Hi I'm Jenny

I'm a wife, a teacher, a film music composer and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert to the Church. I joined in September 2009 after about 3 years of investigating! I studied a Masters in Music for Film and Television in Bristol University, England (a week after joining the Church ha!) I have always loved music and now work as a Music Teacher in local primary schools and compose music for films on the side. I am married to the most wonderful man in the world and live a blessed life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was anti Mormon for years!! I had read the anti mormon propaganda but I had not read the Book of Mormon. I grew up in Northern Ireland were there is a lot of contention between Catholics and Protestants. I had read the Christ was the prince of peace and yet these Churches and people fought against each other. For a long time I lost my faith in any form of religion. Then I heard about how Joseph Smith had been in a similar dilemma and had prayed to know which Church to join. He had a vision and learned that none of the Churches contained the 'fullness of the Gospel' and that in time the true Church that Jesus Christ had established on earth in his mortal ministry would be restored. While on a family holiday in Jordan, tracing the footsteps of Jesus Christ I read read the following verse in Matthew 21: "...all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." I knew then that Joseph Smith had believed he would receive an answer to his heart felt prayer and therefore knew that he was a Prophet. Upon the return of my family holiday, I began to read the Book of Mormon and found myself in tears one day, over my frustration in knowing whether or not the Book was truly the word of God and so with a broken heart and a contrite spirit I prayed, believing I would receive an answer to my question on the authenticity of this Book. I had such a strong spiritual witness that day that I got baptised and joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and have never looked back. I know this Church is Jesus Christ's restored Church for so many reasons but just as Christ said in John 10:10 "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." I know that it is true and that because of Jesus Christ I live an abundantly happy and blessed life.

How I live my faith

Jesus Christ said "Learn of me, and listen to my words; walk in the meekness of my Spirit, and you shall have peace in me." I know this promise to be true and consequently I love to learn! I love to study my scriptures every day, watch Mormon Messages while I cook and listen to inspiring and uplifting Church Talks on my ipod when I travel in the car or go shopping for groceries or dresses :) (I love shopping for dresses!) Through prayer and studying the Gospel of Jesus Christ I am learning how to become more like Him, to reach my full potential and become the happiest and most content and fulfilled person that I can possibly become for that is our loving Father in Heaven's hope and plan for all of us!
