Hi I'm Jamie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in San Diego, California but only spent a few years there. I grew up in a small ski town in Colorado. I am the second oldest of 7 kids. I went to college at the University of Wyoming where I had the privilege of being on a full athletic scholarship to play volleyball. I majored in Physical Education teaching but currently spend my time at home with my three children. I have been married for 11 years to my wonderful husband. We currently live in Missouri where he is finishing his residency in orthopaedic surgery. In my free time I love to play volleyball, be outside, bake yummy things to eat and spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I often find myself wondering where I would be and who I would be without The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in my life. It is so much a part of what makes me the person I am. I was raised as a member of the church. I remember growing up clinging onto my parent’s testimonies and knowing at some point I would have to find out for myself if it was true. My parents taught me well but in the end it had to be me that took the steps to find out if I truly believed and had a testimony. I remember reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it and asking if the church was true. I received confirmation from the Holy Ghost that it was. I know that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. I am a Mormon because I have a testimony that it is true. I am a Mormon because it brings joy and happiness to my life.

How I live my faith

I am grateful for the gospel in my life and the opportunity to teach my children about it. I am also thankful for the opportunities I am given to continually strengthen my own testimony. The church brings us many opportunities for us to serve. I have had the opportunity to serve within the church in a lot of areas. I am currently serving as the Relief Society president in my ward. What a humbling experience it has been. It is wonderful to be able to serve the women in our ward. I always try to live my faith by setting a good example to my family and to those around me.
