Hi I'm Jasmine

I grew up in Idaho. I'm a collegiate tennis player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play the violin, piano, and guitar. I love tennis and I play it at the college I am going to. I am used to getting my hands dirty. I live on a farm and irrigate every summer. Living on a farm has taught me the value of work. I love to forget my worries and cares in a good book. I like art and have taken two semesters of drawing in college. It was a lot of fun and I learned a ton. My dad says he had farmer's luck. He has five children and all of them are boys except for four. I have three crazy sisters that I love being with. They are sweet and fun to be around. I also have one brother who has been the best example I could ask for. He is always out serving others and giving of his time. My parents are good, hard-working people. My mom is always encouraging us to live our dreams and does all she can to help us. My dad has a great memory and can give a life lesson by just saying a couple of words. I know that I have been blessed to know many wonderful people in the little town I live in. My best friend is a missionary right now and he has changed my view on life. He has been a wonderful support. I have a good life, with amazing people in it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on this earth. It changes lives, it brings people to Christ, It brings understanding to our purpose on this earth, it unites families, and it has the fullness of the truth. There is nothing that has brought more peace in my life than living by my LDS beliefs and following the Savior. When I do this life is easier, not because things are less trying, but because I am doing what is right and that brings true joy. When I turned eight, I decided to join the church because I didn't want to take the missionary discussions like my sisters did. Since then, my testimony and faith have grown. I watched as my family grew in the Gospel. It changed all our lives. We still had our problems and all of us still struggle. The right path isn't always the easiest, but it is worth it. I know that living the Gospel is worth it. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith translated it. I know he saw God the Father and his son, Jesus Christ, in the Sacred Grove. I know that God loves all his children and as we pray to him we can feel that love. I know that Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again. I know that the Atonement is powerful and it can work wonders in our lives if we use it. I know that I have a forever family and I am grateful that I do. I am thankful for all that God has given me. I know he blesses my life each day in so many different ways.

How I live my faith

I visit four lovely women in our church each month, I am the secretary for the presidency that looks after the women in our church, and I plan on going on a mission in three months to share the Gospel.
