Hi I'm Jenna O'Dell

My name is Jenna, I'm notoriously sarcastic, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the largest town in the United States: Gilbert, Arizona (it's still a town, not a city)! I'm sarcastic, competitive, and a bit of a movie nerd...Star Wars, anyone? While I attend college, I work in a physical therapy clinic. It's great because I meet interesting people daily, and I'm not confined to sitting in a desk.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS church. Did I have even a choice to be a Mormon? YES! I've struggled and worked for my testimony, and I choose everyday to be Mormon. It's in my personality to question everything; I'm a see-it-to-believe-it kind of gal. I have not seen angels, nor witnessed someone rise from the dead. I have felt God's Holy Spirit. I know God loves us and has a plan for us.

How I live my faith

I believe the best way to show others your beliefs is to live them. Words are fine, but actions define us. I do my best to see people the way God sees them, to love people unconditionally. It's not always peaches and roses, but happiness cannot coexist with contention. At church I teach the 5 year old children. They have the sweetest spirits. I can become closer to Christ by spending time with them every week.
