Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a college graduate just trying to make it through life; I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 25 years old recent college graduate. I'm a home ec teacher. I love teaching, cooking, reading, and learning about new cultures. I love spending time with my family; I have 2 brothers, 1 sister, and 1 sister-in-law. I've moved 25 times in my life - living in 3 countries outside the US, and 7 states inside the US; I love meeting new people and experiencing new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is what I know to be true. I did grow up in this church, yes, but there came a point in time when I knew that I needed to find out for myself whether or not everything that my parents had taught me was true or not. In the Book of Mormon there is a promise to all people that says that, if you will read this book, and pray to ask God to know if it's true, He will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost. I had the opportunity to do just that - to read the Book of Mormon, and pray to know that what I was reading was true. Nothing really big happened, but a peaceful, calm feeling comes over me every time I read, letting me know that I am doing what Heavenly Father wants me to do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church each Sunday, reading my scriptures daily, and saying my prayers daily. I know those sound like simple things, but those are the things that help me grow closer to my Heavenly Father; and some might say that it gets repetative, but it's really amazing the new things that I learn every day.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormon church) are funded by themselves, their family, and friends. They are encouraged to work and save up money before they leave on their mission to help fund that period of time that they give to the Lord. In the case that they are not able to fund their mission, for whatever reason, there is a fund that the Church has set up that members may donate to in order to help fund the missionaries around the world.
