Hi I'm Jenica

I like duct tape. I want to teach math. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of seven kids, and now having a new experience being the youngest of my roommates. I am currently a junior in college, just finishing my first year living away from home! I want to teach math and work as an artist. I know those sound conflicting, but I couldn't decide between them. I love rock climbing, volleyball although I'm terrible at it, math, hiking, and making things out of duct tape.

Why I am a Mormon

Peace is the feeling I search for above all else. One of Christ's many names is the Prince of Peace, and by following Him I find peace in its truest form. Knowing that I am working to meet my Heavenly Father's expectations of me is worth any sacrifice. I find joy in serving the Lord and the people around me, and the ordinances of the Church have blessed my life beyond measure. 

How I live my faith

Along with my roommate, I am assigned to visit two other women each month. We talk about how classes are going and the words of the Prophet, and we do all we can to help them with anything they need. Every week I put together a flyer with activities and talks that are coming up, the birthdays that week, and reminders so that everyone in our neighborhood can be informed and participate.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Jenica
 We have always had a Bible, and many truths of Christ's teachings, including a record of His life and ministry, are included in it. The Bible is precious, but it needs a second witness through the Law of Moses, Jesus teaches us that truth will always be verified by two or more witnesses. The truths in the Bible and those in the Book of Mormon and other scripture given since the Restoration do not conflict additional scripture and revelation serve to complement and confirm the truth of the Old and New Testaments.
