Hi I'm Jaime

I'm a mom, piano teacher, and runner. I love to make treats and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 5 and the only girl. I am a mom to three incredible kids who make me laugh on a regular basis. I find great joy and fulfillment in being a mom. It's the greatest job in the world. Music is a huge part of my life. I teach piano lessons to 33 of the most amazing people who inspire me on a daily basis. Sitting down to play the piano is the best form of therapy and seeing the impact music has on the lives of others makes my job very fulfilling. I'm becoming a runner. I never liked to run. I have several family members and friends who run and have inspired me to give it a try. I'm participating in my first half marathon soon. I've learned patience, will power, and a variety of other lessons from running and look forward to many more. I've always wanted to get my bachelors degree and I'm in the process of completing that goal. I'm a little obsessed with keeping my house clean and I love to make treats.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a long line of devoted members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I grew up hearing their stories and seeing the impact their beliefs had on their lives. My own testimony was built litttle by little. I remember reading the Book of Mormon when I was in high school and after I finished I prayed to know if it was true. I got an answer. I didn't see visions or angels but I did feel a great warmth and assurance that what I'd been believing and living was true. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. I know my Savior lives and that he knows exactly how to succor me. I feel his love. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and he was instumental in restoring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth in our day. I know that the peace and happiness I feel, even during trying times, is because of my beliefs. I want to be with my family forever and I know God has a plan that makes that possible.

How I live my faith

I play the organ during our sunday meetings. I am not an organist, I'm a pianist, but I recognize the importance of music in our worship. I get to encourage others to share their musical talents and love to see and feel the impact of that music. I have had the chance to work with the youth (12-18 year olds). I'm in awe at the time and energy they put into serving others, staying strong in environments with deteriorating values, and standing up for what they believe. Spending time working side by side with a young person is awesome. I'm able to develop friendships with others as we serve together: cleaning up parks, a home, the church, or a yard; preparing food for someone whose had a baby or is having a hard time; being a shoulder to cry on or the one crying. I'm striving daily to follow the example of the Savior in my interactions with others.
