Hi I'm Jess

I am ginger. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently studying to be a paediatric nurse. I enjoy the colour green, I've even been know to have a green jacket, green trousers and green shoes on at the same time.

Why I am a Mormon

My best friend through high school is a member of the church, and when we finished school and he started university we started spending less and less time together, because of his studies and my work. He invited me to come to a church activity because that would be a way to fit me into his busy life! It was a short lesson and the activity after was dancing, so I thought why not? I really had fun and met some great people. Afterwards my friend asked me if I'd like to meet with the missionaries and find a bit more about the Church, I said yes thinking it would be interesting to learn about it. It was pretty fun hanging out with the Elders, and just discussing all the doctrine and things, but after a while it started to click in my head, that it all makes sense, which really was something because I didn't even believe in God before never mind anything else. I prayed about the Book of Mormon, and if this was the true church. I got my answer when watching a video called 'The Restoration' I could just feel that it was right, and it wasn't just the overwhelming feeling that there is a God, but that Joseph Smith is a prophet. From then I knew this was true, and agreed to be baptised. Over a year later and I'm happier than ever, it's the best decision I've ever made.

How I live my faith

I work with the nursery children in the ward, it's pretty fun, we teach them gospel things on their level and I also get to play with play dough which is always fun! I also really enjoy YSA activities; they are for 18-30 year olds. It's really good to get together as friends that have the same beliefs as you and to have fun.
