Hi I'm Jennie

I'm a stay-at-home mom. I love to read and hang out with my husband and kids. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife to my husband and a mother to my children. My life is full of family, soccer, helping with homework, cleaning, cooking, driving, problem solving, gardening, reading and occasionally exercising. It is a noisy, messy and busy life, but it's what I've always wanted. I sometimes reflect back on my carefree college days when I only had one person to take care of, myself. I took interesting classes on things like Motivation or Neurology , traveled to far away places like Israel and England, and ran up and down stairs by choice. But, no matter how much fun I had and how many things I filled my life with, it was so empty compared with what I have now. I am filled by my love for my husband and my children, and God's love for me. And though sometimes I feel like I can't think for all the noise, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Why I am a Mormon

My husband and I are high school sweethearts. Well, more like good friends turned sweethearts, which is how I would've planned it if I had been that perceptive as a teenager. Because we were both faithful and obedient as youth and young adults, we were able to be married in the temple for time and all eternity. This makes us a forever family. No matter what life throws our way, we know that as long as we try our best to follow God's ways, we can be together forever. This makes all the hard times and troubles easier to bear, and all the moments of joy and happiness that much sweeter. This is why I am a Mormon. So that me and my family can be together forever with our loving Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

In my church I get to work with the young women who are 12 and 13 years old. I get to teach them lessons almost every Sunday, but in truth they are teaching me as much as I am teaching them. We share thoughts and ideas of how we can be better friends, neighbors, siblings, students and members of the community. Recently we've talked a lot about how we can stand up for what we believe, be good examples, and reach out and lift those who may need help. They are good, strong, kind girls who will make a difference in the world, and I feel blessed to be able to interact with them each week.
