Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Jess

I'm a missionary in Montana, I'm an outdoor adventure enthusiest, I LOVE good Thai food, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now, I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Nauvoo, Illinois mission! Before my mission I was attending college where I was studying to get my Bachelor's Degree in Recreation Management. I have the best family in the whole world. I love to laugh, make people laugh, Climb mountains, ski, sing, and eat delectable food. What a great life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have read from the Book of Mormon and I have prayed to know that it is true. After reading and praying about it, I got a witness for myself from the Holy Ghost that this is a true record, really written by prophets and apostles that were on the Ancient Americas, and that Joseph Smith truely translated it by the Power of God! So Amazing!!! I'm a Mormon because I want to return and live with my Heavenly Father with my family and I know that the only way to do that is to accept the Gospel of Jesus Christ that has been restored to the Earth by a modern prophet.

How I live my faith

I stive to live my faith by my everyday actions and decisions. By keeping the commandments, reading the Book of Mormon and Bible regularly, attending church, serving, etc. I feel like I am exercising my faith in Jesus Christ and feel closer to Him. I am currently serving a mission, and by teaching others of the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I live my faith everyday. There is no greater joy than to see others be touched by the Spirit to know that the Gospel has been restored to the Earth again! I live my faith by loving others, serving them, and by striving to be the best person I can be. When trials and hardships come, Keep Moving Forward!!!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jess
The great thing about the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that no one has to take anyone else's word for it! We are all given the freedom and gift to choose for oursevles whether something is really true and right or not. The way to find out if the teachings of the Mormons is true is incredibly simple. All you need is a little faith and a desire to know it's true. The Book of Mormon is another testiment of Jesus Christ that holds hand in hand with the Bible in testifying of the Savior. It was translated by the power of God by Joseph Smith and contains the pure and complete Gospel of Jesus Christ. As Mormons, we believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God. If the Book of Mormon is true, then Joseph Smith really was a Prophet, called by God to translate the record, and through Him, the Church of Jesus Christ and His Gospel has been restored to the Earth. So really, it all hinges on whether or not you believe the Book of Mormon to be true. To find out, you simply must have a strong desire to know, read from the Book of Mormon (how can you find out if something is true or not if you don't read it!?!), and then sincerely ask God if it is true. Because Heavenly Father loves all of His Children, He will let them know in their own way that it is true. I promise it works, I have done it myself, and because of the knowledge that I have gained from finding out the Church is true will forever change my life! Show more Show less
