Hi I'm Jenna

I'm a writer. I'm a musician. I love to make my home a beautiful place. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married to my sweetheart since December 2005. In April 2009, I graduated with a Communications degree, emphasis in Broadcast Journalism. As part of my education, I completed an internship at a local news station. Now, I'm a stay-at-home mom to my beautiful daughter and darling son. I am a freelance writer and blogger on the side. I love music and I'm an avid singer and pianist. I enjoy creating beauty in my home and enriching my children's lives with meaningful experiences. My motto -- Find where you fit and embrace your place.   

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the Mormon Church, I read the Book of Mormon in its entirety for the first time when I was 14 years old. I put Moroni's promise (Moroni 10: 3-5) to the test, prayed about its truthfulness and couldn't deny what I felt. I knew it was true! I continue to practice my faith because the gospel of Jesus Christ is simple and beautiful, and it gives my life meaning. When I follow my faith, I feel God's love most abundantly in my life. It makes me happy. Through the gospel, I know who I am -- a child of God.

How I live my faith

In my congregation, I lead the music for the children's services in Primary. I love providing the music for the children. The songs are so simple but contain great truths. And there isn't a sound more beautiful than innocent children testifying of Jesus Christ through song. Music is my favorite way to teach and learn the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes! The very name of our church suggests it -- the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that Jesus Christ, the literal Son of God, suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and died for our sins on the cross at Calvary. We believe He rose from the tomb after three days so that we may all be resurrected from death. All who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and strive to do His will are saved from spiritual and physical death. Show more Show less

Who was Joseph Smith?

 When Joseph Smith was 14 years old, he wanted to know which church he should join. He went to a quiet grove of trees and prayed. He was visited by God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Christ told him that His church was not on the earth, but that Joseph would be the one to restore it in its fullness. Joseph Smith became the first prophet of Christ's restored church. Today, he is highly revered by church members for his many sacrifices in leading the early Saints. Show more Show less
