Hi I'm Jillian
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.
Which of the Savior’s teachings have influenced you in your life?
Reading from the Bible in St. John chapter 13 verse 35: "By this shall men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." There isn't enough love in this world and I am trying my best to love others and help them feel God's love in their lives more. I don't want anyone to think of me not as a disciple of Christ, so that is why I try and love all, for everyone is great and important in the eyes of 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!
