Hi I'm Jenna

I am the wife of a law student & the mother of two. I am a nurse practitioner. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I studied nursing in college and have a master's degree as a nurse practitioner. I love to learn and help people--especially when it involves medicine. I worked as a nurse and nurse practitioner in a variety of settings before my husband and I made the decision to move across the country so that he could study law. We are now in the middle of our law school adventures. When I have time (and space) I love to garden and sew little dresses for my daughters. Some of my other hobbies include, quilting, cooking, scrap-booking, reading good books, and playing the piano. I am an avid soccer player and runner.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for many reasons, but the most important three are these: First, I am a Mormon because it answers the questions I have about life. It makes sense to me that I lived before and will live after my time here on Earth. The Church of Jesus Christ offers the most complete and satisfactory explanations for questions like where I did I come from, why am I here on Earth, is there a God, what is He like, and so much more. Second, I'm a Mormon because my family is very important to me. I love them, and I want to be with them forever. Because Jesus Christ restored His gospel to the Earth in these last days, marriages and families can continue after this life. Third, I am a Mormon because I want to peace and happiness in this life. I believe that following the commandments and the example of our Savior Jesus Christ makes it possible for me to avoid the consequences of sin, and find peace and lasting happiness. If I sin or make wrong choices, a loving and supportive God made it possible through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, for me to repent and make a fresh start. This gives me hope, happiness, and peace.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as I try to be a better wife, mother, and member of our community. I am visiting teacher which means I am also responsible for serving three sisters in our ward or geographic grouping of members. I contact them frequently, share a short message with them each month, and make sure their needs are being met.
