Hi I'm Jeanie Barker Vance

I have lived in Utah all my life and I"m a Mormon. I love being a Mormon and I love living in Utah. I live a very simple life.

About Me

I love serving others. I am employed at an elementary school and I enjoy helping children and the people I work with. I enjoy quilting, gardening, crafts, cooking, walking outside and camping with my family. I love to travel. I am married and I have 3 children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my belief in a Heavenly Father. One who I can pray to who listens and answers my prayers. I also believe in Jesus Christ and it is His church that I belong to, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. We are also called Mormon's. I love the Book of Mormon that is another testament of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon along with the Bible give me answers to life's challenges. I have been baptized and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are three separate personages that work as one. I know that God is with me everyday and helps me. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I can carry on in the world. I know that the Holy Ghost speaks to me everyday, if I live worthy. I am so blessed to know where I came from before this life. I know why I am here on this earth today and what I must do to one day return to my Heavenly Father. I have had one son leave home for two years and return and another now serving our church as a missionary. It is a huge sacrifice for the young man or woman to serve and for their families. It has been a very difficult thing to send my sons out into the world, but it has been a huge blessing for them, me and our family. It is a special opportunity to go out into the world and spread the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am thankful for modern day temples where I can have my faith strengthened in life after death. I am thankful to be a Mormon and want to share my testimony of the truthfulness of my faith. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ was lost on the earth for a time and that it was restored and is back on the earth at this time and God speaks through a modern day prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I am thankful for a prophet to guide me in these difficult times and I know he will never lead me astray. I want others to share in the joy and happiness that I have.

How I live my faith

I serve in my church in many ways. I have served with youth, children, men, and women of all ages. I have helped plan many activities and have helped others to strengthen their faith. I spend many hours helping others, as do many people who share my faith.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?
