Hi I'm Jennifer Alexander

I'm a mormon, a wife, a mom, a runner.

About Me

Washington state is where I was raised, loving the green and wet outdoors. I served a mission for the LDS church in the Micronesian Islands. In Northern VA, I taught middle school Math and capitalized on adventures running and cycling in Washington DC often. I love our country, the United States, for the principles upon which it was founded. I received a Masters degrees in Instruction Psychology & Technology from BYU while getting married at age 28. Two months after completing my degree we welcomed our first baby girl into this world. She is a joy in my life. Running, swimming, hiking and waterskiing are some activities I most enjoy with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

As I read from the Book of Mormon, I feel peace each day that I have never experienced so consistently by other means. The Prophet Joseph Smith was truly given power and authority from God to translate this ancient record, now called the Book of Mormon, for us to read and learn from today. As I study the experiences of the Prophets of the Book of Mormon, I gain increased confidence in Jesus Christ's love and sacrifice for me and know I can please God and increase in true joy by following His teachings.

How I live my faith

Building relationships with people from various faiths and cultures, I have found that we often have something in common, and that is a love for our families and a desire to enjoy peace, joy and success. No matter where I go, I try to share my love for the Lord in the way that I interact with and serve others. When I am out running through cities and neighborhoods, I try to be friendly and look for ways to serve people along the way.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jennifer Alexander
If Christians are individuals who strive to learn and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, then YES. We are taught of Christ and lean up Christ as our Savior and Redeemer. We look for Christ and his example, including Christ's workings with his disciples and Prophets. Show more Show less
