Hi I'm Jennifer

I love Harry Potter. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Paleontology and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of five children. I love hiking, camping, fishing, bird watching, anything outside really! Yellowstone National Park is one of my favorite places to visit especially with it being so close to me. I'm an avid writer, I love reading and even do some musical arrangements. I play violin, though I could do with more practice time set aside. I am the complete geek package: I love fantasy and non-fiction such as Harry Potter and Star Trek and yes, I play Dungeons and Dragons. I have a degree in paleontology aka dinosaurs. Dinosaurs have been my favorite thing since before I can even remember. I love everything dinosaur, except for Barney. Barney's lame. Yes, I saw Jurassic Park in 3-d. Yes, I saw both Jurassic World and The Good Dinosaur the first week they were in theaters. Yes, I may have too many plastic and stuffed dinosaurs.

Why I am a Mormon

I have never known another church. I was raised as a Mormon and while I have visited other churches I have never felt the Spirit as strongly as I do in and LDS church. The simple truths taught in this church are incredibly powerful and increase my faith every week. The sacrament is a weekly reminder to me that Jesus has made it possible for me to try and try again until I get it right. The temple is one my favorite places and a place like none other. No other church has the fullness of the gospel and I know that Joseph Smith restored it to the earth. I know that Thomas S. Monson holds all the priesthood keys and was called by God to lead this church. I know that my Savior lives and loves me and knows me.

How I live my faith

I am a Gospel Priciples teacher in my ward. I teach the very basics of my religion to converts, investigators and those preparing to go on a mission. I also help frequently with our booth at the Montana State University Catapalooza every year telling all the new freshman where they can find us and when we meet. I have opportunities all the time to share little things about my faith at work, in my volunteering at the Museum of the Rockies, and simply hanging out with my friends and I try to use those moments to teach those around me.
