Hi I'm Jennifer Neil

I grew up in Nevada. Im one of seven children, and I love being a part of a big family. I love the outdoors. And I am a mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy taking pictures and scrapbooking. I love the spirit and light that children bring to life, so I am currently majoring in early childhood education. I love camping. I am a big music junkie; listening to and singing! I love my family, their examples have helped shaped me into the person that I am today. The atonement and the promise that families can be eternal gives me the hope that allows me to strive to live happily each and every day. I am currently serving a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love people and am excited to be of service and help bring people to the knowledge and light of the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a mormon family, but that is not why I practice this religion now. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed about this church, and have recieved a witness for myself that this is the true church. As I read the scriptures and study this gospel, I am filled with a love and a light in my life. I understand why I am here and where I am going after this life. I know that this church is true and that God loves each of us and has a plan for each of our lives. I know that if we will continuously turn to him in prayer he will guide and direct out lives, and through that guidance we will recieve blessings and a greater happiness than we have ever felt. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, that he died for me, and that he was ressurected. I know Christ is my Savior and that He lives. I know that He knows me and that he loves me unconditionally. I know that this is the true church, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he translated the Book of Mormon. I know that we are led by a true prophet today that has been called to guide and direct us. I know that through this gospel, families can be together forever. I know that this earthly death is not the end, and that we will be reunited with our Heavenly Father and our loved ones again someday.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I served as a teacher to the 5-6 year olds. I enjoy teaching them about the scriptures and the life of Jesus. They are so full of light and innocence and I enjoy feeling of their spirit. I also enjoy doing my visiting teaching, which allows me to visit a few of the women in my ward each month and see how they are doing and if I can help them in any way. Right now I am living my faith by serving a full time mission in the Great Tennessee Knoxville Mission! Every day I try to find people to serve and to teach about this gospel. It has brought me so much happiness and peace that I want to share it with everyone!
