Hi I'm Jessica

I am a missionary, serving the lord in New Mexico. I am a mormon.

About Me

I love to run, and hang out with friends. I love to be in the sun as well. I was going to college but i am putting that on hold, and serving a full time mission. I have only been active for about 2 years now. I grew up in the church but my family and i werent very active. 2 years ago i was going through some hard times and knew that I couldnt do it alone. So I started reading the Book of Mormon, and realized that having christ in my life could make me happier, and heal me from my problems.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon becuase I had my own conversion. 2 years ago I was struggling with Annorexia and Depression, generally i am very happy, easy giong person, but when this disease took over it changed my life. I didnt do the things i usually did, i never wanted to go and hang out, I just sat in my room and cried all of the time, and inside i was screaming to get out becuase I so badly wanted to be my self again but Annorexia was too powerful. I have wondeful amazing friend who came into my life at a perfect time and i know it wasnt by accident. The lord knew i was struggling so he sent him to me. He taught me how I can live and be happy and that was with christ in my life. It wasnt until He left on his mission, when i realized that i needed christ in my life. So i just simply started reading the Book of Mormon, and praying. As a few months went on i could see my self becoming more happier and wanting to do more things and slowly getting back to my normal self. With in 6 months i noticed that my annorexia problems and depressing were fading away. after a year had gone by, i again realized that i was better, how in the world did this happen?.. Christs healed me, through the power of the atonement christ was able to heal me, as i continued in his foot steps. I know god loves you and everyone single one of us. He wants ALL of us to be happy, and find joy in this life, and return to him, and he has blessed us with so many ways to find joy and happiness in this life. The main blessings are the Book of Mormon and being able to pray and comunicate with him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith but striving every single day to do better, to be more like christ. He understands that no one is perfect and he isn"t asking us to be perfect, all he asks is that we simply try. I live my faith by praying each day, many times a day so that I can feel his presence, I also read my scriptures so that i can feel his love and learn more about him. I live my faith, but Following in His foot steps, and Following his Example, that Jesu christ set for us. By Having Faith each day in His atonement, by repenting and having that change of heart continuelly, so thati can be pure and clean, By Being baptized by one holding the proper priesthood, that same priesthood that Christ gave to his 12 Deciples before he died, that same power and authority John the Baptist had, He was the only one who could properly baptize Christ. and by receiving the Holy Ghost, what a blessing that is to have the Holy Ghost with us always as we are worthy of it, and by Enduring till the end.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Jessica
Having a savior is the ONLY way we can make it back to our Father in heaven, with out Jesus Christ we would never beable to bcome pure and Clean. The qulification in entering in the Celestial kingdom is being clean. Only through True Repentance can we become clean. Through Jesus Christ our Sins can be forgiven, but its even more than that. In Mosiah 14: 5 it says" But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisements of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed"... because of this great Eternal Sacrifice our Jesus Christ made for all of us we can be healed from any transgressing, pain or sorrow that we will go through in mortality. He went through all that he did so he could litterally understand everything that we each go through, if we turn to him, and allow him to come into our lives and heal us, You will see blessings and miracles. You have to believe and have faith that he can, with out faith and believing, miracles cant happen. I know Jesus Christ is our saviro, I know he lives, and I KNOW he is there for each of us if we let him in. Show more Show less
