Hi I'm Jessica

I am twenty-one years old. I went to school in Idaho and will soon be living in Ecuador! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica. I was born in Wyoming and love everything country. My favorite singer is Keith Urban and my favorite book is Pride and Prejudice. I even named my dog Mr. Darcy. I am currently going to college for English Education in High Schools. I will soon be in Ecuador for a full time mission for my church. I am so excited to finally make a difference!

Why I am a Mormon

 My parents raised me in the Mormon faith. I was baptized when I was eight years old and kept going to church with my family. When I was in High School I really wanted to find out if the church was true. I went on a church history trip for three weeks and thought I would get the answer during those amazing three weeks. But I didn't receive an answer then, I came home and sincerely asked my Heavenly Father with faith if the church was true. I knew at that moment that it was. The best feeling came over me, it was a feeling of peace and happiness. I know that this gospel is true and it is precious to me. 

How I live my faith

I'm your average 20 year old girl, the only difference between me and anyone else is I am a Mormon. I don't drink, that includes coffee or tea so High School for me was a little different. I meet people through my faith, in seminary classes and now at college most students here are members. I love being able to have friends with the same goals and desires that I have. I am a Sunday School teacher in church up here at school. I feel so unqualified to teach others but the Lord strengthens me to be able to fulfill my calling. 

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

 I am single, but when I am lucky enough to be married I hope that my future husband will want to be with me forever. I want to be with my children forever. I love my family so much and that is what this life here on earth is all about to me.... family!  Show more Show less
