Hi I'm Jen

I am a happy wife to an amazing husband,the proud mama of three wonderful children and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a wife to an amazing husband and mother to the three best children I could ever ask for. I stay home with my children and I think that is the most important place in the world that I could be right now, both for my family and me. After a lot of hard work, I graduated from BYU in 2010 with a degree and Home and Family Studies and hope to one day to return to school once my children are older. I enjoy creating, whether it is making crafts or decorating a room, if I had to pick a career other than being a mom, I would be an architect...who knows, maybe one day I will be. I also enjoy reading and hope to one day write my own book. My family is the most important thing in the world to me and being with them is when I am the happiest!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a home with parents (one a lifelong member and one a convert) that were already members of the Church so I grew up learning the principles and teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I was taught by both parents and church leaders, I took the time to learn for myself the truthfulness of this Gospel and to gain my own testimony. As I experienced different events, both big and small, in my life, my testimony of the gospel grew as I saw God's hand in my life and listened to the whispering of the Holy Ghost. I am a Mormon because I have received a personal witness that this Gospel is the only true church on this Earth. I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and the plan of eternal life that was presented to us before we came to this Earth. I am a Mormon because nowhere else in the world can you have an instant family anywhere you go or someone that is always there for you. I am a Mormon because I know how important the family is and nowhere else can a family be better guided and protected. I know that this church is THE church and without it we can not reach the potential of who we CAN be! I know that through the power of the Priesthood, miracles happen. I know that God knows each one of us individually and loves us and wants us to return to his presence one day and to do that we must follow His teachings and examples. I know that he is always watching over us and knows what we are experiencing and is always there to help us. Without this knowledge, I would not be who I am today, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith daily in how I interact with others and how I prepare myself for the day. I take personal time and devote it to the Lord, by studying His words in the scriptures and Church publications as well as in prayer. I sacrifice my worldly wants daily to focus on the eternal perspective of my family and helping my children learn the things they need to know to gain their own testimony and to live worthily for eternal life. I strive to live in a way that I would want my children to learn from, just as Jesus Christ did for us. Within our ward, I serve in the Primary Presidency where we oversee the teaching of all children 18 months to 12 years old. I hold the children of the Church near to my heart. They have such strong spirits and have been saved for these last days when times would be harder because they are so smart and in tune with the Spirit. Children are our future leaders and it is so important that they be taught the correct principles and teachings of the gospel from a very young age so that they will have their own testimonies and live righteously. I am blessed to teach many children, organize activities and write our yearly Primary Program that we present in church each fall. I am also blessed to learn from these children and grow relationships with them. I am also a visiting teacher. We are blessed in our church to have assignments of a few women to visit in their homes each month with a spiritual message and check on their spiritual and temporal well being. In the process we gain lifelong friends, are provided with opportunities to serve others, and strength our testimonies. These are a few of the ways the I live my Faith!
