Hi I'm Jennie

I'm a Mormon. I live in the Pacific NW (USA) with my husband and three children.

About Me

I was born in Southern California, and moved to Idaho, Massachusetts, Utah, and now live in Washington state. My kids are in the tween/teen age, and I'm adjusting to my growing age and my kid's hormone changes! I work full time as a Legal Secretary, and love spending time with my family. I serve in the Young Women's organization at church, and enjoy witnessing the strength of the youth of today.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS church. I have made life-long friendships with church members as I've grown and attended a church college. I love how easy the standards of the church are to live. They just make sense, and help us to prepare our lives so we can live happily and return to our Heavenly Father's presence.

How I live my faith

I must admit that I'm not a great missionary. I choose instead, to live a life as much as possible that's in line with the teachings of the gospel. I hope that I'm a good example of a member of the church, and strive to make good choices on a daily basis!

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

We are baptized for the remission of our sins, and to invite the Spirit of God (the Holy Ghost) to dwell with us on a constant basis as we live worthily day to day. The baptism is not performed in front of the entire ward or church, but is an intimate ceremony where friends, family and church leaders are there to support and witness the important event. The act of baptism is our physical way of showing God and others that we are ready to enter into His fold, that we will be witnesses of Him. Show more Show less
