Hi I'm Jamie

I'm a nursing student. I'm an aspiring traveler and humanitarian. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Jamie. I am a junior studying to get a Bachelors Degree in nursing. This Spring I will be traveling to India providing medical services to leprosy-affected individuals, as well as teaching children in the community. I have one more year of school, but will be deferring to go on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I will be spending 18 months teaching and serving the people of Spain. I am excited to learn spanish, and share something so precious to me-the Gospel of Jesus Christ-with the people of Spain. Family is very important to me. I am the middle of seven children. My siblings are my best friends, and I love laughing and being around them. I LOVE school and learning! I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes with friends. I love shopping at thrift stores with my sisters, and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that were faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. From a young age I was taught the principles of the gospel and encouraged to live according to them. However, the reason that I am still a Mormon today is because of the personal witness and testimony I gained as I consistently read the Book of Mormon, was obedient, and asked my Heavenly Father if the things I was taught from a young age were true. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought happiness and peace into my life. I am so grateful for the gift of the Holy Ghost and prayer to guide me at this point in my life when I am making big decisions. I am grateful for the blessings of the temple, and the knowledge that I can be with my family after I die. The gospel of Jesus Christ is an integral part of all aspects of my life, and I cannot imagine not having that blessing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through consistent and daily efforts to live as the Savior did. I work with the women in my ward organizing events, teaching, and encouraging them to live up to their divine worth and potential. I am also a visiting teacher and help minister to the specific needs of a couple of women in my ward. I strive to be involved in the community, and enjoy volunteering at a local clinic. I am excited to become a licensed nurse and have a career where I can go to work everyday and serve those around me.
