Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a mom. I grew up in NY. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a proud wife of a US soldier and were both converts at different times, I'm a mom of a 2 year old little boy and another baby on the way. I have 2 dogs, a red nose pitbull who is my big baby and a sweet little beagle who loves to cuddle :) I am currently going to school to finish my Veterinary Assisting certificate, I LOVE ANIMALS! I've traveled a ton since turning 21, Ive been to Hawaii, lived in Alaska for 5 years and drove cross country from Alaska through Canada and across the top of the USA in a small car with both my dogs, my baby boy and my husband! NOW were moving down south! I love my life, my family and my faith!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a Lutheran church, I went every sunday with my grandfather, my father is agnostic and my mom is episcopalian(non practicing) SO I DID GROW UP with a belief in Christ. I lost my faith when I first moved to Alaska and then my grandma passed away, I kept asking "why?" "why did God take someone so precious away from me?' then I lived in Washington for a little while when my husband was finishing up his tour in Alaska, myself and my son stayed with LDS member friends, my friends husband was brought up in the church, and his wife was investigating. While she met with the missionaries, I just sat aside and observed and listened, wondering what made them different then the church I grew up in. well after listening and reading the Book of Mormon, I investigated and asked what felt like a million questions, with more learning and coming to terms God didnt purposely take away my grandma to hurt me. I chose to be baptized in the ONE true church of Christ. I have been so blessed since becoming baptized and accepting Christ back into my life. When we moved to NY and I switched wards, my husband started Investigating, and himself being brought up pentecostal, chose to be baptized. I am excited and happy beyond words that I know my family will live together again after this world.

How I live my faith

My family goes to church every Sunday, I got a calling to be a primary teacher but had to regretfully decline because were in the process of moving out of state, but I know God will call on me again no matter where I am. The members of our church are so helpful when we first moved in, during and also helping us during any transition we had. I am blessed to know that we have family in every church no matter where we are!
