Hi I'm Jillyan

I'm eighteen. I love the church and my family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jillyan. I'm eighteen and my hometown is in North Carolina. I am currently attending college in Utah. I love field hockey, road-trips and writing. I am currently in Army ROTC and am planning on becoming an officer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed with the opportunity to be born into an LDS family. I love the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for the support it has been in my life. Knowing about the love and Atonement of my Savior has helped me through many struggles and trials as well as uplifted me to the best events in my life. I am so grateful for the opportunity every day to build my testimony and see the wonders that my Heavenly Father places before me. His strength and love is my constant companion. Without it, I wouldn't be the person I am today.

How I live my faith

As a member of my college ward, I have a calling as a visiting teacher. This means myself and one of my roommates are assigned to teach and support two other girls in our apartment complex. We visit them once a month to teach them a lesson from the scriptures and to make sure their needs are being met and to serve them in whatever way they need.

Are Mormons Christians?

Jillyan
Absolutely :) We believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that through His sacrificing Atonement for our sins we can become clean again and return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father after this life. Show more Show less

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Jillyan
Our nickname is derived from another testament of Jesus Christ which we read and follow, The Book of Mormon. It does not mean that we worship Mormon, nor that he is the head of our church. Besides, 'Mormon' is a lot easier to say than 'a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints'. ;) Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Jillyan
We believe the Bible to be a true record of scripture and the life and ministry of Jesus Christ while in the Middle East. We also believe that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ when He visited His people in the Americas after His crucifixion and resurrection. Show more Show less
