Hi I'm Jenni

I love learning. I love reading. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of five children and love to be with them and my extended family! Camping and sports are some of my favorite things to do. I served a mission in New York (Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island) and currently I'm a student at BYU-Idaho studying Elementary Education. I love working with kids and love to see when that 'light' comes on and they understand something new. One of my favorite things about going to school at BYU-Idaho is that I am able to include the Gospel in any subject I study. Looking at the world, and every aspect of it from the angle of the gospel makes everything make more sense. I hope that I can use that to improve my teaching methods so that when I get a job somewhere I can be an effective teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and for a while just went with the flow. However, after a while I knew that I wanted to know for myself if this was the true church. So I did what I had always been told to do. I read the Book of Mormon and Prayed to know if it was true. I received the answer that it is true! From there I prayed about the other teachings of the Church and now I know not just believe that the Church is God's Church. Another reason I know this to be the true church is because every time I have been taught something new and applied it to my life I am happy. The Lord isn't going to give us something that makes us confused or sad. He Loves us and I feel that love every time I attend church or read the teachings of the prophets.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily by trying to be a good example to those around me. I try my best to talk to everyone I come across. I pray each morning that I can have a missionary experience that day. I've been home from my mission just over eight months and still miss having unlimited opportunities to introduce the gospel to someone new. It is harder to teach people when the majority of those around are of my same faith, but there are other ways that I can follow my Lord and Savior and live my faith. I am always open to answering questions to those who ask.
