Hi I'm Jeni

I grew up in a small town. I made it out on my own to the big city to play volleyball where I met my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently was married in the temple about a month ago to the best guy in the world. The marriage life is great so far and it is a fun begining. I'm working at an insurance office, coaching volleyball, and trying to finish my degree. My life is definately busy but I'm loving it.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me in the faith and I was a very good obedient child. As a kid you basically just do what you told but for me it was a little different than that. I had an amazing sunday school teacher when I was in primary who challenged me to read the Book of Mormon and to then ask God if it was true. It was my first time I actually tried to read it all by myself at the age of 7. So later that Sunday evening I found my little book bag with my scriptures and started with 1st Nephi. I wasn't the best reader and I guarentee that I didn't understand half of the words I was reading. But what I couldn't deny was the feeling that I got when I read it. It was like something I've never felt. A peace that came over me to let me know I was doing what I was supposed to. After reading the first chapter I decided to pray and ask the Lord if what I had read that night was true. The answer didn't come right away like a lightning bolt. It was a subtle awareness that I've been blessed to know my whole life that it was indeed true. And it was one of the happiest feelings that I've ever known.

How I live my faith

Me and my husband are new to the ward. And everyone has been so welcoming. Thankfully we are in the ward that my husband's parents are from so most people know who we are already. Only problem is, we have no idea who they are! I haven't recieved a calling in the ward yet, but am hoping to get one soon. In my last ward (a single's ward) I was a visiting teaching supervisor and that was a calling I really enjoyed. Visiting teaching is a great way for the women in the ward to get to know eachother and help eachother out.
