Hi I'm Jennie Jennae

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jennie and I am currently a grad student in Theatre Education and working full time in higher education administration. I have a passion for education reform and refocusing education on the needs of the child. I am a young single woman hoping to pursue a PhD in the near future and to teach at a university level. I love traveling, reading, and acting. I received a BFA in Acting and though I have put that aside for now, I retain a huge amount of respect for the art and those involved.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by very wonderful and Christian parents. They taught me about my Savior and about His love and how I could experience redemption from my sins through the Atonement. They invited me to pray and to learn for myself whether or not what I taught was true. They taught me the importance of learning to stand on my own two feet with spiritual knowledge. My parents are also members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They helped me immensely and are to be credited with a lot that I learned growing up. That being said, it was through the Spirit, which came to me in a warm and comforting feeling that I felt when I read the Book of Mormon, prayed, or attended church that has kept me going in the church.

How I live my faith

Every day has new challenges that faces each one of us. Since I know every person is a child of God, unique and special, I strive to find ways to bring everyone I come in contact with a little bit more sunshine in their lives. I take the time to address everyone that talks to me, whether it be a man on the corner asking for money, a telemarketer, a classmate, or a friend. I am also the music coordinator for my ward (what we call our local church group). I make sure that we have hymns for everyone to sing on Sunday, special musical numbers (solos, ensembles, and instrumental), and a choir. I love what I do at church and love working with the people around me. I also have another member of our congregation that I go with to visit a few girls in our ward. We call this visiting teaching. It is important that everyone recognize that they are important to us. As a child of God, I look at them as my sisters and want them to know that they are never alone.
