Hi I'm Jenny

I'm a dream chaser, tree-hugger, rain-loving piano player, squash-eating small town girl...and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Registered Nurse. I am a music lover. I have been singing since the day I was born. The piano helps me to express the things that I cannot say with words. I have a passion for life and all that is good and beautiful. I especially love the great outdoors. There is something purely divine about the smell of fresh pine, or the feeling you get when you're surrounded by mountains and rocks and trees. The view of the sun setting into the ocean from the beach is a bit of heaven on earth. I am a dreamer. I believe the sky is the limit to our potential. The gospel of Jesus Christ has taught me that I am a child of God and that my destiny is to become like He is. To me, that means I have within me the power to do incredible things. And so do you!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. It really is quite simple. This church, and the teachings of the restored gospel give my life so much meaning and direction. I would be completely lost with out it. I've read and studied the Book of Mormon again and again and I know that it comes from God. Because of my membership and activity in the church, I have come to a deep realization of who I really am and what my purpose in life is. I know God's plan for me. He has given us prophets and scripture and prayer and His Spirit to teach us everything we need to know so that we can prepare to return home to Him. Living the gospel is what allows me to feel true joy, peace and love in this life. Though I have many flaws and weaknesses, I know that through the atonement I can change and become the person He knows I can be.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by loving and serving those around me. Serving in church callings makes my life meaningful. It makes me happy. I cannot think of a happier time in my life than the 18 months I spent teaching the people of the Philippines about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Savior intended for us not only to learn of Him, but to keep His commandments and to love one another as He loves us. I pray every day that I can find opportunities to bless and lift the lives of others and that my life can become the very symbol of my faith in Christ. It may seem crazy to some people that Mormons don't smoke or even drink coffee. Some may say that there are too may "rules" but, instead of feeling restricted by the high standards of the church, I am grateful for them. I know that they come from a Heavenly Father who knows what is best for His children.
