Hi I'm Jennifer Wilson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First off, I am probably close the the most ticklish girl in the world! I love sports and being active. In High School, I played Varsity soccer and basketball and continued my basketball career for two years at a Jr College! During college, I studied American Sign Language Interpreting and am really grateful for the skills I developed although I am currently in the process of changing majors. Since I was a little girl, I had major hearing loss, but am now blessed to have my hearing restored after my fifth major ear surgery in 2011. I have been blessed with an amazing family and enjoy spending quality time with them. I am so grateful that through the Gospel, families are eternal.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me in the church. I was baptized at age 8. At that time, I don't think I understood very well the covenants I was making with God at baptism. Now, I am more grateful than ever for my decision to be baptized when I was of age. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has blessed me with peace, comfort, hope, and joy in this life because it helps me more fully understand why I am here and where I am going after this time on earth. This gospel, has guidelines to help people experience true joy in this life. It is a marvelous blessing to have a living prophet on the earth today, The Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith by the power of God, and clears up so much uncertainty in the world today. I know this book is true. President Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet on the earth today and receives revelation from the Lord to lead and direct His church.

How I live my faith

Daily prayer and scripture study have blessed my life immensely. Because of the many responsibilities of life, it can be easy to feel there is not enough time to do these things and push them aside. But I have learned that when I set aside some time to make these two principles, daily prayer and scripture study, a priority in my life, every aspect of my life is blessed and strengthened. The 13th President of the church, Ezra Taft Benson, once said "When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives." This quotes rings true for me each day. How grateful I am for the power that is within daily prayer and scripture study.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Jennifer Wilson
Because I grew up in the church it was easy for me to accept, but I still needed to know for myself of it's truthfulness and have my own testimony of it. Reading and sincerely praying to know that The Book of Mormon is true will help you know. Once it is confirmed to you in your heart that it is true, then it makes sense that everything else in the Gospel is true. Because I have a testimony of the truthfulness of The Book of Mormon I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that there really is a modern day prophet on the earth today who leads a directs His church under the direction of God.

What do Mormons believe concerning the doctrine of grace?

Jennifer Wilson
Grace is certainly important and necessary to our salvation, but we are not 'saved' by grace alone. In the book of 2 Nephi we are told that it is by grace that we are saved 'after all that we can do.' Our actions are really important to the Lord. We must keep our hearts and actions clean and pure each day. One day each of us will stand to be judged according to our works and the desires of our hearts. We cannot be saved by grace alone.
