Hi I'm Jessica

I'm Mexican. I'm Japanese. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife, mother, daughter, aunt and a teacher. I love date nights with my husband. I love to read anything. I love Jane Austen movies. Sudoku and Scrabble are my favorite games. I enjoy baking, sewing, running, having girls nights, reading with my children and shoe shopping! I'm half Mexican and half Japanese. I do not speak Japanese but I do speak Spanish and I love to teach Spanish to children. Are my children bilingual? Nope! It's a work in progress. I don't like sushi but I love carne asada tacos. I've never been to Japan but I've been to Mexico many times. Having been born in Mexico and being privileged to live in the United States, I am proud to me an American (citizen)! I tear up whenever I hear the Star Spangled Banner or recite the Pledge of Allegiance out of sheer gratitude that I get to live here. There you have it, my life in an itty bitty paragraph!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's what feels right and good, and it makes me happy! I am blessed with child-like faith. I know Jesus is my Savior. I know Heavenly Father loves me, knows me, and hears and answers my prayers. I've known this my whole life even before I joined the Church. I am grateful to those missionaries that came to our door all those years ago when I was a child. I'm grateful my parents felt the need to find a church for their family. I'm grateful for the challenges that have helped me to develop and strengthen my relationship with my Savior. I'm grateful I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I get to live my faith every single day from the moment I wake up to the moment I lay my head down at night. I start my day with prayer and I end it with prayer. I live each day so that each night I have no regrets about who I am and what I believe in. Living my faith is a way of life, it's the choices I make each day, it's the way I serve, it's the way I speak, it's just the way I am.

What is the Relief Society?

To me Relief Society is strength. Strength of millions of faithful women trying their hardest every day to serve the Lord, their families and their communities. Show more Show less
