Hi I'm JoDee Newton

I'm quiet, loud, fun, serious, CRAZY, and completely unique. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 4, and have one sister and two younger brothers. I absolutely love my family!!! Somethings I love to do are singing, especially in the shower. I've been playing piano since I was 8, and love playing and seeing myself improve! I graduated high school in 2012 and plan on going to college and majoring in elementary education, which terrifies me because I don't know how to teach, but I hope I will be able to be an influence for good in the lives of children. I love having fun, and enjoy being around people, although many think I am quiet and shy. I'm crazy, and unique, and I absolutely love being me!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon, but I still chose to be a Mormon because I know this church is true. I know I wouldn't be who I am today if I didn't have the church in my life. I know this is the church I was born in but I had to question it, and the one time I questioned it, I got my answer that this was the true gospel, and I still question it sometimes, but the answer never changes. That's what I love about this gospel is the consistency.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I've been called as a missionary and am going to go to the Philippines and teach the people there the gospel. I am so excited for the opportunity to go serve in the Philippines and to meet the people but I am also terrified to leave my family for 18 months.-
