Hi I'm Jenna
I love writing jokes. I love making people laugh. I'm a comedian! And I'm a Mormon.
I'm a comedian! I love to make people laugh and can't think of anything else I'd rather do. I come from a big family who, I would argue, are much funnier than me. As a result, they are a big inspiration in my comedy. In the last 7 years, I've become an aunt to 7 nieces and 4 nephews and I love them dearly. Besides comedy, I spend a lot of time with friends and family, writing my blog and updating my twitter account. I also really enjoy baking (and eating) cookies.
Why I am a Mormon
Why am I a Mormon? Because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints brings more peace and joy in my life than anything else. I'm a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true and testifies of my Savior Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon because I love God. I was baptized when I was 8 years old but it wasn't until I went to college at NYU that my faith was truly tested. When I had to explain what I believed to a group of freshman students like myself, I realized that I had a real desire to know what I was teaching was true. So I prayed to my Heavenly Father, I went to church, I studied the Book of Mormon and the Bible and I know that the Lord heard me, saw my effort and blessed me with a knowledge and a feeling that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was a true church. I decided then and there that I would keep His commandments and that I wouldn't be afraid to share His gospel with others. Being a Mormon taught me who I am, a daughter of God, and I am beyond grateful for that.
How I live my faith
I love attending church every Sunday. It's a great time to spiritually recharge after a long week and catch up with good friends. I have the opportunity to teach the women I go to church with once a month on various gospel subjects. It's wonderful to be able to share my thoughts with them and also hear their own as we discuss different principles of our faith. Being a stand up comedian, I knew I wanted to write clean jokes that reflected who I was and the life I lived so I only write jokes that I am comfortable telling on stage. Sometimes I am teased for that but in the end, I think most of the comedians who know that I am Mormon respect my decision to keep it clean.
