Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm an Elementary Education student. I like to sing even though I'm always off tune. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have one sister, a daughter, and 2 wonderful parents.I love to teach and spending time with my daughter. I enjoy playing sports. My favorite sports are basketball, baseball, and soccer. When I watch games on TV, I am so passionate that I yell at the TV if we are loosing and have actually cried when my team has won championships . I always refer to myself as part of my favorite professional team (i.e. We need better defense. We picked up new players this season.)I like to watch movies. I sing and dance around my house just because I can. I love shopping and getting great deals. In the summers I go out as little as possible during the day since Vegas gets super hot. I like to dance. My daughter loves the Disney Princesses and will only wear an outfit if its related somehow to being a princess. I love to read. I am always reading a book. I like to organize. I am always re-organizing my closet and the garage. I am a bit of a clean freak. I like to have things in their place and when I'm bored, I clean. I am a college student and I am studying Elementary Education at UNLV. I will be graduating soon and I can't wait to have my own classroom.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I choose to be a member and to raise my daughter with this gospel is because I strongly believe that Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father love us. I believe in being able to talk to our Heavenly Father through prayer and I know he will always answer our prayers. I know that the Book of Mormon was written by prophets and it testifies of Jesus Christ. I know that the Young Women's program in our church teaches us to live our life righteously and to gain our own testimony of the gospel. I know that the teachings at church help me be a better person and to be a better citizen in this country. I know that even when we have fallen and hit rock bottom, His love for us is so great that we can repent and be forgiven for our sins. Even when the day seems so bad I can turn to my scriptures for guidance and comfort and going to church every Sunday gives me happiness. What I learn every Sunday reassures me that this is the place to be and I love the feelings I get when I'm there.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping whom ever I can. In school I volunteer to tutor when I don't have classes. I help teachers in my neighborhood school in anything that I can. In church there is often opportunities and activities for us to help our community by making blankets and donating them to hospitals. We have also made scarfs and donated them to elderly homes. Day by day I try my hardest to live to the Lords commandments and I know that when I do he blesses me and I am more happy. Im in no way perfect but I do learn from my slips and also by my accomplishments.
