Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a grammar nerd. I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a wife for nearly 3 years and a mom for 1 year. I get to be a full-time mom to our adorable daughter, so that takes most of my time. When I do have some moments to myself, I like to read and sew (and I also find myself wasting far too much time on the Internet).

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my entire life, but I have gained my own testimony and continue to improve upon that testimony every day. I love that this church provides a path and a plan for my life. I love to follow rules and know what's ahead, and I love how plain and simple the LDS church is. We believe in Christ. We believe in living the things He taught while he was on the Earth. We believe we can live with Him again and even become like Him. I also very much love my family and appreciate the emphasis the LDS church places on families. I am grateful we have the chance to be married for all eternity, in this life and beyond. I love my husband, my eternal companion. And I am thankful to be able to raise our children in this church. I am also grateful we have a living prophet, a mortal man who can speak for God to us, just like there were prophets in the Bible. I know President Monson is a prophet of God.

How I live my faith

I think the most important way I live my faith (at least at this point in my life, where it IS my life) is by being a full-time mom to my infant. Motherhood has been a rough transition for me, because I worked for many years before I was married. Staying home all day, nearly completely devoid of accolades, has taken some getting used to. But I know my daughter will grow to become a strong, intelligent, happy, spiritual woman because I am making this sacrifice now. I am grateful to be the one to feed her, teach her, play with her, tuck her into bed, sing her songs, and teach her she is a child of God.
