Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jenn and I am 38 years alive. I have been married for nearly 17 years and have three wonderful children. I most recently worked as a community news editor for my local paper, but returned home to my children last fall. I plan to return to school in the near future. I enjoy beading, harrasing my children, music and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

The missionaries found my mother when I was just a baby and I was raised in the church. The members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints played a huge role in who I am today. Being raised by a single mother was trying and several members of the church stepped up and stepped in to keep our family active. Although I have been a member all my life, conversion is constant. Over the coarse of my life I have learned by great trial and error to rely on the Lord and draw closer to my Father in Heaven by living the principles of the Gospel. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the anchor of my life. It guides my choices and gives me hope. I stand firmly in faith in a world of chaos knowing that I am a daughter of God and knowing that He protects and guides me. Through the promise of eternal life, I can forever share the happiness derived from living the Gospel with my family and loved ones. For me, there is no greater promise.

How I live my faith

Line upon line, precept on precept...one day at a time.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Jennifer
Absolutely! It only makes sense that a loving God would desire His children to return to him. Just as we send our own children out into the world to experience and learn each day, so does our Father in Heaven. Just as we welcome our children with open and loving arms as they return home each day, so does He. Mothers and Fathers, husbands and wives, are essential to the Plan of Salvation. We, with God, are the creators of earthly families. If we respect our stewardships in marriage and family, remain faithful to the Gospel and endure until the end, we will indead be eternally rewarded. My husband's grandmother passed away a few weeks ago. She was 101 years old. She joined the church when she was 99. I attended her baptism and gained an even stronger testimony that it is never too late to make changes and follow the Savior. As I prepared her body for buriel, a true privilege, I felt anticipation and a peaceful reassurance knowing that our spirits would be reunited after this life. As I said before, it only makes sense that an eternal God would grant eternal life for His children. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Jennifer
No. Regardless of individual experiences and religious beliefs, we are all children of God. That means we are all brothers and sisters. In all our actions we should respect each other as such. We are called on in this life to be of service to all mankind. It is not our position to judge or discriminate. It is our responsibility to love and serve our brothers and sisters as the Savior has loved and served us. Show more Show less
