Hi I'm Levana Jessop

SoCali-Island Girl:) Blessed with the opportunity to be on a mission. I LOVE life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have given up only 18 months of my life to serve the Lord and our brothers and sisters in the GREAT California Long Beach Mission. I love to learn and experience new things and talk to all sorts of new people. I LOVE life and I LOVE to laugh. I have been blessed with the ability to find the good in just about any situation. And, am always smiling or laughing. Smiles are contagious, make sure you always wear one :) I am the youngest of 3 and belong to a wonderful, amazing and supportive family. I love Polynesian dancing, or dancing in general, the beautiful sunshine, baking and taking pictures. I like talking to all sorts of people and learning about different cultures. Swimming is great too and playing sports. :) I do hair and make up and I like helping others feel good about themselves. I grew up in California, (funny huh) and live in American Samoa. I LOVE my culture and I am so glad to have spent time there with my family and formed relationships I will have for a lifetime. I am grateful for the things I experienced there because without them, I would not be here today. My family has helped me prepare to serve a mission in more ways than they will ever know. I love being an aunty to the cutest and sweetest kids ever. Their testimonies in Jesus Christ has strengthened my own testimony and given me the courage to do what I do each day, share the Gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

I have never known a greater love than God's love for me. I know that and I have felt confirmation from the Spirit that this is the only true church here on the earth at this time. The same church that Christ established during his mortal ministry is the same one we are apart of. That the Gospel of Jesus Christ was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon was translated through him by the power of the Lord. We have a living prophet there on the earth to lead us, guide us and direct us. Heavenly Father would not leave us without, we are the other sheep of his fold that is why we have the Book of Mormon, Another Testsment of Jesus Christ. I love the gospel and the true happiness I feel inside my heart when I am able to share it with others and bear testimony.

How I live my faith

I truly believe that without faith there is nothing. One must have faith in all aspects of life in order to know where we came from, why we are here and where we are going. I have faith in our Heavenly Father knowing that he sent us his only Begotten Son to atone for our sins and make it possible to return to Heaven with him and Our Father again. It is a blessing for me to know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have enough faith in me to be a missioanry and share the Gospel with others. I live my faith by being an example of righteousness. We all mistakes in life and knew that we would when we chose to come to earth. Each trial and hardship we experience is for our good weather we see it at the time or after it is to learn, progress and grow. That is why we have the Atonement so we can be cleansed from our sins and return to Heavenly Father. I know that without the Atonement I would not be where I am today, so I do my best each day to live that faith Christ has in me and show it to others.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

If you get down on your knees and pary with a sincere heart to our Father in Heaven if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the one true church on earth he will without a doubt answer your prayers. If you have a Book of Mormon and have a true desire to know if this is the true church you can read in there as well that will tesity to the truthfullness of this Gospel. The spirit communicates to us all differently, so it is important to recognize the feelings and thoughts that are placed in your heart and mind. Don't forget to listen after you pray :) Show more Show less
