Hi I'm Jenny

I grew up in Minnesota. I'm a mother and a wife. I'm a karaoke singer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies include reading, singing, spending time with my family, cooking and singing karaoke. I'm a mother of a little girl and find her to be the biggest blessing in my life. I also stay at home with her which is another great blessing. I love to help with parties, especially weddings.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 22 years old I married a man whose family were inactive members of the Church. We had moved to a new town and I so desperately wanted to find a church to attend. I had moved from a small town and was trying to find that "small town" feel in a bigger city church. I attended quite a few church services without success. I knew that my neighbors were LDS and they had become good friends of mine. So, one day I stopped by their house and asked if I could go to church with them the following week. I didn't need a ride but just wanted to know someone there when I arrived. They gladly accepted and told me where and when to meet them. My first church meetings were great! I came home with a load of books/dvds and an appointment with the missionaries. I took all the discussions at my neighbor's house as my husband didn't really want to be part of it. I was baptized after a month of discussions and truly haven't looked back. I had to sacrifice many things to continue to grow in the Gospel and my marriage of 4 years, was one of them. We just weren't going in the same direction in life and it was causing us each a lot of pain. I chose the Gospel because I knew it was the right thing and I had faith that Heavenly Father would provide for me. He did! He brought many good friends to support me and some are considered family members today. I began attending singles events in the Fall of 2008 and I met my eternal companion and we were sealed together in 2009. My life has taken many different paths to get to the place that I'm in today but I needed all of those "detours" to be truly grateful for the blessings that I have. I know that the members of the church I grew up in are good people and were wonderful examples to me but I truly know that I'm in Heavenly Father's church. I can so easily recognize his hand in my life now and I intend to do all that I can to share that with others.

How I live my faith

I've had many opportunities to teach the children at Church. I am so amazed at the knowledge of the savior that these sweet children have and their abilities to share that with others. I've learned so much from their faith. I was placed there to be their example but they truly were the example to me.
