Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in California, but left to attend college at Arizona State University. I decided I loved the desert so much that I would stay and put my teaching certificate to good use. I taught for 4 years before having my first baby. I now stay home with my four children and could not be happier. My husband works in the construction/engineering field and just completed his degree in Civil Engineering. So proud of him! I love to spend time with my family, vacation, date nights, eating out, and shopping. I hope to someday go back to teaching when all my kids have grown because I truly do miss it. For now, I am enjoying life raising young children, doing laundry, and spending time with my husband as much as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a mormon and have known no different. That doesn't mean that it has always been easy. I attended a small private school in California for Kindergarten through twelfth grade and I was amongst 3 mormons in the entire school. I made a deliberate decision from a very young age that I was going to stay true to my faith and stay strong to pressures around me. I tried to surround myself with people that shared my same faith. I attended as many church functions as I could. Overall, I was happy. I was living a life that was clean and with direction. Being a mormon is who I am am. I am teaching my children that living the gospel is the only way to be happy. Developing a relationship with Christ is the only way to return to Him. I am a mormon because it makes me happy and it makes life easy. No more pressures from friends, just support and love from those around me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to exude happiness and faith. I try to serve those around me and make them feel special and loved. I try and care for my family in a way that shows my love for them as well as the gospel. I try and pray and lean on my Heavenly Father at times of struggle. I have small children, so for now, many of the church centered activities are just developing habits. My children may not be very quiet at church or during family night, but I want them to know that it is important and should be a habit. I live my faith by following the commandments and doing everything I can to become closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
