Hi I'm Jenn

I am a daughter of God, wife, mother, graduate student, piano teacher, sister and friend. I grew up in a Casino:) I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jenn. I am most importantly a wife, mother, daughter, and sister. I'm married to my best friend, who is an amazing husband. I have 4 wonderful children. I love to play games, crochet, read, and visit with family and friends. I love learning new things. I love to have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was eight years old. My family is Mormon. I always believed in the principles that our church teaches, but I feel that I was truly converted when I was 19 years old. That was when I started to fully live the kind of life that embraced the gospel. I have read the Book of Mormon and studied the Bible. I have felt the Spirit of truth testify to me that they are true. I have prayed about these wonderful books and received witnesses that they are true. I am happiest when I am living the gospel and following it's precepts.

How I live my faith

I love living my faith! It brings me so much happiness. Right now I play the organ on Sundays for my church. It's a bit nerve-wracking but I love it. The hymns are so uplifting to me. I also visit 3 women in my neighborhood on a regular basis. I share gospel messages with them and make sure they are doing well. They have become great friends to me.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Jenn
No. Back when the church was first organized, polygamy was practiced for a time. God revealed to our prophet that polygamy was no longer needed, so we no longer practice it. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Jenn
We believe that God is a loving, fair Father. There are people who have not had the opportunity to hear the Gospel, accept it and get baptized. This is why we do baptisms for the dead. We stand in place of the deceased person because they are not longer able to do so. It is then up to them if they will actually accept the work we've done for them. They still have their agency.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Jenn
The Holy Ghost, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ make up the Godhead. The Holy Ghost is often called the Comforter. One of His purposes is to testify of Jesus Christ. The Holy Ghost teaches us of truthful things. He guides us and helps us choose the right. He inspires and directs us throughout our lives, leading us back to our Savior. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Jenn
Anyone can attend a Mormon Church service. Our Sabbath day services include singing hymns, listening to talks about spiritual matters, partaking of the Sacrament. To enter a Mormon Temple, you have to have a Temple Recommend. To receive a Temple Recommend, you need to be an active member of the church, in good standing with the church. Your local church leaders interview you to see if you are worthy to go to the Temple. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jenn
NO. We worship God and His Son, Jesus Christ. This is Christ's church, not Joseph Smith's church. I love and admire Joseph Smith. I'm so grateful to him for the sacrifices he made for our church. He helped organized the church and translate the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less

We have been sent to Earth to receive a physical body and to be tested. We will be tried and tested so that we may grow into strong, intelligent, loving followers of Jesus Christ.

Ultimately, we are to live righteous lives so that we may return to live with our Father in Heaven someday. Show more Show less
