Hi I'm Jennifer Eliot Thornburg

I am a native New Mexican. I love my family. I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I am a homeschooling mother of 7. Most of them are grown up now. My husband and I joined the church together in our 30's.

Why I am a Mormon

I had grown up going to Christian churches, so I was very familiar with the Bible. The Mormon missionaries were able to add wonderful things to my knowledge. All of my questions about the purpose of life were completely answered. I like the doctrine of personal revelation, and the fact that, anciently, Jesus Christ was learned about somewhere else in the world besides the Middle East.

How I live my faith

"The mark of a great book is that it changes every time you read it" I study my Bible, and Book of Mormon almost daily. When I finish, I start over again. Then I pray for guidance to put everything I learn to action. Do I make mistakes? Oh, yes! How do I repent? By asking for forgivenes, and then study and pray some more. I try to share with others what I have learned, and I listen to what they have learned.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

You get to know someone by spending time with them. To know our Father in Heaven, spend time with Him by reading the scriptures. The scriptures are His messages to us. Also Prayer and Sunday School are other ways to get to know Him. Show more Show less
