Hi I'm Jennifer

I was born in Venezuela to American parents. I came to California when I was three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife, mother and grandmother. I love spending time with my family. I enjoy sports and being active. I play USTA at the 4.0 level and love riding my Kawasaki Versys.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was about 17 yrs old I began to think about what life would be like after high school. I hoped that there would be a happy future for me, that I would someday marry and have a family of my own. At the time however many of my friends' parents were getting divorces and my own parents seemed unhappy. Then a young Mormon family moved into the house next door. They were so happy. My older brother began working for the father of the family next door. It was very soon after that when my brother joined the church. My brother and I were very close. He would come home from church each Sunday wanting to share what he had learned. It became very apparent to me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was special. My brother loved me and he wanted me to find the happiness that he had found. I agreed to have the missioniaries come and teach me. I believed ever word that they had to share. When I prayed to discover for myself if what the missioniaries were teaching me was true, I had a confirmation from the Holy Ghost that "Yes" it was all true. My heart lept with joy. The spirit told me that I would be happy. Today I celebrate my 32nd wedding anniversary. I have two wonderful children and four beautiful grandchildren. I have been blessed, my life is happy and fulfilling. My hopes and dreams from so long ago have come to pass.

How I live my faith

Just before moving to Texas from California I served in the women's organization in my ward. I enjoyed the challenge of teaching the Sunday lesson every few months, getting to know all the sister's names and their situations. I enjoyed taking them meals, giving them rides or serving however I was needed.
