Hi I'm Jessica Lorriane

About Me

I am a homeschooling mother of three. My oldest just got baptized and my twins are 5. We are a musical family, we love to sing and two of my kids play instruments (violin and cello), the third will start piano when he is ready. I play bassoon and my husband just enjoys the music we make. We are also a reading family. My oldest is reading Harry Potter and the twins are learning how to read. My husband and I read most anything we get our hands on. We like to start our school day by singing and reading the scriptures.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Catholic. At different times in my life that meant different things. As a small child I went to church regularly, then my mother passed away and my father stopped going. As I got older I realized that something was missing and once I was able, I went back to church on my own. This seemed good at the time. When I got to college I met my future husband, a Mormon. We knew we were going to get married, but couldn't figure out how since he said he wold only get married in the Temple and I couldn't. So I began to investigate this church that made my boyfriend so sure of this Temple marriage. I read the Book of Mormon and knew it was true. and once I knew that, I could not deny myself the opportunity to become a member of this church. When you see the truth, it is really hard to turn around and ignore it. I made one of the best decisions then, and I have been grateful for it ever since. Life isn't perfect, we have our ups and downs, but I know that my Father in Heaven will always be there for me, and that has made all the difference.

How I live my faith

I am a Ward Missionary and with that calling I get to visit people within our ward boundaries and teach a class for new and investigating members. The class is to help anyone who wants to get a better foundation in the Gospel and is always fun to teach. I am also the Ward Choir Director. This is so fun as I get to work with the volunteer choir. I get to choose songs for Sacrament Meetings and take great joy in finding the music that will add to the Spirit felt in the meetings.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Jessica Lorriane
Family is the most important thing in the world, if we think about it. Mother and father come together in love and create children. These children can bring so much joy into our lives! It cannot be denied that children who grow up in a two parent household where the parents love and respect both each other and their children have a better chance in this world. The Law of Chastity helps us make this more attainable. Simply put, the Law of Chastity states that only a man and woman who are legally married should engage in sexual relationships. This helps preserve the not only the family, but also a persons self worth. Show more Show less
