Hi I'm Jamie

I am a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, and a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom to two handsome boys, a beautiful daughter, and I am pregnant with our fourth. I grew up in the church. Around 16 I started making some pretty bad choices. I began to fall away from the church. By the time I was 18 I was pregnant and getting married. It was a bad marriage. I finally left when I was 20, with two little boys and a full time job. It was very scary. I think Heavenly father knew how much I was struggling because soon after I "re-met" my husband. We grew up together, going to the same ward in our church, even the same seminary class. We ended up getting married. Even after we were married we struggled with staying active in the church. We went through 3 deployments and 6 months of him in Italy. After about 3 1/2 years we were finally sealed in the temple. We still have our ups and downs, as all marriages do, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I have a few hobbies, which are, anything crafty or artsy. I love photography, both taking the pictures and looking at others masterpieces. I love baking. I love learning new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my family. I have learned ways to to strengthen my family and my marriage with my husband. After a lot of trials and a lot of wrong choices I have learned that we can be forgiven. Someone once told me "... if He can forgive you, why shouldn't you?" and that has stuck with me. Even though I have been a member all of my life, I still have a lot to learn. Every time I learn something, I think to myself, how I want to become better and how I want to teach my children to become amazing people. I know that through teaching them the values and morals of the church they can be. It's not always easy but from what I've learned it is worth it in the end. I have been on both sides, living without the church, and living with it. I know with all of my heart and mind, I am right where I should be. I love my family and I want to keep them forever, and I can. I am a Mormon because it helps me want to become a better person, not only for me but for my children and my husband.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church as much as possible. I teach sweet little children between 3 & 4. I love seeing and teaching those sweet little faces each week. I also try my hardest to go to as many church activities as I can. They are always uplifting. I also visit a couple ladies once a month. I talk to them and see how things are and see how they are doing. I usually end by sharing something uplifting.
