Hi I'm Jeanne

I'm a Colorado native and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife, mother and most importantly a daughter of God. I love animals, photography, the sun, and popcorn. I relax by reading a good book. Renovating and updating my house is an ongoing project. I have the vision, my husband has the know-how. I'm a Colorado native married to a Utah transplant. My grown kids finally think I really do know something. My younger child still knows more than I do. And sleeping in on my days off is the closest thing to heaven on earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I woke up one day and wondered 'Why am I here? What is the purpose of life?" I had a great husband, healthy baby and brand new house.... and lots of diapers to change, floors to vacuum, and groceries to buy. In a nutshell, I wasn't fulfilled. My neighbor invited me to her church. I went. My other neighbor invited me to her church. I went. I attended several others over the next few years. When I walked into the doors of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints an immediate feeling of warmth entered my heart. Something I'd never felt before. Something I couldn't deny. Something I'll always remember. Shortly after, I received a very strong answer to a desperate prayer which confirmed to me there was a God and this was the path I needed to take -- being baptised into the LDS church. Since then I have received several answers to prayers, from a clear-as-day voice to a clear-as-day vision. I no longer wonder 'Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going?' My lifetime map has a definite direction to it. There will be bumps in the road, I'm sure of that, but I know I'm supposed to learn something from every trial. Let's just hope I'm a good student and only have to learn it once!

How I live my faith

The pure love I feel while serving others is something that can't be replaced by a giant paycheck or a closet full of shoes. It's an act that has a two-way result. When teaching the 6-year-olds, they get to learn about Christ in a fun, kid-friendly way, and I get to laugh at the funny things they share about their families. (Kids say the darndest things.) By making monthly visits to a few women in the ward, I am honored to be able to help when necessary, to know in advance if a difficult time is nearing them, or if tragedy has struck and immediate assistance is needed. I also know that if the situation were reversed and I am in need of anything, there is a network of people that would do the same for me. What a comfort it is to know that someone loves me enough to be ready to help at a moment's notice. My ward family is priceless. I try to set an example in my everyday life as if Jesus himself were walking next to me. I'm not perfect, but I know that when I stumble or fall, Christ will be there to help me up, IF I ASK.
