Hi I'm Jocelyn

I'm the eldest of three, now serving a full time mission, oh and I am also a Mormon.

About Me

I lived by myself for awhile but ended up deciding to move in with my amazing grandparents. I have a full-time job and am a part-time college student who just recently changed my major to Secondary Education with an emphasis in Theatre and minoring in Anthropology and English. I LOVE theatre! I have wanted to be on stage since I was in 7th grade. When most kids were trying to figure out what they wanted to do with life, what I wanted to do and that is to go to Broadway to act, direct, produce, and ultimately become a special effects make-up artist but as of late, I have decided that I am needed to help mold and shape the lives of the youth. To be a mentor and to love them; to show them that I care! That is why I want to be a teacher! To help promote this dying art! I am quite family oriented. They are my life, they are my everything. Even though my siblings drive me bonkers, I still love them and would do everything for them. In my pass time (if I have any free time at all) I also LOVE to read. Oh my goodness, nothing brings me so much joy then to curl up with a book.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon; however, when I moved from my hometown when I was 12 I started falling from the church. I started doing stuff that I knew was wrong but I didn't care. I was going to rebel. I remember the awful feeling that came with living without following the gospel. I remember kneeling down and praying with all my might to our Heavenly Father to help me in any way. The next day I got called by a woman asking me to come to church because she hasn't met me. At first I was uncertain with going but if someone asked me to do something I did it. So I went to church and from on then I knew that this is where I was suppose to do and how I was suppose to live my life. Don't get me wrong. Living the standards that our Heavenly Father asks me too is difficult and some days I question my strength but I always pray to our Father in Heaven to give me strength and I always pull through. I know that this church is true. I know that at my Heavenly Father loves and listens to me. I am so thankful for this gospel that provides me with the truth and understanding of this world. I am so thankful for my family and even though they aren't active members I know that Heavenly Father loves them with all His heart. I know that I am one of His many precious daughters and that always comforts me. I know that one day I will be able to see Him once again and this gives me all the joy in the world and I want to share that joy to everyone!

How I live my faith

Before moving to my college city, I taught the youth mainly the young women. I was their teacher and I was their friend. I discovered that as time went by I grew to love each and everyone of them with all of my heart. I know that they are going to do great things in life and I loved having the opportunity see them grow and develop into amazing women. Right now I help teach mini spirtual lessons on Monday. I usually theme each lesson with a special activity and I love every moment of it. I always give 120% each lesson. I find that when I am preparing for the lesson I am also learning as well as enhancing my knowledge. I love being able to teach my peers something spiritual and I know that they listen to me and by doing this I know that Heavenly Father is blessing me more understanding and patience to give the lesson. I also go to church classes throughout the week. These classes help restore my spiritual gauge so I will be able to live how I am suppose to live and I love every minute of it! There are so many activities as well as lessons throughout the week to go to besides Sunday. They are always so much fun and I know that whenever I go to one that I will leave spiritually refreshed as well as happy. Recently, I have received the honor of going and teaching my Heavenly Father's children because I have gotten called to be a missionary and am to labor in Florida Tallahassee and it's so EXCITING! I am thrilled to go and share my happiness to those who are seeking it!
