Hi I'm Jeanine

In 1962, I was miraculously led to BYU where I gained a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I am a school teacher by profession, but retired to raise two adopted children. I love genealogy, family history, service, sewing, photography, home decorating, and metal detecting. I have lived mostly in the western states of Washington, California, Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho, but I do enjoy traveling and have been to most of the European countries, as well as SE Asia, Mexico, Canada, and the Holy Land.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and am appreciative of and excited to be a member of the restored gospel in these latter days. Admidst the wickedness that is enveloping our world, I find that keeping the commandments brings me happiness and peace. I don't like to think where I might be and what I might be doing, if I had not received the ordinances available to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is my rudder, my guide, and my focus.

How I live my faith

I have served in 69 callings or responsibilities while an active member of the LDS Church. My favorite callings were those as a Stake Missionary to the Cambodian people and as a Church Service Missionary in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. I have also served in the San Diego Temple for 7 years. These callings have given me talents I didn't know I had and have given me experience in working with people, and in developing a strong testimony. I have also compiled and written three family history books, as I feel it is important to preserve records of our ancestors and complete temple work for them.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I like to think of keeping the commandments as bringing your life in harmony with correct and true principles. By doing this, you will always gain a testimony of these principles. Faith without works is dead, or in other words you must apply or live these correct principles on a daily basis, thereby keeping your testimony strong. Show more Show less
