Hi I'm Jeni

I'm all about family. I'm a wife. I'm a mom. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

"Well, my OFFICIAL title is Queen of the Universe. You get that position by first, getting your MRS degree, then you need a masters in MOM and whilst I'm running the universe, I'll hopefully be able to get my PhD in G-MA." This is a quote from a friend of mine that fits me "to a tee", and so I share it here with all of you. I have a Bachelor of Science in Youth Leadership and have worked with city Parks and Recreation departments, Mesa Public Schools, the YMCA, and the Boy Scouts of America. Education is important to me as well as what a person does with the education they receive. I've always felt kids are important and enjoyed working with them. I met my husband 5 1/2 months before I married him and we've been living happily ever after for 11 years - not always easy, but overall happy. I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks to my sweetheart, I am lucky enough to be a stay-at-home-Mom. I love being with my six kids, turning stuff others would throw out into beautiful and useful things, and making others smile. My main goal in life is to raise my children to be happy, healthy adults and support my husband in all good things. I like to laugh, read, make tasty treats, hike, play in the water, explore new cities, shop, craft, take pictures, watch a good movie, travel, play with hairstyles (mine), visit Disneyland, and some other stuff, too.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, the easy answer is that I was raised in the church and just never left. But there's more to it than that. Every time I've had a question - a real, soul-searching, self-defining kind of question - I find the answer through the teachings of the church. I know I have a Father in Heaven who knows and loves me personally. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. He atoned for my sins, he died that I might live again, and through him my family can be together for all eternity. I am grateful for this knowledge and for my membership in His church.

How I live my faith

Within the church, I help plan and carry out a variety of activities for the ladies of the church (and anyone else who wants to come - we love visitors). In the past, I've had the opportunity to teach little children as well as young adults. Throughout my daily life, I live my faith by reading both from the Bible and the Book of Mormon with my family, praying daily, listening for the prompting of the "still, small voice" of the Holy Ghost, and trying to follow Christ's example. I am far from perfect, but I hope I am making progress in the right direction every day.
