Hi I'm Jennifer

I love school and family. My biggest dream in life is to be a stay-at-home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently returned from serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the beautiful country of France. I will shortly start my university studies again, in the area of marriage and family studies. I'm considering becoming a therapist to help with some of the problems families face in the world today. But more than anything else, I want to get married and have my own happy family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to be raised as a member of the Church. As I have grown up, I have gained my own knowledge of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and of the joy that comes from choosing what is right. Recognizing answers to prayers, tender mercies from the Lord, and promptings from the Holy Ghost strengthen that knowledge and help me to come closer to my Savior and want to become more like Him.

How I live my faith

For me, being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not just about going to church on Sunday. It is much more than that. Living my faith is truly a way of life and impacts everything that I do. Among other things, I have daily scripture study and prayer; I listen to the counsel of the leaders of the Church and try to obey what they ask me to do; I strive each day to look for opportunities to help those around me; and I continually try to follow the Holy Ghost and make good decisions that will allow me to return to live with my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ someday. In addition to these things, I put my schooling and social life on hold for the last 18 months so I could serve my Savior Jesus Christ as a representative and missionary for Him. This experience brought me happiness and blessings that I cannot explain!

What do Mormons believe about family?

As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we believe that families can be together forever through sacred covenants made in holy temples. We believe that a man and a woman, worthy and sealed in the temple for time and all eternity, can create a marriage and a family that will continue beyond this mortal life. Continual worthiness and obedience are also prerequisites for an eternal family. Because families can be together forever, we believe that we can see deceased loved ones again someday. Knowing that death is not the end brings me so much comfort and peace. Show more Show less
