Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a wife and a mother. I am a business owner. I love to travel and SCUBA dive. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of five fun children. I was born and raised in Utah and lived there with my family until six years ago when we moved to Germany for my husband's work. Although we only expected to be here for around two years, we decided to enroll our children in the German schools to give them the full experience of living in a foreign country. It was difficult for all of us at first but we have grown tremendously from this experience and feel very much at home now.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the LDS church and grew up in a family where we studied the scriptures regularly and tried our best to live the commandments. My husband and I seek to raise our children similarly. The council we receive from living prophets has enriched our lives as we have followed it. Our prophet advised us many years ago to get our house financially in order and get out of debt as much as possible. We were told to prepare physically for emergencies by having a storage of food and water. These things have helped us physically. But more important to me is the advice from our prophets which has taught us how to build a strong and stable family. I want my children to grow up with the security of knowing their parents love each other and love them more than anything this world has to offer.

How I live my faith

To me, the essence of living the gospel of Jesus Christ is loving and helping others. I do my best to teach this to my children through my own example. I am currently leading an addiction recovery group using a format similar to Alcoholics Anonymous. It is wonderful to see the power to change lives that comes through faith on Jesus Christ and adherence to His teachings.

Are Mormons Christians?

I would hope that anyone who knows me would be able to answer this question very easily. I try to follow Christ's example in everything I do. We have a song in our church that goes "I'm trying to be like Jesus. I'm following in his ways. I'm trying to love as He did. In all that I do and say....Love one another as Jesus loves you. Try to show kindness in all that you do. Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought, for these are the things Jesus taught." This is my goal in my life: to become like Jesus by learning more about Him and His life and by following His teachings. Show more Show less
