Hi I'm Jeremy David Sessions

I grew up in the military. I've lived in 4 countries and gone to 10 different schools. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! I'm a student at BYU Idaho studying Political Science. My dad is retired military, so I've had the opportunity to live all over the world and meet lots of interesting people. I've lived in Panama, England, Norway, and of course, the United States. Right now my life consists of school, work, and sleep just trying to finish school and move on with my life. I want to be involved in public affairs in government, maybe work on an election campaign. I served a full time mission in Norway for two years and met a lot of really cool people there. I learned a lot about myself, my beliefs, and the beliefs of others. Plus, I got to learn a really cool language.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. But none of us are born with faith, and I was no exception. Just like any other person who investigates the church, I had to do my reading and studying to find out if the church was true and if it really was something I wanted to dedicate my life to following. There was a period of my life where I felt I had done my investigating, and I decided that it just wasn't for me. Eventually however, I reached a point where I had to admit to myself that I hadn't really put in a full effort, because I was afraid of changing who I was. Now, looking back, I can see that the changes which have come to me since I really received a testimony of the Book of Mormon, and in extension The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as the path that God wanted me to take, have been overwhelmingly positive. It is that message and testimony that I shared with the Norwegian people, and helping those that I meet to find that peace and support which I have experienced from being finally secure in what I believe, and comfortable with the answers I have found.

How I live my faith

I have always felt that the little things are important. I've never had any amazing spiritual experiences, no visions or awakenings or anything like that. Mostly, I just get the satisfaction of having accomplished something good as I pray, read the scriptures, and attend church. It's those small, practical things that contribute most to the growth of my faith as I go through life.
