Hi I'm Jenna

I love books and music. I grew up in the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up moving from place to place and meeting tons of people. I used to be painfully shy until We moved to B.C. and I met some great friends who helped me grow into myself and blossom I supposed you could say. Most people would not think of me as shy, quite the opposite. I've always loved hiking, swimming, walks and just enjoying the beauty of what nature has to offer. And I love talking. I guess that why I have always worked in the service industry. I took hairdressing in college and a few years later am reassessing and going back to school for Medical office assisting. I like knitting and recently took up crocheting and I just love art! And music, I love music because it can help you deal with emotions. It can make you feel happy and calm you down or get you hyped up and loving life. I love dancing and I hope to do more of it in the future. When I was growing up I tended to have very sad feelings that I didn't understand. I was moody and neurotic and everyone just attributed it to hormones. As I grew up we realised I had been battling depression for a long time. It's hereditary in my family. It's something very hard to overcome but I try to fill my life with good things and take time to reflect on my blessings. Though it's sometimes a struggle I'm learning to realise my potential and that I don't need lets those awful feelings rule my life.

Why I am a Mormon

The first thing I want to say is I know who I am. I am a daughter of God who loves me and I love him. Knowing this has helped me to get through all the tough times I've had in my life. God loves us and although sometimes we feel completely alone his is always, always there. Although I have been a member my whole life I never fully knew it was true until age 14. We were studying the doctrine and covenants and my teacher challenged us to find out if Joseph Smith was really a Prophet. I went home and fasted any prayed to find the answer and I was reading in the book of Mormon and found. I had the most overwhelming feeling and calmness and love. I've never felt it that strong before. And I knew it was all true. Joseph Smith was a Prophet and the Book of Mormon was the true word of God! Many people ask me well how do you know? I have felt the Holy Ghosts gentle answers to my prayers. He is real. God answers our prayers and we can know for ourselves.

How I live my faith

I am very involved in church service and I try to be involved in community service as well. Growing up I did drives for the heart and stroke foundation, terry fox runs, 30 hour famine and whatever else came my way. I've had many amazing experiences in the church where I have got to help people who otherwise could not have done things on their own. One of my favorites is working at the local Gleeners where you help sort and chop vegetables which then get freeze dried and they make soup mix out of it and send it to third world countries. I've mowed lawns, raked leaves, babysat, even organised choir music! I've always been involved in church callings and activities since I was very young because my Mom Being the lovely lady she is always ended up getting asked to help with the food. The one I remember most was the youth activity for 1500 kids and he stressing over how she would find enough time! Being how the world is sometimes it's hard to live the way you want to. Even at work all my coworkers cuss and talk about drinking and things. But I know as I read my scriptures and find things that are good in my life it strengthens me and makes me more able to live the way I want to. Even if It means being alone. My most cherished experience is from when I was 18. This young mother in our ward hurt her back very badly. She had 3 very young boys and was completely bed rested. Me and several other ladies took shifts watching her boys, cleaning her house, and cooking dinner for the family. I went 2 or 3 afternoons a week after school. A year or so later I started going to another ward for church and I met her mother. She asked me If I was the one her daughter was always talking about and I said yes. She expressed to me the love and thanks she felt for me and my mother for the service that was given. I loved her sons and although I had given a lot of time it wasn't a burden to me and I didn't realise how much it had actually meant to this Mother who was in need of help.
