Hi I'm Jamie

I love being outside, learning new things, and helping others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Ecuador, and moved to the United States when I was still young. My parents taught me the importance of service and helping others, and so I love volunteering and try my best to be a good friend to everyone. I'm a full time student, and enjoy spending time with my friends and being outdoors. I like listening to good music, going to the beach, and being active. Life rocks.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel so lucky to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It makes me so happy! My family isn't religious, and I was not raised in the church. Friends of mine introduced me to the gospel when I was younger, but I was very hesitant to begin coming to church on my own. Eventually I received the answer to thoughtful prayer and found out for myself that this church is true. I was baptized when I was sixteen, and that was one of the best days of my life. Although my family isn't Mormon, I've found that it's alright to go to church alone because I know in my heart that it's where I'm supposed to be. I am grateful everyday that I am a part of something so wonderful that has changed my life and continues to make me happy every day.

How I live my faith

I do my best to be a good example and live what I know. Jesus Christ is the best role model for me to follow, and I try a little harder to be more like Him every day. It was a little scary deciding to be baptized during high school on my own, but I figured that if I knew that something was true, I needed to follow it. It's still the best decision I've made, and has brought me so much happiness.
