Hi I'm Jeannine

I grew up in Southwest Florida. Now I live in Southern Oregon. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a Catholic based home. My mother being from Cuba raised her children in her heritage. I was raised with rich traditions of the Cuban culture. I was raised with a Catholic mom however went to a 1st Christian church. This is were I grew up in the gospel. I was very successful in my school and sports. I went to a Christian college in upper north east Tennessee. Within the first year of my college career I married my husband (who I meant through a friend). I was married for 11 years, had two wonderful children. In my 10th year of marriage I found my marriage was being distorted by my unfaithful husband with a 2+ years standing affairs. I moved with my children to my home town in Florida and began a struggle of my life. About 2+ years after my divorce, I was "looking" for truth about life after death, (after my bother was killed). I was working with a dentist that was a Mormon. Talking with him and sharing what I knew about the gospel and him answering the voids of what I knew or didn't know about the gospel he began to teach me more about the restored church of Jesus Christ. When this faithful member shared each day with me the gospel, the time came when he ask me to seek and find out the truth for myself. About 2 years later I finally fell on my knees with great desire to know the truth. The Holy Ghost was ever so present in my faithful prayer to know the truth. I knew by the power of the Holy Ghost that The Church of Jesus Christ is TRUE!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I desired to know the truth about who "really" was Jesus Christ. I was raised all my life being told who He is but I reached a point in my life that I needed to know personally who Christ is. I am a Mormon because I found through prayer and pondering that the doctrines and principles that are taught are from the original church that Jesus Christ himself established. That the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the restored gospel that gives all of us direct directions in how to return to our Heaven Father. I know that Heaven Father sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to atone for all His children and sent the Holy Ghost to help us to discern the truth. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus knows me personally. They desires after me continuously and through the Holy Ghost I feel and know Their love for me. I rejoice to do my part to increase my relationship with my Heaven Father and Savior, and to returned to my heritage that is set aside for me if I successfully do my part as a heir to the kingdom of Heaven.

How I live my faith

I have been a convert to the church 9 years now and I have grown greater than I could ever imagine in my faith in Jesus Christ. I married about 3 years ago to a faithful member and this is a amazing journey. I have been able to develop great friendships with wonderful ladies in the church. I have been able to work with our young girls and be involved with their activities that they do throughout the year. My husband and I love to share the gospel to anyone. The positive feed back that we get back from ones who don't know that we are LDS are welcoming and desire to know more. This is what puts a smile on our faces, to be able to share what the Lord wants all His children to hear. Reading, praying and pondering is a key to increase faith and I delight in keeping the Lord's commandments.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

How can we increase out faith in Jesus Christ? I believe by simply doing what He has commanded me to do. Jesus says, if you love me keep my commandments. I know that reading,studying and pondering the gospel each day and practicing the principles that the Lord as taught, is how I show my Savior that I do love Him. I pray for increase faith and to put my trust in Him not the flesh of man. I'm realizing the greater that I desire to have increase faith and pray for it that it is given to me I fell it in my daily life and it makes my trails in life less challenging. The peace and joy that enters in to my soul from my faith in Christ is something I desire to share with all who desires to be happy and be fill with peace and joy as well.
