Hi I'm Jannine

I recently retired as a secretary. I like to spin my own wool and knit it into sweaters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently retired after working as a School Secretary for three years, then as a District Office Secretary for 27 years. Being retired has given me more time to pursue a hobby I learned two years ago - spinning wool. For many years I have tried, unsuccessfully, to learn to spin wool on a hand spindle. Then I happened to look on YouTube about spinning and the world of spinning was opened to me. I learned what I was doing wrong and how to do it right. I was able to obtain a bag full of raw, uncleaned wool (very dirty, and smelly) which I washed, carded or combed, and spun into beautiful yarn. Now, I have three spinning wheels and have spun enough yarn from which I have knitted four sweaters.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church but it wasn't until I was forty years old that I gained a true testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I am a Mormon because I love the Gospel teachings. Those teachings help me to be happy, feel peace, to serve others, and most importantly, to know the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real and personal to me.

How I live my faith

Serving in my ward, in each different calling, has helped me to grow and develop spiritually and also personally. In accepting callings that I didn't think that I was capable of doing, my Heavenly Father has supported and guided me. He has inspired me above my earthly capabilities.
