Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a mommy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of three small children and a wife of an amazing man. Family is my life. I love to read to them, dance with them, garden, play in the dirt, tickle them, go to the park, just be a kid. I love to clean, serve, organize things, go to the temple weekly, attend church meetings, work with youth, read.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of the church every day. I choose to be honest, kind to others, faithful to my husband, and an example to my children of how they need to treat others with respect and love. I love to read the Book of Mormon daily and learn what people have experienced before me. I feel warmth and peace as I do this and serve others. A simple phone call can brighten someone's day. My brother, Jesus Christ, is there to comfort me when I need Him......for anything. What a great reassuring feeling that someone is always there. I have felt him lift burdens from me in a tangible way. This is what a brother would do. I have faith that Jesus Christ lives and He is my brother and the Savior of the world. My testimony gives me hope. Hope that there is a reason to wake up every morning and be a good person. I can make a difference!

How I live my faith

I love to serve others. I pray for guidance daily that I may make a difference in someone's life. I visit with the lonely or those who are grieving. I love to clean homes of those who cannot. I am a visiting teacher. I love to visit with my sisters about what is going on in their lives and discuss the gospel and sometimes assist with anything they need. I help plan activities for the young women in my ward. It benefits them by preparing them for their future lives as women, mothers, etc. It also benefits me as I learn many new things and get to be a kid again:) I love to meet people and make them feel welcome and included.

What is faith?

Faith is believing in something with all your heart for that which you have not seen personally. I have gained faith by reading and studying the Book of Mormon and then praying to know if it is true. I attend our meetings then pray to my Heavenly Father and ask if what I heard was true. After praying I feel peace, love, comfort, and hope in my heart and throughout my body. This is the Spirit telling me that these things are true. This feeling is usually different for everyone but always feels uplifting and happy. Show more Show less
