Hi I'm Jenna

I'm a mother of one little boy, I love to dance and paint. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Henderson area of Las Vegas, went away to college where I danced a lot and got a degree in Social Work. After college, my husband and I moved back to Las Vegas for work. I'm a wife and mother of one little boy, and I spend most of my days playing trucks and dinosaurs. I love to dance, paint, bake, read, and interior design.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I have prayed about the church throughout my life, and because of the answers I've gotten, I know that the gospel is true. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and all of His children, and I want the gospel to be apart of my family. I want my son to know all about his Heavenly Father and to know how loved he is. I want him to have the strength and values that come with living a good life and to be able to have peace and happiness in this life.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by looking for others with needs and helping them. I try to visit a couple of the women in our congregation on a regular basis so that they know someone is thinking about them. I feel blessed when they do the same for me. I also teach the toddlers in the congregation during church (while their parents attend other classes). We do a lot of playing, and even some snacking, but we try to teach them a little bit each week about Jesus Christ, and how much he loves them.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is something that you gain (usually) slowly over time. It's a compilation of all the small things you've learned by studying scriptures, listening to the prophet and apostles, and especially by praying. A testimony is knowledge that something is real and true. Everyone's testimonies are different. For example, I know that Heavenly Father (or God) is real and that he hears me when I pray. I know this because I've prayed many times and felt His love for me. I've had prayers answered and felt directed by Him in decisions I've had to make. These and many other small instances have helped me to know that He's there and loves each of us. Show more Show less
