Hi I'm Elizabeth Jensen

I am grew up in Tucson, AZ. I am a mother of 3 and have lived all over the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom(though I am not home much!). I have 3 children. My oldest and youngest are girls and the middle is a boy. My kids participate in Cross Country, Soccer, Swimming and Basketball and music. I love to watch my children do their thing. I love to read and read most of what I can get my hands on. I love to cook but I hate to clean up! I play tennis and run. I wish I loved running more, but I am working on it. I guess I need to find a few friends that are at my running level and form a club. I love to travel. I have lived in many States across the US and I I have lived in Japan. I have been to Europe, Korea, Thailand and Indonesia. I would love to travel to Africa and through out Europe more. I love to garden too.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. I love it. I love that no matter where I move or travel there is a church for me to attend. It's like having access to instant friends. I love the peace the gospel gives me. I love that the church is a family oriented church, as family is very important to me. I have a true testimony of the foundations of the gospel. I believe in Joseph Smith and am grateful for that 14 year old boy who questioned religion. I am thankful for his faith. I am thankful for righteous family members who set a wonderful example for me. I am thankful for the opportunity I have to serve in my church. It allows me to grow and become a better individual. I love being a Mormon. It isn't always easy, but what I believe makes it worth it.

How I live my faith

I have served in many capacities in my church. I have worked in the library, the nursery, been a teacher in the children organization called Primary and well as served in the Primary presidency. I have been a teacher in the women's organization referred to as the Relief Society and served as the Relief Society President. All callings have given me the opportunity to learn and grow. I love the visiting teaching program. I love getting to know sisters in my ward that I might not have taken the opportunity to get to know on my own. I love the opportunities I have to work within my community and share my testimony with others. I love that in my church responsibilities are on a volunteer basis. I love how organized my church is. I love the programs that are offered to become a better person. Learning to be more self sufficient, teaching others to read are among the few. It always amazes me when my friends who are not members of my church learn of my "year supply" of food and emergency preparedness program. They are usually in awe that a church would promote such thing.
