Hi I'm Jeannine

I married a soldier. I am a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to three children, two girls and a boy. I enjoy reading. I have recently rediscovered a love of exercise and activity. I would like to learn how to sew and knit. My parents have been married for over 50 years. It is a second marriage for my father. I have 1 half brother and five other siblings. I have been married sixteen years to a wonderful man. The first thirteen years I spent as an army wife. We have lived through two wars and three deployments. Now retired, but still have great respect for our fighting men and women.

Why I am a Mormon

The simple version is that I was born into the church, and was baptized at 8 years old. I have had other moments in my life where the church wasn't my focus, but had never completely severed ties. Through periods of inactivity and reactivation I found that I dearly missed the feeling of peace that accompanies the spirit of our Heavenly Father. I know Jesus is our Savior. I know that through his sacrifice, we have the ability to be with our Heavenly Father again. I know this church is true, and that Joseph Smith restored the true gospel to the earth.

How I live my faith

I am part of the world's largest women's organization known as Relief Society. As the name indicates we are charged with the welfare both spiritual and temperal of the adult women in our ward. I am the president of our Relief Society and work closely with three other diligent women to fullfill our responsibility to the women of our ward. We are Visiting Teachers. Through this inspired program we visit each sister each month to build friendships and spiritual growth.

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is the largest women's organization in the world. It is for adult women after they turn 18. Its purpose is to build faith and personal righteousness, strengthen families, and help those in need. Show more Show less
