Hi I'm Nanci Jackson Ross

I grew up in Southern, California in an inactive family. I became active again in my college years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 36 years to a wonderful man, who together we have for beautiful married children and 8 grandchildren. I teach children with learning disabilities and love the work I do. I enjoy reading, camping, the great outdoors, traveling and spending time with my family. My family is truly the highlight of my life and I can't wait for the retirement years to be able to spend more time with them. I have always been a member of the church, but was not truly active until I went to college at Brigham Young University and met my husband. The gospel is a HUGE part of my life and do not know what my life would be without it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon and stay active as a Mormon, becasue I have a testimony of the gospel. I believe that Joseph Smith came to this earth and restored the gospel, and that Christ gave his life for us, so that we can return and live in his presence again. I believe in the plan of salvation and that we can be eternal families forever. I know that without this church, I would not have all the blessings in my life that I do. I tried it the other way several times, and it just did not work! I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I am an active member of our Mountain View ward, and love to attend church each week. Do to a lot of health issues, I have not had the opportunity to have too many callings in the church in the last few years, but I do organize the 'Empty Nesters" family home evening group and look forward to attending that each month. I love going to the temple and have enjoyed serving in the church in every organization over the last 35 years.
