Hi I'm Colleen Jean

About Me

I am a proud Canadian! I am the mother of three beautiful children. Two are grown up and one is about to leave the nest. I work as an educational assistant, helping special needs children. I also take care of a mentally challenged adult in my home. Though it is often challenging, I feel that my life has been blessed by surrounding myself with these special people. Life does seem overwhelming at times, but through the support of my husband and the peace that I find in the study of scriptures and daily prayer, I am able to carry on.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was fifteen years old two missionaries came to our door. My mom told me to send them away. I felt so bad and saw something in their countenance that stayed in my heart. A few weeks later we were invited to attend the LDS church by an old friend of my fathers. We invited the missionaries over for dinner that week, and they began to teach us. The thing that excited me the most was to learn that there was a prophet on the earth today. It made perfect sense to me - why would the Lord not have a prophet for us now, when He always did in the days of Moses and Noah. It took some time, but by the time I was sixteen, we were all baptized.

How I live my faith

I pray and search the scriptures for answers daily, I attend church every Sunday. I serve in the presidency of our women's auxilliary, which involves planning lessons for Sunday meetings, getting together and discussing and praying for ways to strengthen the women in our area. We visit those who are in need and make sure that they get any extra support that they might need during times of sickness or family struggles.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Colleen Jean
Yes, I truly believe and am so thankful that there is a prophet like Moses alive today. Thomas S. Monson is our prophet today and just as Moses lead the children of Israel out of bondage so long ago, President Monson leads us and gives us spiritual guidance that frees us from the woes of todays world. He tells amazing stories that give me hope and ideas of how I can improve my life and make the best of my part of the world. Show more Show less
