Hi I'm Jenni Johnson

I was born and raised in the good o'l Orem, Utah. I work with disabled kids, and I love them dearly! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm the kind of person who loves to serve! I've worked with disabled adults and kids for the past 2 years, and it has changed my life! I love it so much! Its very challenging everyday but its so worth it! I just recently got home from Ecuador, helping out with kids and babies, in orphanages there! I also love to workout, especially run, and personal train people who want to get into shape. I'm a very motivational and determined person. I love helping people reach their goals, and I love to help motivate people to push themselves.

Why I am a Mormon

There was a time in my life where some pretty hard things happened. After these things had happened to me, I had lost all hope. I honestly did not want to move forward with my life. I felt that there was no way out of this darkness that surrounded me. There was no happiness in my eyes. I didn't see the point of moving forward with my life. You may think that this story is pretty dark, well the truth is, it was a pretty dark time in my life. My family thought they would lose me to this darkness, and the truth is, they almost did. One day, during this dark time in my life, I decided to pray. I didn't even know if there was any hope for me left. But my family believed there was, so I decided to find out for myself, if there was any hope of fighting this darkness that had over come me. As I knelt down and sincerely prayed to our Heavenly Father... I felt this warmth over come my body.. it was so powerful and so pure... a feeling that I hadn't felt before... I knew that I was feeling the power of the Holy Ghost, I don't know how I knew, but just knew.. I was feeling the love of the Savior... wrap around me like a warm blanket.. and I just cried and cried... because I knew in my heart what I was feeling... and for the first time in a long time.. I felt hope. I knew that Heavenly Father was aware of my needs.. he knew how much I had been hurting... and I just felt that no matter what I had gone through before, or what I had been feeling at that time, I was going to get through that dark time, with his help and the Savior's. Everyday after I had that experience, I pushed myself to read the book of Mormon. I desired in my heart to know more about what I had felt. I know without a doubt that the Savior carried me every day that I did not want to get up. I felt him many times during those unbearable days. I owe him everything. I am here today because of the love he has for me. I am everything I am because of him. This gospel is so true. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

With the job that I have, I'm serving people everyday. Its defiantly a challenge for me everyday but its so worth it. In essence, I've had to change my ways of thinking of how to do things that would be easy for me but may be challenging for others to do. Such as the kids that I work with. I've grown to love them even on the hardest days that I've had at work. Working with these wonderful kids, has helped me as an individual to be a lot more understanding of things, and I've gained so much patience as well. I have to have a lot of faith each day when I'm working with these kids. I have to have faith in them that they will progress in the things that I'm teaching them everyday. I have to have faith that they will trust me with whatever it is that we're working on. I have to have faith that even on the hardest of work, that I will make it through, because it is not an easy job to do. But I love it with all my heart.
