Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a wife, a mom of 4, a beekeeper, a Master Gardener, a swim teacher, a Texan, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love puttering in the garden, playing Mario Kart with my kids, when our dog sleeps on my legs on a cold night, colorful socks, the smell of coconut lotion, and when I catch my husband turning down the bed sheets for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I am happier when I obey the commandments of God and live up to the covenants I have made with Him. I have made many mistakes; some big, some little; some a long time ago, and some recently. I have learned through those mistakes and trials that my Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to be happy. I am an incredibly flawed woman and I need help to triumph over my shortcomings. My Heavenly Father and my Savior, Jesus Christ, love me. I know this without a shadow of a doubt. Knowing this gives me hope and happiness, and THAT is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I get the awesome opportunity to work with the youth at church! I'm also super lucky that 2 of my 4 kids are in the youth program. I love that the things that I try and teach my kids at home get reiterated at church; as a parent I need that support system! I'm so grateful that there is a web of great people that help me raise my kids; whether it's another parent, their Sunday School teacher, our Bishop, one of their friends, or by hearing someone boldly testify of what they know to be true. It's much easier to live my faith with the help of other great individuals!!!!

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

The purpose of life is to be happy! Our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy. What brings us happiness? For me, it's the people in my life; my family. The family I have created with my husband and the family I came from with my parents and siblings. I know I come from a larger, eternal family with my Heavenly parents and all the souls who they created. It's so cool that God created families! Show more Show less
