Hi I'm Jenny

I'm from Utah. I am the oldest of 9 kids. I love children. I love to play soccer. I speak Spanish. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 9 kids. I absolutely love being with my family. My mother is one of ten children, and my father is one of three. I love being around children of all ages. I taught 18 month year old toddlers at a Montessori school for 6 months. My desire is to be an Elementary Teacher, and influence the lives of many people for the better. I've attended BYU-Idaho. I love to learn! I love to sing, play the piano, watch plays and musicals. I love to run and play sports, especially soccer. I will be serving a full time mission in Spain, where my father was born and raised.

Why I am a Mormon

Despite the fact that I was born and raised into the LDS religion, I have gained a testimony for myself that I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on the earth today. I have read the Book of Mormon, and prayed to know if it is true. Through my desire and my faith in God that he would hear and answer my prayer, he testified to me that it IS true! Because I know that the Book of Mormon is true I know, without a doubt, that Joseph Smith was called of God to be a prophet. He restored the Gospel on the earth today. I also know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. He came to the earth in the humblest of circumstances. He came to show us the way we must live our lives. He came to give us the ultimate gift that God has to offer us. That gift is Eternal Life! Christ atoned for all of our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and then died on the cross at Calvary. He was resurrected three days later and lived again. Through his atoning sacrifice we all will be resurrected just as he was. We will live with our families for all eternity. I know that this is true and it gives me so much joy! I am a Mormon because I love my Father in Heaven and my brother, Jesus Christ. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and nothing will cause me to defy testimony that it is true. I say all of these things with complete certainty in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I go to church with my family. We all participate in church callings. My father is the patriarch of my family. He is a Sunday School Teacher. My mother is the music director for the children in Primary. And I was recently an activities coordinator for the women in my singles ward while I was attending college. I also participated in the Young Women's program where I had the opportunity to be a leader for the youth. In High School I was a leader on the Seminary Council. Just as I mentioned earlier, I will be serving a full-time mission in Spain. During this time I will devote my life to serve the Lord and my brothers and sisters in Spain. I will be sharing the Gospel to all of those who will listen and inviting them to come unto Christ.
