Hi I'm Jaimie

I'm a military wife, I'm a mom, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sew, bake, build and restore furniture for our home in fun and creative ways, and photograph every moment possible. I love being a mother to a beautiful little 2 year old boy, it's the biggest challenge I've ever experienced and by far the most rewarding thing. My husband is a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Army and our last 3 years marriage and Active duty service has been one beautiful adventure. I've learned quite a bit over the last year of my husband's overseas deployment and we are all so excited to be reunited again.

Why I am a Mormon

For one year I have been the wife of a deployed soldier. I have closed my eyes at the end of a long day knowing that 5000 miles away, in a war zone, my husband of almost three years was beginning his day. I have read letters from my husband to our 2 year old son, sharing his testimony of this gospel and his faith in Heavenly Father's plan for us. For one year I have prayed in the car, in kitchen, in the grocery store, on my knees at the edge of our bed. I've prayed for comfort, strength, guidance, his safety, our safety, that our family would find a way to grow stronger through this difficult test. More than I've ever prayed in my life. I taught our son to pray at meal times, before bed, and when he felt sad or upset, that his little spirit might also find peace in dealing with the difficulties of having our family apart. Our prayers have been answered. This last year has been far from easy. Juggling the tasks and emotions of a deployment was more difficult than I could have ever imagined. Feeling like a single mother. Stressing about the safety of my husband. I've been challenge in almost every aspect, except the strength of my marriage. We both felt impressed that with prayer and regular personal and combined scripture study via video chat that we would find a closeness and growth that we would never have gained without this experience. I have seen the Lord's hand in my life more clearly over the last 12 months than ever in my life. I was constantly blessed with everything I needed. I found joy in a calling that intimidated me and challenged me constantly. I felt myself growing to fulfill the needs of my family, my small branch, and my own personal testimony that had spent a little to much time on auto-pilot. I'm so thankful for the faith I've gained. I feel so much joy when I try to live my life according to commandments. I love this Gospel. I feel my Savior's love for me. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I serve in our branch working with the children through age 12. I help plan activities, teach music, and share some of the wonderful teachings of the Gospel. I host a monthly recipe swap night group were women could come and share some of their favorite dishes and socialize (a fun chance to eat some delicious food and have a mommy's night off).
