Hi I'm Jaclyn Makin

I am a teacher. I love to travel and spend time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old. I just graduated from college with my degree in elementary education. I teach second grade. In my free time I love to travel!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me a better person. Through my faith I am able to find peace and joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best me I can be! I serve the women in my church through visiting teaching.

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Jaclyn Makin
Women hold a very important place in our church, however, they have a different calling than the men, the sacred calling of motherhood. Women may also have other callings in our church just like men. Some are called to serve in the Relief Society (an organization of women in our church), others to serve as teachers, and much more. Show more Show less
