Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a mother of 4 little boys! I run. I take photos. I cook. I create Home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 4 young boys that takes too many photos of our days. With Peter by my side they are taking us for one fun and wild ride! I am raising 4 boys to be loving & thoughtful brothers, respectful & conscientious classmates, interested learners, creative problem solvers, lovers of projects & building, energetic sportsmen, followers of faith ... all the while navigating the murky waters of FPIES - Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome to keep my 2 youngest healthy and thriving.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the Lord Jesus Christ! I was born into a Mormon family, and taught my whole life to know and feel truth when I found it. I was taught to ask God questions by praying. That my prayers would be answered - and they have been continually. Now I am a mom of 4 boys. 2 of them have a serious digestive disease called FPIES. When my first son was a very sick baby, no doctors knew what was wrong for a long 10 months. Prayer saved my child's life. I poured my heart out to God each night and morning asking for help. He taught me what to feed my son, by giving me distinct ideas in my mind and even exact recipes to bake. He helped me understand complicated medical articles. He warned me to keep certain foods out of his body. By the time I reached the correct doctor, she assured me that all I was doing was 100 percent correct. I had saved his life. My prayers were answered. This is one of many faith strengthening examples I have lived. Being a member of this church, and believing its precepts give me answers for my young children as they ask life's questions. It gives my husband and I a moral foundation that guides our family activities, rules, and principles. It gives me a welcoming and caring community to belong to and raise my children in. It gives me hope when life presents me with very difficult health challenges. It gives me direction while navigating the thrilling and sometimes tricky path of marriage. It gives me joy and increases my happiness.

How I live my faith

I teach a Sunday lesson to the women of our congregation. We have thoughtful and interesting discussions about God, Jesus Christ, what we read in Scripture, the realities of our lives, and the many challenges that are individual to each of us. These women of all ages are my friends.
