Hi I'm Jessica

I received my BA in Art History. I have two kids and work from home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Most of my time is spent taking care of my two kids. I had never thought children were in my future and went to college planning on having a career, but I love my children and find that there is no job as demanding, difficult and rewarding as raising children. When I do have free time I like to read books especially sci-fi or fantasy type fiction. I also enjoy making home made cards, because I really enjoy creating things with my hands. I am a beginner cook who would love to be a master chef and probably watch way to much Food Network. I also like to going camping and enjoy visiting historical sites and museums.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon and it is usually assumed that since I was raised Mormon that I am Mormon. But I believe everyone who is Mormon has a conversion. I am Mormon because when I was a teenager I wanted to know if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was the true church of God and that the Book of Mormon was the word of God. I wanted to know like everyone around me knew, so I prayed and sincerely asked God if the Book of Mormon was true and I felt a burning in my heart and peace come over me and I knew that it was the Holy Ghost and I knew that the Book of Mormon was true and that it truly is another testimony of Jesus Christ. I am Mormon because I know that this the true church of Christ and that God has restored many lost truths through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know where I came from, I know who I am, I know God's will for me and I know where I am going. I know God loves me and sent his son Jesus Christ to die for me and take my sins upon himself. I know the meaning of true happiness from the peace and contentment from living the Gospel of Christ.

How I live my faith

Part of how I live my faith is by visiting other women in my local church on a monthly basis to get to know them and become friends. To be there as a support when there is stress or hardships in life or to be there to share in the joy and happiness over the good things in life, but also to be there to strengthen each other in the teachings of Christ. I also live my faith by teaching the gospel of Christ when called to on Sundays during church service or church classes.
