Hi I'm Jen!
I'm a married girl in my 30s with a penchant for all things domestic. I have a BA in English, and I'm a writer & editor by trade, but I quit work to stay home with my first set of twins just after they were born. Now I'm chasing two sets of twins, and reviewing books on the side. I love it! When I'm not reading and writing, I love to knit, cook, and I started running a little over a year ago. I try hard not to proselyte about exercise. :)
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised as a member of the LDS church, but during college, I found myself needing to decide for myself whether I was truly committed or not. I tried living without the gospel, and found out just how unhappy I was without it. I'm so grateful for the truths I have and the blessings that come from following Jesus Christ.
How I live my faith
My faith is ingrained in so much of my everyday life. I find that my approach to things and my attitudes are filled with the hope and joy of knowing how much my Heavenly Father loves me, and all of us. I'm overwhelmed, sometimes, with the beauty of the truths contained in the gospel of Jesus Christ: eternal families, a Savior who atoned for us and made repentance possible, and a Father in Heaven who knows us personally and hears and answers our prayers. Those truths are carried with me each day, as I go about the crazy daily tasks on my list--the dishes, the insane lists of errands, the mountains of laundry--and they make all the difference.
