Hi I'm Jill

I love sour candy, swimming pools, the color yellow, and I love being a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay at home mom and I'm happy. I love being with family and friends. We are happiest when our home is full of people! I'm not a great cook, but I've found a few things that anyone will eat. We figure the best way to make friends and keep family coming over is to feed them!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe the teachings of Jesus Christ bring true happiness and purpose to my life. In a constantly changing world, I can look to these teachings which remain constant and true. I understand who I am (a child of God), why I am here on earth, and where we are going after this life. The church provides the big picture, while helping us enjoy the journey of life! I love being part of a church family where there are many opportunities to serve, and therefore, find joy.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the Church is not just a "go to church on Sunday" thing. I think this is where the happiness comes in. As a family, we start and end the day with family prayer, and we read together from the Book of Mormon each night before we go to bed. I want my children to understand that our Heavenly Father hears our prayers, watches over us, and will help us. I want them to know that the scriptures teach us how to be happy as we read the things that Jesus taught, and then try to follow them. I know that Jesus Christ taught us to care for the one--he knows and loves us individually and we have the same obligation to those around us. We try to be aware of those who need extra help, whether it is a meal, childcare, a visit, a ride, or just a note. We need to reach out to the weary and down-trodden (and haven't we all been there?!), one by one, and make their burden a bit lighter. It is a way that I can feel the Savior's love, as well as help someone else feel that same love.
