Hi I'm Jess

I am a Mother of 2 awesome kids, a wife to a wonderful man, and I am a mormon.

About Me

My husband and I are from the United States, and right now have the unique opportunity of living in another country while he is in school. This experience has been a wonderful, eye-opening, learning opportunity for both of us! We have made memories here we will cherish forever. I love the outdoors! Hiking, and biking are some of my favorite things to do. I love warmth, and beautiful sunny days!! :) My hobbies have shifted since becoming a mother of 2 beautiful children, and now in my down time I like to find time to rest!! :) I have also found a new interest in writing, blogging, and trying to stay in touch with my family while living away. I am fortunate to have married my best friend! Life is enjoyable and fullfilling by his side! I love being a mother, and looked forward to having children most my life. I am blessed to have both a sweet little girl, and fun little boy. Defintely the best of both worlds! I am grateful to be living in Canada, and to be enjoying life with the ones I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised by the love and faith of wonderful Latter- Day Saint Parents. The Gospel of Jesus Christ was taught in my home, and put into action by those around me. Gospel roots run deep in my family, and many of my ancestors were the early pioneers of the Church. Truly, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the `Faith of my Father`s. I grew a testimony of this church as a young girl, and found the greatest happiness when I was striving to live righteously. Through learning, and growth, and through the great mercy of my Savior Jesus Christ, my testimony grew into a burning conviction deep within my heart of knowledge and truth. I found the teachings I had been taught throughout my life were TRUE and applicable to my life. And, I found that through applying those teachings I grew closer to God, Our Eternal Father. What a marvelous blessing for the soul who hungers and thirsts after righteousness! As I continue through my adult life, I find myself ever seeking to live closer to him. This is how I continue to find the greatest peace, happiness, and joy. My life`s greatest blessings have come from being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am grateful for, and cherish my membership in this Church. I love the Gospel of Jesus Chirst with all my heart, and strive to live it with all that I am. It gives me direction in this life, and faith in the future.

How I live my faith

We strive to teach and live the gosple daily in our home, so our children will learn to love their Savior, and follow Him. We live our faith everyday, and with every breath we take. In our home we live the Gosple daily by: Praying together, listening to wholsome and uplifting music, reading from the Scriptures, being kind to one another, working together, serving one another, striving to follow Christ`s example, and by keeping the commandments. We belive in reaching out to others, no matter the need, and devote much of our time and talents to doing so. We serve in our home, community, schools, families, and neighborhoods. Serving others puts us on a fast track to happiness and fullfillment. One of the things I love most about living the Gospel daily is the direction and purpose it brings to my life, as well as the purifying power it has to bring about change in powerful ways.
