Hi I'm Holly Jean

I am a business owner, an artist, and a mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother. I love seeing my children grow and sharing the beauty of this world with them. I am a business owner. My husband and I have owned five successful businesses. Our relationship and love have grown as we have worked side by side to provide for our family. I am a harpist. I find relief from the hectic schedule of our lives as I play the harp and share music with my family and friends. I am a college student studying psychology. I am fascinated by how our minds process information and make connections.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church by loving parents. Through their upbringing, I was taught many gospel truths including the truth that through prayer we may receive answers from our Heavenly Father. Through prayer, I have felt the Spirit of God confirm to my soul that Jesus is the Christ, that He paid for my sins so that I may be forgiven and refined to become a better person. I also know that He paid for others sins and shortcomings and that through His atonement I can be healed from the injuries which others choices have inflicted upon me. I have also received a witness that His gospel is taught in the Bible and the Book of Mormon and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His church. I want to be a part of His work and I seek to serve my Savior by serving my fellow man. I am so very grateful for the knowledge that God lives, that He knows me and loves me. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach my children that through Christ we can be made whole and live together forever as a family.

How I live my faith

In the church, I teach Sunday School to teenagers. We discuss the scriptures and how they apply to their lives. I also organize service from and to the women in our congregation. Sometimes that means taking meals into a new mother, organizing volunteers to visit an Alzheimer patient, or facilitating home visits for a woman recovering from major surgery . This year the women in our congregation participated in a large service project which I organized. We hand crafted over 250 greeting cards which we then mailed to a regional cancer center to be used by the center's patients. I also volunteer at our local school helping children acquire and reinforce reading and math skills. I love the look in a child's eyes as he or she realizes that they can master the problem in front of them.
