Hi I'm Jenn

I love traveling. I love people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college-grad, currently working in the event planning arena. I love studying new cultures, meeting new people, and visiting new places. I am married to a wonderful man who is not a Mormon, but does belong to the Christian faith. So, while we have differences in our faith, we share our love for our Savior, Jesus Christ. We look forward to the adventures we have ahead together, and with our future family.

Why I am a Mormon

If one was to look at this logically, he/she would say that I am a Mormon because my father was raised in the Church and my mom is a convert to the Church. And while this may explain why I was born a Mormon, it doesn't explain why I am today. I have searched the scriptures. I have prayed. I have pondered the things I have been taught. I know they are true. The Lord speaks to all of us daily. We just have to be willing to listen. I am a Mormon because of this knowledge. I believe we all can have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father. We just have to do our part to make it happen.

How I live my faith

One of the wonderful things about the LDS church is how involved all the members can get. I have taught children in primary, taught lessons to the adult women, and served as a ward missionary. These callings have brought me much joy, and closer to my Heavenly Father. They've helped me to get to know other in the Church, and I have developed many long-lasting friendships because of them.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Jenn
No, the Church does not endorse political parties. Politics and the LDS Church are completely separate entities. Yes, the Church may make a moral statement about a controversial issue, but the Church does not tell us who we should or should not vote for. Our beliefs definitely influence our choices in the political arena - they do for everyone. The thing is that we will not always agree with everyone in our church all the time. There are faithful members of the Church on both sides of political issues. Sometimes, we, as imperfect humans, can get involved in arguments, name-calling, and contention, but this is not of God. I believe it is important for all members to remember that we all come from different backgrounds, have different beliefs on certain issues, and we are all here to learn from each other. I'm grateful to be a member of a church that constantly reminds us of this. Show more Show less
