Hi I'm Jillian

I love my family, the Boston Red Sox and orange juice. I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello world! I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love sharing the message of the Restoration with people. I love telling people what I know to be true; it gives me such a sense of accomplishment. I grew up in Utah and attended a university before I came on my mission. I am a Physical Education major. Playing sports all day with kids is my dream job. Growing up with all brothers made me tough, but also helped me love sports. I am an athlete in the fact that I love any and every sport. I love to play, watch, score, attend and participate in most any sports. My family are huge baseball lovers. October is the best time of year because of the World Series. I have been "adopted" into the Red Sox family and will stay there for the rest of forever. I grew up playing soccer as a young kid with my dad and brothers. I have developed a love for the sport and plan to coach some day.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of this church and living the gospel is everything. It is my way of life. It defines who I am. If you take away this church and gospel from me, I am no longer me. I have been blessed enough to have the opportunity of having the true gospel my whole life. Because of that reason I have come out here to Nevada to share the gospel with others. This gospel has helped me every day of my life and I want others to have that too. Sometimes it is hard to talk to people about their beliefs and about God, but then I think of how blessed I am and how much I have been given and I then realize that I have the responsibility to help others come closer to God.

How I live my faith

I love my faith and I love being a Mormon because it's fun! Right now, I am priviledged enough to represent Jesus Christ and serve Him full-time as a missionary. I live my faith by talking to anyone and everyone who will listen (and sometimes not listen) about what I know to be true. It is an adventure at times to open my mouth to some people and go out everyday to help others. I am "Called to Serve" and I love it!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We do it because we are so happy and we want others to share in that happiness. I love telling people about the gospel because it it is fun for me and because it is my duty to help others come closer to Christ. One of the most joyous experiences I have had on this Earth are when I am sharing the gospel and helping others know they are a child of God. Show more Show less
