Hi I'm Jennie

I'm a former teacher, a mother and a homemaker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and have taught kindergarten and pre-school. However, I have been a stay-at-home mom since the birth of the first of my four children. Being a mother, and now a first-time grandmother, is the most fulfilling role I could ever imagine in life. I keep involved in church, community and school service. I have lived in eight different states and in Italy. I can't remember a day that I was ever bored because I love to read, cook, sew, crochet, and plan family vacations (I enjoy it almost as much as the vacation itself!) There are so many things that I still want to do and learn; there are never enough hours in a day!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel makes complete sense to me. I first learned about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when my family stopped at the Salt Lake Temple Visitor’s Center while on a vacation when I was a teenager. The mural depicting the Plan of Salvation made such an impression on me that the image is as clear in my mind as if it was yesterday. After we returned home the missionaries taught our family and I was baptized. The gospel has kept me grounded and been my guide as I have made decisions throughout my life. I can't even imagine my life without the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

How I live my faith

My faith is a part of every moment of my life. I am who I am because of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My husband and children are an integral part of my being because I know my goal is to be with them even after this earth life ends. I have developed talents and skills because of the opportunities I have had to serve in the Church. We have relocated many times as a family. Our first priority was always to locate the local branch of the Church. We knew that in every city we lived in (even when we left our native country) that we would find a congregation with the same doctrines taught and the same sense of fellowship that would instantly make us feel at “home”.
