Hi I'm Jenilee

Born and raised in Utah. I'll soon be serving a mission. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a 19 year old girl preparing to serve an LDS mission in Kobe, Japan! I am currently a Teacher Aide at an elementary school and I absolutely love being around kids! I sing, dance and play the guitar in my spare time. I love musicals! I have seen some Broadway musicals and loved them! I am a real family girl. The most important thing to me is my Family. I would be no where if I didn't have them. They lift me up when I'm down and have taught me so much including how to be a good person. I love the summer time and anything yellow and sunny! I am a very happy girl and I delight in the little things! I love romance and cute occasions! I have an awesome boyfriend who I someday hope to marry in the Temple!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be close to my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. They are my rock and my salvation. I am a Mormon because I know that this is the true and living gospel of Christ! I would never ever deny that either. My Heavenly Father knows who I am and loves me. I return that love by serving in his Gospel and help bring his other children back to him. I feel his Spirit each and every day through the Holy Ghost who helps keep me safe and guides and directs me. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy! Serving others and being close to my Heavenly Father makes me so happy each and every day. I am a Mormon and you should be too! It would be the best decision you would ever make. I can promise you that. I have a strong testimony of this gospel and that is why I, Jenilee, am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday in my home ward and I love it! It is such a warm and loving place to be. I go to church activities with my mom and visit with the other women in the ward. I try to live my faith everyday at the elementary school I work at by shining my light to those around me. I want them to feel comfortable and happy around me and I want them to see how the Gospel of Jesus Christ has made me the happy girl I am today. This Gospel isn't just about "believe and you'll be saved". We have to work for it to get to our Father in Heaven again some day. But I can tell you now that there is no greater work! Striving to live the Gospel Principles and Commandments has made me the happiest, and most grateful girl out there. I live my Faith each day by following the commandments, going to church every Sunday, listening to the Prophet, and pushing myself to be better as each day passes.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes we are Christians 100%! This church and gospel is centered around Jesus Christ. He is our Savior and our Redeemer and we can not return to Heavenly Father without him. Understand that we are Christians just by the name of our Church. "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints". I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I know that he has done so much for me. He died for me and atoned for my sins. He has felt every pain and sorrow I have ever felt and he is always there for me when I need him most. Show more Show less
