Hi I'm Jo

I am a wife to Michael, a mother to five children. Three boys and two girls. My family is so important to me. I am a mormon.

About Me

My name is Jo. I am a wife and a mother to five children - three boys and two girls. My family is a very important part of my life. I enjoy running and have participated in two races for charity. I love art in many ways, appreciating good art and getting my hands dirty by being creative myself and also helping the children in my area with art in school. I enjoy music from many genres and love to sing in my church choir.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life but really made the choice at the age of nineteen to fully embrace the gospel in my life. I have always felt the love of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I love the Saviour Jesus Christ and this is His true church here on the earth. I know that Jesus lived and died for me and that God will help and strengthen me in every way when I turn to Him in prayer. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that it is true. The scriptures help, direct and inspire me in my life. I know that there is a living prophet on the earth today, who leads and guides us. He recieves revelation from God and is His mouthpiece on the earth. I love this gospel of Jesus Christ and I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I am involved with my children's schools through working on the parent teacher association and as a school governor. This helps me with getting to know those in my local community. I have been actively involved in the church in many different ways from teaching nursery age children, to teaching the 8 to 11 year olds and planning activities for them. I have also worked with the girls aged 12 to 18 years old doing activities for them and teaching them. I have especially enjoyed going on girls camp with them, it was great fun! I have been a leader for the adult women and loved building friendships with women of different ages and backgrounds. As I have served in the church I have grown closer to Jesus Christ and to those around me.
