Hi I'm Jilyn

I'm a cosmetologist. I'm an animal lover! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to hike and be outdoors! There's nothing better than being at the top of a mountain and yelling at the top of your lungs! I love trying new recipes too! I love to sing and dance and learn Spanish!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I have many ancestors who are Mormon so it's been a big part of my life since I was small. There's no doubt in my mind that I would've had a different life had my parents not been members of the church and set a good example for me. This is the reason why I grew up as a Mormon but it's not the reason why I remain an active member in this church. I know that this is the only church on the face of the earth with the power and authority from God to do acts (like baptism) in His name.

How I live my faith

I recently just finished serving a mission in Iowa. I shared with the Spanish speakers of Iowa my testimony and why I know that the church of Jesus Christ was restored through a prophet, Joseph Smith. I shared with them the love that God has for them!

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Jilyn
Yes! Not only do I believe it but I know it! The prophet today is President Thomas S. Monson. I know that he has been called of God it be the prophet of God's church. He recieves guidance for us from the Lord specifically for our day. Show more Show less

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Jilyn
The Lord has given us everything that we have in our lives so the 10% of our income is to repay all the Lord has given us. No one is payed with the money, instead it helps the progression of the Lords church. Used to build meeting houses and other things of that sort. Show more Show less
