Hi I'm Jackie

I'm excited to be serving a mission in the Europe area. Learning about the people, culture, history and geography is exciting.

About Me

I have lived in beautiful Utah for most of my life. I am the oldest of 8 children and have two of my own. I love live theater, music and the wonderful outdoors. I'm a nut for organization. After being a single parent for 31 years I met and married a most wonderful man. We are serving in the Europe Area Offices. I have a masters degree in Social Work. I love to power-parachute, and have flown a glider. I have licensed as a cosmetologist, driven an 18 wheeler, raised calves, and clerked rodeo's.

Why I am a Mormon

I have spent many years studying peace and happiness and have discovered that Love is the only thing that is real. The greatest love and sacrifice came from my Savior, Jesus Christ. He is pure love. He is the only way I can over come my weaknesses and feel peace and joy. I have worked professionally with people who have experienced horrible trauma's and long addictions and witnessed the healing that comes from coming to Christ. God lives! I don't just believe it . . . I know it! I know that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins. He knows and loves me. Joseph Smith is an amazing wonderful prophet of God in our time. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I read it daily and love how it impacts my life. I know that God's prophet and apostle guide his church today.

How I live my faith

I love the Lord with all my heart so regularly attending church meetings helps me stay focused on his ways. I am so blessed to be able to attend the temple regularly. I love learning by studying the scriptures daily and try to keep a prayer in my heart always. I love visiting other women in my neighborhood through the Visiting Teaching program and try to go twice a month. I have enjoyed leading the music in the children's primary program and working with the youth and been a teacher in our women's organization for years. I like to listen to inspirational music as often as possible. I love people and professionally have used spirituality in my years of counseling. I also enjoy volunteering and have an extensive list of programs I have been involved with. I currently are having the experience of a lifetime serving a mission in Europe.
