Hi I'm Jennalee

I love to play board games, I love to sing at the top of my lungs in the car, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a single adult who loves life! I enjoy being with my family and best friend! I am the oldest of four kids, but I have settled into the position of shortest in the family. I work with kids with disabilities and love helping them learn and excel in social situations. I love being outside in the sun. I love going on vacations. I absolutely love to read. I enjoy learning. I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in music. I love to cook. My favorite season is fall because I love all the yummy smells. I love seeing movies in the movie theater. I love popcorn and I eat it almost every Sunday night. I love to play games. My favorites include: Clue, Uno Attack, Wackee Six, and Phase 10 dice. I served a mission in sunny northern California. I love gerbera daisies. I love to make cards while watching Pride and Prejudice.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found the most happiness by living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have purpose and direction in my life because of the teachings of the church. I know where I came from, why I am here and where I am going. My parents and grandparents and other ancestors are Mormons, but that is not the only reason I am. I had to come to know for myself that being a Mormon was right and what I should do. I have prayed to know the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and I have felt and I know that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is Christ's church on the earth. I have read the Book of Mormon and it has converted me to the gospel. It truly testifies of Christ and will bring anyone who reads it closer to Him. I know anyone can pray about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and know for themselves that this is Christ's church on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures and praying daily, attending church every Sunday, and attending the temple each week. These are the best ways I know how to live my faith and doing these things help me stay close to my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ. I also live my faith by contributing to my ward in any way I can. I have been asked to teach lessons to girls my age, play the piano for different meetings, and help visit those who are in need.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Mormon temples are used for learning and receiving sacred ordinances. My favorite part of the temple is the ordinance called a sealing, that binds families together not only for this life, but for eternity. I love attending the temple every week. I find great peace while I am in the temple. The temple is the house of the Lord and He can be felt there. As I attend the temple I receive answers to my prayers and I enjoy quiet time away from the outside world. Show more Show less
