Hi I'm Jesse

I am from California. I am going on a mission on May 16, 2012. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I just graduated a year ago from Bakersfield College with my AA degree in accounting. I love to sing and play the piano, though I am only just learning how to play. I am going on my mission in two days and will be serving for two years.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. Life without him would be meaningless. I have seen the lives of those around me and the choices they have made. In almost every single case, those who do not have God in their lives have a miriad of problems that affect the choices they make. I see families that are split apart. I have seen students fight, and have seen the results of both drugs and alcohol on different people. For me though, as a member of the church, I am happy. I make the kind of decisions that I know God would want me to make. I understand his plan for me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it containse the truth of the Gospel of Christ. I know that through Joseph Smith, God restored his true chuch upon the Earth once more. I know that Thomsas S. Monson is a true prophet of God and that he receives revelation and guidance directly from Heavenly Father. I know that Jesus suffered and died for me so that I may return to live with him once more. I know that he is my savior and that his atonement applies to me. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I am going on a mission. I have prepared for my mission my whole life. That is how I show my faith to my Heavenly Father.
