Hi I'm Jill

I grew up in Wyoming. I'm a wife, a mother, a high school teacher, a culinary enthusiast, an athlete, a singer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a wife and a mother! I am able to stay home with my four month old little boy and try to make our house a home. I graduated three years ago with a degree in Family and Consumer Science Secondary Education and taught two years at a high school here in Utah. I have been married nearly three years to my best friend! I am almost done with my PHT (Putting Husband Through) as he is in his last semester of the Masters of Accountancy program. I love to try new recipes, make my son laugh, play sports, read for pleasure, sing, sew, spend time with friends and family, watch movies, and spend time outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I cannot imagine it any other way. The blessings that I have received from my membership in this church are too many to count. Even though I have grown up in the church, I was able to gain my own testimony of the truthfulness of this great organization and it's glorious purpose. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book, and that it has a power within it's pages. I know this because I have read it numerous times and have felt the power flowing into my life, and I have prayed to know of it's truthfulness. I have found that a sincere study of it's pages gives me more patience in my life, a greater ability to love those around me, better relationships with family members, and an increased desire to draw closer to Jesus Christ. Because this book is true, I know that Joseph Smith is a true prophet, called of God. I know that the heavens are still open and we receive modern revelation. We have a modern day prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, who leads and guides our church today.

How I live my faith

To me faith is something that defines who I am and what I choose to do every day. I am blessed every day by my decisions to pray, read my scriptures, serve others around me, and live my life in a Christ-like manner. Faith requires action; every day I strive to draw closer to the Savior through the choices I make and how I spend my time. I love a quote from Elder Richard G. Scott who serves in the leadership of our church, "We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day." I want to be a woman of strong faith and I want to become better each day. I also have the opportunity to serve as a visiting teacher, where I am blessed to watch over two of the women and their families in my ward, to make sure their temporal and spiritual needs are being met.
