Hi I'm Jeanne

I was born and raised in Marietta, GA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married, and all four of our children were born in the same hospital where I was born. My favorite things to do are: listen to music, dance, and work on family history.

Why I am a Mormon

About my senior year in High School I began wondering who I was and where I was going. My parents had divorced and my mother died a few months later. I had become a huge fan of The Osmonds and wondered what they had that was so special and made them such a close family. I wanted a family like theirs. The answer, of ocurse, is their Mormon faith. My childhood friend's mother understood my desires and said she had seen a copy of The Book of Mormon at a thrift store. I didn't know what The Book of Mormon was, but I went to the thrift store to find this book. I couldn't find it and was sad. My friends mother went to the thrift store, found the Book of Mormon and gave it to me. She also took a book off her bookshelf titled, The Coming Of the Mormons. This book told the tale of Joseph Smith and the early Saints-their trials and tribulations and the trek out West to Utah. I loved this book. I still have it! My friend and her mother are not members. The Lord worked through them to help guide me in the right direction to answer my questions about who I am and where did I come from and where was I going. A different friend from High School who was a member out of nowhere invited me to come to Church with her. I was scared! I was excited! I was so happy! Soon after that the missionaries came to see me, and I ended up telling THEM what was at that time the first discussion! LOL!! They closed their discussion book and asked me if I would be baptised. I jumped up and was so excited. I'm a Mormon because I know, I mean, I KNOW this is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! My testimoney is strong!

How I live my faith

I live my faith through family history. I think It is important that we know our ancestry. I share family history with all members of my family. I enjoy participating in Sunday School discussions. I enjoy sending visiting teaching messages to other sisters. I love taking meals to our missionaries and having them in our home. I am so thankful for the Church website, www.lds.org. I have djd in my hands which makes it difficult to hold the scriptures for very long. I can look up the scriptures on line and sit back and read them without struggling.
