Hi I'm Jamie Jeppson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah. I am the oldest of six children. I graduated from BYU and studied abroad in Russia teaching children English. When I got married we moved to Iowa, Las Vegas and California for my husband's career in dentistry. We have three busy boys who love snakes, lizards, and any other animal that comes their way. I love to exercise and run marathons. On the weekends I like to watch my boys ski the slopes.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Mormon family. I was the oldest of 6 children, each of which went through tough trails. The miracles that they experienced in their lives strengthened my testimony as I was growing up. As I got older I had many opportunities to learn and study the gospel. The Lord has strengthened my testimony through scripture study and trials in my family's lives. I am blessed to know that the church is true. I know that Joseph Smith restored the true gospel here to the earth in this dispensation. I'm truly amazed at the love my Savior has shown me. I'm grateful that because of his love for me I am able to repent, be forgiven, and have peace and love in my life. I am grateful to know that my family is eternal and we will be together forever.

How I live my faith

My husband and boys are very involved in the Boy Scout of America program. My husband is the scout master. The scouts help the community though many service hours of weeding, building bridges, cleaning parks, planting and beautifying the community, etc. My husband also helps these scouts learn how to be good citizens and to take pride in helping others and their community.
