Hi I'm Jessica

I'm a college graduate, a wife, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to my best friend and am so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I gave birth to our first child, Elaine Raquel, stillborn at almost 8 months pregnant. This was the hardest thing I have been through and am so grateful for my testimony of my Savior, and of the enabling power of His atonement. We are now the parents to Jacob Travis Dyer, born December 2013. He brings so much joy to our lives and we love learning from him everyday! Being with my husband and son is my favorite thing in this world.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm grateful for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the happiness and peace it gives me everyday and in everything. Life is so good no matter what "good" or "bad" things are going on. The Book of Mormon is true and it is applicable to my life every day. There is so much to learn! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is joy, peace, love, faith, hope, charity, consistent, organized, and true. I wouldn't trade my membership in Jesus Christ's church for anything in the world! I am a Mormon because I know the gospel is true and every aspect of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings me happiness.

How I live my faith

Not only do I attend church on Sundays, but living my faith is part of my everyday life. Living my faith means becoming the best person I can be through strengthening myself, my family, and those around me. My husband and I pray and read our scriptures every day. This helps everyday become a bit easier no matter what comes our way. We also look for the Lord's hand in our life each day and write down those tender mercies before going to bed. We also have family home evening every Monday night where we just spend time with each other sharing spiritual experiences, scriptures, and playing games.
