Hi I'm Jenny

I grew up on a farm. I studied education. I teach children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am thankful to be the wife of a fun-loving man who helps me see the lighter side of life. I am the mother of three active little boys who keep me very occupied, but very happy, too. I am a preschool teacher and find I am most at ease with "little people." I am passionate about hiking, United States history, and simplifying my life – though I have yet to make great progress in that area!

Why I am a Mormon

I've made the choice to be a Mormon primarily because of two reasons. First, I've studied the gospel of Jesus Christ and doctrines of the Church for many years. Those doctrines and teachings resonate well with my understanding and my soul. Secondly, I have lived the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have put them to the test in my own life and found that they really are the way to a hope-filled, happy life and a peaceful heart. In a nut shell, through study and action the Spirit has witnessed to me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is truly God's plan on Earth for His children.

How I live my faith

There are several outward things I do to live my beliefs –things the Lord has asked us to do. For example, I pray daily. I study the scriptures on a daily basis, too. I try to be helpful when I hear of someone in need and I volunteer time to serve in my local congregation. I know these things are important, however, I believe another equally important evidence of living my faith is the change I experience inside. When I choose to live my faith I feel an overall sense of peace and hope that I couldn't muster on my own. I feel greater happiness even when I'm going through a discouraging experience. I take courage, even when I hear the news and feel disturbed or afraid at circumstances in my country and in the world. I know God, our Father, lives. I know Jesus is my Savior and They are in charge. I know they love me and my family. There will be an end to strife and suffering. In the mean time, the Lord will help me and my family cope with struggles and find a lot of joy in this journey of life. I know these feelings are a great benefit of living my faith. I wouldn't want to be without it. I am grateful each day for it.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes! We love the Bible. We teach it at church and in our homes. We study it to solve problems and answer questions. Show more Show less
