Hi I'm Jessica Leigh Bernard
I am a mother. I am from Vermont and I am a Latter-Day Saint.
I am a single mom. I am 37 years old. I have social security income. I am an aunt to 2 beautiful children named Emily and Owen. Both of my kids were born on July 2nd one year apart.
Why I am a Mormon
I love Jesus Christ and I want to live on Earth forever. I also want to be sealed to my children in a temple so that we can be together forever. I love all of the sacred rituals (ordinances) in the Latter Day saint Church.
How I live my faith
I do not know if this is right or wrong and I do not want to sound like Shrek, but my faith is like the peels of an onion. There are many layers that are cyclical and repeatedly used. I keep going back in my mind to the night that I was given my testimoney that the church was very possibly true. I was very comfortable in a guest bedroom in my parents' house in Vermont. I had The Book of Mormon on my mind, but had not become a member yet. I go back to the day I met my fiance's mother and she and I did or did not see eye to eye? Then I recall how life was for me in my early teens when it was good. These experiences were all very different for me and it is like I am trying to put a puzzle together until I am whole.
