Hi I'm Jillian Brooke Collingridge

I grew up in Canada. I am a Teacher who loves to create a love of knowledge in my students. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I grew up in the church however, I did not truly gain the strong testimony I have now until I went to University. During those University years are called the decision years. I could not have made the right decisions if it wasn't for Heavenly Father and this gospel. My testimony grew. Trials came, but my faith and testimony stayed strong. I love this gospel. I love to swim, run and play soccer and tennis. Sports are so much fun. I love to learn languages. I speak English and French fluently. I picked up a little German, and I hope to learn Spanish one day. I have a loving mother and father here on earth. They are truly my best friends. Family is the most important to me. I look forward to one day marrying a young man in one of our Heavenly Father's Temples. Together we will continue to grow spiritual and have a loving family of our own and be sealed for eternity. That is one of my biggest goals. I am a Teacher. I hope to one day be able to teach French. I love teaching. I love to see the sparkle in the students eyes and their smiles of joy. I find happiness in teaching.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. Without this church I would not have this true joy that I experience in my life everyday. That joy is something I would not trade for anything. To feel so close to Heavenly Father who loves me and protects me, comforts me through challenges. This gospel keeps me going in life and always keeps me where I need to be. Life is scary world, but with this gospel I feel safe and loved. I know life will bring many great things if I do what the Lord asks of me to do. Trials come all the time for me but with this gospel I go forward with faith and hope. Heavenly Father would never place a trial in my life that he knew I could not overcome. There is no giving up in my life. I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always going forward with faith in all I do. There are so many unknown things in the world. I always pray to my Heavenly Father, then with a good feeling I go forward with faith. I know he knows the right path for me. He has a plan for me and I am going to love it. I put all my Faith in Heavenly Father and in Christ. They protect me and guide me.
