Hi I'm Jennifer.

I am a wife, mother, author, singer, blogger, and a real estate investor. I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Queens, New York, about 20 minutes from Manhattan, where I had many adventures. I love my devoted husband, and two precious sons, who are growing up way too fast. I enjoy reading books, photography, singing at church. I'm also real estate investor, and an author of a children's book, about one of my sons and one of my cats. Although I live with chronic pain, my life is full of hope, joy, and gratitude for my Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

My family and I were baptized when I was nine years old in Queens, New York. Two young missionaries knocked on our door one day, and my parents let them in to teach us His gospel. It was wonderful to grow up learning who I am, and why I'm here. I am very grateful to be a member of His Church because of the personal guidance I receive for my life on a daily basis. It is wonderful to know that I am a child of God, and He loves me on both my good and bad days, and will always make my burden lighter if I let Him.

How I live my faith

One of the greatest blessings I receive in church is through service. By serving others, I have developed many, skills such as teaching children, teenagers, and adults the gospel, how to lead music when we sing at church. I have a calling in church with genealogy and help people search for their ancestors. Praying, reading scriptures,and listening to uplifting music guide my life.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes! God loves His children and wants us to lead happier and better lives in this confusing world. Throughout history, God selected prophets such as Noah, Abraham, and Moses to teach the gospel and direct His Church. When Jesus Christ lived on the earth, He called twelve men to be His Apostles and laid His hands on their heads and gave them the power and authority of the priesthood. After the Savior's death, the Apostles were persecuted by wicked people. When the last Apostle died, the Lord's priesthood was taken off the earth. There were centuries of spiritual darkness until the 19th century when God called a young man named Joseph Smith as His prophet. Through him the fullness of the gospel was restored to the earth. We have a living prophet today, President Thomas S. Monson, to lead and direct His restored Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Show more Show less
