Hi I'm Jenn

I grew up in San Diego, I married a Texan, I'm a mom 3 girls, I used play Rugby, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I moved to Texas after graduating from UVSC with a Bachelor's degree in Business Management. I worked full time for a general contractor, and played Rugby for 4 years. I met my husband in a chat room one weekend, and met him in person that week. We've been married several years now and have 3 beautiful daughters. I camp. I cook. I bake (too often). I enjoy home remodeling. I'm NOT a morning person. I serve in my church. I like driving pick-up trucks.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up I went to church simply because my parents made me. This church though isn't one you would continue to attend on a casual basis. The Lord's church requires a lot of its members. When I was a teenager, I attended another church's youth retreat. While I had a good time, and though my friends exerted lots of effort trying to convince me to join their church, I left with a stronger faith in Jesus Christ and knowledge that the church I belonged to, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the true church. I knew that Joseph Smith truly was a prophet and knew for the first time that his being the prophet of the restoration of the fullness of the gospel to the earth was more than just a story. When I went away to college and had true freedom to choose for myself to attend or not attend church, I always had a desire and a yearning to go. By living the commandments and following the teachings of the prophets, I had a life full of joy and happiness - true happiness that can only be found when you are at peace with your maker.

How I live my faith

I am a member of the largest women's organization in the world (the Relief Society). One of the things we do is assign women to visit one another on a monthly basis. This is to help build friendships, care for one another, teach the gospel, and minister to every woman's individual needs. I serve in this organization this by making sure each sister receives these visits. I also support my husband in his church service by being the primary parent at home with our children so that he is free to serve as needed.
