Hi I'm Jenna

I am a missionary, a daughter, and I want to teach high school someday. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have three brothers and three sisters and we grew up in California. Growing up things would sometimes get a little crazy, but I love them so much. As a family we learned to work hard and play hard. I currently have one niece, with a nephew on the way! My family is the most important thing in my life. I also love to play sports-soccer is probably my favorite. I also love to cook. When we were growing up my mom was constantly trying new recipes on us (some with more success than others) and now that is one of my favorite things to do. I am currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Philippines. I am very grateful for the opportunity that I have to teach the people, even if I can barely speak Tagalog.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I didn't always know it was true--but as I asked God through prayer, I felt good. I felt happy, and I felt a greater desire to be a good person. Then, the more I prayed about it, and the more I read my scriptures, the better I felt. I am a Mormon because I feel peace and happiness as I try to keep the commandments. I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to become more like my Savior, Jesus Christ every day. I know that I will never be perfect, but I know that if I try to be more like Jesus Christ then I can bless the lives of the people around me. I know that as I read the Book of Mormon and pray that the Lord will help me in my efforts.

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is a women's organization. In Relief Society meetings women share their testimonies and serve one another in meaningful ways. Women may join the Relief Society when they turn 18 (before 18 they generally gather with young women who are closer to their age and going through similar things). Show more Show less
