have deepened and expanded. I am able to feel it very specifically when my life is out of alignment with what the Lord would have it be. My life feels the most right as I work to improve myself, draw near unto God and His Son, follow the council of church leaders and inspiration, and become "an example of the believers."
I work daily to fulfill the covenants I have made with the Lord concerning my relationship with my husband, and the raising of the children I have been blessed with. I look for opportunities for learning and personal growth through the responsibilities I am asked to take on in our local congregation. I share my feelings--which include my testimony and principles of doctrine--honestly in conversations with people I meet and online.
