Hi I'm Jackie

I'm a marketer. I'm a Cincinnati Reds fanatic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Texas, New Jersey, and Kentucky before making the trek out west for school at BYU-Idaho. I graduated from there with a Bachelor's Degree in Business, with an emphasis in Marketing. After graduating college, I went on a mission to Florida and spent 18 months sharing the message of the gospel with the amazing people there. I currently live and work in Cincinnati doing marketing and advertising, and I love it! My hobbies include soccer, Cincinnati Reds baseball, and hanging out with friends and family! My family and the truths of the gospel are what keep me grounded and bring me the most happiness!

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the church my whole life, but I've seen the blessings that come from living the gospel and the unity it brings to my family. It gives me hope and direction in a difficult world and has given me a place to turn when it seems like there's nothing else. I know that God is aware of me and has a plan for me, and I've felt his presence many times in my life. This gospel has made me happier than anything else possibly could!

How I live my faith

Mostly by example. Most of my friends and family are members of the church, but I do get the opportunity to share my beliefs and my testimony with my coworkers regularly. I also just try to live my life in the way the Savior did and in the ways I've been counseled by leaders. That's not to say I'm perfect, but I try to be obedient to the commandments and to look for opportunities to share the happiness of the gospel with those around me.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

No we don't. We love and revere him, and are eternally grateful for his devotion and sacrifice to bringing forth this gospel so that we have it today, but all of our praise and worship go to God our Father and to his Beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
