Hi I'm Jean

I grew up in a small town in Arizona. I am the mother of 7 children and I enjoy being a homemaker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love people. Growing up in a small town has taught me to love others, no matter their nationality or culture. Raising 7 children, 1 girl and 6 boys has given me opportunities to learn much about life and living. i enjoy creating a beautiful home where my husband and children can invite their friends and feel comfortable. i enjoy nature and a beautiful sunset. i enjoy people and learning new things from those that I meet. Because i raised 6 boys, I enjoy making bread and special "comfort foods" they like. I enjoy learning better ways of taking care of my health and feeling good to do the things that I want to do. Because our 7 children are scattered over the U.S., i enjoy learning creative ways to keep our family connected.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born with a Mormon, pioneer heritage. Throughout my life, trying to live as the Savior taught has been as natural to me as drinking water. My greatest desire since I was a young girl was to grow up, marry and be a mother. Because of the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ that are taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by inspired leaders, I have been taught the beautiful ways of life and how to, with my husband, raise our children under inspired direction. My deepest desire now is that our children will continue to follow the things they have been taught, so that we as a family can return to live together with our Heavenly Father for eternity. It is my testimony that our Heavenly Father lives and desires that we return to him. I know that it is possible if we follow His teachings that are found in the scriptures.

How I live my faith

Throughout my life as an adult, I have had opportunities in all the organizations of our church. I have served many years in the youth organizations, trying to help young people understand important principles and standards to prepare them for their future work as adults and parents. i have served in women's organizations to help and teach my fellow sisters to follow inspired leaders in being better wives, mothers and citizens. I have had opportunities to serve in different countries, in strengthening underdeveloped cultures and peoples. Even though I have a minor musical background, I have recently been called by my church leaders to be the music chairman in our ward. This calling has helped me expand my talents and given me confidence in trying to inspire people through sacred music. On Sundays I hold choir practice in our home to prepare the members of our congregation to perform in church. I also choose and arrange appropriate music for our meetings. Another opportunity for service happens each month as I visit other women in our congregation. All of these callings and opportunities have blessed my life and the life of my family and have helped make me the person that I am today. It is my desire to continue to use these experiences and opportunities to bless others throughout the rest of my life.
