Hi I'm Jena

I'm the one on the left. I'm an editor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just turned 29. Jeff and I got married in August 2010, after four years of trying to figure it out. I think we figured it out--I'm happier than I've ever been. I love editing and teaching, but I'm only an editor if I'm getting paid for it. You may speak freely--I won't call you on a dangling participle or a run-on sentence, unless you want me to. I love to run and bike and ski and cook. And eat. I love to eat. So the running thing comes in handy.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know Christ is my Savior. I'm a Mormon because I want to be like Him, and because I know His atonement and His love can help me become my best self. And I'm a Mormon because I know my best self is someone who serves Him and helps others. I'm also a Mormon because I want to be with my amazing mom and dad and brothers and sister and husband forever, and if we do what Christ has asked us to, we can be. I have an eternal family because Christ has given us the power to be sealed together forever. I keep His commandments, and He gives me eternity with those I love. Sweet deal if you ask me.

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith by doing my best, and not beating myself up over little errors. I try to do better every day. I've been married for six months, and right now we live the gospel by going to Church, having personal, meaningful prayer, filling our callings (we serve as Sunday School teachers for our ward), and by becoming self sufficient. We have jobs and we're working to be in a position to help others, in whatever way the Lord will ask us. Most importantly, I live my faith by strengthening my relationship with the Savior, and with my husband. We believe in families and having strong, faithful, hard-working families, and we're excited for the time when we'll be bringing children into this world.
