Hi I'm Jenna

I was born in Virginia, but I'm in Utah now! I have been called to serve in the New Mexico, Albuquerque mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors! I enjoy hiking and going on bike rides with my older sister. I love to bake treats and quote Disney movies. I sometimes feel like I was born in the wrong generation because my favorite singers are Dean Martin and Nat King Cole. I am the youngest of four kids and my family is everything to me. I am planning on going to school to become a nurse.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family and was raised according to the standards of the LDS faith. As a child, I definitely just went through the motions (go to church, say your prayers, etc.) and it wasn't until a few years ago that I actually gained a testimony of my very own, so I guess you could say I'm a convert. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is centered around Jesus Christ and we believe that He is our Savior and Redeemer. We believe that through His love and selfless sacrifice of unimaginable pain, we are able to repent and be the very best version of ourselves and be clean of our faults and mistakes. He suffered the sins of each person that has ever and will yet live on the Earth. I know that He knows me and all of my hardships, downfalls, and weaknesses. He knows the pain and sorrow that I have gone through and will go through. He was and is a perfect example of undying and everlasting love. I am eternally grateful for Him and I try every single day to show that gratitude by living the way He would want me to. We also believe the Book of Mormon to be another testament of Jesus Christ given through the mouths and writings of ancient prophets who inhabited the American continent. We are in no way trying to discredit or replace the Bible because we study the Bible just the same as we do the Book of Mormon. We believe that Joseph Smith was instructed by God and His messengers to translate these writings through the power of God. It may sound fantastical but I know that this book is the word of God because I have sincerely prayed and asked about its truthfulness and no man-made book could re-create the feeling of overwhelming peace and truth that was manifested to me after doing so. I am a Mormon because this gospel gives me hope and peace of mind in a world full of chaos and confusion. I am a Mormon because of the countless times I have been blessed throughout my life. I am a Mormon because of the love I have for God and my Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my life the way Jesus Christ would want me to. Love others, be kind, be honest to my fellow men and give service to those who need it. I have been called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for the next 18 months and I am incredibly excited!
