Hi I'm Jennifer

I'm a wanna-be famous chef, singer and married to my best friend. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from Kutztown University in 2005 with a degree in music and chose to stay in the area... there's just something about the smell of cow manure, being surrounded by a million farms! I just became a mommy to my darling, baby girl and she's everything we've always prayed for. My husband and I grew deep in faith of God's love as we waited years to get pregnant with our daughter... we never lost hope! I am a blessed to be the Young Women's President of my ward at the moment.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I find great joy in this church. I chose to be baptized when I was 8 years old, despite the fact that my mother, a non-mormon, thought that it was too young. I didn't get a lot of support through my younger years and actually left my faith for many years. I lived without it and I wasn't happy. ...AT ALL! I tried everything to find true peace and joy but none of it worked. It was only through returning to my faith and the things that I'd been taught my entire childhood and teenage years that I found what true peace and happiness are. I find joy in my family. I find joy in being a wife and mother. I find joy in being sealed to my husband as his eternal companion, to live with him and my children forever. I am a Mormon because I believe that families are and should be together forever. There is no greater happiness to be found than in families. I am a Mormon because it answers all the questions that I couldn't find answers for.

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ is the pinnacle of all humanity. He lived a perfect, sinless life and is it toward him that we should direct our focus of human aspirations. I try to think about Christ in all situations of life. I hold doors for people. I smile at strangers. I say hello to those that I walk by on the street. Despite the discouragement of my husband, a long-time New Yorker, I talk to people on the subway! I try to go out of my way to extend niceness to all those I meet because there's just not enough of that in the world. Though the journey is still a LONG way in progress, I strive each day to become just a little bit bitter than I was the day, week, month or year before.
