Hi I'm Jessica Yates

I'm a daughter and a sister, I'm a cosmetologist, I play volleyball, and... WOOT WOOT Im a MORMON!!

About Me

I absolutely love life! I enjoy warm sunny days but also cloudy rainy days as well! I have all brothers and wouldnt trade any of them for ANYTHING in the world:) I am a cosmetologist student and love what I do! Making people beautiful on the outside gives me happiness on the inside! I love to play any kind of recreational activity! Especially volleyball! Give me a ball, a court, a net and I will play for hours, no questions asked! I am very driven in pursuing my career as a cosmetologist, but when I am not a 'student' I work full-time as a retail sales associate! There is nothing greater than meeting new people everyday! Right now my career has been put on HOLD because I found my true calling in life. Serving my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ as a full-time missionary! This is what I do. This is what matters to me! This gospel has shaped and molded me to be the kind of daughter of God that I want to be! I love being able to witness miracles in other's lives through this incredible gospel! This is what is up! I know this is true and I will never deny it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because IT IS TRUE!! I am one lucky girl to be able to have built my faith for 21 years! I know this is where it is at! I can tell you from first hand experiences that knowing I can live with my family for eternity gives me more than just peace, it gives me pure happiness! I have an incredible family who is closer than anyone else I have ever met! About a year ago we lost our baby brother Billy! It definitely was the most difficult thing I have ever experienced! But I am able to say that because I know of the Plan of Happiness, I know that I will see him again! Its incredible what joy and peace come from knowing that! I can feel Billy's presence all the time and gosh, I can just thank my Heavenly Father every day for allowing that to happen! I love this gospel and ITS TRUE!!!

How I live my faith

How I live my faith?? Besides being able to serve a full-time mission, I try my hardest to find every opportunity to help anyone and EVERYONE recognize that they are a son or daughter of a LOVING Father in Heaven! That is my ultimate goal, is to help others see their true identity, and to act on that. To be able to find for themselves how to obtain true happiness and joy! Being a missionary is the BEST! I love it!

What is faith?

Jessica Yates
Faith is a principle of action. When one has faith, it drives them to DO. Faith consists of trusting God, believing in Him and doing what He asks of us! I know that through pure faith, ANYTHING is possible! Heavenly Father has given us the great gift of Agency, and all we have to do is ACT on the faith we have and use our agency correctly and we will experience happiness and Joy! Faith is everything. Have faith in Christ. Through Him, and ONLY through Him do we one day obtain eternal life! He is the Way. Have faith that He will bless you and you will be happy! Show more Show less
