Hi I'm Jayne

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married with 7 children and 7 grandsons and 3 granddaughters. I like to read and do gardening. I have an organic garden that I enjoy working in. I also like to work on being healthy through exercise and healthy eating.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but there came a time as a young adult when I realized that I needed to have my own conviction of the truthfulness of my religion. It wasn't good enough to get by on the convictions of family members or friends. Through prayer, scripture study and reflection I came to know for myself of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and that this church is truly His church. This knowledge gave me a great desire to be a missionary for my church so that others could also know of these truths. I served as a full-time missionary in Washington D.C. It was a great blessing to me to have served, and my mission experience continues to positively influence my life.

How I live my faith

I have had the privilege over the years to have served in a number of different positions in the Church in areas that we have lived in. I have served in the women's organization, as well as in the children's organization and the young women's organization (12-18). I even had the opportunity to serve in our local German-speaking congegration as we lived in Germany, even though I didn't understand the language very well in the beginning. It was a great way to learn the language! I enjoy being able to serve in the different capacities I have been called to serve in. I have grown from them all. In addition, I try to be a good wife, mother (and grandmother!) and neighbor. I also try to follow the counsel of our Church leaders realizing that what they tell us comes from God and is designed to help us be happy.

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are definitely Christians. The official name of our Church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer, and that he leads and guides this Church through living prophets today. Show more Show less
