Hi I'm Jen

I am a mom of triplets, a triathlete, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 4 sons 5 and under. 3 of them are triplets. I balance my time caring for them and working with my husband running our small business. Being a mother to my boys is the hardest and most rewarding job I have ever had. I love to bake and cook. I enjoy home canning. My favorite thing to preserve is jam. (My raspberry-marionberry is the best). I love to read. (When I have time). I love spending time outdoors and enjoying the beautiful world God has created for us. I have been spending time researching my family history, and love feeling a greater sense of who I am and how it relates to the ancestors who came before me. I am a handy woman, and installed our dishwasher myself. I love learning how to do new things. I am passionate, outspoken, and a bit sassy to boot.

Why I am a Mormon

As a person raised as a Latter Day Saint, (Mormon) there comes a point when you have to develop your own testimony, and realize that being a Mormon is what you want for yourself, not just because you were raised in the faith. I spent several years following what my friends were doing, and not living the standards of the church. One day, I realized that I wasn't happy, and if I continued down the path that I was on, it would not lead me to where I wanted to be.

How I live my faith

I am who I am no matter who I am with or where I am at. To me, being a Mormon means that I am honest in my dealings with my fellow man. I don't eat food at the grocery store until I have paid for it. If I am given too much change from a clerk, I let them know, and give it back. I try to speak kindly to others, and look for the best in any person like Christ would. I dress modestly. I abstain from alcohol, tabacco and coffee, and do my best to take care of my physical body. I honor my marriage vows, and work as a partner with my husband to raise our family. We teach our boys about Jesus Christ. We sing hymns, read scriptures, and say prayers with our children daily to help them develop a personal relationship with the Lord.
