Hi I'm Jenna Reeder

I'm a true Texan. I am a student at BYU-Idaho. I'm serving a LDS mission for 18 months in Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jenna. I was born and raised in the Dallas, Texas area. I'm a student at BYU-Idaho studying communication with a focus in marketing and advertising. I am currently serving a full-time mission in Salem, Oregon. I love college football and seafood. I am an outgoing person who loves to be spontaneous. I've been able to travel a lot. My favorite places I've been are the Cayman Islands, Hawaii and Nashville, TN. I love the beach, Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman Island is my favorite beach in the world. I also love the black sand beaches in Hawaii. I really like country music, Nashville, TN was great to explore and listen to my favorite music.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I enjoy the comfort this knowledge brings me. I love to listen to the prophets that are here on this earth to lead and guide us to Christ. I am a Mormon because I know it's the right way to live.

How I live my faith

I attend church each Sunday. As a student at BYU-Idaho, we meet in classrooms on campus for church. The setting is different, but the teachings and Spirit are the same. I have served as the Relief Society President in my student ward and several other areas. Home Evening here in college is fun. Instead of spending Monday night with my family, who live 1,500 miles away, I spend Home Evening with my student family. I love learning about the gospel by reading my scriptures daily and studying other doctrine. I try to set an example for others to follow. I am serving a fulltime mission in the Oregon Salem Mission for 18 months. I am happy to share my knowledge about the gospel of Jesus Christ with others.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jenna Reeder
Absolutely! The title of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe in God, The Eternal Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ and in The Holy Ghost. We believe Christ came to earth and died on the cross for our sins. We believe Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live in heaven, where we will one day return to live with them. Show more Show less
