Emily Warburton Jensen has been covering the Bloggernacle for Mormon Times and the Deseret News for four years and counting. She loves searching through the LDS blog world for developments and testimonies that best capture the ever-evolving LDS online experience. Jensen knew she wanted to be a journalist as a 13-year-old in Northern Utah and worked toward that goal, gaining journalism scholarships at BYU-Idaho and then Utah State University. After graduating, she worked as Web editor at the Deseret News before pausing her full-time journalism career to raise her five children with her husband. She continued to work from home in various writing and editing jobs and was delighted to come back to the Deseret News in 2008.
