Hi I'm Jill

I grew up in a family of 9 children. I have 5 children of my own. I work at a high school library. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am blessed to be a wife and mother. I didn't attend college but work at a high school in the library. I enjoy reading (especially true stories), sewing (when I'm in the right mood) and making new holiday pillows, craft projects, swimming, vacations with my husband and sometimes my kids and grand kids. I grew up in a large family and we worked in a family business.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to a Mormon family, but I still reached a time when I needed to know if the gospel was true for myself. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I felt the spirit telling me if was true constantly through my reading and prayers. I love the Savior and my Heavenly Father. I love Joseph Smith and know with all my heart that he saw our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and helped restore the gospel to the earth in our day. I know this so strongly that I can not deny it. The gospel feels my life with a joy that I don't want to live with out. When I get lazy and don't read the scriptures I don't feel the spirit as strongly. I know that I can repent and be forgiven and continue on the path of happiness.

How I live my faith

I serve in an organization for the the women in my ward. We enjoy learning about the gospel of Jesus Christ together. I have the opportunity to plan with a few other women activities 4 times a year where we learn different things to help us in our lives. During these activities we also get to have time to socialize and get to know each other better. Sometimes we plan activities where we do service. I also serve as a visiting teacher and visit monthly in 4 other women's homes to get to know them and be of help with anything they may need. I also enjoy getting to know and being friends with others in my neighborhood who are not of my faith.
