Hi I'm Jen

I'm a wife and mother of 4. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife and stay at home mom of 4 children. I'm happy when we're all just able to be together! As a family we're fond of getting outside, going on many adventures and learning new things. We especially love hiking, camping, cross country skiing, and playing games together. I enjoy reading, cooking, baking, sewing, and learning to play the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I moved far away from home after graduating high school to attend college in Utah. Although I was raised Mormon, living away from my family and friends allowed me to decide exactly what I wanted to do with my life and the kind of person I wanted to become. It became clear to me very early on that the greatest happiness I could find came through following my Savior Jesus Christ. I came to know more strongly that I had a loving Father in Heaven who heard my prayers and loved me. My testimony of Joseph Smith and The Book of Mormon grew as I sought and found comfort in the words I read as I studied the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I've been able to learn new skills as I've been asked to take assignments at church. Right now I help with a group of boys in the Cub Scouting program. One of my favorite things about this responsibility is that I get to work with my own son. It's fun to watch the boys learn and grow in the Cub Scouting program. All of the boys are so enthusiastic about learning new skills. I also have the opportunity to get to know other women around me through Visiting Teaching. As I visit with other women I learn about their strengths as well as trials they have faced. It gives me strength to get to know them and learn from them. All of us have trials in this life and can learn a great deal as we take the time to get to know and serve one another.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is believing and knowing truth. I have a testimony that I am a daughter of a loving God, it is something I believe and know to be true. I have a testimony in Jesus Christ, that he lived a perfect life, atoned for my sins and sorrows and then died so we could all live again. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus Christ and translated the Book of Mormon, which is another witness of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

The beautiful promise of eternal families gives me so much comfort and peace! My father passed away suddenly when I was just 21. I was shocked and heartbroken. I still miss him and feel grief over his loss, but at the same time I know that my relationship with him is not broken or lost. I know I will see him again and I truly feel excited for that day!
