Hi I'm Jessica Menden

I've grown up all over the USA, and even in Brazil. I am a nursing student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love studying the anatomy and physiology of the human body. I think our bodies and all of the systems therein which allow us to function are breathtakingly beautiful. I also love to be active and play sports (particularly basketball) and hike mountains. I am an avid reader, and have forgotten how many times I have read the Harry Potter series.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because in prayer I asked Heavenly Father if this was the true church and He sent His Spirit to testify the truth of this gospel in my heart. I felt a peace and a joy in my soul that is beyond description, and every time I draw near unto Him in prayer I feel that same peace calming my troubled heart. I know that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I know that just like in the times of Adam, Noah, and Moses, prophets are still called on the Earth today. Heavenly Father loves His children today, just as he did 2,000 years ago and He will not leave them alone if they come unto Him. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world, and through his Atoning sacrifice our sins can be made white as snow. I know that He was resurrect, and I know that Christ lives!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by not only attending church on Sundays, but by making it a part of who I am everyday. I try everyday to study the gospel as Jesus Christ has taught us both while he was on the Earth, and through prophets who wrote down their revelations in the scriptures. I try to become a better person everyday by trying to exercise more love and kindness towards others, and by continually trying to keep the commandments that Christ has given us. I love my Heavenly Father, and Savior, Jesus Christ and I try to be more like him everyday. And when I fail, I know that His Atonement can help me get back on track.
