Hi I'm Jessica Eve

My favorite candy is Smarties . I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm am a Junior in College studying Mathematics. I'm currently debating between a career as an actuary or a cryptographer, but my favorite would be a high school math teacher. I love to read. Right now I'm reading all the Twilight books and Harry Potter books. I like to read a book before I see the movie. I love to play soccer and lazer tag, and although I'm no good at it, I find basketball to be fun as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to two parents who are both mormon, and they as I grew up they taught me about the Gospel, and in the process taught me how to live my life more Christ like. When I was 8 years old I was given the decision to be baptised as a member of the chruch, and I accepted because I knew that I wanted this life style to always be a part of my life, and I knew that the Chruch was true. I grew up believeing in the church because my parents taught me to, but I received my own personal witness that the chruch is true when I was 12 years old. I was reading The Book of Mormon and had decided to pray about it. I already knew that the chruch was true, but I was told it would be a good idea to really find out for myself. After I finished reading the Book of Mormon I prayed about it, and I felt good about it, so I figured that was my answer, but the next sunday I was reading Joseph Smith's account of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appearing to him in the first vision, and that's when it trully hit me. I knew that the church was true. To this day I still know with all my heart that the church is true. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. I know that he found and translated the gold plates so that we could have the Book of Mormon today, and I know that Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet on the earth today, and I am eternally grateful for how much Heavenly Father loves me to send his only begotten son to this earth to die for my sins. I know that the atonement is real, and I know that with out Christ and without repentance I would never be able to make it back to live with my Heavenly Father again. I know that with hard work, dilligence in the gospel, charity, and faith, and a lot of help from my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, I will be able to return to heaven to be with God and with my family. I am so grateful for this knowledge, and I hope that everyone gets the oportunity to hear about the gospel and feel the way I feel about it!

How I live my faith

I love reading my scriptures and saying my prayers. Praying is the best way that I know of to keep in constant comunication with my Heavenly Father. I attend Church every week and am so grateful for that spiritual upliftment every week. I go to the LDS temple at least once a month, and I enjoy listening to uplifting church music to help me feel the spirit and think clearlly.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?
