Hi I'm Jenny

I've travelled the world. I am a scientist, a wife, a mother, a friend and neighbor. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I value education. I love to learn. I find that I learn the most from people that differ from me or don't agree with me and it never scares me away. In fact I'm drawn to it. I seek out those who others may push aside, discount, or disregard. I love to: travel, ride roller coasters, dig my feet in the sand at the beach, sleep late on occasion, irish oatmeal with apples and canberries, practical jokes, giggling babies, watching my children grow and fulfill their potentials, my husband's dry sense of humor, serving others when they don't even know it, gardening, and trying to figure out the tiniest part of people that defines their reasons for the choices they make. In fact, I'm an analyst...I analyze for a living and it can sometimes overcome me personally. I like to figure out the "why's" of how things and people work. I remember looking through my father's medical books when I was seven years old and wondering how deformities or illnesses "got that way". Analysis has often come in handy in navigating my way through making difficult choices.

Why I am a Mormon

I've often asked myself this same question and I always come back to the same answer: I can never deny what I know is truth. No matter where I hear truth, I embrace it. There are bits and pieces of truth found in every church, synagogue, temple, or worship place. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints contains all of those truths and more. I love the challenge the Gospel of Jesus Christ offers me to live my faith daily.

How I live my faith

When I was a teenager, I used to think it was hard to ascribe to a faith that is so misunderstood or unpopular in the world's eyes. As I've matured, I see that people are just afraid of that which they don't understand and it motivates me to do better and help those aroung me see that I am not so different than they are. I teach the young women in the Church's youth program, I volunteer my time gardening in the city, I'm involved with the local high school's swim team ,I help organize programs for our youth to help them develop strong moral values and a love of the Savior. I work in a medical laboratory and I'm constantly reminded of the hand of the Lord in ALL things.
