Hi I'm Jaimie

I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student currently pursuing a degree in Speech and Language Pathology. I enjoy doing activities with my friends and spending time with loved ones. I speak Italian and find joy in traveling and learning about different cultures. I enjoy playing the piano and spending time with my family. I love music and don't know what life would be like without it's influence. When i want to feel the spirit, I love to listen to peaceful instrumental music because it invites the holy ghost and helps me ponder my life and my relationship with God.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints defines who i am. I choose to be Mormon because of the peace the gospel of Jesus Christ brings into my life. I have so much clarity and comfort because of blessings that stem from the doctrines in the Book of Mormon. I know where i came from, what my purpose here is, and where i am going. My days are filled with so much purpose because i know what i am working towards. It is so encouraging to wake up every day and know that i have another opportunity to better myself so that i can be more eligible to live in the presence of my heavenly father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by standing firm in the gospel every day. It is not always easy to be LDS because of the strong influences of the world that surround us but i know without a doubt in my mind this is the lord's way. I try to see life with an eternal perspective and continue to remind myself that the more righteous we are in this mortal existence, the more blessed we will be in the life after this. I live my faith by trying my best to be 100% LDS 100% of the time. Reading scriptures consistently every day is hard at times because we get caught up in the motions of life but i know that on the days i take 30 minutes to shut the world out and invite the spirit in, i feel genuine peace in my heart. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest and most important aspect of my life. I have met so many incredible people and have had so many unforgettable experiences because of it's influence and i want every person around me to feel as blessed as i do by having this in their lives. Being born into the gospel has been the greatest thing that has ever happened to me and i thank my heavenly father for that every day.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a member of the mormon church has brought so much happiness into my life. From my perspective, being a college student, the church has given me so many opportunities to make amazing friendships and experience great things. I moved out of state for college and was really nervous about not knowing anyone. The first week being at my new university, i joined the LDS sorority where i had 50 instant friends. Because the church is established in so many parts of the world, it is so wonderful to be able to go to church when traveling and feel like you are at home. The members of the church are so kind and treat each other like family. The best feeling is knowing you have so many people who care so much about you and love you as if you were related by blood. Being a member of the church, you always have people that are looking after you. Life is not easy and knowing you have a support system wherever you go is so comforting. Show more Show less
