Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a Pianist/Composer, a Wife, and a Mom to the two cutest little boys on earth. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

By day I am a mom to two of the cutest little redheaded boys, and wife to an ultra-marathon runner/finance guru. By night I am a studio-bound composer with a concert pianist background who enters an entirely different world of creativity and exploration. I am so fortunate to have the best of both worlds. You might think it odd that someone who is a master mac 'n cheese-making-house-cleaning-diaper-changing-stroller pushing-mess-picker-upper, is also a film-scoring-get-all-dressed-up-for-the-red-carpet-music-composing-artistic-ivory-tickler. I won't say that it's easy, but I have the best support team on the planet: My family. Family is so important to me. And I have the best partner in life too - the greatest husband I could ever ask for, who is also the best dad for our boys. We work hard, and we play hard. When we're not working hard, you can usually find us at the beach on the weekends (we live on an island), swinging in the hammock in our backyard, watching my husband (a.k.a. dad) run a 100 mile race, making a mess in the kitchen with cookie dough, or all practicing the piano at the same time (4 on a bench is best).

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church by wonderful parents. I always knew from an early age that the things I was being taught were true. As I've gotten older, and started a family of my own I still have that conviction that I am where I am supposed to be, and doing what I'm supposed to be doing. However, being in a world where it's not always popular to be a dedicated church going person, I've asked myself "Why do I keep doing this?". The answers are simple: My knowledge of my Savior and my Heavenly Father give me comfort and rays of hope among dark times. When I am down, They lift me up. When I feel burdened by the state of our world, I feel hope for a brighter future. I feel good about myself and the way my husband and I are raising our children because of the teachings we've learned through being Mormon. There is a peace in our home that I know is there because of our testimonies in the Gospel. And knowing that my family and I will have each other for the rest of our lives and for eternity is not something that can be replaced by any other temporary gratification.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a committee member for our stake's activities. I am also a stake music specialist, which means I get to participate in the larger stake events when it comes to the music. In my own ward, I serve as a visiting teacher - where my VT partner and I get to visit three sisters within our ward each month. As a young mother, it is always neat to participate in the VT program because there is an instant support group within the Relief Society organization that I have never found elsewhere. I greatly value the wisdom from the women older than me, as well as enjoy the kinship of sisters who are going through the same things I am going through in my own life. And I only hope that I can be a mentor and an example for those young women who are just entering the organization. If I haven't already said it, I love Relief Society.
