Hi I'm Jennifer Hunsaker

I'm a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend and..... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My entire childhood was spent in the valleys of the Wasatch Mountains, where I was taught the values of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After college, my husband and I moved to San Diego, where we are currently raising our two young boys. I love to cook/bake with a passion, and consider myself a foodie at heart. I make homemade whole-wheat bread once a week, mostly because I love it so much more than store-bought bread. I love to be active: waterskiing, snowskiing, bicycling, exercising, and hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps me to understand my purpose on this Earth, and what I need to do to return to my Heavenly Father after this life. Everything around me tells me there is a God: the creation of this Earth, the universe and the human beings on the Earth. The intricacies found in nature and in the human body cannot happen as mere coincidence. I have been blessed by having prayers answered, protected in dangerous situations, and surrounded by loving people who share my same values.

How I live my faith

I have been able to work in many areas of the church, though some of my favorite activities were helping others (and myself) become self-reliant and prepared for emergencies and also in humanitarian projects that have blessed many people around the world. As a humanitarian specialist, we were able to make wallhangings for orphanages around the world, send school kits, hygiene kits, file-folder games, and picture books worldwide. Currently I am working with the young children (ages 3-12) to teach them the basics of the gospel, and allow them the opportunity to gain their own testimonies. I also work in the cub scouting program, and enjoy helping the boys gain skills important to adulthood.
