Hi I'm Jennifer

I’m a convert to the church, a wife, a mother, a career woman & student. And I’m a mormon.

About Me

Of Polish decent, born and raised in the mid-west, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities whether rain, snow, or shine! I love art, music, ballet (Romeo & Juliet and The Nutcracker are my favs) and reading. I am a chocoholic who loves to make others laugh. I wear many hats...supportive wife, compassionate mother, ambitious career woman and motivated student. I keep creating my 'bucket list' or my 'life to-do' list, which includes traveling to see the world and to learn the Polish language.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a devote Catholic. When I was 5 months pregnant with my first child, my mother passed away unexpectedly at the young age of 57. After I had our second child, and the years continued to pass, I felt that I wasn’t spiritually fulfilled. I began to question which church was true. I would talk with my friends, the kind receptionist at our family dentist, my hairstylist and many others I knew, about the church each of them belonged to. For quite some time, I felt overwhelmed and uncertain about what to do for not only myself but for my family. Then the day came when I attended a church meeting. Although I was reluctant, I made an effort and went. After taking part in the Sunday meetings, I left simply saying “I get it”. My life changed then. Over the next few weeks, the missionaries taught me and my family, as I came to know the Savior and prepared to join His church. In August 2010, my husband baptized me and our eldest son. My son and I were confirmed as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. After my baptism and confirmation, I became a new person with a purpose. I cannot fully express how grateful I am that I, once a lost sheep, came to know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ – but more importantly, I know that they know me.

How I live my faith

I teach. Children, youth, adults…each of us have a story to share. In some respect we are all teachers and it is our responsibility to teach to the best of our ability. As a teacher, I feel that I am simply a facilitator of a great discussion. Learning is abundant when we are thinking, listening and sharing.
