Hi I'm Jenny

I love to read. I love to see the world. I love to play the piano. I love to spend time with friends and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mother to 3 kids. Before having kids I was able to complete about half of my college degree, so I'm looking forward to finishing in the near future. My hobbies and interests are- let's see, there are just so many it's hard to pick any out. Right now I would guess that the tings I like to do the most are reading, playing the piano and English Handbells, and running. I love being the steward of my family and helping them to eat healthy meals. I love watching my kids learn and grow and spending time with my hubby.

Why I am a Mormon

Firstly, I guess because I was born into the church. However, both of my parents are converts (both joined in their teens before they met) so as I grew older we were able to have discussions as a family about how and why they joined the church and what that meant to them. Eventually though everyone needs to find out for themselves. I don't recall ever having a big "aha" moment where I learned that I knew the Church was true. Mostly I just read and prayed and added to what I already knew. I guess what I mean is that since I never really doubted, I never had to find out the truth, it was always inside me. It always made sense. Now that I have a family, it's so nice to be able to share my testimony with my children and help them discover that testimony of their own.

How I live my faith

I think the most important ways that I live my faith, are by teaching my children righteous principles and just trying to do a little better every day. For the past 2 years I have been the music leader for the little children. So I teach them songs and we all sing together. Being the person I am though, I can't just leave it at that. We always had to talk about WHY we were singing that particular song and WHAT it meant. So we would dissect all the words of the song and discuss the principle that the song was trying to teach. I think that no matter what your position is in the church, there is always an opportunity to teach.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

For me, that's one of the most important doctrines in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To know that my husband and I will be together forever with our children and our ancestors, well, that's the meaning of life isn't it? I couldn't imagine having relationships here on earth and loving people only to be separated from them. Show more Show less
