Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a wife, a mother, a teacher. I speak my mind. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of two--a girl (5) and a boy (2). I am married to a perfect husband--really! He's not a perfect person, but he's a perfect husband. And I LOVE HIM. Right now I am working as an adjunct profession for an online college. I am blessed enough to get to stay at home with my children and watch them grow and develop while staying involved in the world of education--my other passion. I speak fluent Spanish and have worked as a teacher of English language learners for 15 years and as a reading specialist. Teaching reading is an OBSESSION for me. I love to scrapbook, read, go out to eat and spend time with my family. I love to laugh and spend time with people who can make me do so--my kiddos, my husband and good friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Midwest--one of four daughters. My mother was a Mormon, my father was not. At a young age, I realized I had to make decision about what I really believed. I'm not one who easily goes along with the crowd or does what I'm told, unless I feel that what I'm doing is right--then there's no stopping me. I spent my teenage years putting my beliefs to the test. I spent a lot of time trying to draw closer to God through scripture study and prayer. It was hard; I wasn't a popular teenager, and it was mostly because of my beliefs. But, in spite of the teasing and ridicule, there was something inside of me that told me I was making the right choice, and that I needed to continue to do so. Blessings beyond measure have come into my life as I continue to put my beliefs to the test every day. It's because of those tests that I know of a certainty that what I believe is true. And I know that Jesus Christ is the source of all truth, and that it is because of Him and His power that I can continue to press forward and do what is right.

How I live my faith

I try my best each and every day to do what my Savior would have me do. I try to serve in my family, my neighborhood, my community and my church. I spend time each day praying, studying the scriptures and serving others in order to know how best to live my faith that day so that I can be a witness of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I try to love my children as He would. I teach about Jesus Christ each Sunday in Sunday School where I teach 15 and 16 year-old youth. I try to think about those that I know who might need to feel of His love and act on the impressions I receive. They may lead me to take a meal to a family in need, make a phone call, lend a listening ear, tend a neighbor's children, run an errand for an elderly family member or just give someone a smile. I know that I am best living my faith when I try to be like Jesus.
