Hi I'm Jen

I'm a runner, a life-long learner, a wife, and a mother of 4.

About Me

On my own, I enjoy running outdoors, lifting weights indoors, scrapbooking, reading and playing the piano. With my family, I like to read aloud, swim, follow BYU football and watch movies. I love to learn, participate in a women's study group, volunteer at my children's school, and teach a Sunday School class at church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know God has a plan for each one of us and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gives me answers and aid in living God's plan. I've been taught the gospel of Jesus Christ since I was a toddler, was baptized at age 8 and lived the gospel because I believed it true. I had faith God's plan was for us to be born on earth, gain experience and be proved, participate in God's saving ordinances like baptism, and return to Him at death, made possible by the atonement of Jesus Christ. I was happy when I lived the way I felt was right. Then when I was 19 my mom died and that belief became knowledge as God's plan of happiness came to life in mine. It was like the belief in my head changed from being in black and white into my heart in technicolor. God's Holy Spirit has spoken to my mind and heart countless times, testifying that Jesus Christ is my Savior, that He does have a plan for me and that through His restored church I can be happy now and live with Him and my loved ones after I die.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by wearing modest clothing despite the hot temperatures here in Arizona, USA. I pray to God, our Heavenly Father, and teach my children how to communicate with Him through prayer. I study the scriptures and words of modern prophets. I attend church with my husband and our four young children for three hours every Sunday. I serve my local congregation and worship in the temple. I sing to my children songs about Jesus. I marvel at nature and the beauty God has created for us. I am a loyal friend and try to uplift others.
