Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a Mormon. I have lived in Idaho my whole life. I'm an Artist and I love chocolate!

About Me

I have been born and raised in Idaho. I'm currently going to college and majoring in Art. I love watching chick flicks and eating chocolate! Over this past winter I was able to teach an art class to students who came from difficult backgrounds. I enjoyed every minute of it! The kids really learned a lot and they taught me a lot about how influencing our families are and how the choices we make are even more important. I have grown to love and appreciate how much talent we each have.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church my parents have been excellent examples to me of how to live my faith. I have 6 siblings and I truly love my family and it's hard for me to be separated from them while I'm at school. This has gotten me thinking about how awful it would be if our relationships with our families only lasted until death. I have come to learn for myself that we can be a family sealed together forever through the power and authority of the Priesthood. It is because the Savior suffered in Gethsemane, died on the cross and was resurrected on the third day that we have the opportunity to be resurrected after we die and live with God and our families for eternity. If we will do our part here on earth by keeping His commandments we will enjoy this great blessing. I know my Savior died and was resurrected, I know that he restored his Gospel through Joseph Smith and I know that the Bible and the Book of Mormon work hand in hand to testify of the Lord Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to help in whatever position I am assigned. Last semester at school I was called to be a ward indexer I had never heard of such a thing before! Indexing is viewing handwritten documents, such as a death certificate, that have been previously scanned onto the computer and typing the information. This makes family history searching easier and makes it so families can discover their ancestors. It was difficult to understand some of the handwriting but it was a satisfying and fun experience. Right now I serve as the chorister, meaning I lead the music in Church. It is honestly terrifying to see so many faces looking right at you but I have learned a lot about music and leading. It's great to have a reason to go to Church every sunday and have a job to do!
