Hi I'm Jasmine

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 years old and the oldest of 5 children. I am a full time student, and have wanted to be a dentist since I was 5 years old. I have grown up in a family that loves the out doors and seeing the beautiful world that our Father in Heaven has created for us. I love to laugh, and spend time with family and friends. My family loves to rock hound and tumble or cut and polish the rocks we find and do different things with them. We also love to work with wood and clay. I love to serve those around me, and I'm getting ready to serve as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and have wanted to continue with my faith because I know it is true. I have been blessed with a wonderful family that has helped strengthen my testimony. Being able to have the spirit with me at all times, and knowing that no matter what my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ are always there for me and love me. I know that going that families can be together forever and that my Savior Jesus Christ died for me and all of us so that we can return and live with him again. In trying to prepare for my mission I have gone through some interesting things, which have made me question, but once I get down on my knees to pray or read my scriptures I know what I am doing is right.

How I live my faith

I love to serve others, and with my ward and church callings I have had more opportunities to serve. I love talking to people and learning about other cultures and backgrounds that they come from. I have been able to participate in a few different lu'au's, it amazes me that through learning and sharing dances from the polynesian islands that the spirit can be so strong, and people are able to feel the love of our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ for them. I continue to try to better myself to be a good example and to serve and show others I care, so that hopefully they can feel the love of Christ through me.

Who was Joseph Smith?

Joseph Smith was a 14 year old youngman that had so many questions relating to religion. Growing up there were so many different preachers on the street trying to get people to come join their church, and everyone around him seemed to find a church that suit them. He didn't know what church to join, and when he was reading in the Bible in James 1:5 and it says, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him”. That is exactly what he did. He went into the Sacred Grove and prayed to our Father in Heaven and asked what church he should join. God the Father and our Savior Jesus Christ came to him in a vision and let him know that none of them were the full truth. In the next few years after that different messangers came to visit him to prepare him in restoring the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Joseph Smith is a youngman that had a question, he restored the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth, and is a true Prophet. Show more Show less
