Hi I'm Jen

I'm Health Care Management major, and I work in an ER. I love to read books, play music and meet new people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert to the church, baptized on February 6th, 2010. I'm a Health Care Management major, and I enjoy anything that has to do with Latin American culture. I love to read The Harry Potter series, and anything by Jane Austen is amazing! Holidays are my favorite; I love to over decorate for all of them. I'm a huge fan of horses, mountains, and the ocean. Hawaii is my favorite place in the world. Teaching is my passion, music is my heart! I've played cello for 15 years, and I love to sing. I currently work in the Emergency Trauma Center here in Saint Cloud, and I absolutely love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I was never looking to change my life. I was happy as a Catholic, which is the religion I grew up with; but Heavenly Father knew better. The church found me, and I am forever grateful for it. There is a spirit with this church that can not be found anywhere else. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and it has made a world of difference in my life. This church brings me happiness because I know it's where I belong.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best person I can be. I continually strive to share the things I've mastered, and perfect the things I have not. I know my standards, and I don't lower them for anyone. I dress modestly, refrain from swearing, and do not drink alcohol, no matter what. And I do this, not because it's a rule, but because I want to. Most importantly, I work hard to let the light of Christ shine through me.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

The word "testimony" is used frequently by members of The Church. When they use this, what they mean is they have knowledge that a certain principle or doctrine is true because they have studied it, and received a witness of it from the Holy Ghost. For example, to gain a 'testimony' of the Book of Mormon, you read it, study it, and ask Heavenly Father if it is true. He will typically respond with a feeling of peace or happiness. This feeling is the witness from the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true. Once you receive this witness, you have built a testimony of the Book Of Mormon. This process can be applied to any aspect of The Church, or your life. Show more Show less
