Hi I'm Jessica

I love the outdoors, running, riding horses, camping, photography, and spending time with my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outside doing everything from running in the rain to digging in the dirt. I love anything to do with horses. I don't think my parents knew what they were getting themselves into when they stuck me on a pony when I was three. I've now ridden for 15 years and feel at home in a saddle. I am the oldest of seven children and wouldn't trade it for anything! I recently returned from an 18-month Spanish-speaking mission in Iowa that I wouldn't trade for anything! I left a piece of my heart with the wonderful people there. I am studying Human Biology at BYU-Idaho, hoping to do something in the medical field. I love to learn. I also love photography, gardening, traveling, interior design, cooking, running, hiking, writing, and just being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has made all the difference in my life. I was raised in the church, and though most people have a "conversion story" I always knew it was true. Almost two years ago my little brother was diagnosed with cancer. The experience shook not only me, but my family to the core. Even though I knew the church was true, I had some doubts through this experience. I came to realize how close Heavenly Father is to us. He will never abandon us. I know that families are forever through the blessings of the temple. As I face challenges my faith is tested, but I always come out stronger, and better because of the struggle I have been through and the reassurance that God will not leave us alone.

How I live my faith

My faith comes out in every aspect of my life. The decisions I make, the things I do, the person I want to become, and the goals I set are all centered on my purpose here on Earth : to prepare to meet God.
