Hi I'm Jen

I grew up in Idaho. I now live in Utah with my good husband and four wonderful children. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am first and foremost a Mom to four wonderful kids. I enjoy spending time with them and watching them grow and develop their personalities and talents. I am married to a great husband who I also enjoy spending time with. One of our favorite things to do together is try all kinds of food....we rarely try something we don't like. My educational degrees and interests are in the Health and Fitness field. My favorite hobby is exercise...I love to run, bike, lift weights, do yoga, etc....Other hobbies of mine include: cooking (when I have the time), traveling (when I have the money), and bargain shopping. My husband boasts that he has a wife who loves sports (playing and watching). I enjoy spending time with my siblings and in-laws. I have a loving and supportive family, which I appreciate. I also enjoy having friends and getting to know people better. I enjoy talking about the gospel and the blessings it brings to my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the wonderful and happy life it has helped me to lead. I feel the blessings and peace of the gospel of Jesus Christ each day, and see how it blesses my family. I know for myself the joy of having truth and faith to give me a foundation and direction for all of life's challenges and questions. I know that true happiness is found in living the standards and principles the Lord himself taught and that the influence of His Spirit is a precious gift that blesses my life. I love the life that membership in His church gives me!

How I live my faith

I love being a part of this Church. I think it's amazing how each member is challenged and given opportunities to learn, serve, and grow in different capacities at different times. Right now I serve in the women's organization of the Church in my ward. I have enjoyed getting to know and love the sisters that I am blessed to serve in this calling. And, I have learned so much. In my personal and family life I live my faith by saying daily prayers, reading and studying the scriptures, and trying my best to keep the commandments of the Lord. I try to act with integrity and be kind to those around me. I try to make progress and correct my mistakes so that I can be a better person. I really try to teach my children to have a knowledge and conviction of the gospel for themselves.
