Hi I'm Jenny

I grew up in Alabama as a daughter of modern-day pioneers. I'm a wife, mother and magazine editor. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm proud to say I grew up in Alabama. However, soon after graduating from the University of Alabama, I found myself married to a college football coach and lived nomadically for the next ten years. While living throughout the Southeast, I worked in magazine publishing and editing. Memphis, Tulsa, Louisville, Charlotte, Little Rock...somehow I made it back to where I started, this time with my own family. I live among some of the finest and kindest people on the planet, and I'm happy to call myself a Southern Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a second generation Mormon. My parents were the first baptized members in our small, Southern town. Although it took me some time to truly appreciate it, I found my faith to be the one real constant source of joy and peace. I know God lives, I know He loves me. Being a Mormon in the South is not always easy, but my testimony grows as I see the hand of God in my own life and in the life of my family.

How I live my faith

Knowing how hard life can be, I'm thankful to have a faithful husband by my side who is a constant strength and example to me and our children. While being wife to a football coach certainly keeps me busy, I recognize my calling as a mother is the most important job I'll ever enjoy. I look forward to fellowshipping with my church family, particularly on Sundays, and volunteer my time as the music chairman of our local LDS chapel. The Savior's love and majesty can be felt all around us, but it's up to us to recognize it. One of my favorite quotes is by Ralph Waldo Emerson: "What you do speaks so loud, I cannot hear what you say." No matter where you live, where you go to church or who you know, your actions have consequences and people take notice. So do what you say and say what you do!
