Hi I'm Jacque Burton

I'm a Mormon. I am a homemaker, wife, mother,grandmother, great grandmother, sister and friend.

About Me

I grew up in a small town and was raised by a mother who was a Latter-day Saint and a Southern Baptist father. My parents brought me up with strong moral values. In order to avoid conflict in our home my sister and I could decide what church we wanted to go to. We attended primarily the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was greatly influenced by the lives of my mother and her family. They were so kind and loving with everyone and only saw the good in others. I had many questions about who am I , where did I come from, why am I here and where do we go when we die. I would ask my parents about God and what they thought our purpose was on the earth and our relationship to God.

Why I am a Mormon

As a child I felt the power of the Holy Ghost in my life on many occasions. I was taught to pray from my youth and I had had many of my prayers answered. When I was married my grandmother subscribed to the Relief Society Magazine for me and I loved reading it. I prayed to have a knowledge of the truthfulness of the gospel having confidence that my prayer would be answered and it was. Because of that simple prayer I was blessed with a witness that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints held all the keys of Heavenly Fathers kingdom on the earth today. Through studying the Old and New Testament and the Book of Mormon I have come to have a steadfast testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that He is our Savior and our Redeemer, and that His atoning sacrifice is real and that He Lives.

How I live my faith

I have always felt that the example I set speaks volumes to my children and grandchildren. I have never asked my children to do anything that I am not willing to do, such as attending church meetings, praying, reading my scriptures daily, bear my testimony, having family home evening, keeping the commandments and always being willing to serve. I love to visit teach the sisters in my home ward. I have made so many friends through the years of serving as a visiting teacher. My husband and I serve in a University Stake and I enjoy serving with the young adults in that Stake.
