Hi I'm Jodi

I'm a stay at home mom with 3 sweet children (technically 4 children, if you include my husband). I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a busy mother of three young children.  I enjoy watching the awe and fasination of the world from their eyes. My favortie part of motherhood is being loved so unconditionally. It is a gift and honor to be loved by a child, there is no other feeling like it in the world. Here and there, I enjoy a playful game of tennis with my husband, but I lOVE it if I win. I also love singing, nutrition, books, and trying new recipes.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a mormon. As I grew I made my own decisions about mormon teachings. I came to know and still find confirmation that it was Christ's teachings and church. I read the Book of Mormon and put it to the test. I tried praying and looking for miracles and evidence of God in my life. I found and still do find, that he answers me and I see him in the details of my life. In very small, but amazing ways, I have learned that he loves and cares about me. Ways that we miss if we're not looking for them. Just because I was raised mormon it doesn't mean its the lifestyle I am bound to. I CHOOSE to be a mormon. Its what I believe, not what some one told me I had to accept. Just as any person makes their own choices in life about careers, marriage, and school, this is what I chose as a religion and lifestyle. The teachings of this church, which is the teachings of Christ, has brought me great joy and peace from knowing the pupose of life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in my local church building. I work with the 12-18 year old girls. We have fun activities together where we learn about important qualities to develope such as faith in Jesus christ, divine nature, individual worth, knowledge, choice and accountability, helping others, and virtuous living. I also read the Bible and Book of Mormon daily and say my prayers. I live my faith mostly in my family day to day life, like trying to be patient with my children, teaching them to be kind, to help and care for eachother and spending quality time together talking, working and playing. I try to think of others needs, like friends, neighbors and family and how I can help them. Most the time it is very small ways, like bringing a can of soup to one of my sweet church girls who is sick or making my husbands favorite meal, though small it makes me happy.
