Hi I'm Jess

I love ultimate frisbee, hiking, reading and treaties! My husband and kids are my favorite friends. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a stay at home mom, but I don't stay at home too much! I love to play ultimate frisbee with my friends and I love to volunteer at my kids' schools. Sometimes I get a babysitter so I can go out but usually I kid swap with another mom-friend so that she can have a day at her kids school too. It works out pretty nicely. I love the public library. Reading for fun is a new thing for me. My husband and I read a few fun books together in the early years of our marriage and as our kids have grown we have begone reading chapter books to them. They love it! In the last year or two as my husband has been diligently working on his MBA I have found myself reading more and more. (I have even stayed up till past mid-night a few times, which is totally out of character for me!) My husband is my best friend and we enjoy hiking and being outside with our three awesome kids.

Why I am a Mormon

In my late teen years I attended a Mormon activity. A cake walk! Somewhere in that night I felt a feeling of being "at home" that I had never felt before in my life. I soon after starting reading the Book of Mormon and as I grew to feel my Saviors love in its pages I knew I was at home. I committed myself to living His Gospel. I am now in my early thirties and I know every choice I have made since that one has been blessed.

How I live my faith

I teach my kids about Jesus. They know He loves them and that God, who is their Father in Heaven, does hear and answer their prayers. We are good "neighbors". We make an effort to be involved in our community and in lives of our friends. Our local branch is small so we are often the only Mormons many of them know.
