Hi I'm Jenessa

I love life! I love smiling, smiling is my favorite. I'm a mormon and proud of it! :)

About Me

Hello! My name is Jenessa. I am from Idaho but am serving as a full-time missionary in the Canada Edmonton Mission. It is the greatest experience! It is the hardest thing I have ever done but it is also the most rewarding. I feel so blessed to be a part of this great cause in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which means so much to me, with the people of Canada. I enjoy meeting and getting to know people and making new friends. I love playing sports, especially soccer and ultimate frisbee. I'm a people person and I love making people happy. I say and do a lot of silly things but it makes life entertaining. I love eating and laughing and sometimes do both at the same time :) I love life and everything that comes with it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know without a doubt that this church is true! I know that our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ love us so much and have given us everything to return back to them. I know that I am a daughter of God and that I matter to Him. That motivates me to live my life the way that He wants us to. I know that living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ bring lasting happiness. I am so grateful to our Savior and what he has done for us. To put it simply, the gospel truly does bring peace, joy, and happiness. It also gives us a purpose to our life, which is learn and grow from our experiences and become more like Jesus Christ. I am Mormon because I love God and want to return back to Him, this is the only way and it is the best!

How I live my faith

Well as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we are supposed to represent our Savior Jesus Christ and do our best to become the type of person that He wants us to be. The whole point of us being here is to come to know Christ, accept Him, and try our best to become like Him. We are supposed to serve God and our fellowmen which is what I am doing as a missionary. The choices I make everyday are how I live my faith. It is who I am and it affects all of my decisions. I know that I'm not perfect and God doesn't expect me to be. But it is important to always try to be better and improve ourselves. Each day I try to do a little bit better than the day before and become more like Jesus Christ.
