Hi I'm Jenny!
I love my family, reading, blogging, gardening, the outdoors and laughing. I call Massachusetts home and I'm a Mormon.
I'm a 50-year-old wife and mom. I teach piano lessons in my home. I like photography and blogging. I'm a believer in date nights. Dating your spouse in your 50's is probably more important than the dating we did as young adults. I love to read, write, play with my kids, garden and I always have a stash of sweets on hand. Although I don't travel much, I do love to explore the world around me, and I also love visiting historical sites and spending time in the outdoors. A defining travel experience in my life was when I spent 18 months in Colombia as a missionary for the church. I'm hopeful that there will be more mission experiences in my future.
My parents found the Mormon church when I was a small child. I have been aware of the advantages that embracing the gospel of Jesus Christ has given me as I've transitioned through my teenage, young adult and adult years. Now that I am a parent raising children of my own, I am grateful for the stability that the gospel provides in a turbulent world. I feel secure in knowing that I have answers to or can find the answers to the questions that matter most in this life.
Actively! I attend church services weekly. I get my high school-aged children off to their religion class each morning before school. I support scouting and youth group activities. Music is also an important aspect of my faith. I am an active board member of a community music program, helping to support and organize activities related to keeping students interested in and actively participating in music programs locally. I also teach piano lessons to students in my town. I oversee the local womens' organization (Relief Society) at church, providing opportunities to help women serve other women; meeting physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Living my faith is integral to how I live my life; it's an essential part of living my life completely.
