Hi I'm Jessica

I grew up in Colorado. I'm a mother, a wife, a massage therapist, a celiac (avoiding gluten) and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the wife of a college student and the mother to a beautiful little girl. I graduated from massage school, but right now we are blessed so that I am able to stay home as a full time mommy. It is a lot of work; but I love it. We have some food allergies and so I enjoy baking wheat/ gluten free. I also enjoy crafting and spending time outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know I wouldn't like who I was if I weren't. Living the standards that Mormonism teaches, like keeping the sabbath day holy and abstaining from alcohol and tobacco use for example, helps me live a happy, peaceful life. Because of the teachings of the gospel, and the feelings I experience within about those teachings, I know that I am a daughter of God. I know that He loves me and that He will never leave me to feel alone. I want to live my life so that I can return to live with him again someday.

How I live my faith

Before we moved, I had a calling in the primary and so I spent my Sundays with the children who attended church. There are few things I enjoy more than hearing them sing. They are so loud and confident when they sing of the Savior's love and it reminds me how grateful I am for His love too.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Jessica
My mom passed away recently, but I know that she no more considers herself dead than you or I consider ourselves dead. While her physical body has been laid to rest, her spirit is very much alive in the spirit world- a place where she continues to learn and progress; surrounded by loved ones. The best part is that I know I will see her again one day! Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Jessica
Mormons is the nickname that we, as members of this church, have been given because of a book that we read. Interestingly, this books full title is: The Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ. And, the church that we (Mormons) belong to is: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Yes, Mormons are Christians. We accept Jesus Christ as our Savior and Redeemer. Show more Show less

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Jessica
The role of the husband and wife in the family is to love the Lord and center their relationship in His teachings. When that is done, everything else falls into place. This invites teamwork and love that is so necessary to cultivate a healthy marriage and to raise children together. Show more Show less
