Hi I'm Jasmine

I'm a mother. I'm an artist. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a mommy, musician, dancer, and lover of all things beautiful and inspiring. I find great joy in my family, the peoples and wonders of the world, the gift of creativity, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I spend most of my time changing diapers, making and cleaning up messes, and playing with my children and husband. I am a wife and mother first, and next, I would say I am an artist. When I can, I love to use my artistic gifts and skills to share my testimony and the beauties of life with those around me. I love the 13th article of faith which states, "if there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." When I compose or arrange music or create a piece of choreography, I keep this in mind. I hope that what I share with the world is uplifting and edifying. I know that the spirit can deeply touch our hearts through beautiful music, dance and other art forms. I hope to reflect the light of Christ and goodness in all I do, whether as a mother, an artist, a friend or a teacher. I am by no means perfect at it, but it is something I constantly strive for.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in an LDS family, with parents and teachers who taught me by word and example about Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and their love for all their children. They taught me to pray to Heavenly Father, and they taught me that he would answer my prayers. Of all the things I learned as a child, I believe prayer was the most important. I am a mormon because I have received answers to prayers concerning the divinity of Jesus Christ, the purpose and plan of life, the Book of Mormon, the prophet Joseph Smith and the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and answers to many other questions. The answers that have come to me through prayer have been warm, peaceful, joyful impressions of understanding that put my mind and my heart at ease. I know that those feelings come through the Holy Ghost, who testifies of truth. The other key to my testimony and faith is simply living the gospel. When I read the scriptures, I feel the same spirit as when I pray. That tells me they are true. When I listen to the prophet and other leaders in conferences of the church, I witness the undeniable feelings of confirmation that they are the Lord's servants. When I live the teachings of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I am happier, kinder, more peaceful and loving. I feel His presence with me, and I desire to be more like Him. Living the gospel is the surest way to discover the truthfulness of it.

How I live my faith

I try to take a little time each day to pray, meditate and study the gospel of Jesus Christ. I try to remember the Savior as I go about my day to day life, and I seek opportunities to serve His children. I try to be kind, patient, and compassionate. I have three young children who provide opportunities for me to exercise those virtues on a daily basis. Sometimes I do better than others. When I make mistakes, I do my best to correct them and pray for help to become better. I have faith that I can overcome my weaknesses with the help of the Savior.
