Hi I'm Jenny Marie Bezzant

I'm a single mother of 7, I co- founded Utah's Lyme Disease Alliance, I am Ms. Utah Spirit 2012, and I'm a mormon

About Me

Wow, about me.. I live for and love my children more than anything. I haven't always felt this way. I am much more naturally inclined in the business/ medical world. My life experiences have ingrained a deep appreciation for motherhood in me. I studied to be a midwife, doula, and massage therapist. I currently work at BYU for the Men's track team, as their bio electric massage therapist. I love my job! After having 5 beautiful children of my own, I was Utah's first legal surrogate in 2005, giving birth to twins for my sister in law. I adopted two children from underprivileged moms shortly thereafter. My youngest has special needs and is a ray of sunshine in our home. I have held the titles of Miss Teen of Utah 1996, Mrs. Utah 2010, now Ms. Utah Spirit 2012. My greatest honor though, was acheiving Mother of the year in 2011. Who could ask for more? I've learned that my work at home is priceless and changes 7 worlds everyday! My titles opened many doors to service. ."Mom" does that just as much or more!! I am also passionate about helping fellow Lyme Disease victims, with Utah's Lyme Disase Alliance we assist patients in receiving proper treatment, education, and support. My hobbies are singng, public speaking, writing, running, dirtbiking, tahitian dancing, hiking, playing in mountain streams, waterfalls, ponds, oceans and any water with my kiddos. In the winter we love to snuggle by the fire,& drink hot chocolate after sledding an snow ball fights:)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Utah and raised in the gospel. Having lived in many other states and been to other countries, I was exposed to all walks of life. I never felt sheltered from other beliefs. I had a father who loved the doctorine and spent many, many hours teaching me about the scriptures, where the gospel derived from and how it came to its fullness in our day. I feel that this knowledge gave me a basis to live by and a structure to find answers on my own in the future. My father passed away when I was 21. At that point in my life I felt a need to know that the things he taught were true. I fasted, prayed and attended the temple. The answers I received were clear and peaceful. There is a plan of salvation, The Savior lives, and we can all be together eternally through the gospel and living its precepts to the best of our abilities in this life. This knowledge is the only thing that up held my family, after we lost my brother just six short months from my father's death. The Savior held us then, My mother, an immigrant to this country, held strong to her faith and beliefs throuh these trials. She was able to raise her sons who ere only 10 and 11 at the time. They have both served full time missions and our family has always been provided for despite our loss. I follow my mother's example now. Remaining close to the gospel is the only life line I have trying to raise my children alone. I am not really alone. I have an entire community of support in the church, my family, and above all, the Savior holds my hand in the storms. He never is further than a whisper away. I can not imagine living without the light of the gospel, the peace in the Holy Ghost and God's love through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. He has already forgiven,and stands with open arms to hold all those who labor and are heavy laden.. He will give you rest.. That is why I believe. I have experienced the gospel, I know it is true.

How I live my faith

I have lived my faith in many various capacities. My favorite calling was teaching the 16-18 year olds. I taught for 4 years. I loved every one of them!! I feel a huge loyalty and desire to teach and help them find joy in this life. I lost my closest brother, Sam, to suicide at age 19. Since then I have felt a strong calling to teach the youth. I see everyone of them struggling with the similar hardships that Sam experienced, the same amazing futures, and so many of them just need a friend to show them a little love and hope. With my state titles I embrace every opportunity to speak to youth groups, girl's camps, boyscouts etc. I have always loved to sing. I encorporate gospel music in my firesides. Music is such a powerful tool to invite the spirit. I can sing to a heart in one minute what the mind won't comprehend in an hour. I am so grateful for this gift. I am currently at a crossroad in my life. I have recently moved to a wonderful area. My situation (single mother of 7) has made it difficult to serve as much as I would like. I am grateful for the opportunity I have to visit teach the sisters I do. I learn and gain stregnth from their life experiences. I am so grateful for their wisdom and often go home far more fed than what I feel I have shared. I serve on the activities comitee for the women in our area as well. It is a great opportunity to share ideas, relax, and do service as a group. Even though my hands are full, I feel that when I bear my testimony on fast Sunday, I am able to contribute. My faith grows daily through the ups and downs and twists and turns in this journey. I share when I feel moved by the spirit to do so. As I bear my testimony, pay my tithing, and do work in the temple, I feel Gods hand in my life. My burdens become bearable and my Joy more full. I attribute all good things to the mercy of God's Love. He asks so little in return. I only wish I could do more.
